The LaLiga Santander title race is heating up, with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Real Madrid vying for the title.
Los Colchoneros are currently in first place, but they've had a poor run of late, with Barcelona storming back into contention.
LaLiga opportunities for Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
Atletico Madrid have a four-point lead over Barcelona and a six-point lead over Real Madrid, putting their fate in their own hands
There are no distractions: Neither the Champions League nor the Copa del Rey can divert their attention away from the title.
El Clasico: Real Madrid and Barcelona will face off on April 10 at 21:00 CET, ensuring that at least one of their title rivals will lose points.
Pressure: Being in front of the pack puts you under a lot of stress. When Atletic plays after Barcelona, they know they have to win because of the Catalans' recent form.
Real Madrid has a better head-to-head record than Atletico Madrid. They defeated Barcelona 1-0 in their first meeting, and the two teams will meet again on May 8/9.
Atletico will also have to travel to Sevilla, Real Betis, Athletic Club, and Barcelona.
Unleashed: The 6-1 victory at Real Sociedad brought the team's LaLiga Santander unbeaten streak to three months and 18 games, with 15 wins. They've taken 37 of the last 39 points up for grabs.
Messi is in top form, and he's taking a break: Barcelona's improvement has paralleled Lionel Messi. Argentina will not play any international matches this month, allowing him to prepare for the final sprint.
Gerard Pique's return: Gerard Pique has returned to the team to replace Ronald Araujo in the backline. Frenkie de Jong will also be able to return to midfield as a result of this.
Head-to-head: Barcelona lost to both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the first half of the season, and will have to defeat both teams before the season ends.
Copa del Rey final: On April 17, the Catalans face Athletic in the Copa del Rey final, just days after facing Real Madrid in the El Clasico.
Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid: The top two teams meet at the Camp Nou, which means one of them will lose points.
A winning streak: Los Blancos won 10 games in a row last season to win the title, and they could do it again this year.
They can't afford to lose: Real Madrid must win every game to stay in the title race.
Champions League: Having to play Liverpool twice in the Champions League may force LaLiga Santander to make rotations.
The most difficult remaining fixtures: Los Blancos must still face Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, Athletic, and Villarreal.
