2019/20 LaLiga Sunday Roundup - Matchday 9 | LaLiga Scores
Things are really starting to heat up in La Liga as only three points separate the top six sides. This is generally the time that the top teams start to pull away from the rest of the pack, but with almost no team showing consistency at this point, it's anyone's guess as to who rises in the ranks.
Sevilla 1-0 Levante
Luuk de Jong 86'
In a game that saw both sides throw absolutely everything they had at each other, Sevilla were fortunate to come out on top thanks to a late goal by their Dutch forward Luuk de Jong. It's a significant win that keeps them within touching distance of the top of the table.
Athletic Bilbao 1-1 Real Valladolid
Inaki Williams 33'; Inigo Martinez 71' (OG)
