LaLiga: Real Madrid Close In On Title As Barcelona Suffer Shock Defeat Against Rayo Vallecano

Real Madrid are now on the verge of being confirmed LaLiga champions, following Barcelona’s shock 1-0 defeat at home to Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

The result means Xavi Hernandez’s men have lost three consecutive home games in the same season for the first time in their history.

Alvaro Garcia struck the only goal of the match in the seventh minute.

Barca hit the woodwork twice, but failed to find a goal.

Rayo, who sit in 11th place, have now completed the league double over the Catalans for the first time, following their 1-0 home win in October.

Real Madrid can clinch the league title on Saturday, with either a draw or win at home to Espanyol.

Barcelona remain second in the table, level on points with Sevilla and two points clear of Atletico Madrid.
