The Royal Club leads the league standings, one point behind its arch-rivals and champions, the past two seasons. There are three games left for Al-Asimah Club, compared to two games for the Catalan club.
Real needs two wins from the remaining matches, the first of which is Monday against his host Granada in the thirty-sixth stage, to resolve the league regardless of Barcelona’s results, and win the League title for the first time since 2017, and strengthen his record in the championship.
“We are not under pressure (…) pressure is normal, and also mandatory. But I do not think there is pressure” on this period of the season, Zidane told a news conference on the eve of the Granada match.
He continued, “This last week (the season closes in Spain on July 19), and we have three games left to play, and all our energy must now be focused on the next match.”
“Now we are not doing any calculation. We only think about playing games, we are only focusing on tomorrow’s game.”
The Royal Club has achieved perfect results since the resumption of the league competition last June after being suspended for nearly three months due to the emerging Corona virus. Real scored eight wins in eight games since his return, in a positive series that allowed him to snatch the lead from Barcelona, who wasted points from three draws out of its nine matches in the same period.
