Alonso: Atletico Madrid Can Win La Liga
Former Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso believes arch-rivals Atletico can win La Liga this season.
Both Barcelona and Atletico are level on points in the league, with Madrid a point behind in third, with four games to go.
And Alonso who is preparing to face Diego Simeone’s in the last four of the UCL, thinks they are in a good position to win the liga.
“The league has been exciting,” Alonso said.
“The top three teams are so strong, but Atletico have a good chance to win it.
“They will be treating every game they have left as a final.”
Atletico edged Athletic Bilbao 1-0 on Wednesday to maintain the pressure on Barca, who dismantled Deportivo La Coruna 8-0.
Saturday will see Atletico host Malaga, which is followed by matches against Rayo Vallecano, Levante and Celta Vigo.
