Although it is never over until the woman of substance vocalises, a win for Real Madrid on Sunday could see them move ten points clear in La Liga after Barcelona failed to win on their visit to Osasuna on Saturday evening.
Two strikes from Lekic put Osasuna 2-0 early in the first half and it remained that way until Alexis pulled one back for the visitors at the beginning of the second half. However, it took only five minutes for the home side to re-establish a two goal gushion, Raúl Garcia the scorer.
Tello, on as a substitute for Pedro, made it 3-2 and that’s the way it stayed.
Barcelona’s opponents in the Copa del Rey final, Athletic Bilbao, also failed to win, losing 2-1 to Real Betis. Castro and Nelson were the scorers for Betis, Javí Matinez for Bilbao.
