The League is on fire, and the 2020-21 season champion points out that it will be defined on the last day, after the Atlético de Madrid debacle, Real Madrid’s irregularity, and the attempted resurgence of Barcelona.
It will be on May 23, when the last day of the season is played, and the question is, will Atlético de Madrid be able to withstand Barcelona and Real Madrid’s pressure until that day?
It should be remembered that in the event that points are tied in the general table, the first tiebreaker criterion is direct duels, not goal difference, and in that sense, Real Madrid has an advantage, since it beat Barcelona the two classics, and against Atlético, they register a win and a draw.
At what point was La Liga tightened?
La Liga tightened, especially after the classic that Real Madrid won 2-1 over Barcelona, which ended a 17-game streak without defeat in the local tournament.
On that same day, Atlético de Madrid drew against Real Betis. That result left the Colchoneros with a record of just two wins in seven games, which left the overall table like this:
