What a final of the season we are living! After el Clasico, the big match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, where are the current leaders of the classification don't allow for any minimum margin of error.
It was a game where didn't admit to blink, first Casemiro opened the scoring in a dead-ball, FC Barcelona on the other hand responded with the 1-1 scored by Leo Messi, who was going to be clear protagonist, of el Clasico. In the second half with a perfect shot from Rakitic, they took the lead (1-2) until James appeared in the field from the bench, to provide the momentary tie (2-2). We all thought that the game would end like this, until Leo Messi appeared, after a devastating counterattack, finished beating Keylor Navas to put the final 2-3 in the 92nd minute. To date, both teams have 75 points in the top of the table to only 5 remaining games for Blaugrana and 6 games for merengues in total, as it has pending postponed match against the Celta.
Luis Enrique's players will receive at home Osasuna, Villareal and Eibar in the last game of La Liga and they will have to try to get the three points against Las Palmas (team with one of the best results at home) and against Espanyol they will give us a good Catalan derby as we are used to every year.
The fight of Zinedine Zidane boys is not a bed of roses as well, they have to move four times to rival stadiums, Deportivo, Granada, Malaga and postponed the Rosaleda against Celta, and receive unfriendly visit of Valencia and strong Sevilla team, who this year is proving to be with the best level in Spain. We cannot ignore the fact that Real Madrid still wants to win the Champions League and are in a semi-final two games to nothing less than another heavyweight like At. Madrid,the players like Ronaldo, Modric, Pepe and others will face physical and mental overexertion in this final stretch of the season, while FC Barcelona in turn can focus more on La Liga, do all the best and fight every minute at 100% to take the 3 points in every game.
For now no one would dare to choose a La Liga winner, Real Madrid will have to overcome the pressure of FC Barcelona in La Liga and at the same time they should beware in Champions League which makes them favorites in Europe, but it creates doubts if they will be able to survive in both competitions. Real Madrid takes full advantage of itself to decline the champion of La Liga. In the hypothetical case of finishing in a points tie winner will be decided by particular goal, which is in the hands of Barça after the 1-1 of the first round and the 2-3 in Chamartín.
This is football and we could not be living a morbid season finale between these two great world football titans.
There is no excuse to miss any of the individual battles that have left each set.
