Real Madrid on Verge of La Liga Title While Chasing Champions League



May 2nd, 2024

With just four matches remaining in La Liga, Real Madrid has the opportunity to secure its 36th Spanish league title this coming Saturday. This dream scenario hinges on the results of two key games:

  • Real Madrid vs. Cadiz: A victory for Real Madrid coupled with a Barcelona stumble (a draw or loss) against Girona would see Los Blancos crowned champions.
  • Girona vs. Barcelona: Even a draw for Real Madrid against Cadiz would secure the title if Barcelona loses to Girona.

Real Madrid's commanding lead of 11 points over Barcelona, along with the favorable head-to-head record, positions them firmly in the driver's seat. Their dominance has been evident since February's pivotal win against then-challenger Girona and a convincing Clasico victory over Barcelona last month.

Focus Shifts to Champions League Semi-Final

With the La Liga title seemingly within reach, Real Madrid can now shift its focus to the highly anticipated Champions League semi-final clash against Bayern Munich. Following a thrilling 2-2 draw in Germany, thanks to Vinícius Júnior's impressive double, the stage is set for a nail-biting second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu next Wednesday. The winner will face either Paris Saint-Germain or Borussia Dortmund in the June 1st final.

Ancelotti's Stellar Squad

Under the guidance of manager Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid boasts a formidable squad with a near-perfect record in La Liga. Led by the likes of Jude Bellingham, Vinícius Júnior, and the ever-reliable Toni Kroos, the team has suffered just one defeat in a staggering 33 league games. Ancelotti is likely to rotate his lineup against relegation-threatened Cadiz, giving key players a well-deserved rest before the crucial Champions League encounter.

While Real Madrid basks in the potential La Liga triumph, Barcelona faces a different reality. Coach Xavi Hernández has conceded that the season will likely end without a trophy, regardless of his decision to remain at the helm. The focus for Barcelona now shifts to securing second place and the coveted Champions League qualification spot in the upcoming Catalan derby against Girona.

Girona, the Season's Surprise Package

Girona, the surprise team of the season, currently sits just two points behind Barcelona and dreams of causing another upset. The Catalan club famously defeated Barcelona 4-2 away from home in December, with Artem Dovbyk leading the charge for the top scorer title with an impressive 19 goals – just two ahead of Jude Bellingham.


The Fight for the Last Champions League Spot

The battle for the final Champions League spot is also heating up. Atletico Madrid will be looking to solidify their fourth-place position when they travel to Mallorca, while Athletic Bilbao chases them six points behind, with a game in hand against Getafe on Friday.

This weekend promises to be a pivotal one in La Liga, with Real Madrid potentially celebrating a championship and the race for the remaining Champions League spots reaching a fever pitch.
