La Liga Title Race No Longer Wide Open
Real Madrid drew against Valencia before drawing at Real Valladolid, thus all but ruining their chances of winning the La Liga title this season. Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have the chance to completely cancel any chance for Los Galacticos if they win their league matches this weekend, and if they do, their match at the Camp Nou next week will be for the title.
Real Madrid will be facing Celta Vigo this weekend in a game that they absolutely have to win in order to cut the deficit between themselves and Atletico Madrid down to one, pending their result against Malaga in the nation’s capital.
Elsewhere, Barcelona will be visiting Elche, a team that can play possession and shows no fear when it comes to playing against the big boys of Spanish soccer. If they manage to grab a favorable result against them, the reigning champions’ chances of defending their crown will all but vanish.
These three teams have fought tooth and nail with one another and others all season long to be able seen as the best. Unfortunately, they have all managed to slip up when it counted the most domestically which means that they have to make up for it in these final two rounds of league action.
If they all win their games this weekend, Real Madrid can only finish in second, pending what happens between Barcelona and Atletico on the final day. Nothing will be easy as every team wants to win every game, but mental and physical strength along with true belief will lead the strongest team to the top.
