With the remaining four games in the 2020/21 La Liga season, Barcelona is one of four teams still participating with a chance for the title.
Only six points separate Atletico Madrid at the top of Sevilla in fourth place, although this difference will be up to three if the Andalusians win their game over Atletico, Barca and Real Madrid.
Everyone will believe that at this moment they have a realistic chance for the title, although given the season that Barça has endured, it is strange that they are still in the conversation.
Sevilla is also a surprise candidate, but Julen Lopetegui had his side to play great throughout the season.
Ronald Koeman’s team was well in pace at the beginning of the campaign and by the 10th game had endured its worst start to the season in more than three decades.
Making them real contenders for the title was nothing more than magnificent and Lionel Messi took the lead.
For a player determined to leave a few months ago, the ultra-professionalism he has shown since then deserves a reward.
However, silverware is not only gained by mood, so Messi and Co. will have to work for every point from now on.
If the Catalans find themselves at the top of the tree at the end of this season, it will certainly be Argentina’s greatest achievement ever.
