Ernesto Valverde's team did not succumb to the pressure of the Real Madrid, which on Tuesday afternoon had hit Eibar (0-4) in Ipurua to stalk the leadership of the Catalans. Those of Zinedine Zidane had enough with half an hour to decant their clash against the set 'armorer', who could not lend a hand to Barca scratching some point against the Real Madrid players.
The Blaugranas also did not have too many problems to get rid of Celta de Vigo due to the formidable performance of Leo Messi, who scored three goals and gave a chair of foul shots against the Galicians. Three new points that serve to lead LaLiga with Real Madrid, although Barca remains as first because of the goal difference.
In addition, it must also be borne in mind that there are two teams that enter strongly in the top positions placing themselves to a single point of whites and Barca. The first of them is him Atletico de Madrid, who managed to beat Espanyol in the Wanda Metropolitano (3-1) and break with the dynamics of his last matches, which were accounted for by punctures.
For its part, Julen Lopetegui's Sevilla closed the day this Sunday taking the three points in the great Sevillian derby against Real Betis, which was played at Benito Villamarin. A very complicated duel for Hispanics, who won with a tight 1-2 thanks to the goals of Ocampos and De Jong, which were imposed on Loren.
Granada loses strength
Granada became the leader of the First Division until a few days ago, but the streak of the Andalusian team has been thrown over the ground in recent days and the Nasrid team has been defeating for three consecutive times, the last one against Valencia (2-0). The Valencians do begin to uncover their best version and, with two victories in a row, they approach European positions.
