They are living the last two days of LaLiga Santander 2022-2023 and, although FC Barcelona was already proclaimed champion two weeks ago, Xavi Hernández's men will try to improve their records
LaLiga Is arriving to his final and the FC Barcelona, although it already is champion, will look for to add the six points that remain at stake after adding two consecutive defeats, in front of the Real Sociedad and Valladolid. They have been presentations very negative by part of the Barcelona and Xavi Hernández will have to do adjust them pertinent so that çierren the course with good feelings (and victories).
One of the aims that had posed the Catalans after 'top' was to equalise or surpass the greater difference of points regarding the second position, that is of 15 points. They had implanted it the blaugrana in the season 2012-2013 when they achieved 100 units by the 85 of the Real Madrid. This year, it will be impossible to achieve it.
With the victory of the White House in front of the Seville, have kept in the second square with 77 points, eight less than the Barça before it play against the RCD Mallorca. In case that the Madrid do not mark in Santiago Bernabéu in front of the Athletic Club and the culés win his two parties, could add 'only' 91 units, that would be 14 pts of difference, equalising what already had achieved in the 2017-2018 (93 vs 79 of the Athletic).
The maximum differences in the history of LaLiga
In the ranking of maximum differences between first and second place is the season 1985-86, when the Madrid won with 11 points of difference (56 vs the 45 of the Barça) the same that in the 87-88 in front of the Real Sociedad (62 vs 51), same figure that in the 2018-19 for the culés (87 vs 76 of the Atleti), in the 1998-99 (79 vs 68 in front of the merengues). In the section of 12 units by on, is the one of the White House against the 'colchoneros' in the 1960-61 (52 vs 40), same leading in the 1962-63 (49 vs 37 in favour of the madridistas).
The Madrid achieved this advantage once again in the 1974-73, with the Saragossa like rival (50 vs 38), whereas the Barça achieved it once in the course 2005-2006, in front of the Madrilenian (82 vs 70). With thirteen points of advantage only there is a register, reached by the ones of Carlo Ancelotti in the past season (86 vs 73), to the equal that with 14 units, obtained by the Barcelona in the 2017-18 in his rivalry in front of the Athletic (93 vs 79) and, finally, the 15 of the 2012-13 in front of the Madrid (100 vs 85).
