The math is simple for Real Madrid as 1 point will clinch the league title. However, if they lose and Barcelona wins then Barcelona will hoist the trophy.
Real Madrid needs some outside help if they hope to leapfrog over Spanish La Liga leaders Barcelona and win the title on the final weekend of the season. Real pays a visit to Deportivo de la Coruna on Saturday, May 14th and the league will be decided then as Barcelona visits 16th-place Granada the same day. Real trails Barcelona by one point and can capture the league championship if they win and Barcelona draws or loses. If Barcelona should lose and Real draws then Barcelona will clinch the title unless they lose by six goals or more, which is highly unlikely. It’s a must-win game for Real at the Estadio Municipal de Riazor no matter what Barcelona does in Granada.
With the Spanish league just kicking off now’s a good time to take a look at some of the most-interesting teams.
