Barcelona is close to winning the La Liga title, after winning the El Clasico match against its arch-rivals Real Madrid 2-1 on Sunday evening in the twenty-sixth round of the competition.
The first half ended with a 1-1 draw, as Real Madrid advanced with a goal scored by Ronaldo Araujo, Barcelona player, by mistake in his team’s goal in the ninth minute, before Barcelona equalized with a goal scored by Sergi Roberto in the last minute of the original time of the first half.
In the second half, Frank Casey scored Barcelona’s second goal in the second minute of stoppage time for the match, noting that Real Madrid made a modest match most of the game, and lost to Barcelona for the third time in a row.
With only 12 matches remaining at the end of the league, Barcelona raised its score to 68 points at the top of the standings, 12 points ahead of Real Madrid, the second-place finisher whose score stopped at 56 points.
The two teams will meet next April 5 again in the second leg of the semi-finals of the King’s Cup of Spain, noting that Barcelona won the first leg with a clean goal.
