The most recent round of fixtures in Spain saw Real Madrid lose top spot after a defeat away to Real Betis, and it sounds like Barca are ready to claim the title.

According to a report from Sport, if La Liga is suspended to the point where it doesn’t finish, then Barca will claim the title because they were top of the league when the matches stopped.

It would be a tough one for Real Madrid to take, especially when you consider they won the Clasico to take top spot just a couple of weeks ago. Real would also hold the advantage if they were level on points, so that result against Betis could haunt them for years to come.
