Real Madrid are slowly failing in their quest to win the La liga as they failed to widen the gap at the top, losing to Atletic Club 1-0 to remain just 1 point ahead of Barcelona in the title race.
Atletico Bilbao started the half better than the visitors and pilled pressure on the Real Madrid back four, early in the game and in the 26th minute, Atletico took the lead through Aduriz who timed his run perfectly to meet Rico’s cross and direct the ball into the net to give his side the lead. Atletico Bilbao continued to dominate the game until the break. Real Madrid came out to attack in the second half and attack, they did. Real Madrid however were unable to break down a dogged Atletico defense and eventually succumbed to defeat.
Barcelona can go ahead of Real Madrid in the La Liga if they beat Rayo Vallencano tomorrow.
