Winner of Granada, this Thursday, as part of the 36th day of La Liga (1-4), Real Madrid can still challenge the title at Atlético de Madrid.
Two days from the end of the season, La Liga has not yet appointed its champion. If the Barça undoubtedly lost feathers by allowing himself to be neutralized by Levante on Tuesday evening (3-3), thus finding himself four lengths of a Athletic leader and striker Wednesday of Real Sociedad (2-1), the Real Madrid for his part did not fail on the ground of Granada.
Faced with an opponent capable of the best this season but declining in recent weeks, Zinedine Zidane’s men have made the game easy. Modric struck from the 17e minute, then Rodrygo signed the goal of the break just before the break (45e+1). The veteran Molina, 39 years old, relaunched his team in the second half (71e), but the Madrilenians did not tremble so far.
Real have a trump card
In the process, Odriozola and Benzema, in quick succession (75e, 76e), sealed the success of the White House (1-4) and thus allowed Real to return to only two lengths from the top. On paper, the calendar of the Merengues – Bilbao (9e) then Villarreal (7e) – seems more complicated. But the Colchoneros, who still have to do battle with Osasuna (11e) and Valladolid (18e), are not safe from a misstep. A gap, even a small one, which could be fatal for them since Real, in the event of a tie, has the upper hand in the balance of direct confrontations.
