LaLiga Matchday 17 Recap: Title race on life support

Matchday 17 in LaLiga featured an electric Sunday line-up and it didn't disappoint - unless you're from the Colchonero persuasion. Join hosts Ruairidh Barlow (@RuriBarlow) and Sam Leveridge (@samleveridge) as they wade through another chapter in Spain's best drama.

In the first half of the show, there's a deep dive on the Madrid derby with Scott Martin (@CoachScottCopy) - in which we conclude that there is not a lot of league left. Fortunately, it's still complete mayhem below los blancos. We hear from Paco Polit (@PacoPolitENG) as Valencia try to oust their owner before David Whitworth (@DCWh1tw0rth) tells us of a great party he went to at the Benito Villamarín on Sunday evening. Real Betis-Real Sociedad had a very European feel to it.

The second half of the show sees the hosts deal with goal-shy Athletic, win-averse Levante and a tantalising match at El Sadar. Our MVP picks follow, with a controversial inclusion - opinions welcome via our Twitter page (@LaLigaLowdown). Finally, the show is closed out with our moments of the week featuring a sound not to be missed.
