Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw sees their title hope slip away
Real Madrid drew 2-2 with Valencia on Sunday to all but gift Barcelona the league title. Barca only need to win one of their two next games to be crowned La Liga champions.
The ball didn’t bounce the way of Real Madrid in their game at Santiago Bernabéu today. Bale, Ronaldo, and Chicharito hit the woodwork and multiple shots on target including a header from Ramos were saved. Ronaldo even missed a direct penalty, but two goals came eventually to even the score. First up was Pepe who headed home and later a sensational bullet shot from Isco found the back of the net.
Valencia played well especially their keeper who saved a number of shots on target, but Real should have won today’s game, especially considering they had 61% possession. It seems however that fate was against them and Real are now four points shy of Barcelona. It would take a miracle for Los Blancos to win the title now.
