As we head into the final 13 games of the La Liga, the table shows a clear picture of performances from the teams this season. A title-race as close as it has been in the league for a decade and a relegation battle in which every team scraps it out to stay away from the bottom-3.
The relegation battle in the La Liga seems to be more settled than other leagues around Europe. With Real Betis destined for the drop after having picked up only 14 points from 25 games, it’s down to Rayo Vallecano and Reayo Vallecanolid to claw their way out of the bottom-3. From 12th placed Granada to 17th placed Malaga, all teams are anxiously looking over their shoulders and trying their level best to stay away from the bottom 3. 2 points separating 5 teams sitting just 3 points above the bottom teams certainly rack up the excitement as we head into an anxious and nail-biting finish.
With Sevilla FC more-or-less sealing their 7th placed Europa league qualification, a fight for the final Champions League spot brews between surprise package Villareal, Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao. 4th placed Bilbao is just 3 points above 6th placed Sociedad and with a huge bounty for Champions League qualification in store, it’s a given that these teams will give it their best shot.
The title-race of La Liga 2013-14 is one of the tightest and most intense one in many years. The top 3 are separated by 3 points as we head into the final fixtures. Add to that the fact that every team will face their title-rivals at least once and we have a gem of a title-race at our hands. It’s all down to the goal-scoring prowess of Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi that will get thir team over the line.
La Liga 2014 is one of the most competitive leagues for quite a long time and the epic battles between the clubs playing mind-games has only enhanced viewership and subscribers.
