Sensational draw by Atlético and great save by Lunin. La Liga tour results

Dmitry Storozhev February 28, 2024, 16:05 Moscow time

Girona broke its losing streak and Barcelona finally won with confidence.

Matchday 26 of La Liga has ended. One of their matches was postponed: the match between Valencia and Granada will take place later due to a fire in Valencia that claimed the lives of several people. The rest of the games brought us an incredible ending with a masterpiece goal, two stupid penalties and another sensational result. About these and other events, in our summary.

Hero of the tour: Santiago Comesaña (Villarreal)

Villarreal doesn’t have much to celebrate this season, so any victory against a club at the top of the table is already an event. Recently, the “yellow submarine” beat Barcelona and now turned out to be stronger than Sociedad. A key role was played by Spanish midfielder Santiago Comesaña, who scored his first home goals for Villarreal after arriving from Rayo. The guests extended their unbeaten streak in the league to six games, but at the end of the tour the Basques were left out of the European Cup zone for the first time in a long time.

Goal of the day: Darwin Machis (Cádiz)

It was a true six-point game, with teams from neighboring teams from both sides of the relegation zone taking to the Cádiz field. At the end of the hour, the Celts were safely leading by two goals, but the hosts quickly fell back a goal and had opportunities to restore the balance. It seemed that Rafa Benítez’s team would take the most important victory and move away from the bottom of the table, but a corner kick in the 10th minute (!) of added time changed everything. The visitors seemed to have secured their goal by taking the ball to the corner of the area, but Darwin Machis, who was running, decided to shoot instead of the expected cross. He came out irresistible: on the exit trajectory, the ball flew into the near upper corner and the Celta goalkeeper was left completely helpless.

Salvation of the Tour: Andrey Lunin (Real Madrid)

The championship leader had problems in the match against Sevilla and could have failed even before Luka Modric gave Real Madrid the victory. Shortly after the start of the second half, the visitors launched a counterattack. Ocampos crossed from the left wing and Romero, who was alone in the center of the area, was probably already sending the ball into the goal. Andrei Lunin saved Real from a certain goal: the goalkeeper showed an ultra-quick reaction and, while he was falling, he kicked the ball that was flying in the opposite direction.

Sensation of the Tour: Almería’s draw in the match against Atlético de Madrid

The Andalusians have not yet won this season, but for the third consecutive game they did not leave the field without points. This time, Almería “robbed” Atlético: the “colchoneros” went ahead twice, but on both occasions Luca Romero, who played the first match for the hosts, found an elegant way to respond to Madrid. 2:2 – This point did not help Almería much and Atlético distanced Barcelona even further.

Defeat on the Tour: Barcelona in the match against Getafe

For the first time in a long time, the victory of the “blue garnets” can be considered certain: Barcelona completely controlled the course of the match against Getafe and launched four unanswered goals at the opponent. Thanks to Atlético’s failure, Xavi’s team consolidated its position in third place and was able to continue chasing Girona, winner of this day. But he is still far from Real Madrid.

As was:

Barça made fun of an uncomfortable rival. This had not happened for almost eight years.

Curiosity of the tour: own goal by Juri Bercice (Athletic)

Betis’ winning goal in the match against the Basques was quite uncomfortable: after a cross from Fekir from the left wing and an adjustment from Willian, José Unai Simón was able to hit the ball, but directly at his teammate. Jüri Bercice could not influence the unfortunate rebound: he could only watch the ball cross Athletic’s goal line. The visitors suffered their first defeat in a month and missed a great opportunity to level on points with Atlético.

Tour nonsense: Nico Williams (Athletic) / Pep Chavarría (Rayo Vallecano)

Athletic were left partly disappointed by their own striker: at the end of the first half, Williams committed a foul near his own area, for which he received a yellow card. The striker welcomed the referee’s decision with sarcastic applause, immediately received a second mustard strip and went to rest before the others.

The dismissal of the Rayo defender was no less stupid. Chavarría received his first yellow card for a foul near the opponent’s area, and literally in the next episode of the game he hit Eric García with his elbow in the face; The referee did not forgive him. The Spaniard was on the field for only 12 minutes: in the 64th minute he came on as a substitute and in the 76th minute he left the field. In his absence, the losing Rayo conceded two more goals.

Barça and Girona have the same possibilities!


Analysts updated their forecast for the league winner. Does Girona have a chance?

Remaining matches of matchday 26 of La Liga

Alavés shared points with their rivals for the third time in a row: the Basques took the lead 14 minutes before the end of regulation time, but lost the return goal in the 88th minute. Mallorca, despite the tie, still cannot feel safe: Six points separate the islanders from the relegation zone. Furthermore, yesterday the team unexpectedly reached the final of the national cup.


Real Sociedad drama in the penalty shootout. Zakharyan was left without a trophy!

The neighbors in the table also decided to go their separate ways: Las Palmas and Osasuna each scored a goal at the beginning of the second half, and that was it. It is a bit far from the European Cup zone for both teams, but the distance from the relegation zone is quite comfortable.
