Barcelona and Atlético also climb positions and they are already in third and fourth position after beating, respectively, Elche and Betis.

Cádiz, Alavés and Levante, are in decline, Matchday 27 closes this Monday with Athletic-Levante (9:00 p.m.).
The day has been marked by controversies. One of them was at the Martínez Valero, when the VAR warned of a hand from Barragán, who would end up transforming Memphis and would serve Barcelona to add the three points, and he did not do it by another hand of Alba. He entered the Bernabéu twice: once to cancel a goal against Benzema and another to award a penalty for Ancelotti’s men. The referee signaled a foul on Vinicius, outside the area, but his partner from the control room warned him that the action occurred inside. He also entered the Mestalla, the linesman annulled a penalty on Maxi Gómez for offside, but the VAR said that he was in a legal position. In Balaídos he entered twice: a goal by Denis was conceded badly canceled due to an offside in which the attacker did not interfere and did not touch the ball and, the other action, in a handball by Hugo Mallo.
