The Spanish top flight has drawn the curtain on its league after Madrid beat Villarreal and Barcelona took the spoils in a battle against Osasuna. Although two teams have officially been relegated (Espanyol and Mallorca) from the league, we still have a final day to behold as one spot if up for grab. This is where Real Madrid is called upon to perform its last job of the domestic season.
Nobody would love to be in a position to grab that spot. It's a calamitous spot because it sends you down the hierarchy of the competition after a long battle over the course of 38 games.
There is one game though which has the potential of being the best scene before the curtain is officially drawn on the la Liga season. That game features the current champions, Real Madrid as they take on Leganes.
The Last Job.
Win and keep the momentum going as they head into the Champions League or play a relaxed game and give Leganes a lifeline if things work out well in other games.
Leganes are only '90 minutes' away from making sure they play in the top flight next season or risk starting a whole season in the second division called La Liga Smartbank.
Leganes will be going into the game with everything they have even though their fans wouldn't be available to cheer the team on. A win for Leganes would present them the opportunity to remain in the league.
That's not the only factor though, Leganes would also have to pray Espanyol beats or earn themselves a point in their game against Celta Vigo.
Remember Espanyol and Barcelona are from the same city but Barcelona were the ones who sent Espanyol packing out of the La Liga whereas Celta Vigo boasts itself as the team that began the crusade of denying Barcelona the league after Apsas scored a 'late' freekick against them. That's the irony of life.
Both teams (Celta and Espanyol) are connected to Barcelona in one way or the other.
Can Celta Vigo hurt an already relegated Espanyol or would Espanyol play for pride and make sure they finish the season as men?
Can Leganes pull up any surprises against Zidane's men? Let's wait and see.
