Real climb to second with a 3-2 win over Racing

Written by: Staff

MADRID, May 4 (Reuters) Real Madrid today climbed above Valencia into second place in the Primera Liga with a 3-2 away win over relegation-threatened Racing Santander.

Roberto Carlos scored from the penalty spot after 33 minutes and Roberto Soldado and Robinho extended the lead after the break.

But Racing staged a stirring comeback with Sergio Matabuena scoring twice in the last 14 minutes as the visitors wobbled.

Real have 69 points with two games left to play, one ahead of third-placed Valencia, who lost 2-1 away to Real Mallorca yesterday.

Valencia's defeat allowed Barcelona to retain their Primera Liga title, as their 1-0 win at Celta Vigo saw them climb to 79 points with a game in hand.

Osasuna are fourth on 65 points after beating Atletico Madrid 1-0.

At the foot of the table, Racing stay 17th, one point above the relegation places.
