Málaga up to ninth in La Liga

Málaga will look back on this season and think what might have been as they continue their good run with a 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao and climb to ninth in La Liga. Only a few weeks ago they were languishing in the relegation zone, bottom of the pile at one stage.

Recio gave the Blue and Whites the lead shortly before half time but a penalty from López in the 56th minute made it all square again and that’s how it ended.

Two more goals from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Real Madrid to a 1-3 win against Villarreal, Marcelo starting the ball rolling in the 17th minute. Cani found the net for Villarreal but it was never going to be enough.

Meanwhile, Barcelona played out a 0-0 draw with Deportivo de la Coruña.
