One point away from the league title


Barça are eight points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid with just three matches remaining, so need just one point to claim the title.

Tonight’s draw against Villarreal combined with defeat for Real Madrid on Saturday means that Barça have increased their lead at the top of the league table to eight points.

The possibilities

Real Madrid travel to Villarreal next Saturday and any result except a win for the visitors would crown Barça as league champions without kicking a ball.

However, if Real Madrid manages to take the three points from the Madrigal, Barça will still be champions if they draw or win away to Mallorca next Sunday.

The only combination of results that would delay the title celebrations for a week longer would be a defeat for Barça and a win for Real Madrid. If that happened Barça would have a five-point lead with two games to play.
