Matchday 32 of the League, schedules, match results and summary | Sports

Without truce and only one day after the end of the week-to-week matchday 31, date 32 of the Spanish League arrives. Barcelona maintains its 11-point advantage over Real Madrid after the defeat of both during the week, against Rayo and Girona respectively. The two colossi of Spanish football play on Saturday: the azulgranas receive a Betis that is risking their European options, while the whites receive an Almería that fights for salvation. On Sunday, Atlético de Madrid visits Valladolid. With seven days to go, the relegation zone is red hot. Valencia has caught air with two consecutive wins and Getafe, Espanyol and Elche start the date in relegation places. The franjiverdes could mathematically descend to the Second Division this same weekend.

These are the matches of the day:

Osasuna – Real Sociedad (Friday 28, 9:00 p.m. Dazn, GOAL)

Santander League working day 32Previous

Two teams with good dynamics open the day at El Sadar. Osasuna, which has two consecutive victories, faces Real Sociedad, which leads fifth place by five points and is the best placed to access the next edition of the Champions League. The people from San Sebastián are looking for a victory that will give them more advantage knowing that they have to face the top three in the remainder of the season. Arrasate, the Osasuna coach, faces his former team a week before playing the Cup final against Real Madrid.

Elche – Rayo Vallecano (Saturday 29, 4:15 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 32

The ordeal of Elche does not stop in this edition of the League and the franjiverde box has already chained six consecutive defeats (five of them without seeing the door). With only 13 points in 31 days and 18 from salvation, the descent could be mathematical this weekend. They are visited by Rayo who arrives with morale through the roof after beating Barça (2-1) and who with salvation in his pocket does not give up dreaming of Europe even though it is very difficult. Rayo’s attack is inspired: they have beaten the rival goal in the last six games. Although the Vallecanos have only won one of their five visits to teams that were in the bottom five of the table.

Real Madrid – Almería (Saturday 29, 6:30 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 32

Real Madrid receives Almería after falling giving a very bad image in Girona, although it remains 11 points behind Barça with 21 at stake after the culé puncture. Ancelotti’s team will play the two titles they aspire to this season starting next week: the Cup final against Osasuna and the Champions League semifinal against Manchester City. In the background is the League, where they receive a team that is fighting for salvation and that achieved its first victory of the season as a visitor in Getafe. Modric is out due to injury.

Barcelona – Betis (Saturday 29, 9:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 32

The League is getting long for a Barça that has the title within reach despite the bad image it has been showing in recent weeks. They face a Betis that is fighting to keep its place in the Europa League and at the same time pressure Real Sociedad for the Champions League. Xavi’s men have only won one of their last five games. The coach stressed his anger after the game in Vallecas and hopes that the team will return to the version that made them beat Atlético de Madrid by the minimum. Betis is not in a good moment either, with only four points from the last 15.

Cádiz – Valencia (Sunday 30, 2:00 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 32

Final for salvation, like all that Valencia has been playing for a few days. Cádiz has gotten into trouble with its latest results and marks salvation at the start of the day. One more point has Valencia that has taken air with two consecutive wins against Elche and Valladolid. Three defeats without seeing a door at home have set off alarm bells for the Andalusians, who had been very strong at home until a month ago. The Valencianistas have only managed one win against Cádiz in their last five meetings.

Villarreal – Celta (Sunday 30, 4:15 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 32

Villarreal repeats in their stadium against a Celta in no man’s land. Setién’s men came back against Espanyol and are chasing fourth place at Real Sociedad, although to achieve this they cannot fail in this type of match. The Galician team, with a better performance as a visitor than at home, comes from beating bottom club Elche in the final stretch, sealing salvation but with the European positions too far away. They hold on to Gabri Veiga’s aim: Celta have won in the last three games in which the youth squad player has scored.

Espanyol – Getafe (Sunday 30, 6:30 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 32Previous

Another critical duel pits two teams in decline and in serious trouble. Espanyol has accumulated eight games without winning (and seven defeats) that have sunk them in the standings. They have a final against Getafe, which leads the parakeets by three points but gave up a key defeat against a direct rival like Almería. After the dismissal last Thursday of Quique Sánchez Flores, it will be the sports director Rubén Reyes who sits on the azulón bench this Sunday. On the other side, Luis García has yet to win as a parakeet coach.

Valladolid – Atlético de Madrid (Sunday 30, 9:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 32

Atlético de Madrid visits Valladolid with Real Madrid’s second place between their eyebrows. Simeone’s men celebrated with a victory against Mallorca on the club’s 120th anniversary and visit a rival who is risking their permanence. Valladolid had taken a breath with a 7 of 9 score since Pezzolano’s arrival on the bench, but the defeat against Valencia in a game that began by winning brings them back to the fierce fight to avoid the red zone. Pucela hasn’t beaten the rojiblancos since the 2008/2009 season.

Mallorca – Athletic (Monday 1, 7:00 p.m. Dazn)

Athletic took a step back in their European aspirations with a defeat against Sevilla in the weekly matchday. Valverde’s team was unable to take advantage of Betis’ last two punctures and is still three points behind the Verdiblancos, who are in sixth place at the start of the day. For its part, Mallorca returns to Son Moix, where it is being a fairly solid team. Aguirre’s men have salvation in their pocket with 40 points with seven games to go.

Seville – Girona (Monday 1, 9:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Seville and Girona close the day on Monday. The Andalusians will try to prolong the team’s state of grace since the arrival of Mendilibar, who remains undefeated as a Sevilla coach. Sevilla has moved ten points above relegation, something that seemed unthinkable a few weeks ago. For its part, Girona is also saved and comes with morale through the roof after beating Barça. Taty Castellanos, who signed a poker against the Catalans, is being the greatest offensive benchmark for Míchel’s men in recent weeks.
