So, an evening full of drama comes to a close! Keep visiting www.sportskeeda.com for all the latest sporting updates! I'm signing off here, and see you all on what should be a thrilling final day of the season!
...
...
...
With just one point separating Real and Barcelona, the title will be decided on the final day of the season! Talk about tension!
...
The thrilling La Liga title race takes another twist as Real Madrid are now second in the table, 1 point behind Barcelona, who defeated Espanyol 5-0. Atletico fall down to third, after losing to Levante!
...
And that's it! Peep, peep, peep! Real hold onto their 3-2 lead to clinch all three points!
...
As it stands, Atletico are out of the title race, after going down to already relegated Levante! Real will move up to 2nd if they hold on with Barcelona cruising to a 5-0 win!
...
3 minutes added on as James helps clear the danger, leading a counter
...
90' - Valencia going all out with very less time left!
...
88 minutes gone, Real holding on to a 3-2 advantage over Valencia, with the visitors down to 10 men
...
...
So, apparently, and this is according to Valencia's official Twitter account, Rodrigo was sent off for dissent towards the referee!
...
So, anyone has any idea why Rodrigo was sent off? If you do, let me know as well!
...
BIZARRRE!! Valencia have Rodrigo shown a straight red! What was that for? All he did was run past James for the throw!
...
83' - Nervy last 7 minutes as Real struggle to hold onto the ball!
...
And just like that! GOAAAL! Gomes scores to make it 3-2! With just under 9 minutes to go, game on!
...
In all the chaos, Jese came on for Real!
...
80' - Another brilliant save from Casilla to deny Rodrigo, who had been put through after some good work down the right!
...
A standing ovation for Alvaro Arbeloa, who comes on to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, the two-goal hero!
...
...
No, there's another Cristiano Ronaldo stat we have for you! He has been that good this season
...
...
WHAT A MISS! Santi Mina does brilliantly on the left to befuddle Danilo. His first pull-back finds Paco, but his shot is blocked out. Mina gets the ball again, passes it to Gomes, who puts the ball over the bar!
...
74' - Real get a corner after Lucas saw his cross blocked out. Ramos gets his head onto the ball from the corner, but came to nothing as Valencia break
...
72' - Two good chances for Valencia, as Paco almost scores, denied by a smart save from Casilla. Following the corner, the ball is worked back out, and the shot from the right is saved by Casilla again, on the 2nd attempt!
...
71' - Valencia control the ball, looking to breakdown the Real defence, but the Los Blancos players are closing the spaces down quickly
...
69' - Javi Fuego goes into the book for a bad tackle on Lucas. Real work the free-kick back among themselves
...
65' - The game has broken down a little, with both teams trying to break at every given opportunity
...
Real have Arbeloa warming up, as they look to bring him on for his last appearance as a Madrid player at the Bernabeu
...
60' - Valencia almost pull one back as Paco Alcacer's shot goes just wide
...
58' - GOAAAAALLLL Ronaldo! A lovely pass from James finds the Portuguese forward, and he made no mistake, firing a left-footed shot past Alves!
...
57' - A lovely pass from James finds Vasquez, whose shot is saved well.
...
Real Madrid now lead Valencia 2-1
...
55' - ...and Rodrigo pummels the ball into the goal, with the goalkeeper stranded and out of position! GOAAALL!
...
54' - Gomes takes a snapshot from outside the box but it is saved well by Casilla! From the corner, the ball is worked back down the left, and a dangerous cross is cleared and finds its way to Rodrigo....
...
52' - Casemiro goes into the book for a bad tackle on Rodrigo, Parejo on the free-kick, which hits the crossbar!!
...
49' - Marcelo's run and cross into the box finds Vasquez, whose cross is headed goalward by Benzema, but Alves saves again!
...
Another substitution for Valencia as they brought on Santi Mina for Abdennour.
...
48' - Karim Benzema and Ronaldo press and force an error. Benzema runs into the box and passes it to Vasquez, whose shot is deflected away for a corner, which is worked back, and almost finds its way to Ronaldo!
...
Valencia have brought in Andre Gomes for Cancelo. Interestingly, Gomes was booked for dissent while seated on the bench, so if he gets another yellow, he's off!
