Both Madrid teams might be ready to fight it out at Milano for the Champions League title, but the La-Liga would still remain favourable to Barcelona. Atletico Madrid made their exit from the Spanish League after their terrible loss to a relegated Levante side as Real and Barcelona should look forward to an exciting final round of play.
As per the Goal reports, Real Madrid still needs a “miracle” to edge past Barcelona and get their hands on the La-Liga title. Real’s “hard-fought” victory against Levante on Sunday might have kept them in the race, but the road would be tough ahead.
“I’m always positive,” Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “We have one game left to play, anything can happen. We have to give everything and … we will see what happens right up until the end, until the very last minute.”
As per the Daily Mail reports, Barcelona routedEspanyoll 5-0 in Sunday night’s encounter as Luis Suarez pumped two goals in their win.

“We had good rhythm from the start, creating pressure following turnovers,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. “We played a complete game, I’m happy with what we’ve achieved. Now we just have to put it away by beating Granada.”

Earlier reports suggested that Atletico might take over the Catalonians on the title race as they were tied on the points table early in the weekend. But their surprise 2-1 defeat against Levante crushed all hopes.
Barcelona would be trying to clinch the trophy for the sixth time in eight seasons while Madrid would be looking to win the Spanish league for the first time since 2012 or twice in eight seasons.
The Barcelona side had a terrific start to their season but lost a bit of momentum later in the league stages. They seem to be right back on track now.
