ALL EYES ON THE BIGGEST EL CLASICO IN YEARS AS LA LIGA TITLE RACE IS TIGHT AND UNPREDICTABLE
Written by MAX FM on April 9, 2021
Atletico Madrid has seen their lead at the top of La Liga eaten away by Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Atletico’s loss away to Sevilla last weekend has blown the Spanish title race wide open. For the first time in more than three months, Barcelona depends on their own results to be crowned La Liga champions. Win their remaining nine league games and they will be finish top for the first time in two years.
Real Madrid is playing with belief and real momentum.
At the back end of January, they fell seven points behind Atletico – who had two games in hand – following a 2-1 home defeat to Levante. But in the past two months, Diego Simeone has seen his side’s advantage whittled down to just a solitary point to Barcelona in second.
Real are only two points further back in third, but with two teams above them still to play each other, Zinedine Zidane’s men will be confident of making up the ground in the final two months of the campaign.
