1 min read

In a nail-biting LaLiga encounter, Barcelona clinched a crucial victory against Celta Vigo to keep their title hopes alive, thanks to a late penalty from star striker Robert Lewandowski.

The match saw Lewandowski seizing the moment with an impeccable strike just before halftime, setting the stage for Barcelona’s dominance. However, Celta Vigo fought back fiercely, with Iago Aspas leveling the score with a deflected goal shortly after the break, putting the visitors under immense pressure.

The tension reached its peak when Lewandowski stepped up to take a penalty in the dying moments of the game. Despite an initial save by Celta Vigo’s goalkeeper Vicente Guaita, the referee ordered a retake due to encroachment, giving Lewandowski a second chance which he capitalized on, securing a dramatic win for Barcelona.

With this vital victory, Barcelona remains in contention for the LaLiga title, trailing behind Girona by just two points and arch-rivals Real Madrid by seven, albeit having played one more game than both teams.

Meanwhile, at the Metropolitano Stadium, Atletico Madrid displayed sheer dominance as they thrashed Las Palmas 5-0. Goals from Marcos Llorente and Angel Correa, coupled with a brace from Memphis Depay, ensured a commanding victory for Atletico Madrid.

In other fixtures, Osasuna secured a 2-0 win over Cadiz, while Sevilla settled for a goalless draw against Valencia at the Mestalla, showcasing the unpredictability and excitement that LaLiga has to offer.
