Cesc Fabregas: On target for Barcelona

Cesc Fabregas: On target for Barcelona

Cesc Fabregas' 84th-minute strike earned a below-par Barcelona a narrow victory over Levante at the Camp Nou as they remained 13-points clear at the summit.

David Villa had seen a 16th-minute penalty saved by Keylor Navas, and that looked like it would prove a costly miss as Barca - perhaps with one eye on Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich - struggled to break down a spirited Levante defence, before Fabregas' late breakthrough.

The win means Tito Vilanova's side, 13 points clear of second-placed Madrid, could win the title next weekend, despite Real's 3-1 win over Real Betis earlier in the evening.

Mesut Ozil scored twice to ensure Real Madrid will go into their Champions League semi-final clash with Borussia Dortmund on the back of a Primera Division win.

Germany international Ozil broke the deadlock against Real Betis on the stroke of half-time and then wrapped up the scoring with his second right at the end.

In between those two strikes, Karim Benzema had put Madrid 2-0 up before Betis pulled a goal back through Jorge Molina's 73rd-minute penalty.

Granada are a point clear of the relegation zone after coming from behind to draw at home with Real Valladolid.

Patrick Ebert gave the visitors a surprise lead in the second half with a gloriously struck free-kick but Youssef El-Arabi levelled with 18 minutes remaining.

The hosts were the better side throughout the 90 minutes and pushed for a late winner but were unable to beat the outstanding Valladolid goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
