The Premier League title hopes of Liverpool will likely have to wait for a bit longer. Coming into Sunday’s match with inner-city rivals Everton, they needed two wins in a row to clinch their first trophy for 30 years. They will be waiting following a thoroughly dreadful 0-0 draw away to their rivals. Not much happened, other than them dominating possession, meaning they will be pushing back the celebrations for now.
In Spain, Real Madrid took advantage of Barcelona’s draw on Friday to officially go top of La Liga’s standings. A 1-2 win over Real Sociedad came courtesy of a 50th minute Sergio Ramos penalty and a 70th minute goal from Karim Benzema. Sociedad made it interesting with seven minutes to go, with Mikel Merino scoring, but Madrid held on and now sit on top of the table via goal difference over their Catalan rivals. Eight wins out of eight will see them crowned champions once more.
