Yesterday was a crucial day for all teams across Spain as played the decisive Matchday 33 except Barcelona who played their 32nd match against Villarreal and have won it. Whereas Real Madrid has been held at home to Betis and Atlético Madrid going down 2-1 in Bilbao.
This is the best opportunity to lead the LaLiga table for the first time this season for Barcelona if they win against Granada at home on Thursday.
No one could have imagined this back in December when everyone thought FC Barcelona cannot win the league title but 2021 has been a game-changing year for Koeman’s team, scoring 46 points in their last 17 games.
As you see the LaLiga table, this season has been the most thrilling season ever where the top four teams are separacted by a point or so. Now, if FC Barcelona win against Granada and they should with their destructive form, will put them at 74 points over Athletico Madrid, who once was the favourite to win the title race.
Barça have won 20 out of 21 games since December whereas Atlético have led since Week 9, but they were once runaway leaders, their incredible run of 15 wins in 16 games came to an abrupt end in February. They have won just six in the last 14 games means that their huge lead has been cut to nothing.
This puts both Barcelona and Real Madrid back into contention, with Sevilla also ramping up the table with successive wins, now with 70 points. Now Koeman and his men should have only one target – 6 finals, 6 wins, FC Barcelona wins LaLiga 20/21, but the most important game has to be the home game against Atlético.
