The 2019/2020 La Liga season has been filled with a lot of bitter-sweet moments. One could argue that the inconsistency of the top teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have been the reason this particular season has been a lot tighter and unpredictable than those of the past.
The big men of La Liga, Real Madrid and Barcelona, have dropped a combined 54 points so far this season with at least five games each to play, and the goal difference is as mediocre as it gets.
We see times without numbers, this season most especially when the smaller teams take points from the bigger ones in ways betway88 users couldn’t predict but this seems to have favoured Real Madrid more this season as they comfortably sit at the summit of the Liga table.
After months without football, La Liga finally resumed with both Barcelona and Real Madrid getting comfortable wins against Mallorca and Eibar respectively in their return.
Both teams continued in their good form winning their next fixture, but Barcelona stumbled a game later after playing out a 0-0 draw.
Since then, the Catalans drew their next two games, dropping two points each against Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid. This meant Quique Setien’s men relinquished their bragging rights as leaders allowing Real Madrid to topple them for the umpteenth time this season.
Zinedine Zidane’s men look set to increase the lead on their rivals, even more, when they take on neighbours Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday as a win will give them a four-point lead over Barça.
With just five games left to play, as betway88 will agree, it is looking likelier that Real Madrid will end up being crowned champions of this season as it seems very far from likely that Zidane’s men will drop more than four points going into their final five fixtures.
If they get the win against Getafe, a fixture they’ve found difficult to navigate in recent years, Real Madrid can afford to draw two of their remaining fixtures, and still be crowned champions given their superior head to head record against Barcelona.
And that’s if Barcelona go on to win all five games, something that is hard to bet on as the Catalan club have looked really unconvincing in their recent fixtures.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, look to be more interested in winning the title with their players giving more and their team spirit a little higher than their rival’s.
Los Blancos have succeeded in Europe recently quite well, but they have really struggled in Domestic competitions.
Winning just two La Liga titles in 11 seasons, Real Madrid look set to bounce back from a terrible season in 2018/2019 to lift their 34th Liga title.
The team is back to its best for the first time since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club and they are thriving in the competition under the guidance and leadership of an inspired Karim Benzema who’s in the form of his life.
The Frenchman has netted 17 times in the league this season, five less than top scorer Lionel Messi. He’s also racked up seven assists to his name and is always behind every Real Madrid goal since the resumption of the league season. He’s definitely a contender for this season’s player of the year.
Like we all know already, anything can happen in football, Real Madrid can go on to play a draw and lose a game, handing Barcelona the title but it’s a fact that the chances of that happening is really slim.
It’s likely that Barcelona will drop points in at least one of their remaining five games as they have some really tricky fixtures including Villarreal away from home.
All the same, the last lap of the league season will be exciting to watch, and the neutrals will be the winner in the end as they will enjoy the show no matter the outcome.
