Barça-Real, the numbers that kill


By: Manu Tournoux

According to statistics, Real Madrid are widely favored to win the title…

Unless there is a turnaround, FC Barcelona seems destined to cede its title of champion of Spain to the benefit of Real Madrid, who currently occupies first place in La Liga with a lead of 8 points.

According to Score 90 data, rival Madrid are 94% favorites to win their 36th Spanish league title, while the Blaugranas have just a 6% chance, ahead of Girona and Atlético Madrid, with less than 1%. However, despite these discouraging statistics, coach Xavi claimed that Barca have not given up on the idea of ​​competing for the title.

11 matches without defeat

“I always said we would not give up, I believe we have made progress. We have just achieved a series of 15 points out of 15, or rather 13, right? We are therefore in good momentum in the championship, and we must believe in it until the end, as long as it remains mathematically possible. I think it's achievable. »

“We put pressure on Girona, who we overtook in the table today, and we also put pressure on Real Madrid to win their matches”, declared the former metronome of Culés during a press conference last February. In addition, the Barcelonans maintain an impressive series of 11 games without defeat (8 wins and 3 draws), enough to strengthen their confidence.
