After an enthralling El Clasico that saw Barcelona beat title favourites Real Madrid 4-3 at the Santiago Bernabeu, The Catalan giants now find themselves with it all to play for – just one point behind both Madrid sides with nine games to go.
The Spaniards have been very poor away from home recently, but put in an attacking performance that Real Madrid couldn’t contend with. Forward Lionel Messi grabbed back-to-back hat tricks, and Barcelona gave the biggest indication that they can retain their league crown despite having an indifferent season – with four defeats already.
Their run-in should be straight-forward this season, but they will face the trickiest of final games – with Atletico Madrid the visitors in the final day of the campaign, where the league title could still be up for grabs.
888 Sport are giving odds of 7/4 for Gerardo Martino’s men to seal the title, which would be their second in as many seasons, and their fifth in the last six seasons. But Barcelona haven’t been as invincible as they were last campaign, and with the challenge of two Madrid sides to contend the title with, emerging top will be difficult.
