Barcelona blew the lead on two occasions to drop points against Levante. The cost of the two points dropped by Barcelona could be massive in the end. Of the three teams that were leading the charge in the Spanish La Liga title race, Barcelona was the one who had to make the least mistakes.
It was a narrow victory but Sevilla picked up the 3 points from a ‘1-0’ home win against Valencia.
Real Madrid gripped second-place harder after leaving with three points from a 4-1 victory against Granada.
Getafe, Alavés, Valladolid, Huesca, Elche, and Eibar.
A defeat against Celta Vigo left Getafe without progress.
A ‘2-0’ away win for Alaves pinned Eche in the relegation zone.
A ‘1-0’ win over Athletic Club boosted Huesca’s survival odds.
Bottom table Eibar picked up a point at home against Real Betis.
English PREMIER LEAGUE

Chelsea fell to fourth.
Liverpool has a game in hand and 4 points from Champions League qualification.
Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 21 goals

Manchester United losing at home to Leicester City made Manchester City the 2020/21 Premier League winners.
Manchester United played two-weekday games and lost both times. The first one-handed Manchester City the league title while allowing Leicester City’s grip on the Champions League qualification spot. The second one helped Liverpool get closer to their Champions League qualification. Both defeats came at home.
This is why we watch football matches. The league position and form won’t have predicted an Arsenal win at Stamford Bridge to do a double on Chelsea.
With two rounds of the Bundesliga season left, Hertha Berlin pulled three points away from the relegation playoff spot and 5 points from the relegation zone after coming from behind to get three points from their match against a relegated Schalke.
