When could Real Madrid be crowned LaLiga champions? Los Blancos cannot now be crowned champions against Alavés next Friday.
Barcelona’s win at Villarreal on Sunday cut Real Madrid’s lead at the top of LaLiga back to four points. That means Los Blancos will not seal champions against Alavés next Friday.
Real Madrid will host Villarreal on Thursday 16 July. Regardless of Barcelona’s results between now and then, Madrid know they will finish top of the table if they beat Alavés and Granada. Moreover, they also have to claim three points against the Submarino Amarillo.
However, if Barcelona don’t drop any points between now and Thursday 16 July, Real Madrid will be champions on this day if they win their next three games.
Real Madrid’s remaining fixtures
- Alavés (Friday 10)
- Granada (Monday 13)
Barcelona’s remaining fixtures
- Espanyol (Wednesday 8)
- Valladolid (Saturday 11)
