Well folks, we’re finally here. The year began with Barcelona and Atlético Madrid tied on 38 points with Real Madrid ahead by a point and a game in hand. What seemed like a crisis then seems like a golden opportunity now. Barça lead the Primera division with 68 points, four points ahead of their eternal rivals, eight points ahead of third place Valencia, and nine points separating them from title holders Atlético Madrid. The boys have stopped the RojiBlancos, knocked them out of the Copa del Rey, destroyed the Premier League champions and clinched a victory against the European champions. But while everything seems nice and rosy, all of this would be for nothing if Barça doesn’t keep up the pace in their final tests.
It’s time for the business-end of the season marathon!
