Week 11 in review
Huesca climbed out of the bottom three on Friday evening as they managed a 1-0 win on the road against Elche, Jaime Seoane scoring the only goal of the game just after the break to hand them only their second win of the season.
Sunday’s programme of fixtures began with midtable Granada winning 2-0 as they hosted Athletic Bilbao, while Real Sociedad moved into the European qualification spots thanks to another goal from the in-form Alex Isak as they won 1-0 away at Valladolid.
The main game of the day was undoubtedly the Sevilla derby, where Real Betis thumped their neighbours 5-1 in a thrilling attacking display, Sevilla having the further indignity of finishing the game with just 10 men after Diego Carlos was sent off 78 minutes in, although by that point the damage had largely been done with the visitors already leading 3-1 at the time.
There were also goals aplenty in the 7 PM kick-offs, most notably at the Ipurua where visitors Atlético Madrid claimed a 5-3 win in an eight goal thriller against Eibar, Ángel Correa grabbing a hat-trick for the away side, his final goal and a late strike from Yannick Carrasco at the death ensuring the visitors left with all 3 points. Barcelona temporarily returned to top spot with a comfortable 3-0 win away against Cádiz, while Real Madrid also temporarily moved up a spot with their 4-0 win at home against Levante, Eden Hazard helping himself to another 2 goals as the reigning champions temporarily moved 2nd.
A solitary Raúl Albiol goal was enough to secure the win for Villarreal, ending the impressive form of Osasuna, while Alavés and Celta Vigo played out a 2-2 draw in their mid table clash. The late game saw Valencia return to top spot with their comfortable 2-0 win at home to Getafe, who ended the game with 10 men after Victor Mollejo was sent marching for a dangerous tackle late on.Share this:
