Madrid Regain Top Spot From Barcelona

By  |  0 Comments

Real Madrid moved back above Barcelona to the top of La Liga by winning at Osasuna in a match overshadowed by an awful injury to Tano Bonnin.

The bottom club’s full-back broke his leg in a first-half challenge by Isco.

Cristiano Ronaldo slotted a shot under goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu to put the visitors in front, but Sergio Leon ran clear to chip an equaliser.

Isco then darted on to a loose ball to steer a shot inside the far post, and Lucas Vazquez chipped in a late third.

A few minutes before Isco’s goal, Real wing-back Danilo was carried off with an ankle injury, having been caught by David Garcia, Tano’s replacement.

Real’s victory moved them a point ahead of Barcelona, with two games in hand, hours after Luis Enrique’s side had gone top by winning 6-0 at Alaves.
