If Real Madrid lose against Granada this Thursday, the calculator to close the alirón will begin to spark in the last two days
The Atlético de Madrid took a leap forward to the title of The league, took advantage of the puncture of Barcelona in his visit to Levante (3-3) and beat Real Sociedad (2-1) to distance himself four points from the Barça team and five from Real Madrid, which has a pending match, this Thursday in Grenade.

The Basque team wants to get rid of the discomfort of competing in the previous rounds of the Europa League and it still hasn’t solved that problem.
The fault was a consistent red-and-white first half, in which the Belgian Yannick Carrasco and the Argentine Angel Correa they advanced to Athletic, who then held the lead with three worthwhile interventions from Slovenian Jan Oblak, especially a chance from Swede Alexander Isak.

Only 180 minutes separate him from what would be his eleventh trophy.
