EFE – A goal by Nacho Fernández gave the victory to Real Madrid in San Mamés against Athletic Club (0-1) and keeps alive the chances of the white team to reach the league title despite the victory of Atlético de Madrid against Osasuna (2-1) in the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Madrid center-back scored the only goal of the game in the 68th minute when he finished off a cross from the right wing of Casemiro at the far post, who seven minutes earlier had smashed a header off the crossbar of Unai Simón’s goal.
In the 88th minute, Athletic forward Raúl García was sent off with a red card.
With the scores of San Mamés and the Wanda Metropolitano, Atlético de Madrid continues to lead Real Madrid by two points, although the particular ‘average’ favors the white team.
