Barcelona could leapfrog Real Madrid at the top of La Liga

Lionel Messi

Bengaluru, February 22: Barcelona could leapfrog Real Madrid at the top of La Liga table in week 25 while the battle heats up at the bottom.

RC Celta's late equaliser at leaders Real Madrid last weekend allowed Barcelona to close within a point, and moved Celta out of the bottom three, again showing the unpredictability and competitiveness of this season's La Liga.

That means Barceloa could temporarily move two points clear at the top should they beat SD Eibar at home on Saturday.
