Barca set a deadline for the title
After yesterday Atletico Madrid broke against Girona and almost certainly dropped out of the battle for gold, the Barcelona camp is already confident that the title in Spain is sure. The Catalans have 8 points in advance to Sofia players, and they have a less game match. Real Madrid’s first-to-none is 19 points. In this regard, according to Camp Nou’s Sport magazine, their final success in La Liga is guaranteed to be 70%.
Los Angeles has already had a plan for the remaining part of the championship and the goal is to secure the title in practice as quickly as possible. In this regard, Ernesto Valverde’s team has set a goal to end everything up to the 31st round – that is, until mid-April.
The other option was for the team to play the championship without any unnecessary defeat, because even if it registers weak results, the award can hardly escape. Lionel Messi and his teammates, however, are determined to make every effort in the next 12 matches in the Primera Liga.
If their plan is realized then they will have a month in which they will only think about the final rounds in the Champions League and the Spanish Cup. So the main players will be able to rest in the matches of La Liga, which will be good for them and because they are then expected to participate in the World Cup.
The next 12 Matches of the Championship:
Las Palmas (d)
Atletico M (e)
Athletic B (e)
