La Liga: Barcelona edge past Bilbao, Real Madrid and Atletico play out draws

first_imgBarcelona moved two points clear at the top of La Liga table on Saturday after staging a comeback and winning 2-1 against Real Sociedad on Saturday.Real Madrid on the other hand, played out an entertaining 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames Stadium.Champions Barcelona fell behind at the Anoeta Stadium as early as the 12th minute when a thumping shot from Aritz Elustondo off a set-piece beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen and gave Sociedad the lead.The home side held the lead in the first half and came out attacking in the second as well but Barcelona managed to keep the goal away from their goal before Luis Suarez levelled in the 63rd with a scrappy goal to get the scores level. Ousmane Dembele then gave them a barely deserved lead three minutes later to turn the game in Barcelona’s favour.The win makes Barcelona the only team to still have a perfect record in Spain’s top flight, where they lead the standings with 12 points, two clear of Real Madrid.All over in Anoeta!Real Sociedad 1-2 FC BarcelonaAritz Elustondo / Suárez and Dembélé#RealSociedadBarça#ForçaBarça Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 15, 2018Visiting coach Ernesto Valverde decided to start his side’s arguably least favourite away trip without Philippe Coutinho and Sergio Busquets ahead of a jammed schedule of six games in 20 days.That gamble appeared to have backfired when Elustondo smashed home following a knock down from a corner.Valverde brought on Coutinho and Busquets early in the second half but their presence initially made little difference as Real Sociedad launched three counter attacks in quick succession, with only the presence of German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen preventing the home side from doubling their lead.advertisementBarely a minute after Ter Stegen had blocked a gaping chance for Juanmi, Uruguayan striker Suarez took advantage of some confusion in the area following a free kick and smashed home from close range to the disbelief of the home supporters.The Catalans took the lead following another set piece, Dembele sending the ball skidding in after goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli had flapped at a corner and left his net unguarded.HUGE WIN”I think you have to see a game like this to see how tough Liga is,” said Suarez.Last year we also came from behind to win here and eight or nine years ago we wouldn’t win any games here. It’s a huge win for our confidence.”Iker Muniain gave Athletic a deserved lead in the 32nd minute in Bilbao by bundling the ball home after Real failed to get back in time to defend a counter attack.Points shared at San Mamés. #RMLiga Madrid C.F. (@realmadriden) September 15, 2018Real were twice denied by Athletic’s impressive 21-year-old goalkeeper Unai Simon in the first half but finally beat the youngster when Isco nodded home a cross from Gareth Bale in the 63rd minute as Real improved after bringing on midfield anchor Casemiro at the start of the second half.Simon made two more outstanding saves to thwart Marco Asensio and Sergio Ramos although Athletic continued to counter, Inaki Williams smashing wide and the Basques being denied a penalty when the ball struck Casemiro on the arm while the Brazilian was on the floor.The decision enraged Athletic supporters in a hostile atmosphere at San Mames, which was mirrored on the pitch as referee Jose Luis Gonzalez Gonzalez handed out eight yellow cards, six to Athletic players.”This is a very difficult ground to come to, for the team they have and for how they play. They come looking for you, they press you man-for-man and make life hard for you and if you don’t find ways deal with that it’s tough,” said Real coach Julen Lopetegui.”That’s what happened in the first half but we improved a lot in the second and did enough to win. It was a very intense game, Athletic played their part well and we did our job in the second half.”BORJA SAVES ATLETICO’s BLUSHESBorja made his official debut for our club in this afternoon’s #AtletiEibar match at the Wanda @Metropolitano. #AúpaAtleti #AtletiEibarético de Madrid (@atletienglish) September 15, 2018Atletico Madrid averted an embarrassing home defeat to minnows Eibar by drawing 1-1 thanks to a strike from teenage debutant Borja Garces deep in injury time but continued their poor start to the La Liga season.advertisementEibar, one of the smallest teams in the top flight, took a shock lead with three minutes remaining at the Wanda Metropolitano when striker Sergi Enrich stabbed the ball in from close range after soft goalkeeping from Jan Oblak.Atletico had dominated proceedings but were frequently thwarted by Eibar’s Serbian keeper Marko Dmitrovic and it took the unlikely figure of academy graduate Garces, 19, to pull them level in the 94th minute, thumping the ball home after controlling a cut-back from Angel Correa.Atletico have only five points from their opening four games.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
