Gone was that moment in which Atlético of Madrid held a 10-point lead at the top of the table, even with some pending games. Now, La Liga in Spain has become exciting to the point that there are four teams separated by three points with five days remaining: Diego Simeone's team, leader of the competition, is chased by Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Aleti isn't going through its best moment and in its last presentation it lost 2 to 1 against Athletic Bilbao. In addition, the injury that marginalized Luis Suárez from the last games has generated a headache for the coach who had to face several commitments without his top gunner. Despite this, the stumbling blocks of his pursuers allow him to remain at the forefront of the tournament and be the leader with 73 points.

Barcelona, ​​which accumulates 71 units, wasted today the great opportunity to snatch the lead from the Colchonero. Ronald Koeman's team lost 2 to 1 at home against Granada, a club that had never even taken a draw at the Camp Nou, and remains as a guard in the same vein as Real Madrid. Although on May 8, by date 35, he will have a unique opportunity when he receives Aleti in his stadium with the sole objective of winning.

In this race to win the title, Zinedinde Zidane's team, which has 71 points, suffers a clear disadvantage, not only because it does not depend on itself, but it is also the only candidate who still has European commitments: it is in the semifinals of the Champions League and must be measured next week against Chelsea, after 1 to 1 in the first leg.

Fourth in the table appears Sevilla, which has quietly gotten into the fight thanks to the stumbling blocks of its rivals. Julen Lopetegui's team won 7 of their last eight games, the rest tied, and now they have 70 points, three less than Atlético. To give context to his performance, the Andalusian cast was the only one who added three in his last presentation, but his future seems to be linked to what happens on May 9, when he visits Real Madrid at the Alfredo Di Stefano.
