Another week passes and Real Madrid drop more points—this time 0-0 at Osasuna—as they do their best not to try and salvage any sort of title push.
Ahead of them, both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona recorded wins to increase their lead over Los Blancos. The former beat Zaragoza 2-0 at home and the latter recorded an impressive 3-1 win against Malaga at La Rosaleda.
Elsewhere, Betis continued to prove their European credentials, so too did Rayo, while at the bottom, Espanyol recorded an important win over Celta Vigo.
Amidst all that action there were some brilliant individual performances, as usual.
Apologies to Getafe and Granada, who play tomorrow (blame the LFP), but here is La Liga's team of the week...
