The La Liga title race could go down to the final day of the season after taking another twist on Tuesday night. Barcelona failed to defeat Levante in a game many experts believed they would win. Three times during the 90 minutes, Barcelona were pegged back as the game ended 3-3. La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid play on Wednesday night against Real Sociedad in a difficult fixture. A loss or draw by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night and a Real Madrid win on Thursday, and Zinedine Zidane’s team will go top of the La Liga table.

Los Blancos head to the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes to face off with Granada. Los Rojiblancos won’t be pushovers. They defeated Barcelona 2-1 at Camp Nou just two weeks ago. Real Madrid will need to be at their best when playing Los Rojiblancos or they will drop points once more.

Atletico Madrid have the title in their hands. They must simply win their final three games to lift the La Liga trophy. However, based on their up and down form, anything can happen in the final three matches.

Real Madrid have won 11 straight matches in La Liga. Zidane will fancy the team’s chances of winning once more. They won the reverse fixture at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium against Granada. Casemiro and Karim Benzema scored in the second half to lead Real Madrid to victory. Real Madrid scored 2.0 goals or more in each of the last six matches against Granada. Will they win again and score 2.0 or more goals?

The winger could leave the club in the summer following an impasse with his contract. Defender Dani Carvajal is ruled out of the game with a hamstring injury.
