La Liga to be decided this weekend
May 11th, 2010 by Adam Davies
As in the Barclays Premier League, the title race in Spain has gone right down to the wire. The final weekend will decide the recipient of La Liga trophy, and it will go to one of the two biggest sides in the country: Real Madrid or Barcelona.
Barcelona are in pole position. They sit just one point in front of the Spanish capital side, and will play Valladolid at home. In addition, their home record is phenomenal. Barca have dropped league points in just one match all season – a 1-1 draw with Villarreal.
Real Madrid travel to lowly Malaga, and though they are strong favourites to win the match, the chances are that it will not be enough to claim the title. Unbelievably after scoring over one hundred goals and accumulating 95 points (potentially 98), they could still be denied the championship.
With both Valladolid and Malaga only above the relegation zone on goal difference, they will have ample motivation to try and pull a result out of the bag – and as yet could have a major say in the destination of the title.
