Real Madrid’s slim title hopes took a huge blow as they were beaten at home by Girona. Real’s loss at the Bernabeu allowed cross town rivals Atleti to leapfrog them into second following the latter’s 1-0 win away at Rayo Vallecano.
Charles’ double for Eibar that saw Los Armeros come from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with high flying Getafe earns him a spot in the Team of the Week. It also does so for Mikel Oyarzabal, with Sociedad riding on the back of a brace from the 21 year old to beat Leganes 3-0. Los Txuri Urdin are in some form this year, and are yet to be beaten in 2019.
La Liga Team of the Week: Oblak (Atletico Madrid), Maripan (Alaves), Pique (Barcelona), Sala (Sociedad), Pedraza (Villarreal), Rochina (Levante), Maripan (Levante), Douglas Luiz (Girona), Portu (Girona), Charles (Eibar), Oyarzabal (Sociedad)
Not surprisingly, there’s no Real player following that loss to Girona. Portu, who scored the winner for them at the Bernabeu, is in it, as is his club mate Douglas Luiz.
