So now Madrid slipped up... Hmm this is going to be interesting.
3 days is all it takes. From outright leaders to chasing massively. :( Also, sad to here about Valdes.
this Fcuking sucks massive balls!! 2 straight losses and now 3 points behind the leaders. lets hope barca and atletico slip up before their final day fixture against each other.
C'mon Athletico! Really hope they break the norm in La Liga.
Agreed. May even convince Costa to remain at Atletico
That would actually be fantastic.
That match against BVB is looking scarier by the minute. The team lacks form and confidence now...
I wouldn't worry. Of the players that beat Real last year, only 3 or 4 are playing the first leg.
Damn, what a turnaround. Athletico WILL drop points before they meet Barca, they visit Bilbao this saturday, tough place to get 3 points... and they also have a match against Valencia away, where they can easily be stunned. The following weeks will be tough for all three teams, they face quite a few teams from the upper part of the table, and Barca without Valdes, Madrid losing confidence and in 3rd place, and that match between Barca and Athletico, good thing it is at Camp Nou...
Barca have Espanyol away tomorrow aswell that's a pretty tough game, and Atletico have Bilbao away too so there could be another switch around already.
Real's problem is the head2head issue - even if Atletico lose, they stay ahead of Real by virtue of results between the two (the same applies between Barca and Real where Barca have the upper hand). Given how close it is this could be crucial in the end (a bit like when City won over Utd only on goal difference, but unlike goal difference there is no way to rectify head2head - once you lose the other team has the advantage until the end).
