Barcelona regains the lead in La Liga


Barcelona owes its victory to friendly fire when the former defenseman of traditional rivals Real Madrid, who returned to the ranks of the Andalusian club, veteran Sergio Ramos, accidentally scored against his team in the 76th minute.

The Catalan club returned to winning ways after stumbling against its host Real Mallorca 2-2 last Tuesday, achieving its sixth victory this season, raising its score to 20 points and regaining the lead temporarily by one point in front of the previous leader, its neighbor Girona, which hosts Real Madrid on Saturday at the top of the stage.

Barcelona prepared well for its difficult trip to Portugal to face Porto next Wednesday in the second round of the group stage of the Champions League competition.

On the other hand, Sevilla returned to the losing streak after two wins and a draw, suffering its fourth loss this season and its score frozen at seven points in twelfth place.

Sevilla, which was without Moroccan international striker Youssef En-Nesyri due to injury, suffered a painful loss before its trip to the Netherlands to face PSV Eindhoven next Tuesday in the second round of the group stage of the prestigious continental competition.
