Real Madrid one win away from La Liga title
Madrid: Real Madrid will be crowned the champions of the Spanish Primera Liga Wednesday night if they are able to win away against Athletic Club Bilbao.
A win would give Real Madrid an unassailable seven-point lead over FC Barcelona with just two matches left in the season. Should Barcelona fail to win their home game against Malaga, a draw would be enough to give Madrid the title, Xinhua reported.
Athletic are without suspended duo Ander Herrera and Ander Iturraspe, through suspension, while Angel De Maria is out for the same reason for Madrid.
Barcelona play at home against Malaga in what is a vital game for the visitors, who are level on points with third placed Valencia and aiming to qualify directly for the Champions League.
It promises to be an emotional night as the fans in the Camp Nou give their thanks to Pep Guardiola, who will leave his post as coach at the end of the season.
