The final straight of Real Madrid, Seville and FC Barcelona

MADRID, 1 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –

With Real Madrid as the top favorite to win the LaLiga Santander title this season, Sevilla, nine points behind, and FC Barcelona, ​​12 points behind -with one game less-, are the top pursuers and the only candidates to snatch the trophy to the whites. The three teams have nine games ahead of them -10 games in the case of the Catalans- against rivals of different kinds and levels, in a calendar that will mark the path of the new champion of the competition. We review the calendar of each of them.

–Real Madrid. 1st with 66 points.

With a large cushion of points as their greatest advantage, the team led by Ancelotti faces a tough schedule in this last stretch, perhaps the most demanding of the three main contenders for the title, especially because they have the Champions League at the moment. The whites will have to visit the always difficult fields of Sánchez-Pizjuán, in a key duel that could be key for first place; The Sadar, where he has only won three of his last nine visits, and the Metropolitan, perhaps with the title already very close. The final will be at home against a Cádiz that could be fighting for salvation and at home against a Betis that could be in the fight for Europe.

The security and consistency that Real Madrid showed since their last defeat in the league against Getafe on January 2 was lost in the last game of the competition against Barça, which stormed the Bernabéu and watered Madrid’s doubts with a painful 0- Four. That deep pothole hopes that it will not influence the rest of the days, avoiding letting go and complicating a League that seems very well on track. In addition, in the middle will be the Champions League quarter-final tie against Chelsea.

–Seville. 2nd with 57 points.

Lopetegui’s team, after several seasons bordering on the chances of being a contender for the title, has confirmed its candidacy and reaches the final stretch with the possibility of fighting for what would be the second League in its history. With no European competition, having the League as their sole objective could be key in terms of rest and the ability to recover before each crucial game in this last stretch.

With a list of casualties that seems to never end, Sevilla has this weekend against Barça the first big stumbling block of the last nine games. A key duel for his aspirations in the championship, although he will also have to play at Pizjuán against Real Madrid and Athletic Club and visit the Wanda Metropolitano and La Cerámica, as tougher commitments. These last nine games will be the litmus test for a team that wants to show, finally, that it can win the League.

Seville – Athletic Club. Day 38. May 21-22.

–FC Barcelona. 3rd with 54 points.

Those of Xavi Hernández have it very complicated. They are 12 points behind with one game in hand, so they must expect three defeats for the Whites and not fail in their remaining 10 games, six of them at home. Sevilla, Celta and Villarreal will be the most difficult rivals, but all at the Camp Nou, while the most complex visits will be to Anoeta and Villamarín. Thus, its calendar is presented as the most affordable of the three main applicants, although it does not depend on itself.

The azulgranas have gone 12 games without losing, a good dynamic that has achieved, at least morally, that the team believes in its options. Xavi has managed to create a reliable block and little by little a change driven by Terrassa is being appreciated. The Catalan team is also involved in the Europa League, with the quarterfinals against Eintrach as their next objective.
