The leader Real Madrid wins with a goal from Marco Asensio

El líder Real Madrid gana con gol de Marco Asensio

Real Madrid extended its advantage as leader thanks to its long-suffering 1-0 victory over Granada (16th), this Sunday in matchday 23 of the Spanish LaLiga, in which Barcelona won 4-2 over Atlético de Madrid and snatched that rival fourth place, within the Champions League zone.

After Sevilla’s goalless draw (2nd) on Saturday at Osasuna (12th), Real Madrid had a great opportunity to distance themselves in the table and they didn’t fail, despite having a hard time finding their way.

Marco Asensio, with a long shot with his left foot, scored the only goal of the night at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, in the 77th minute.

A few hours earlier, Barça had achieved a crucial victory over Atlético at the Camp Nou (4-2), which allowed them to enter the ‘Champions zone’, a priority objective for the club due to its difficult financial situation.

Jordi Alba (minute 10), Gavi (21), the Uruguayan Ronald Araújo (43) and the Brazilian Dani Alves (49) signed the Barça goals at the Camp Nou.

Atlético had gone ahead in the 8th minute with a goal from the Belgian Yannick Carrasco and in the 59th the Uruguayan Luis Suárez had headed the final 4-2 on the scoreboard.

Neither that goal from the Uruguayan ‘Pistolero’, a former Barça player, nor the expulsion of Dani Alves in minute 68 allowed Atlético to rejoin the match.

Barcelona came within just two points of the third party, Betis, who lost 2-0 at home against Villarreal (6th).

The goals of the ‘Yellow Submarine’ in his trip to Seville were achieved by Pau Torres in 41 and by the Frenchman Etienne Capoue in 83.

In the first game on Sunday, Real Sociedad (7th) drew goalless against Valencia (11th).
