First division – day 38

Huesca have been promoted to the first division for the first time in their history after they beat Lugo 0-2 in the Monday night game! (21.05.18)

The last round of league games of the season took place this weekend, although with all issues already decided, it was much quieter than usual. On Saturday Real Madrid put out a line-up similar to that expected for next week’s Champions League final (except for Zidane’s son Luca in goal), but they could still only draw 2-2 with Villarreal, early strikes by Bale and Ronaldo cancelled out by second half goals from Roger Martínez and Samu Castillejo. Villarreal take fifth spot, ahead of Betis, who lost 3-2 at Leganés, and Sevilla, who beat Alavés 1-0. Getafe and Girona ended what for both has been an excellent season with wins at the relegated Málaga (0-1) and Las Palmas (1-2) respectively, and Celta finished their campaign with a 4-2 victory over Levante, Maxi Gómez and Iago Aspas getting a brace each there.

On Sunday there were emotive goodbyes for two of Spain’s most important figures in recent years, Iniesta and Fernando Torres. Iniesta (and also Real’s Xabi Prieto) left the field to a standing ovation as league champions Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 1-0, Inesta’s supposed replacement Coutinho getting the only goal in the second half. And “El Niño” scored both goals as Atlético Madrid drew 2-2 against Eibar to end the season in second place, adding to the Europa League title they won midweek. Valencia meanwhile celebrated their fourth spot with a 2-1 victory over the third team to go down, Deportivo (the fourteen point gap between the bottom three and the rest one of the biggest in recent years), and Athletic Bilbao’s disappointing season came to a sad end with a 0-1 defeat against Espanyol.

All that remains to be decided is which three teams will be promoted from the second division, which still has a couple of weeks to go. However a defeat for third placed Sporting Gijón at Tenerife on Friday evening has left the way open for Rayo Vallecano and Huesca to take the two direct promotion spots. Rayo will have to wait a little longer though after they lost 4-0 at neighbours Alcorcón; Huesca (who have never been in the top flight) play on Monday. Elsewhere the play-offs for promotion to the second division started this weekend, with Mallorca and Cartagena getting the edge over Mirandés and Rayo Majadahonda in the first legs of their respective group champions play-offs. (20.05.18)

Europa League final

Olympique Marseille 0 - Atlético Madrid 3

Atlético Madrid are Europa League champions for the third time in nine years after they beat Olympique Marseille 0-3 in this year’s final! The French side had the better of the opening play, but with twenty minutes gone some slack defending allowed Griezmann to open the scoring. Five minutes in to the second half Griezmann made it two after Koke set him up, and although Mitroglou headed against the post, Gabi wrapped things up in the final minutes. (16.05.18)

First division – day 37

Levante did what no other team has done this season, beat Barcelona in the league! The Catalans were looking to finish the current campaign unbeaten, but a much changed line-up (with Messi rested) incredibly found themselves 5-1 down with less than an hour gone, Boateng netting a hat-trick and Bardhi adding a brace. Coutinho scored two more after that to clock up his own hat-trick, and Luis Suárez pegged it back to 5-4 from the penalty spot, but the locals held on for an epic win. Earlier on Sunday Barcelona’s city rivals Espanyol won 4-1 against bottom club Málaga, Gerard Moreno, Sergio García, Leo Baptistao and Piatti the scorers there. (13.05.18)

The penultimate round of games of the season, and Sevilla will take the last Europa League spot after a 2-2 draw at city rivals Betis on Saturday evening. They will have to enter at the play-off stage of the competition though as the two direct spots are already taken by Betis themselves, and by Villarreal, who won 2-4 at Deportivo. Sevilla are now three points clear of Getafe after they lost 0-1 at Atlético Madrid, and with the head-to-head record in favour of Joaquín Caparrós’s side, they can’t now be overtaken. Atlético meanwhile (who put out a full strength side despite the upcoming Europa League final), stay three points ahead of their city neighbours Real Madrid, who thrashed Celta 6-0, a result which ensured them of at least third spot, despite Valencia’s 0-1 victory at Girona. Elsewhere Real Sociedad won 3-2 against Leganés, Alavés beat Athletic Bilbao 3-1, and Eibar won 1-0 against Las Palmas, all matches with nothing at stake. (12.05.18)

First division – day 34 (rescheduled games)

The two matches that were postponed due to the Spanish cup final were played on Wednesday night, Barcelona kicking things off with a 5-1 victory over Villarreal which keeps them on track to become the first Liga side ever to finish the league season unbeaten. Coutinho and Paulinho put Valverde’s team two up early on, and Messi combined with Iniesta for the third just before the break. Sansone replied for the visitors after the restart, but Dembélé netted twice in the last five minutes or so to complete the scoring. Villarreal stay in sixth spot, now just three points above Sevilla, who beat a depleted Real Madrid 3-2 later in the evening. Strikes by Ben Yedder and Layún gave the Andalusians a two goal lead at the break, and after the interval Sergio Ramos fired a penalty against the crossbar before putting through his own net with ten minutes to go. Borja Mayoral headed one back though, and Ramos converted a second penalty in injury time, but Caparrós’s side held on for a win which takes them back to seventh, two points above Getafe. The result though takes out all other contenders for the last Europa League spot, and with Betis already qualified for the competition and Villarreal almost there, it will be between those two for that final place. (09.05.18)

Match round-up - First Division, Day 36

One match on Monday night with nothing at stake, Levante winning 0-3 at Leganés to move above their hosts in the table. All the goals came after the break, Morales, Bardhi and Coke scoring to make it four victories in a row for the Valencia based side. (07.05.18)

Everybody expected the latest “clásico” between Barcelona and Real Madrid to be a damp squib as neither had anything to play for, but in the end it turned out to be an entertaining match, the Catalans holding on to their unbeaten league record after the game ended 2-2. Both coaches put out their best line-ups, and with only a quarter of an hour gone Ronaldo had already equalised Luis Suárez’s opener. The locals had to play the entire second half with ten men after Sergi Roberto was sent off, but Messi restored the lead after the restart, and Bale levelled it once again a few minutes later. Barça are now twelve points clear at the top of the table after second placed Atlético lost 0-2 to Espanyol earlier in the afternoon. Savic headed a shot from Melendo in to his own net early on in the second half, and Leo Baptistao added a second to hand Simeone’s side their first league defeat in the new Metropolitano stadium. Getafe meanwhile are back up to seventh after a late 0-1 victory at Las Palmas, Shibasaki setting up Angel for the only goal to take the Madrid based team a point above Sevilla. Elsewhere Alavés won 0-3 at Málaga in the mid-day kick-off, Manu García opening the scoring in the third minute, and Demirovic and Ibai Gómez bagging two more after the interval. (06.05.18)

Valencia were beaten 1-0 by regional neighbours Villarreal in the last game on Saturday evening, although the Ches had already secured the fourth Champions League spot after fifth placed Betis lost earlier in the day. Mario headed the only goal for the locals near the end to consolidate their sixth spot, and they are now only two points below Betis, who were beaten 2-0 by Athletic Bilbao. Muniain and Aduríz got the goals in the last quarter of an hour to hand the Andalusians their first defeat in nine games, although they felt hard done by after having a goal controversially disallowed before Aduríz wrapped things up. With the Champions League and relegation places already clear, the only thing to be decided is which two teams will join Betis in the Europa League next season. Villarreal are almost there (and will be if Getafe don’t win tomorrow), but no less than six clubs are still in with a chance of the last berth. Eibar kept their hopes alive with a 1-4 victory over Girona in the early kick-off, Kike Garcia scoring twice before Aday got one back, and Inui setting up Jordán and then getting the fourth himself near the end. That took the Basques to within a point of their hosts, and Celta are a point behind them, level with Real Sociedad, after a 1-1 draw with arch-rivals Deportivo. The Galicians will not be happy though after a last minute strike by Lucas Pérez for the already relegated side cancelled out Maxi Gómez’s early opener. (05.05.18)

Sevilla got their European campaign back on track with a 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad on Friday evening. The Andalusians fired coach Montella midweek and replaced him with old warhorse Joaquín Caparrós after they dropped out of the top seven, but a Banega penalty at the start of the second half took them back above Getafe pending the rest of the weekend games. (04.05.18)

Europa League, semi finals, second leg

Atlético Madrid 1 - Arsenal 0

There will be a Madrid team in each of the European finals this year after Atlético beat Arsenal 1-0 in their Europa League semi-final! After the 1-1 draw in the first leg, Arsene Wenger’s side needed to score, but Oblak was hardly troubled in the first half. Diego Costa and Griezmann did go close at the other end though, and with half time approaching the two combined for Costa to run on and beat Ospina. After the restart Oblak had to save from Xhaka, and Ramsey and Mkhitaryan tried their luck, but Fernando Torres could have added to the lead late on. Atleti held on though to go through to meet Olympique Marseille in the final in Lyon, looking for their third title in the competition. (03.05.18)

Champions League, semi finals, second leg

Real Madrid 2 - Bayern Munich 2

Champions League final

Real Madrid are into their third Champions League final in succession after knocking out Bayern Munich in the semi-finals! Zidane’s side were defending a 1-2 win from the first leg, but with only three minutes on the clock Kimmich put the visitors in front. Benzema headed in Marcelo’s cross though to level the scores in the tenth minute, and the French striker added a second after keeper Ulreich allowed a soft Tolisso back pass through his hands just seconds after the restart. Before that though Keylor Navas had to save from Müller and Lewandowski, and Marcelo was lucky to be let off a penalty appeal when he blocked Kimmich’s cross with his arm. Some twenty minutes into the second half James (actually on-loan from Madrid) made it all square again, and another away goal would have taken Bayern through. However Navas made a string of saves later on to frustrate the continuous German attack, and Madrid will be in Kiev at the end of this month to try and set a new record of three Champions League titles in a row. (01.05.18)

Match round-up - First Division, Day 35

Betis made sure of their place in Europe for next season after they came from behind to beat Málaga 2-1 on Monday evening, and they even have a very remote chance of ousting Valencia for fourth spot going in to the last three games of the season. En-Nesyri gave the visitors the lead midway through the first half, but Durmisi equalised soon afterwards, and Fabián fired home the winner with a quarter of an hour or so to go. (30.04.18)

Barcelona are league champions for the seventh time in ten years and the 25th time in their history after a 2-4 victory at Deportivo on Sunday evening! Strikes by Coutinho and Messi put Valverde’s side two up, but goals by Lucas Pérez and Emre Çolak either side of half time pegged them back. Messi scored two more though in the last ten minutes to give the Catalans their second title in a week, and to send the Galicians down to the second division. Earlier in the afternoon Atlético Madrid kept up their push for the second spot with a 0-1 victory against Alavés, Gameiro getting the only goal from the penalty spot after the restart. Their main objective though is the Europa League, and Simeone rested several of his key players for Thursday’s semi-final tie with Arsenal. Atlético and Real Madrid have already secured their places in next season’s Champions League, but fourth placed Valencia will have to wait a little longer (at least until Betis play Málaga tomorrow) after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Eibar. The Basque side themselves still have an outside chance of making it into one of the three Europa League spots, although seventh place is currently held by Getafe after they drew 1-1 against Girona in the mid-day kick-off. Amath gave the Madrid based team the lead early on, but Stuani made it all square from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time to keep the Catalans a point below their hosts in the table. (29.04.18)

Levante made sure of their place in the top flight for next season with a 2-1 victory over Sevilla on Friday night. Roger opened the scoring for the Valencia based side, and although Carlos Fernández levelled it soon afterwards, Morales got the winner later on to make it six wins in eight games for caretaker coach Paco López. Levante are now level on forty points with three other teams, including Athletic Bilbao, Leganés, and Espanyol, who drew 1-1 with the already relegated Las Palmas on Saturday lunchtime. Calleri put the visitors in front, but Gerard Moreno saved a point for the hosts after the restart. Athletic Bilbao were beaten 3-1 by their old arch-enemy Real Sociedad later in the day, San José putting through his own net twice and Oyarzabal also on the scoresheet before Raúl García got one back from the penalty spot. And Leganés also lost 2-1 at neighbours Real Madrid, Bale and Borja Mayoral scoring for the locals (even though Zidane changed almost his entire line-up in the middle of their midweek Champions League semi-finals), and Brasanac netting for the visitors in the second half. All of that means that Deportivo are now just a point away from relegation, and if they don’t beat Barcelona on Sunday they will already be down (and Barça will also be confirmed as league champions!). Sevilla meanwhile decided to fire manager Montella and bring back Joaquín Caparrós in an attempt to save their Europa League spot, but they will be out of the top seven by the end of the weekend whatever the result tomorrow between Getafe and Girona (the two teams immediately below them), and Villarreal are now six points clear of the Andalusians after they beat Celta 4-1 in the last match of the evening. Bacca scored a first half hat-trick for the hosts, and although Pione Sisto replied for the Galicians, Samu Castillejo rounded things off in injury time. (28.04.18)

Europa League, semi finals, first leg

Arsenal 1 - Atlético Madrid 1

The city of Madrid may well have a team in each of the European finals this year, Atlético Madrid following up on Real’s victory yesterday with a 1-1 draw at Arsenal in Thursday’s Europa League semi-final first leg. Simeone’s team were up against it early on when Vrsaljko was sent off with only ten minutes on the clock after picking up two quick yellow cards, and the coach himself was also shown a red card for protesting a few minutes later. Oblak and his defence held on though until the break, but although Griezmann did test Ospina a couple of times at the other end, Lacazette headed the Premier League in front from Wilshire’s cross on the hour mark. With eight minutes to go however Griezmann ran on past Koscielny to pick up a long clearance and poke a shot in off Mustafi, and in the dying minutes Oblak produced the save of the night from Wilshire’s header to ensure the draw. (26.04.18)

Champions League, semi finals, first leg

Bayern Munich 1 - Real Madrid 2

Real Madrid are on track their third Champions League title in a row after a 1-2 victory at Bayern Munich in the first leg of their semi-final! Zidane’s side went behind when Kimmich ran through to beat Keylor Navas with just under half an hour gone, and Ribéry and Lewandowski could both have added to the lead after that. With half time approaching however Marcelo volleyed home the equaliser, and a few minutes after the restart half-time substitute Marco Asensio scored a second after combining with Lucas Vázquez on a quick breakaway. Navas had to keep out Ribéry a couple of times after that, and Müller and Lewandowski both failed to convert chances, but Ronaldo had a strike ruled out for hand ball, and Benzema brought a good save out of Ulreich near the end. Madrid must now be favourites, although, after the scare with Juventus in the last round, they will not be taking anything for granted. (25.04.18)

Match round-up - First Division, Day 34

Levante are almost safe for another season after they came from behind to beat Athletic Bilbao 1-3 on Monday evening. Raúl García fired the locals ahead early on with an impressive shot from outside of the area, but two direct free kicks in as many minutes from Bardhi just before the break turned the scoreline around, and “El Comandante” Morales ran through from his own half to wrap things up right at the end. Levante have now won five of the seven games since Paco López took over as caretaker manager, and they are now nine points clear of Deportivo with only four games to go. (23.04.18)

Barcelona only need one point to tie up the league title after their nearest rivals Atlético Madrid could only draw 0-0 at home to Betis on Sunday! With one eye on Thursday’s Europa League semi-final against Arsenal, Simeone rested several of his key players, and although Saúl and Tello both hit the woodwork and Fernando Torres had a shot headed off the line, neither side managed to find the net. The point keeps Betis firmly in fifth spot however, and with Sevilla and Villarreal not playing in the league this weekend, their position was further strengthened by Girona’s 0-2 defeat against regional rivals Espanyol earlier in the day. B team coach David Gallego was in charge for the Barcelona based side after Quique Sánchez Flores was sacked midweek, and he got off to the best possible start thanks to strikes by Gerard Moreno either side of the break. Real Sociedad’s chances of a return to Europe pretty much ended after they lost 2-0 at the already relegated Málaga, Adrián González and En-Nesyri getting the goals in the first half to give the Andalusians only their second win in 2018, and Las Palmas will be joining Málaga in the second division next season after they were hammered 0-4 by Alavés, Munir scoring twice after the restart and Medrán and Sobrino heading two more to send the Canary Islanders down. (22.04.18)

With the cup final taking place later in the evening, there were only two league games on Saturday. Valencia picked up another point in their push for a Champions League spot after a 1-1 draw at Celta, and they are now eleven points clear of fifth placed Betis pending their game tomorrow. Santi Mina put them ahead against his old club shortly after the restart, but Maxi Gómez headed the equaliser soon afterwards to keep his team in the hunt for the European spots. They are now three points behind Getafe however after the Madrid based side beat Eibar 0-1 earlier in the day, Mathías Olivera heading the only goal midway through the first half to take the Madrid based side level on points with Sevilla. One game on Friday as well, Deportivo dropping further away from safety after they could only draw 0-0 at Leganés. With a six point gap to Levante (who play on Monday) and four difficult games to come, the Galicians are firm favourites to go down with Málaga and Las Palmas. (21.04.18)

Copa del Rey final

Sevilla 0 – Barcelona 5

Barcelona won the Spanish cup for the fourth year in a row and the thirtieth time in their history after they beat Sevilla 0-5 in this year’s final. Valverde’s side dominated from start to finish, Luis Suárez opening the scoring early on after Countinho played across a long ball from keeper Cillessen. Team captain Iniesta hit the bar before Jordi Alba set up Messi for the second, and Luis Suárez combined with Messi to score the third shortly before the break. A few minutes after the restart Iniesta (who was probably playing his last final for the club before leaving this summer) made it four after picking up a return pass from Messi before rounding David Soria to score from a tight angle, and Cillessen was hardly tested until he had to keep out half time substitute Sandro a few minutes later. With twenty minutes to go Coutinho got the ball in the net only for the referee to rule it out as he had already blown for a penalty for hands by Lenglet, but Coutinho was allowed to take the spot kick, which he converted to complete the scoring. It was the biggest cup final win since Real Madrid beat their own B side Castilla 38 years ago, and Iniesta left the field to a standing ovation from both sets of fans when he was substituted near the end. (21.04.18)

Friendly international

Spain 6 - Argentina 1

A brilliant display by Spain in their latest World Cup warm-up match, a 6-1 victory over Argentina confirming them as one of the hot favourites for this summer. With the injured Messi watching from the stands, the South Americans put up little resistance, and with twelve minutes gone Diego Costa opened the scoring with a brave lunge which left both him and keeper Romero injured. Soon afterwards Isco added a second with a low shot past Romero’s replacement Caballero after his Real Madrid team-mate Asensio set him up, and although Otamendi headed one back from a corner, Isco made it three shortly after the break following good work by half time substitute Iago Aspas. The Celta forward combined with Isco for Thiago to score the fourth, and then got on the scoresheet himself after collecting a long De Gea free kick. And just a minute after that Isco completed a hat-trick, once again after collecting a return pass from Aspas. Both have given Lopetegui something to think about when he decides on his final squad to take to Russia in just over two months’ time. (27.03.18)

Under 21 Euro qualifier

Spain 3 - Estonia 1

Spain’s under 21 side made it six wins out of six after a comfortable 3-1 victory over Estonia on Tuesday. With only nine minutes gone, Fabián gave the youngsters the lead after Toni Lato set him up, and Borja Mayoral followed up his hat-trick against Northern Ireland with two more either side of the break following assists by Carlos Soler and Dani Ceballos. Sinyavskiy did get one back after that, and debutant keeper Juan Soriano was tested a couple of times, but Ceballos could have added to the scoreline, and Albert Celades’ team ended the day six points clear of their nearest rivals with only four games to go.

Club World Cup final

Real Madrid 1 - Gremio 0

Real Madrid are Club World Champions for the second time in a row and the third time in their history after beating Gremio 1-0 in the final! Zidane’s side had several chances before Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a long free kick which found a gap in the defensive wall shortly after the break. Ronaldo had a second goal ruled out for the borderline offside of Benzema, Modric hit the post, and Grohe had to make several saves, particularly from Ronaldo and Bale later on, and Keylor Navas hardly had a save to make throughout the ninety minutes. It was a third title of the season for Zidane’s side after winning the European and Spanish Super Cups in summer. (16.12.17)

Semi-final: Al Jazira 1 - Real Madrid 2

World Cup qualifier

Israel 0 - Spain 1

Spain completed the formalities on Monday night, a 0-1 victory against Israel making it nine wins and a draw from their ten group games. Already sure of top spot after the match against Albania, Lopetegui used the occasion to give a run out to the rest of his squad, team captain Sergio Ramos the only one to repeat from that tie, and Busquets winning his 100th cap. The locals put out a defensive line-up though, and Harush only had to make a couple of saves from Ramos and Pedro before the break. Ex Mallorca striker Hemed went close at the other end either side of half time, but with a quarter of an hour to go Illarramendi volleyed in the only goal following Asensio’s corner to give his team the three points.

Summer transfers

Latest moves

The summer transfer window closed at midnight last night, with the usual flurry of late signings as clubs rushed to complete their squads. Barcelona though failed to tie up anyone else, their last two targets, Coutinho and Di María, turned down after their respective clubs asked for exorbitant prices. That meant the likes of André Gomes, Arda Turan, Rafinha and Deulofeu stay at the Nou Camp, and Vermaelen has also been given a shirt number after Munir, Douglas and Marlon all went out on loan.

Elsewhere Espanyol, Sevilla and Valencia were all active in the last couple of days, the Catalans bringing back old boys Didac Vilà, Sergi Darder and Sergio Sánchez, the Andalusians taking on Carole and Geiss, and the Chés agreeing loan terms for Guedes and Andreas Pereira right at the end. Las Palmas have replaced Boateng with Loic Rémy and Tannane, Deportivo won their battle to get Lucas Pérez back to the Riazor, and Alavés, Betis, Eibar, Girona, Leganés, and Levante all added to their squads on the last day. That’s it now until the start of January, although clubs can still sign players if they are out of work, or to cover long-term injuries, and of course there will always be managerial changes at any time. Keep an eye on our pages for all the latest news. (02.09.17)

Spanish Super Cup, second leg

Real Madrid 2 - Barcelona 0

Real Madrid continue to clock up the titles under Zinedine Zidane, a 2-0 victory over arch-rivals Barcelona giving them their first Spanish Super Cup in five years. Already 1-3 up from the first leg in the Nou Camp, Marco Asensio extended his side’s lead with an impressive shot from outside of the area in only the fourth minute. Lucas Vázquez rattled the upright before Benzema latched on to a Marcelo cross to make it two shortly before the break, and although Messi and Luis Suárez hit the woodwork after the restart, the game was already over.

Isco combined with Bale to make it two shortly after the restart, and Bale himself rattled the crossbar again a few minutes later. Lukaku got one back though after Keylor Navas could only push out a shot from Matic, and José Mourinho’s side could have levelled it had Navas not saved from Rashford later on. (08.08.17)
