The defeat of Atletico Madrid in today's match revived the hopes of Real Madrid and Barcelona to reduce the difference through the same stage, as Real Madrid face Valladolid later today, and Barcelona meet Cadiz tomorrow.
Although Atletico Madrid has a postponed match, their stumbling today could significantly affect their chances of winning the title, given the remaining match schedule, which includes collisions with Real Madrid and Barcelona.
