Real Madrid regained the lead

Real Madrid regained the leadership of La Liga by winning this Sunday 1-0 on the ground of Espanyol and marked distance with Barcelona, ​​which tied on Saturday 2-2 against Celta.

Before this weekend, the white team was tied for first place with its great Catalan rival, but now it exceeds it by two points, just when there are only six days left until the end of the championship.

Casemiro, in the 45th minute, scored the only goal of the match, taking advantage of an extraordinary pass from Karim Benzema.

The white team kept the margin in the second half, but suffered a lot in the last minutes, when Espanyol even flirted with the draw.

In 86, the Colombian Bernardo Espinosa was about to reach a dangerous center and in 90 + 4 an attempt by the Argentine Jonathan Calleri failed the net.

Real Madrid have won all five games they have played in LaLiga since the restart.

Espanyol, meanwhile, remains last in the table and had already announced the dismissal of their coach Abelardo Fernández on Saturday.
