Real Madrid once again distances itself in the lead. Their victory against Alavés and Sevilla’s draw against Espanyol leave the Whites with a six-point advantage over the Seville side. Betis, after beating Mallorca 2-1, remains in third position and Barcelona, who beat Valencia 1-4, in fourth. Fifth place, with a ticket to the Europa League, is in possession of Atlético and Villarreal stays in sixth position, which leads to the Conference. In decline are Cádiz, Alavés and Levante.
Very intense day of VAR. Up to nine plays intervened. He was decisive in two games. In Cádiz-Getafe he caused the tie in favor of the azulones after warning of a hand from Negredo inside the area. In Betis-Mallorca he helped the local victory also by another hand, that of Battaglia. In the game that broke out the most was Granada-Villarreal. He did it up to four times: he prevented Uzani from being sent off, solved an identity mistake, warned of a penalty against Torrente and conceded a goal to Moi Gómez. In Mestalla he entered twice for plays that were in principle factual that were solved by visiting the monitor: a previous goal against Soler was annulled for out of bounds and the decision not to award a penalty on Aubameyang was maintained as there was a previous offside. In San Mamés, Silva was warned of a hand inside the area, but Muniain would miss the maximum penalty.
