Rakitic got his goal tonight

FC Barcelona snuck past ten-man Real Betis. They retook their position at the top of La Liga.

This was a Saturday when all three of Spain’s biggest sides had found themselves at the summit. Brilliant goals from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez ensured that the defending champions will remain there for now after Real Betis vs FC Barcelona encounter.

Two games remain and Luis Enrique knows that two victories will hand him back-to-back titles. However, their faltering energy levels and performances imply that is far from a foregone conclusion.

Heiko Westermann gave Barca a massive helping hand when he got himself sent off in the first half. But it was far from the convincing wins that the Nou Camp club were getting just earlier this season.

A couple more of them and they won’t care, but this title race feels not only like it will go to the wire but that there may also be one final twist.

And so it was that, even after 36 games each, the top three sides in La Liga still remain virtually inseparable.

254 points amassed, but only a single one to keep them apart.

Two games each remain and it feels completely possible, even likely, that all three win both – which would see this title decided on head-to-head record.

Barcelona have a derby with Espanyol just next week before travelling to Granada on the final day. Theoretically, and before even taking into account the Champions League distractions for the other two teams, that is the easiest run-in of any title challenger.
