The Whites, who have a three-point advantage over Barcelona, will need just a point against Málaga in order to win the title.
The moment of truth is here. There are no more chances for Real Madrid and Barcelona in the fight for the LaLiga title. The Whites go into the final game with a three-point advantage over their rivals, and therefore still depend on themselves to lift the title.
The team has shown it’s capacities over the years of winning the league on the last day of the season, and if Barcelona win against Éibar at the Camp Nou, the Whites will need just a point against Málaga at La Rosaleda in order to win LaLiga (8:00pm CEST). If their title rivals lose, Real Madrid will be champions.
Top away goal scorers in the history of LaLiga
The Whites’ record away from home in LaLiga show the goal scoring calibre of the madridistas. In fact, with 56 goals, they are now top away goal scorers in the history of the competition and have gone eight games victorious away from home. Villarreal, Éibar, Athletic, Leganés, Sporting, Deportivo, Granada and Celta have all fallen victim to Zidane’s side.
Opposition on fine form
Málaga are in their best run of form this season. The Andalusian side, who have already beaten Barcelona at La Rosaleda this term, have not lost in their last five games: winning four of those (against Valencia, Granada, Sevilla and Celta) and drawing once (Real Sociedad).
Sandro, with 16 goals, is the top scorer in Míchel’s side. The coach has injury worries though, Rosales, Juanpi, Koné and Kuzmanovic are all out, whilst Peñaranda, has been called up by the Venezuela Under-20s as part of their World Cup commitments in South Korea.
