Real Madrid and Atleti end scoreless; Barca cruise to extend La Liga lead

Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid shared a rare goalless draw in the first derby at the Wanda Metropolitano in a result that will have delighted league leaders Barcelona.

The last time a La Liga clash between the two capital clubs finished 0-0 was back in 2005, and since then only one of 39 meetings between the rivals in all competitions had failed to produce a goal - the 2014-15 Champions League quarterfinal first leg.

But defences ruled the roost at Atletico's impressive new 68,000-capacity home ground, which provided an electric atmosphere to a match that failed to spark.

Local bragging rights might have been shared between the two arch-rivals, but it will be Barca wearing the smiles tonight as they now boast a 10-point advantage over their two likeliest title challengers.

It may not quite be an unbridgeable gap, with only 12 games gone, but it is firmly advantage Barca.

On the outskirts of Madrid before the derby, Luis Suarez ended a goalless drought with strikes either side of half-time as Barcelona ran out 3-0 winners against Leganes.

Suarez, who was an injury doubt leading up to the match after sitting out Uruguay's friendlies last week, had been held without a goal in his last five games in all competitions, dating back to his late equaliser against Atletico Madrid on Oct. 14.

But he tapped home from close range in the 28th minute after Ivan Cuellar spilled a save from a cross right into the Uruguayan's path, and then volleyed in his second on the hour mark from a rebound following a Paco Alcacer shot.

Paulinho added a third for Ernesto Valverde's team before full-time, poking home from close range after the ball fell to him following a nice buildup in the area by Barca.

Barca now enjoy a seven-point lead over second-placed Valencia, who play Sunday.

Sevilla came from behind for a 2-1 home win over Celta Vigo that keeps them firmly in the battle for European places.

Maxi Gomez had headed the visitors in front after 13 minutes from a free kick, but the sides went in level as Luis Muriel replied for the hosts nine minutes before half-time.

Three minutes into the second half, Nolito headed home Pablo Sarabia's cross to seal the win.

Getafe striker Angel scored twice as his side returned to winning ways with an emphatic 4-1 win over struggling Alaves in the lunchtime kick-off.

The hosts had seen their recent run of good form brought to a halt last week when they surrendered an early two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw at Real Betis.

But they made no mistake against Alaves, who remain inside the relegation zone after suffering a 10th defeat in 12 games this season.

Markel Bergara and a Jorge Molina penalty gave Getafe another two-goal cushion inside the opening 10 minutes and this time is was not one they looked likely to lose.

Angel's brace in the opening 20 minutes of the second half made certain of victory for the home side before Alaves achieved some degree of consolation with a late effort from Christian Santos.
