Sevilla and then Barcelona have fallen by the wayside as we wait until the final day. As the LaLiga Santander title race goes to the wire, four becomes two. Results continue to surprise in the race for the LaLiga Santander title.
After we witnessed Champions League semi-finalists Real Madrid failing to score at home to Betis and apparent runaway leaders Atlético Madrid falling to Athletic Bilbao, there were four teams vying for the top spot.
Those sides then all met on the same weekend – Barça-Atleti and Madrid-Sevilla – and their share of the spoils didn’t alter that view. Then to the midweek games…
Ronald Koeman’s side was first up next, away to Levante, and after taking a 0-2 lead, capitulated to a 3-3 draw. Then it was Atletico, who triumphed 2-1 over Real Sociedad on Wednesday edging them closer to the title, while Sevilla remained in the conversation with a 1-0 win over Valencia.
And on Thursday, Los Blancos did their job, coming away with a convincing 1-4 victory in Granada.
The penultimate games of the season could have seen the title handed to Atlético but, despite plenty of excitement and nerves, the title will go to the final day, although we know that only the Madrid sides are now in contention.
Sevilla lost 4-0 to Villarreal; Barcelona went down 1-2 to Celta; Real Madrid won by a goal to nil in Bilbao and Athletico Madrid won 2-1 against Osasuna on Sunday.
Atlético or Real Madrid on LaLiga’s final day?
Atlético remains top of the table but are just two points above their rivals as they go to former Madrid legend Ronaldo’s Valladolid, who needs a win to have any chance of league survival.
Zidane and his team need all three points against Villarreal but could be an advantage to them as their opponents face Manchester United in Europa League Final three days later.
Let’s have a look at how the final three games of the season have been for each of the contenders…
Real Madrid final three LaLiga fixtures
Granada (A) 1-4 win
Athletic Club (A) 0-1 win
Barcelona final three LaLiga fixtures
