Seville – Almeria (2-1)

The Santander League working day 25

“It has been a very suffered victory. I wish my partner Bono a speedy recovery and I hope he is well. We have achieved three very important points,” said Dmitrovic, Sevilla’s Serbian goalkeeper, who came on in the 37th minute and saved the team from him while Bono was recovering in hospital from a blow to the head. The evolution of the Moroccan goalkeeper is good, as good, almost vital, it was the victory of a Sevilla that does not know very well how they obtained those three points against an Almería that was much better, especially in the second half, and that they deserved, as minimum, the tie. Dmitrovic’s two stops against Luis Suárez were decisive in Sevilla’s victory in the regional derby. information Rafael Pineda.

Villarreal – Betis (1-1)

A goal from Villarreal’s Yeremi Pino ten minutes into the second half neutralized Borja Iglesias’ goal that allowed Real Betis to go into the break with an advantage on the scoreboard in the duel at the La Cerámica stadium. A mistake by the Villarreal goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, who let the ball slip, made it convenient for the Betic attacker to put his team ahead in the 38th minute of a very even first half. In the second half the duel was even, but Yeremi Pino broke the tie in the 55th minute and although Villarreal was more incisive in the final stretch of the clash in search of victory, in the end the match closed with a point for each team.

Athletic – Barcelona (0-1)

Even San Mamés validated the 0-1 to which Barça has subscribed. The blaugrana will arrive at the derby with a nine-point advantage after adding their ninth league victory by 1-0 or 0-1, it doesn’t matter, against an unlucky and unfortunate Athletic. In the absence of football, two VAR plays were counted that certified Barça’s victory: one validated Raphinha’s goal and the other annulled Iñaki Williams somewhat against the harshness of San Mamés. information Ramon Kiss.

Real Madrid – Espanyol (3-1)

Nothing new in Chamartín. As is the tradition since April 21, 1996, Madrid beat Espanyol, whose last victory at La Castellana dates back 27 years. Half an hour of drive in the first act was enough for Real to overcome Joselu’s sporadic goal. Nothing more said Espanyol, timorous all day, even though they reached the last stretch with a 2-1. Vinicius and Militão turned the parrots around before the final firecracker from Nacho, the player of the match by many circumstances. information Jose Samano.

Elche-Valladolid (1-1)

The Santander League working day 25

A goal from Tete Morente in extra time allowed Elche to score a point against Real Valladolid, who paid for their overconfidence and was on the verge of losing a match that they had completely controlled after playing the last minutes with eight players. The game, with hardly any intensity and easily controlled by Pacheta’s team, unexpectedly fell apart in discount, when Elche’s goal came accompanied by two expulsions that gave the local team the option of adding a victory that seemed impossible . The match began in the worst possible way for Elche and in the best for Valladolid, since in minute 4 a shot from Larin, a pass from Olaza, ended up in the net after hitting Magallán in the face of Edgar Badía’s impotence. The goal woke up Elche, who seconds later and as a reflex act had the option of equalizing after a personal action by Lucas Boyé that Asenjo neutralized with a great save. After the initial shootout, Real Valladolid slowed down the game by stretching their possessions at the rate set by Aguado. (Agencies)

Celtic – Rayo Vallecano (3-0)

The Santander League working day 25

Celta de Vigo gains air in the standings after beating Rayo Vallecano 3-0, who succumb in Balaídos to a brace from Iago Aspas and another goal from winger Carles Pérez. Two of the goals came at the start of the second half, just after Raúl de Tomás smashed a shot off the post after a monumental mistake by Unai Núñez when the ball was released. (Agencies)

Valencia – Osasuna (1-0)

The Santander League working day 25

An inside strike from Justin Kluivert’s right foot, full of class and calm, gave Valencia victory and lifted the bat team out of the relegation zone. In his first appearance in the eleven, since the arrival of Rubén Baraja to the Mestalla bench, the effervescent Dutch striker earned his salary with a talented goal and an important contribution in defensive commitment. Minutes before the goal, neither the referee Iglesias Villanueva nor his teammates in the VAR detected a penalty on Samu Lino by Lucas Torró. The Brazilian, on loan from Atlético, had the second in the final stretch from a header from Sergio Herrera. The referee, who had gone to the monitor to eliminate two previous red cards against Sergio Herrera and Aimai, returned to review a penalty on Thierry de Brasanac just before discount. Hugo Duro, to give him more tension at the end of the game, threw him out. Valencia and Osasuna, the two teams with the least goals -five for the black and whites and six for the reds- since the return of the league after the World Cup, played a balanced match that broke the talent of Kluivert junior. information Save Folgado.

Cádiz – Getafe (2-2)

Distribution of points between Cádiz and Getafe in a match marked by tension, penalties and VAR explosions. Both teams fight for permanence and it was noted in the intensity of the clash, which ended in a brawl and with Cádiz very angry at the referee’s decisions. It was the people from Madrid who improved, but they ran into Ledesma in the first half. However, the home team would be more effective and went ahead at halftime thanks to a goal from Sobrino. After the restart, Cádiz seemed more comfortable but the VAR ordered an absurd penalty by Escalante on Unal that the Turkish striker converted into an equaliser. The Uruguayan midfielder was able to make up for his mistake by forcing the 2-1 penalty, which Duarte committed by hand. Alcaraz scored ten minutes from time and Getafe was left with ten after the second yellow from the Portuguese. It seemed that the Andalusians would add their fourth consecutive victory at home, but a kilometric discount of ten minutes would still hold surprises. In the last play of the game, a handball by Espino inside the area (also reviewed in the VAR) allowed the final tie and the twelfth goal for Unal, a bulwark for the azulones. Both teams are still separated by one point in a very even low zone. information Victor Delgado.
