Struggling Almeria stun title-chasing Barcelona in La Liga
Real Madrid's own title hopes looked to have suffered a blow after they played out a 1-1 draw at home to 10-man rivals Atletico Madrid on Saturday. However, Barca, knocked out of Europe by Manchester United on Thursday, fell behind against Almeria to a first-half goal from El Bilal Toure and could not find a way back as they suffered only their second league defeat of the season. Despite the loss though, the Catalan giants remain seven points clear of Real at the top of the table. Earlier on Sunday, Athletic Bilbao's European qualification hopes were dented by a 3-2 home defeat to Girona. Gabri Veiga scored twice as Celta Vigo moved further clear of the relegation zone with a 3-0 win over Real Valladolid, who ended the match with 10 men at Estadio de Balaidos.
