How the table looks:
Today’s clash is, as mentioned, a potential title decider.
Both teams are going blow for blow at the top of the table and Girona, the surprise package of the season, now look to genuinely be in the race for the LaLiga trophy.
It’s taken a while for people to decide whether or not they could fall off as the match day counter ticks on, but now it seems that indeed they are in the race against Real Madrid for the title.
Real Madrid, given their dropped points against Atlético last week, are just 2 points ahead of their Catalan opponents, who are on 56 after 23 games.
Both sides have only lost a single game all season: Real Madrid’s came against Atlético back in September; Girona’s sole defeat came 6 days after. Their opponents? Real Madrid.
