Barca regain top spot after Real victory
Barcelona regained its top position in the Spanish Primera Division after beating arch-rivals Real Madrid 1-nil at the Nou Camp.
Barca were on top until the last round when a draw meant that Real overtook them but with the win over Real Barca now has a two point advantage.
With both Sevilla and Valencia drawing their matches Barca has now increased its lead its on the two teams to four and five points respectively.
Sevilla drew its home match against Malaga and it had to come from behind to snatch that point in a 2-all draw.
Also Valencia were held one all at home by Mallorca to record its fourth draw at home.
On the other end of the table, Xerez lost 5-1 away to Getafe to remain bottom of the table.
With Barca winning at home this week and maintaining its 100% home record, I will take a look at the home ladder which compares teams only on the matches played at home.
After the next round I will take a look at the La Liga away ladder
So here is the home ladder so far this season:
|Deportivo La Coruña||6||4||1||1||8||5||3||13|
So Real Santander is the only team without a home win so far this season.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Mallorca, Sevilla, Sporting Gijon and Valencia are still to lose at home but Valencia has just had two wins at home and hence its lower down on this ladder.
