LaLiga has turned into the most equalised of the last times, after 12 dates contested, as it exists a difference of very few points between Europe and the descent
Although LaLiga is not Second Division, where any team can win to the favourites, this season 2020-21 is being more equalised that never. It did a lot that it did not occur that the distance between the European places and the positions of descent was so short. Between the Seville, sixth qualifier, and Osasuna, in the box 18, so only there are 5 points of difference.
In this third of LaLiga, the surprises have been stood out. Incredible results like the victories of the Cádiz in front of the big Barça and Madrid, also the triumph in front of the Athletic with 10 players; the tie of the Huesca in the Alcoraz in front of the Athletic of Madrid, current leader of LaLiga, or the impressive moment that presents in the table clasificatoria the Real Sociedad, in the second place, and a Villarreal occupying the third.
While, the Barcelona finds out of the European places, specifically with 14 points, punctuation that shares with teams like Eibar, Elche and Alavés. Situation that lights the alarms in the Catalan club. The change of calendar could be an important appearance for the teams that litigate the first positions of the tournament.
Because of the pandemia, adjusted the dates and contested split each three days to culminate the past season. The following season began in a distinct date and demanded play each three days. The answer for the costliest staff of LaLiga (Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletic of Madrid, Seville, Villarreal) has arrived in shape of an important list of players lesionados.
The fault of pre-season also plays an important factor. Few clubs repeat his usual alignments, what causes that the results change and was more difficult to attain the aims. It is not the same to compete in important parties with the best players to have to do it with some of the most frequent. Besides, the factor of the public plants a big difference in the clashes, by what already know that the sanitary situation prevents that they exist capacities in the stadiums and is not the same to have the support and breath of the fans, that play without public.
Play in fields like Saint Mamés, Villamarín, Mestalla or the Sánchez-Pizjuán is not the same now. The intensity that lives in this environment is a plus anímico for the team, but now has grown a statistics where the teams take out more points like visitors that like venues.
If we speak of the positions of descent, exists a margin where any one that was underneath of 16 points, can opt by the descent. After long there is not any club descolgado, since the Huesca, that is colista of LaLiga with 8 points, finds to a victory to go out of the places of descent and until can add here nine teams, included a FC Barcelona that finds to 3 points of the positions but drop of LaLiga.
The difference of Spain to other Leagues 'top' of Europe
The equality in the half zone of the First Division of Spain does not present in any another league. In the Premier League, the four first are separated by three points. In Bundesliga and Tie 1 occur the same with the three first, but the numerical space between the places of European classification and the descent is very separate. 14 points in England, 9 points in Bundesliga, 13 in Tie it 1 and 12 by the Series To.
