The leadership of the classification of LaLiga has turned red hot after the conclusion of matchday 27 of the championship. FC Barcelona and Real Madrid believe in the title again several months after the Atlético de Madrid monopolize the head of the table, with an advantage that came to be ten points over the two greats of the country.
However, after a first hectic lap by Simeone’s, the balloon has begun to deflate and the sharks have begun to smell the blood, closing the distances to get very close to the leaders, to four and six points, respectively, with the three teams already with the same games.
These last days have confirmed the trends of the three sets. The Atlético de Madrid has shown itself with reliability problems and in front of goal, tying their last two games, against Real Madrid and Getafe. Those of Zidane, meanwhile, more decisive than attractive, but managing to save the matches based on wanting. And finally the FC Barcelona, who in recent weeks have found the key to their game and that has put cruising speed towards the title.
However, the only one who still depends on himself in the absence of eleven days is the leader, who can also take advantage of the second Clásico that remains this season. These are the matches that remain to all three teams.
Those of the Metropolitan, leaders with 63 points, they have to face Alavés, Sevilla, Betis, Huesca, Athletic, Eibar, Elche, FCBarcelona, Real Sociedad, Osasuna and Valladolid. The duels against sevillistas, txuri urdin, and of course, blaugranas, the teams that seem to reach the final stretch of the season with a better level will validate if Simeone’s team have what it takes to be champions.
The culé team has, a priori, the most complicated calendar of the three. They still have to play against Real Sociedad, Valladolid, Real Madrid, Getafe, Villarreal, Granada, Valencia, Atlético, Levante, Celta and Eibar. Four points below the rojiblancos, in addition to the two clashes against their direct rivals, threaten several teams against which the Catalans usually have a bad time, such as the donostiarras, the chés and the celestial.
Those of Zidane have to cut a distance of six points, since they have the particular goal average won against the leader. They have yet to play against Celta, Eibar, FC Barcelona, Cádiz, Betis, Getafe, Osasuna, Sevilla, Granada, Athletic and Villarreal, highlighting, in addition to the Classic, the duels against Hispanics and lions, without disdaining a Cádiz that already beat them in the first leg and against which Barça has not been able this season.
