Out of the 5 prestigious leagues in Europe, La Liga’s title race is the most exciting one this season. La Liga has always been special, there’s always fierce competition among the Spanish giants in Spain. But as things are right now, this might be the best title race in La Liga witnessed over the years. We will tell you why!
La Liga title race; As it stands
Here’s the most amazing side of the picture, the Top 4 teams of La Liga are only differentiated by 6 points with 4 matches remaining till the end of the campaign. Atletico Madrid is a leader with 76 points and 34 matches played, while Barcelona and Real Madrid are chasing the league leaders, both with 74 points and 34 matches played. And at the number 4th, Sevilla still has a game in hand as they have 70 points with 33 matches played. That’s how narrow it is! You can view the league table here.
With only 4 matchdays left, this nail-biting competition is getting exciting day by day! Let’s analyze the situation of the TOP 4 teams.
Atletico Madrid has been league leaders throughout the campaign but their recent dip in form has seen Madrid and Barcelona close the points gap. Here’s how it gets tricky for Atletico, they have to face FC Barcelona next week, a match which will most probably be a title decider. If they win all the remaining 4 matches, they will be crowned Champions!
One thing which Real Madrid has illustrated this season is resilience, never write them off! Zinedine Zidane’s side is through a difficult and transitioning period but that’s not stopping them from winning titles. The defending champions are only 2 points behind the league leaders, which is not a difficult lead to chase. All the possibilities are open for Los Blancos with tricky ties ahead as they face Sevilla next week.
Like Real Madrid, the situation at Barca is not great like it used to be. Koeman’s side has shown impressive displays and consistency after a tragic start of the campaign but they slip up very often. However, they are tied with Real Madrid with 74 points to their name. Barca will face league leaders next week on matchday 35, if they manage to beat them, all the odds fall into their favor most probably!
Julien Lopetegui’s Sevilla has come a long way this season, as they are stressing the TOP 3 teams with a very narrow margin, they still have a game in hand which they will play tonight. Sevilla faces Real Madrid next Saturday, if they manage to beat them, it’s an open way for them to clinch that long-desired La Liga title.
Exciting weekend ahead:
The coming 8th of May is going to be the most decisive match day in La Liga. As all 4 discussed team will face each other. Barcelona will take on Atletico Madrid on Saturday afternoon, while Sevilla will be facing Real Madrid later that evening. It will be a title decider!
