Athl Bilbao V Real Madrid

Nacho's striker gives Real Madrid all 3 points over Athletic Bilbao [video] - RESULT: 0 - 1

Real Madrid defender, Nacho Fernández scored a lucky goal to help the Blancos defeat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 at the San Mames.

 

The only goal in the game was scored just a few minutes after the hour mark, after Casemiro's shot hit Nacho's shin, and into the back of the net. The goal could have been chalked off for offside, but the VAR team allowed the goal stand, as Benzema, who attempted to hit the ball from an offside position did not touch the ball.

 

 

Athletic Bilbao's hope of making the Europa League ended after the loss. Real Madrid, on the other hand, will have to wait till the final say as they hope to defend the La Liga title, but their fate is in Atlético Madrid's hands.

 

Do you think Real Madrid will win the league?

Atl Madrid V Real Sociedad

Atletico Madrid edge closer to La Liga title with a win over Real Sociedad - RESULT: 2 - 1

Atlético Madrid moved one step closer to winning the Spanish La Liga, after defeating Real Sociedad 2-1 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

In the 16th minute, Yannick Carrasco broke the deadlock, following a chip pass from Marcos Llorente, and the Belgian finished well. In the 28 minutes, the home side made it 2-0 after Luis Suarez showed strength to set up Ángel Correa, who finished well. Igor Zubeldia pulled one back for the visitors in the 83rd minute after a corner kick dropped for him, but they couldn't get a point.

 

 

Atlético Madrid are now edging closer to winning their first La Liga title since 2014, and they just need to win the 2 remaining games to be champions, while remain 5th on the log.

Chelsea V Arsenal

Arsenal beat Chelsea at the break to keep Europa dream alive [video] - RESULT: 0 - 1

Arsenal defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge as the Gunners ended their jinx in the London derby against the Blues.

 

Summer signing, Kai Havertz missed a sitter early on in the game, but it was the Gunners who scored the only goal, after Joginho's poor ball was saved off his line by Kepa Arrizabalaga, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave a pass to Emile Smith Rowe, who scored in the 16th minute. 

 

 

Chelsea's hope of securing their Champions League place has been postponed, and they missed the chance to go above Leicester City. Arsenal have now defeated the Blues home and away for the first time in 17 years, and have kept their Europa League dream alive, as they moved up to 8. 

 

Do you think Arsenal will qualify for the Europa League?
