The title is not yet played in League, but Real Madrid now have a hand on the trophy. The players of Zidane took the best on Granada (2-1) on the move, chaining a ninth success in a row since the resumption of the Spanish championship, which condemns Barça to refuel until the end. While hoping at the same time one or more missteps of the Madrid people. But the chances of Barça diminish as we get closer to the term. There are indeed two days to go, and Real still has four points ahead of the evening of the 36th day of Liga. A preserved mattress he owes to his French people.

Titled during the next day?

The first hero is a little unexpected, since it is Ferland Mendy, who had never scored under the colors of Real Madrid. Left to rush into the surface, left side, the international side fired a left missile under the helm of Silva (10th), to an achievement he will remember for a long time, especially if she participates in offering the title to her team. Karim Benzema, sparkling since the resumption, doubled the bet with a beautiful sequence of hook-strike wound with the right foot (16th). Real Madrid managed after this big start to return to the locker room with a two-goal lead. A short-term advantage since Grenada struck.

Real Madrid, which had not conceded the slightest goal for five games, was surprised at the recovery by the reduction of the very fast score of Machis (50th), following a loss of ball from Casemiro, often exceeded in second period. The people of Madrid suddenly lost control of operations and control of the tempo. Often challenged in the last minutes of regulation time, the men of Zinedine Zidane continued to be afraid, without however suffering the consequences of their few blunders, Sergio Ramos and Thivaut Courtois watching over the grain. Real will welcome Villarreal on the next day before going to Leganés with perhaps the title in their pocket. It only depends on him.
