Real Madrid footballers defeated Atletico 2-0 on Saturday in the city derby and moved up to third place in the Spanish La Liga table. Atletico suffered its first loss in the 13th league round and lost a winning streak that lasted seven matches. "Los Colchoneros" remain at the top of the table, but may be relegated from the leaderboard by Real Sociedad San Sebastian, which is one point behind and guests of Eibar on Sunday.
Real took the lead 13 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. The home side put themselves ahead 2 - 0 after 63 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Dani Carvajal, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. Atletica had a good opportunity to take the lead as Saul Niguez came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of Thibaut Courtois.
In the next match, the Valencia players drew 2: 2 with Athletic Bilbao. They have been waiting for the victory in the league since November 8, and in the incomplete table they are in 10th place, Bilbao is right behind them.
FC Sevilla takes three points from the Getafe field. The close victory 1: 0 was won by the Andalusian team thanks to Xabier Etxeit's own goal. Getafe stretched the string without a victory in the highest Spanish competition in seven matches, the last time he defeated Barcelona 1: 0 on October 17.
Huesca won her first victory of the season on the thirteenth attempt, when she dealt with Alaves 1-0 at home. In the table, she detached from the last place where Osasuna Pamplona dropped, but she has one match for good.
