Only 8 matches are left
After 30 rounds played, FC Barcelona are leading La Liga table with nine points ahead of Atlético Madrid and ten from Real Madrid. Only eight matches are to be played to finish the domestic championship and it is time to start calculating when Barça could be champion.
If Atlético Madrid and Barça do not lose any of the upcoming games, the team of Luis Enrique will win La Liga title the day 35, if they beat Sporting Gijon at Nou Camp on April 23 and 24.
The calendar for the next 5 days for Barcelona is more comlicated than Atlético Madrid's: Real Madrid (home), Real Sociedad (away), Valencia (home), Deportivo (away) and Sporting (home). Simeone's team will have to face Betis (home), Espanyol (away), Granada (home), Athletic (away) and Rayo (home).
If Atlético lose on some of these games and Barça win them all, the consecution of the title could advance. Conversely, a defeat of Barça against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou would make the whites approach to seven points, which could prolong the wait to get the 24th league title in the club's history. The last three league matches for Barça are: Espanyol (home); Granada (away) and Sevilla (home).
