La Liga Roundup – Round 33

logo lfp la liga La Liga Roundup   Round 33
Ladies & Gentlemen, the chase for the title of Spanish La Liga champion just got more interesting. Round 33 came quickly after Round 32 featured midweek matches. Round 33 was a dream for Real Madrid fans as Barcelona finally dropped points to make Los Merengues chances for a 32nd La Liga title a strong possibility. Barcelona needed an 86th minute goal from Thierry Henry to equalize 2-2 on the road against Valencia. The draw ended Barca’s 7 game winning streak and allowed Real to close to within 4 points of their lead.

Real Madrid got a hat trick by their icon, Raúl to beat Sevilla 4-2 on the road. The win extended Real’s amazing run under Juande Ramos to 18 games unbeaten in La Liga with only 1 draw in that span. Real Madrid’s last loss in La Liga was the 2-0 defeat to Barca in the Camp Nou on December 13th. Sevilla has lost 4 straight and lead Valencia by 1 point for 3rd place. The Barca draw & Real’s win set up an exciting and intense Spanish SuperClásico next Saturday.

Villarreal moved back into a European spot as they held off Getafe 2-1 on the road. The Yellow Submarine jumped out to a 2-0 lead on the strength of goals from Joan Capdevila and Joseba Llorente. Villarreal now sits in 5th place just 2 points back of 3rd place Sevilla.

Espanyol continued its inspiring climb from the bottom of the table to safety with an important 2-0 win over Real Betis. Barcelona’s other team is unbeaten in its last 5 matches having won the last 4 and are 2 points out of the relegation zone with Valencia as their next opponent.
