La Liga

Real Madrid moved top of la Liga with victory over Barcelona in El classico

No doubt real Madrid is one of the best teams in the world if not the overall best. El classicos are one of the most watched sports events in the universe and yesterday was no exception.

The points between the three top la Liga teams clearly pointed to the fact that, yesterday's encounter was not only competitive but crucial in a bid to win a tight competition like the Spanish la Liga.

Real Madrid moved top of La Liga with victory over Barcelona in an El Clasico played in torrential rain at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

Karim Benzema broke the deadlock with a sublime near-post flick – his ninth goal in his past seven La Liga games.

This score line places real Madrid on level grounds with Atletico but the controversial head to head places real Madrid ahead of Atletico.

But this top spot for real Madrid can be short lived since Atletico are going face to face with real Betis and even a draw for Atletico Madrid will see them jumped on top of the la Liga.

This season's Spanish La Liga is one of the most competitive despite the covid 19 pandemic and fans of the la Liga should expect more drama since it's early days yet to make any conclusions about the la Liga.

At it stands now any of the top three teams can emerged leaders of the la Liga so it's early days yet as I said earlier for supporters of any of the top three teams to start jubilating or making merry.

They can only be hopeful and keep their fingers crossed and watch how events partaining to the la Liga unfold.
