Leaders Barcelona could effectively wrap up the title by beating arch-rivals Real Madrid at the Bernabeu next weekend, Pep Guardiola said on Saturday.
The champions came from behind to see off basement side Almeria 3-1 in a nervy display at the
Nou Camp where two goals from Lionel Messi helped them maintain their eight-point advantage over second-placed Real.
Earlier, Jose Mourinho's team eased to a 3-0 victory at Athletic Bilbao but with seven matches left to play starting with next Saturday's 'clasico', time is running out if they are to deny Barca a hat-trick of La Liga crowns.
"It is a unique opportunity to strike a decisive blow," Guardiola told a news conference.
