Real moves closer to Spain title with 7th straight win

Sergio Ramos scored his fifth goal since the season resumed as Real Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 yesterday to move closer to its first Spanish league title in three years.

Ramos converted a 73rd-minute penalty to give Real its seventh straight league victory and open a seven-point lead over second-place Barcelona, which was at fifth-place Villarreal later yesterday. Real has four matches left as it chases its first league title since 2017 Ramos had already scored the winner from the penalty spot in Real’s 1-0 win against Getafe on Thursday. He had scored in three other matches since the league resumed. Eighth-place Athletic was coming off two straight victories and had won three of its last four matches, with the only setback a loss at Barcelona. Two-time defending champion Barcelona had the lead when the league was suspended but has drawn three of its six matches since the return, including the last two. It will enter the match against Villarreal with coach Quique Setien under pressure because of the team’s poor run of results.
