Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Athletic of Madrid goes way to win his eleventh League​ this season and is completing a Spanish championship absolutely spectacular. However, in spite of his command, to the rojiblancos argues them day after day that go leaders thanks to that FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are doing an abysmal year. A thought that with the numbers in the hand could not be more erroneous.

In these moments, the colchoneros have 62 points with 26 days contested, a record of punctuation for them, since up to now with 26 parties played the maximum that had achieved to add were 61 in the campaign 2013/2014. Precisely this course, the ones of the Cholo Simeone conquered the title suspender belt surpassing to the Barça and to the Madrid, that to these heights in 2014 went first and second.

In LaLiga that won does already seven years, the rojiblancos finish with 90 points, some registers that are in position to beat this season if they follow to this rhythm. To put in value the year that is doing the Atleti it is necessary to say that of the last six Leagues, the Madrilenian would go first in four to these heights. Only in the courses 15/16 17/18 the Barcelona carried better punctuation, in this case 66 in both.

Taking for example the past campaign, the ones of Simeone would go leaders regarding Madrid and Barça with almost the same points of advantage that now. In the day 26, the Madrid added 56 points (now has 54) and the culés 55 (now carry 56), by what in this case the ones of Wanda Metropolitan also would go stood out, as they are doing this season from practically the start of the same.

It is evident that the colchoneros are making a grandísimo year to level of punctuation and that at all has to see that madridistas and barcelonistas are not giving his best version. Other courses, the Catalans and the ones of the Spanish capital were something better that now yet still this Athletic had gone leader. However, it will be necessary to see if they attain to keep the rhythm, since these last days are costing him much more.

The Athletic has given a bajón in League

The rojiblancos are suffering from does several weeks to take out his parties advance and right now each meeting is a final for them. This Wednesday, in front of the Athletic Club, the ones of the Cholo won by an adjusted 2-1 and had to trace back the 0-1 of Iker Munian. Finally, a goal of rebound of Marcos Llorente and another of a doubtful penalti of Luis Suárez gave him the turn to the marker, but to win this League will need to recover the shine or the 'pricks' could begin to arrive sooner that late.
