Three more games to the end!
Here's a look at each team's remaining matches.
As the season is going on the two teams are getting closer to the big day every day.
On Matchday 36, Barcelona went against Real Valladolid on July 11th where they won the match 1-0. Real Madrid on the other side, is going to go against Granada on Monday.
Later on Matchday 37, Barcelona faces Osasuna, while Real Madrid goes against Villarreal.
Finally, on Matchday 38 Barcelona has to face Alaves, and Real Madrid goes against Leganes.
Now there is one more question!
What if they finish the season tied atop the table?
First, we have to mention that in most leagues, the first tiebreaker is goal differential. However, in La Liga, the first tiebreaker is head-to-head points, meaning the number of points the teams earned against each other this season in their two meetings.
In this case, we know that the first time the two teams faced, the game was over in a 0-0 draw.
However, their second match in March was over with Real’s 2-0 win over the Catalans at Santiago Bernabéu.
That means in two matches, Real Madrid has earned four points while Barca took one point.
Because of this, if the two clubs finish the season tied on points, the title goes to Real Madrid.
