Sergio Ramos edges Real Madrid closer to La Liga title


Real Madrid have drawn nearer to making sure about the La Liga title as a Sergio Ramos penalty gave them a 1-0 win away to Athletic Bilbao for a seventh successive triumph.

The hard-battled win agreed with Zinedine Zidane’s position on to 77 points after 34 games, seven away from second-set Barca who visit in-form Villarreal later on Sunday.

Athletic’s San Mames is one of the hardest away trips in Spain and Real confronted another overwhelming match even with no fans in the arena, as the Basques consistently shut them down and exposed them to their typical aeronautical siege.

However similarly as in Real’s last match against Getafe, the advancement originated from the punishment spot, and Ramos by and by demonstrated nerves of steel by terminating into the base corner in the 73rd moment to score a fifth goal in seven matches.

Zidane said it was unjustifiable that his side were continually being blamed for profiting by great refereeing after the definitive penalty seperated the sides at the San Mames.

While penalty choices went Real Madrid’s way in late triumphs over Valencia and Real Sociedad, Zidane excused the recommendation that the title was being chosen negligible calls.

“It’s easy to … talk about controversies but that’s not the case, we are doing phenomenally well. We are giving everything on the pitch and we deserve everything we are achieving,” Zidane told a virtual news conference.

“I don’t like to get involved in these discussions but what I cannot accept is hearing that we are top of the table because of referees’ decisions.

“We deserve more respect for what we are doing and I’m tired of people saying we are winning because of referees.”
