Athletico Madrid blew away the chance to close the gap on leaders Barcelona at the top of the La Liga to five points after a 2-1 defeat at Sporting Gijon on Saturday.
Antoine Griezmann’s stunning first-half free-kick looked like Athletico were cruising to victory, but goals from Antonio Sanabria and Carlos Castro ensured the defeat of Athletico Madrid. The surprise result temporarily lifted Gijon out of the bottom three.
Barca dropped points at the El Madrigal on Sunday against a very compact and technically disciplined Villarreal side as they were held to a two all scoreline.
At the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid kept their title hopes alive as they beat Seville 4:0. The win puts Madrid three points behind Athletico and 10 points adrift leaders Barca.
