The Spanish La Liga season, just like most other leagues enters the final round this weekend with Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid going head to head for the title, very much in Diego Simeone’s side’s hands but with football, anything can happen.

Real Madrid would rue the late Luis Suarez strike against Osasuna that returned Atletico to the top after Nacho had fired Real Madrid in front, in all of these, Barcelona have turned their attention elsewhere as their league season ended with the late Celta Vigo strike at the Camp Nou last Sunday.

For Atletico, it’s everything to play for, should they be crowned champions, they will have lots of luck to thank as they missed many chances to pull clear and could have rounded off the title long ago before rivals gained grounds on their slip ups.

Real Madrid have their days of regrets too, dropping points on grounds they should be comfortable on and their ill fated champions league campaign also derailed their league form, special mention as well to the form and availability of Sergio Ramos who has missed so much games in the closing season.

Barcelona have said Lionel Messi will not be taking part in the final day game, but they want to ensure he hasn’t played his last game for Barcelona, the announcement on Friday that Sergio Aguero will join in the summer for two seasons is basically to keep the legend happy.

Lionel Messi’s contract extension will be the biggest news in the summer but there’s one hurdle to cross before then and that is basically down to Real Valladolid who host Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid against Unai Emery’s Villareal.

All games kick off at 17:00 hrs WAT and by the time the final whistle goes off across grounds and the season is brought to a close, tears of joy on either side of Madrid and sighs of despair for the nearly men, there will also be thoughts to the men that won’t return next season.

Anyone three from the pool of Huesca, Elche, Eibar and Real Valladolid can still be relegated, three points separate them and if Real Valladolid can beat the title chasing Atletico, what a story would that be for Ronaldo De Lima’s club.

Whatever happens, the season has taught us lots of lessons, it’s not done until it actually is, discipline is key and taking your chances when you can or regret them later, in the season where Messi was forced to play, Ramos needing some form of appeasing and a rejected Suarez doing the most elsewhere.
