Real win 4-0 against Getafe | Yahoo

Ronaldo notched his 47th, 48th, and 49th goals of the season either side of half-time, with Karim Benzama completing the scoring seconds after coming onto the pitch as a substitute - as a typically assured Real ensured that arch-rivals Barcelona’s hands stay off the Liga trophy for a few more hours.

A point for the title | FCBarcelona

FC Barcelona travel tonight to the Ciutat de València where one point will be enough to mathematically clinch the club’s 21st league championship. Like six years ago, Barça and Rijkaard visited Levante with the aim of becoming league champions. They got exactly what they wanted. Guardiola’s side goes to the same venue tonight seeking to repeat history. A win or a draw would be enough to guarantee that Barça are league champions for the third time in a row, something that only the Dream Team under Johan Cruyff has ever managed to do before (they went on to win four in a row). Today could be as great a day as that memorable May 14, 2005.

6 Leagues away from Camp Nou | FCBarcelona

If Barça win the league title tonight, it will not be the first time they have won away from the Camp Nou. They first won on the road in 1928/29 at Arenas de Getxo, and the last time was 2004/05 also at Levante. So this could be the seventh time FC Barcelona have secured the league away from home. The Ciutat de València also brings back fond memories, as it was here that the first Liga of the Rijkaard era was won.

 

 

Whole squad to Levante | FCBarcelona

With Barça potentially about to win the league title, Josep Guardiola, as always when there is a trophy in sight, has called on his full squad and coaching staff to make the journey to Valencia. Everybody will be at Levante. Just one point would be enough to win the third league title in a row, and that is assuming Madrid win their game on Tuesday. So the manager would like everybody to be there to enjoy the special moment.
