Barcelona, Real Madrid Drop Points in La Liga
Real Madrid failed to capitalize on Barcelona’s early slump as both teams dropped points after draw against Atl Bilbao and Celta Vigo respectively. Barcelona played 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon after goals from goals from Messi and Suarez could not get full points for them at Camp Nou. And unfortunately, Real Madrid league frustration continues as Real Madrid could not take advantage of Barca’s slump, playing a goalless draw at Bilbao.
Valencia would be playing away at Getafe on Sunday and would relish the chance to close the gap to two points behind Barcelona if they get all three points. Real Madrid stays at fourth, ten points off the top of the table. It’s proving to be a difficult league season for Zidane who has had a stellar previous two seasons. Much to Real’s frustration, Sergio Ramos picked up a red card towards the end of the game, that being his 19th and top the record for most red carded player in La liga’s history.
