Points Table Overview

  • Real Madrid are back on the top after a great win over FC Barcelona. The goal difference between both the teams is the same and Madrid just leads by a solitary point. The head to head is still in favor of Real Madrid and may play an important part in deciding who would win the league if both the teams end with the same goal difference and points.
  • Barcelona are second and just a one point behind Zinedine Zidane’s Madrid. They need to keep winning their games in order to remain the contender to win the league.
  • Sevilla have bounced to the third place from fourth after their win against Osasuna. They trail by nine points from the second spot and by ten from the first. They still have a long way to go even to maintain their place amongst the top four.
  • Getafe FC has also climbed to the fourth place and are just one point short of the third spot as well. They too need to keep putting up great performances to at least maintain the top four position.
  • Atletico Madrid have dropped to the fifth place from third despite just drawing a game. This clearly shows how tough is the fight is from third position onwards and the teams need to keep putting good shows in order to at least grab the third and fourth spot and make it to the UEFA Champions League.
  • Real Sociedad and Valencia both retain their sixth and seventh spot respectively.
  • Celta Vigo drew its important game and is now kind of safe from relegation. The teams that are now on the verge of relegation are Mallorca, Leganes and Espanyol.
