The title of Spanish soccer will be defined in the last five days between four applicants. In the last game on date number 33, Barcelona had the opportunity to take the lead, as they could have surpassed Atlético of Madrid's score. However, after Granada's victory, the possibility of the championship receded and David Faitelson, true to his style, did not miss the opportunity to criticize his performance.
"The Barcelona of the 'gypsies' ... It goes from the sublime to the ridiculous from one day to the next ... It is not a reliable team ...", as well as "Barcelona explodes a grenade in his hand", were the messages that broadcast in the last minutes and at the end of the meeting held at the Camp Nou, through his account @Faitelson_ESPN.
And is that after a streak of three games won, including the final of the Copa del Rey against Athletic Bilbao, the fans dreamed of the overall leadership of the tournament. On matchday 31 they beat Getafe by five goals to two. Although this victory could have been predicted, the surprise came the following day, when a double by Antoine Griezmann sealed the victory against Villarreal, a team better classified than Granada.
With 71 units, a victory against the ninth best team would increase their record to 74 over the 73 of the Colchoneros. Against this background, a victory in the match against those from the capital would have been enough for the Catalans to secure the coveted league title. In addition to this, the confidence of all the fans culé arrived at 23 minutes of the feet of the Argentine star Lionel Messi.
