Check out our review of the 34th La Liga round, as we list the three things we learned from the latest action of top-flight Spanish football.

Matchday 34 in La Liga saw both title contenders Real Madrid and Barcelona earn vital three points on the road, beating Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal respectively.

The difference between the sides remained four points, with Madrid getting closer to their 34th crown as Spanish football champions.

Following in this article, are the three things we’ve learned from this weekend’s action of La Liga football.

Sergio Ramos is turning into a penalty-kick maesto

Sergio Ramos did it again for Real Madrid. His 73rd-minute penalty kick handed Real Madrid the victory at the San Mames Stadium over Athletic Bilbao.

The Spanish defender has now found the net in four of his last five outings in top-flight Spanish football.

He converted his 22nd penalty in a row, reaching double figures in the 2019-20 La Liga campaign.

Luis Suarez is getting back in top form

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez seems to be finally getting back in top form, after failing to score in the opening four games on the return of Spanish football.

He bagged a brace in the 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo and scored one in Barcelona’s 4-1 win at Villarreal last Sunday.

Suarez has recorded 14 goals and eight assists this term, which is his worst season in the Blaugrana shirt so far.

Atletico Madrid and Sevilla move closer to Champions League football

Gameweek 34 was perfect for Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, as they won their games against Mallorca and Eibar respectively, while all their rivals for a top-four finish dropped points.

The Colchoneros are now eight points ahead of fifth-placed Villarreal and will have the chance to book their place in the Champions League in the upcoming 35th round.

Sevilla is still sitting in fourth, but now with a comfortable advantage of six points above the Yellow Submarine.
