FC Barcelona and Real Madrid share a week more the leadership of LaLiga, since any attained to tie up the victory in the Classical. In the Camp Nou were very near to give the hit the pupilos of Zinedine Zidane, but the ones of Ernesto Valverde resisted and also had of options to do with the triumph. At the end, neither one neither another achieved to win, by what there was distribution of points in the City Condal.

Still it remains a lot of championship and there is spare time to take advantage, but to day of today the tie in the summit keeps and only the difference of goals allows to the Catalans rest in the first place. In the general classification, these command with a total of +23 in subtracts it between targets in favour and against, whereas the Madrilenian are slightly by behind with a +21 that expect to improve in next appointments.

It does long that this balance does not keep until the last day, but in case that it did it, what sucedería? The regulation of the Real Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF) contemplate all the suppositions to decide in case of scored tie, so much regarding the highest part of the table, as in any one of the equalities that can produce, from the first to the twentieth position.

The first criterion of tiebreaker is the difference of goals in the direct duels, that has a precedent in the campaign 2006-07. Then, the title was to stop to the capital because the balance between the two involved -in this case also Barça and Madrid- was favourable to the 'merengues'. In Santiago Bernabéu certified a 2-0 and in the Camp Nou a 3-3, what left to the men of Fabio Capello in a position inmejorable (5-3). Thus, it will be necessary to loan special attention to the party of turn, that would be determinant if this peculiar hand manually continues.

The second option goes through the difference of general goals, that is to say, the one who achieve both groups in the global of the competition. For the moment, with 17 commitments per person, the Barcelona are in head thanks to the mentioned +23, since they accumulate 43 so many in favour and 20 against. The whites take out his +21 of the 33 annotated and the 12 fit, what would leave them by detras in the following stage. If the tie kept , the marked goals would be definite, and the one who more added, would remain by on.

Criteria of tiebreaker of LaLiga with three or more teams

As Barça and Madrid have showed more irregular that of habit, would not be descabellado think that it could give a tie to three. In this case, or even if they were more the clubs that were in equality of points contesting a same square, the RFEF also has criteria that would differentiate the particular classification that would reposition to each one in his place. Athletic, Seville or even Real Sociedad, Athleti Club or Getafe dream with the difficult task to plant face to the two big.

In these circumstances, would study the punctuation between the involved as if the rest had not participated, measuring the first particular balance, the difference of goals afterwards, and, if still there was equality, the 'goal average' general -and if even like this persisted, the criterion of greater quantity of goals in favour-. En última instancia, if all this did not launch a winner, the 'Clean Game' would be the key, and factors like the cards and the faults committed would finish for choosing to the champion.
