It is time for the final showdown in the 2020-21 season of LaLiga as the title goes down the wire in what has been an extremely crazy season in Spain. It has been four-horse racing for the most part of the season but Barcelona and Sevilla have unfortunately missed out after dropping a few points in the last few matches, which has confirmed that the title will indeed go to the city of Madrid.
The two arch-rivals – Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid will be fighting it out for the ultimate glory on Saturday. Diego Simeone’s side is in the hot seat to win the title, sitting at top of the summit with 83 points. However, Zinedine Zidane’s team are reeling behind them with 81 points. With only one match remaining for both teams in this season, the stage is certainly set for a blockbuster evening in Spain.
