Can Barcelona Win La Liga Title on Saturday?Published on May 10th, 2016 8:01 pm EST
With just one week left in what has been a thrilling La Liga season, Barcelona looks to cement another league title when they square off against Granada on Saturday.
Real Madrid, which currently sits just one point back of their arch-nemesis in the table, will hope that Granada will cause the mighty Barcelona side to slip up. Real Madrid will be playing Deportivo La Coruna on the road and will need a victory and a Barcelona draw or loss in order to win La Liga.
Barcelona, following a stumble roughly a month ago, has returned to top form. Barcelona looked in danger of completely destroying their season last month, as they lost their Champions League aspirations and gave up valuable ground in La Liga. The club, however, managed to right the ship just in time and could cement a La Liga victory on Saturday.
Here are the current odds for Saturday's clash against Granada:
As you can see, Granada, which is in the bottom half of the table, is being given virtually zero chance of beating a motivated Barcelona club.
Granada's biggest challenge will be stopping the three-headed monster of Messi, Suarez and Neymar, Jr. These three have destroyed the league so far this season, leading Barcelona to a league leading total of 109 goals. This offensive output may become important this weekend, as Barcelona currently has a +6 goal differential over Real Madrid and this figure may end up winning them the league.
According to the bookmakers, the two likeliest results of Saturday's clash are 3-0 and 4-0 victories for Barcelona, both of which are currently trading for 8.00.
Can Granada pull off the improbable victory in front of their home fans, or will Barcelona win and take down another La Liga title?
