LaLiga table: Barcelona Now One Point Behind Leaders Atletico
Barcelona are now only one point behind LaLiga leaders, Atletico Madrid.
This is following their 1-0 victory over Real Valladolid on Monday, thanks to Ousmane Dembele’s late winner.
The Catalans struggled to create many chances in the first half, but were denied before the interval, when Valladolid keeper Jordi Masip steered a well-hit Pedri shot off the post.
The game changed complexion, when Valladolid’s Oscar Plano was shown a straight red with 10 minutes left.
With a few minutes left, Dembele volleyed past Plano.
Barcelona now have 65 points from 29 games, one behind Atleti with nine games left to play in the season.
Real Madrid, who are in third place in La Liga on 63 points, host Barcelona in another edition of the Clasico on April 10 in a crunch match for both team’s title hopes.
