LaLiga’s title race is still unpredictable

Who can still win it? Atlético de Madrid, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla 

Who’s in pole situationAtlético de Madrid 

What are the biggest fixtures this week? Levante vs Barcelona (May 11th), Atlético de Madrid vs Real Sociedad (May 12th), Granada vs Real Madrid (May 13th) and Athletic Club vs Real Madrid (May 16th

The LaLiga Santander title race is without doubt the most competitive in Europe, with four teams still in with a shot of winning the championship with just three rounds remaining. Sevilla’s chances are very slight at this stage, as they’re currently on 71 points, while Real Madrid and Barcelona both have 75 points behind Atlético de Madrid with 77 points.  

Atleti know that if they win their next three fixtures then they are guaranteed the title no matter what happens elsewhere, but arguably the toughest of their last few games is their next one, their Matchday 36 clash with Real Sociedad. Atleti will be at home for that match, but Copa del Rey winners La Real are not to be underestimated.  

The scheduling of the midweek round means that there is one fixture with title race implications at 10pm CEST for three nights in a row across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: Levante vs Barcelona on Tuesday, Atlético Madrid vs Real Sociedad on Wednesday and Granada vs Real Madrid on Thursday.  

Come the weekend, Atlético Madrid host Osasuna – who are now mathematically safe – and Barcelona host an in-form RC Celta. Real Madrid, meanwhile, face a very difficult away day in Bilbao to face Athletic Club.
