Day 23 of the League |  Schedules, match results and summary |  Sports

The Spanish league is playing its 23rd matchday this weekend. The week of European competitions has left the tie on track for Real Madrid in the Champions League and the elimination of Barcelona in the Europa League, where Sevilla has qualified. Xavi’s men have not been able to recover from a new European disappointment and fell (1-0) against Almería. Athletic lost to Girona at home (2-3) this Sunday, while Celta comfortably defeated Valladolid (3-0). On Saturday, Real Madrid drew against Atlético in the Madrid derby at the Santiago Bernabéu (1-1). Osasuna prevailed (2-3) in Seville and Villarreal defeated (2-1) in Getafe.

These are the matches of the day:

Athletic – Girona (2-3)

In football you see very strange things sometimes. Girona with three goals on the scoreboard despite scoring just one, the other two on their own because Athletic players scored, and the rojiblanco team pressing with one less player after Morcillo’s injury, to be one step away from drawing when in 89 they lost 1-3. In the end, with suffering, the visitors won. information Jon Rivas.

Celtic-Valladolid (3-0)

The Santander League working day 23

Celta contributed to their improvement in recent weeks with a solid win against Real Valladolid, with homegrown player Gabri Veiga as the main protagonist, participating in all three goals for the Galician team. The O Porriño midfielder assisted Seferovic to score the first goal, a cross that the Swiss connected at the far post with a header into the back of the net. After half an hour, he scored the first of his private account with a close shot that Sergio Asenjo did not reach. Before leaving the field with a resounding ovation and before the referee disallowed Amallah’s goal for offside, Veiga sealed the match by hunting down a rejection after a shot from De la Torre. The people from Vigo move away from danger, the one that Valladolid is close to. (Agencies)

Almeria – Barcelona (1-0)

Barça lost their appetite for the League the day they were able to bill half a title after Madrid drew with Atlético at the Bernabéu. The draw in the Madrid derby did not exactly stimulate the Catalans, but instead used the reluctance of a team that, if it reached the lead, was more for running than for playing, for stealing the ball than for developing its football, for winning the areas with Ter Stegen and Lewandowski. The goalkeeper conceded the eighth goal of the tournament and the striker did not appear in a grotesque appointment for Barcelona. The 1-0 so associated with the azulgrana played for once against them and in favor of Almería. The Barça chaos contrasted with the organization set up by Rubi and the Andalusians were finally able to claim victory against an opponent whom they could not break in 13 League games and two Cup games. information Ramon Kiss.

Seville – Osasuna (2-3)

Osasuna deservedly won the victory to end their losing streak and condemn Sevilla to continue in the bottom of the table. The Navarrese team took perfect advantage of the state of nerves of a deranged team, which is flan in defense and is unable to control the games. The second goal conceded by Sevilla is the best example of the state of mind of a group that plays football too excited. His best man, Bono, failed resoundingly, the ball bounced off Fernando and went into the goal. The great goals from Gudelj and En-Nesyri were of no use to Sevilla because they are an absolutely unbalanced team. Their defensive system is a disaster, conceding goals with terrible ease. All the ghosts appear again to the Andalusian team, which was trying to look at the top of the table and found an unexpected blow after four straight league victories in their stadium. information Rafael Pineda.

Villarreal – Getafe (2-1)

The Santander League working day 23

Villarreal came out of its bad dynamics and rejoined the fight for Europe after beating a Getafe that remains in the relegation zone on Monday, in the match that closed the twenty-third day of LaLiga Santander 2022-2023. The Castellón team had four consecutive defeats and despite suffering a lot in the first half against the good azulón approach, they were able to equalize Enes Unal’s goal with a goal on the stroke of halftime from Chukwueze, which was a hard blow for the visitors . Already in the second half, Morales gave an important victory to Setién’s men. information PS.

Elche-Betis (2-3)

The Santander League working day 23

Betis obtained a vital tinfo against Elche in a clash with four penalties, two sent off and a disconcerting refereeing performance, both by the field referee, Iglesias Villanueva, and by Jaime Latre in the VAR room. If it is difficult to understand calling the first penalty against Betis due to a slight touch from Abner to Morente from Betis, it is not very easy to understand how the VAR chief referee saw red in a Magallán hand in an action with Fekir with the 2- 0 on the scoreboard. The expulsion broke down Elche, who had a brilliant start and was later surpassed by a Betis who subjected them to tremendous harassment in numerical superiority. Elche is right in their complaints about that expulsion and they should feel even more anger after their goalkeeper, Edgar Badía, saved Borja’s penalty with 2-2 on the scoreboard. There was yet another maximum penalty in the 95th minute that Willian José became the final 2-3. A real madness. information Rafael Pineda.

Espanyol-Mallorca (2-1)

The Santander League working day 23

A double from the Danish Martin Braithwaite, who scored in the 22nd and 51st minutes, was enough for Espanyol to defeat Mallorca at the RCDE Stadium and signed three essential points to distance themselves from the relegation zone of the LaLiga Santander table. The Balearic team always looked for a tie and they modified it at the end of the first half thanks to Kosvar Vedat Muriqi, in minute 51. However, the parakeets showed greater success in the final meters and deactivated the visitors’ chances, despite the fact that the clash began with dominance of those of the Mexican Javier Aguirre.

Cádiz – Rayo Vallecano (1-0)

Cádiz achieved a vital victory against Rayo Vallecano in a highly contested duel. A goal from Sergi Guardiola in the second half gave victory to the Andalusians, who have reached 25 points and come out of the relegation places. Rayo, ranked sixth, put an end to their good run of results, since they had gone four straight games without losing (two wins and two draws). The Madrid team barely had chances to score against a Cádiz team that first defended itself with great order and risked something more in the second half to find the decisive goal thanks to Guardiola. The forward, winter reinforcement, scored his second goal to give his team three very important points. The goal came after an excellent pass from Espino behind the Rayo defense, where Guardiola burst in to score against Dimitrievski, his former teammate. Rayo tried it in the final stretch of the clash and had a great chance at Ciss’s feet, although his shot went high. The final stretch was harrowing, with a 12-minute discount and Rayo pressing. Cádiz was saved, which sustained its triumph in the Cádiz Carnival Saturday in a wonderful way. information Rafael Pineda.

Real Madrid – Atlético de Madrid (1 – 1)

The knockout Madrid from Anfield was left without a punch against a resistant Atlético. Not even against ten half an hour. A blank Real, dry, unable to scan an opponent with little offensive perspective, but a musketeer on the periphery of Oblak. Giménez, already with Atlético without the ridiculously expelled Correa, put a neighbor in check who Álvaro rescued a point, the best Real Madrid news. Ancelotti’s box lacked rhythm, better expertise with the ball, always very predictable. Simeone’s team, with little arsenal from the starting lineup, it was enough to tie up the rival. information Jose Samano.

Valencia – Real Sociedad (1 – 0)

The Santander League working day 23

Rubén Baraja made his debut last night at Mestalla as First Division coach with a vital victory against Real Sociedad with which to feed the guts of his famished Valencia. The eleven of the bat, the worst team in Europe in 2023, won a victory that momentarily takes it out of relegation.
