The last league title, an example for the rojiblancos

This Sunday’s defeat against him Seville in it Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán (1-0) puts the league leader, the

Atlético de Madrid in a complicated situation. The 11-point income he once had has vanished. Pessimism has settled in the environment of the mattress team regarding the prospects for the fight for this title.

In it Athletic they do not forget that he has only added the last 16 of the last 30 points he has had at stake. However, there is a precedent that makes mattresses think that it is possible.

Although the unquestionable loss of points in the last two months heralds a complicated scenario for Atlético to win the championship, the truth is that it has rarely been seen in a similar position at this point in time. League, and that in the year of his last title, the 2013-14 season, he was in a tighter situation even than the current one.

On matchday 29 of that championship, the Athletic was second, equaled 70 points with the Real Madrid, and on the following day a white stumble against precisely the Seville put him in front of the championship.

He reached the penultimate day with four points over him Barcelona, but failed to sentence by drawing 1-1 against him Malaga in it Vicente Calderón, and ended up playing the title on a final day in the Camp Nou with the 1-1 draw that the tournament gave him. An example that the championship can still take many turns.
