Match Info: Spanish La Liga/ Date: Saturday, 6th May 2017/ Camp Nou, Barcelona.
Barca are hoping for Real Madrid to slip some points in the upcoming four matches as Los Blancos have a game at hand. On the other hand, Villarreal are currently atop UEFA Europa League race but they are aware that they can’t count on points in Barcelona.
Despite Barca are La Liga leaders at the moment and even if they win all the upcoming matches, in order to lift the Spanish league title Real Madrid must suffer a defeat or draw two games, which is highly unlikely.
