This is a far cry from just a few months ago, when Barcelona had a comfortable lead over the rest of the league and looked set to clinch the title. However, Real Madrid have shown a fighting spirit and have had some impressive results in recent weeks. This has enabled them to close the gap, and with 15 games remaining, they are now within striking distance of the title.
The recent result against Almeria, where Barcelona dropped two points after a 1-0 loss, has given Real Madrid fans even more reason to believe. It was the first time since December that Barcelona had failed to win in the league, and it was a huge blow to their title aspirations.
Real Madrid now have a real chance of winning the league, and they will be hoping to take full advantage of Barcelona’s slip-up. All they need to do is continue winning their remaining games and not let Barcelona close the gap back up.
Real Madrid fans should be rejoicing at their title chances as their rivals have finally dropped points. With 15 games remaining, anything is possible, and Real Madrid have a real chance of winning the La Liga title.
