Barcelona, Madrid limping toward inevitable finish in Spain


Associated Press

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona and Real Madrid are both limping toward that appears to be an inevitable Spanish league title going to the Catalan club. Barcelona holds an 11-point advantage over last year’s champions. That almost insurmountable difference appears to be behind a string of poor performances from Spain’s traditional powerhouses. They both lost to modest rivals this week and on Saturday will once again face opponents with much more to play for. Barcelona hosts a Real Betis team that is fighting to enter the top four spots that earn Champions League berths. Madrid welcomes an Almeria side that is trying to avoid relegation.
