This Liga Santander 2019-20 plays in a tile. After the day 12 there are three co-leaders and the seventh, the Getafe, is to so only three points to reach the leadership
It seems that anybody want to win this League Santander 2019-20 and, at the same time, all are candidates to win it. Ladies and gentlemen, find us in front of the most equalised League in the last 21 years. From the campaign 1998-99, never had since the seven first qualifiers were distanciados by so only three points, a minimum difference.
Between the Barça, first, with 22 points, and the Getafe, seventh, with 19, there is so only three points of difference and the azulones have to shot the leadership in spite of finding out of the places that give access to European competitions. The theorists three 'big' of LaLiga -Barça, Madrid and Athletic- are not finding the regularity of other seasons, and this are taking advantage of it 'outsiders' as Real Sociedad, Seville, Granada and Getafe.
And it is that, with the victory harvested this Sunday in The Cármenes thanks to a doublet of Portu, the Real Sociedad leaves third with the same points that Barça and Madrid. It did 17 years that the donostiarras were not so near of the positions of honour (in the 02-03 went first with 26 points), from the period of the mythical Nihat, Kovacevic and Xabi Alonso.
The big equality that breathes in the current classification liguera reflects in data very notable, like the fact that the Barça have lost already eleven points in the eleven parties contested (fault for playing the Classical of the day 11). Five of these points have left against two recently risen, Granada and Osasuna. They remain very backwards, therefore, the bipolar Leagues in which FC Barcelona and Real Madrid attained the gesta to arrive until the 100 points.
In the season 2011-12, the Real Madrid of Mourinho reached this figure and to the following year, the Barça equalised it under the control of Tito Vilanova. In the current League, arrive to the figure of 100 points is an authentic utopia, and Barça and Madrid so only could lose three points to day of today, during what subtracts of competition, to arrive until similar registers.
They have happened already 12 days and six distinct teams have gone through the leadership. The Real Madrid has been it in four occasions, the Barça in three, the Seville in two and Athletic, Athletic and Granada, in an occasion. In the last 25 years, so only in the season 05-06 there were so many distinct leaders to these heights of course.
Only there was a more equalised League that this
Simultaneously, it fits to remember that since the victories cost three points only there has been a campaign that have been more equalised that the current these heights of LaLiga. It was in the season 1998-99, when in the day 12 until eight teams found classified in a baldosa of three points. The Mallorca was leader with 22 and the eighth qualifier, the Saragossa carried 19 and had to shot the leadership. Celtic, Real Madrid, Athletic, Sportive, Barça and Valencia found in a stretch of two points. At the end that League did not finish so equalised, since the Barça took carrerilla and finish carrying the title with 79 points, 11 more than the Real Madrid.
It was as it was and throwing the sight backwards, a thing is clear: we find us in front of a little usual situation with what is sucediendo in the present League. The teams will play each party as if it went a final, conscious that the result can sink them or catapult them in the classification. All a luxury for the viewer. So... We enjoy!
