We're on matchday 31 of 38 and things don't seem to have moved much as Real Madrid still rules the tournament, right? Well no, as some fell deeper, and others finally saw the light. 

How are the Spanish La Liga standings today?

Here are the positions in La Liga.

Real Madrid remains the virtual champion of the tournament, and cannot afford to lose a game, since its closest rival, Sevilla, where Jesus Manuel "Tecatito" Corona plays, is only 9 points behind, with only 7 days to go until the end of the tournament. 

Therefore, they must win their next matches at all costs, such as the one against Getafe today, to try to increase their lead over Sevilla and avoid any bitter surprises. 

For their part, the Nervionenses have already done their job and beat Granada 4-2, and are only waiting for the team coached by Carlo Ancelotti to stumble to try to take the lead of the tournament away from them.

And a little behind them, another pair of monsters: Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, tied on points and so far, are separated from the throne by 12 points in a mission that seems impossible.

Spanish La Liga highlights

This match day has provided surprises for the clubs that have already played their matches, some good and others that have confirmed the bad moment that certain squads are going through. 

On the side of the good surprises, Javier Aguirre finally won a home debut in La Liga! The "Vasco" managed to beat Diego Pablo "Cholo" Simeone with R. C. D. Mallorca connected in their performance and with a solitary goal by Vedat Muriqi on penalty, at the 68th minute of the match. 

In addition to Sevilla's 4-2 win over Granada, Betis defeated Cádiz by a score of 1-2 with Andrés Guardado on the field, with goals by Cristian Tello and Borja Iglesias

And although Iván Alejo scored in the 58th minute, he could do little to bring his team back into the match.

But now it's time for the big surprises and so far, the most important one: the bad moment Atlético de Madrid is going through was confirmed after losing the first leg in the UEFA Champions League, this new defeat was added. 

After losing to Manchester City 1-0 with a goal by Kevin de Bruyne, the Colchonero club lost again against Mallorca, so in the press conference after the match, the press asked "Cholo" if the defeat against City affected them at this moment.

Simeone responded to the question firmly: "It's easy to blame it on lack of concentration, but we couldn't break down their orderly and correct defense".

With all these changes, La Liga continues today and there will surely be more surprises in the overall standings.
