But in the end they succeeded and added the three points that raised the difference with the team to ten real Madrid.

The whites then had a very complicated in the field of Betis. In a vibrant match they did not go beyond a tie, so the difference was definitely nine points. Two days ago, Barcelona could have left it in ten if they had taken advantage of the loss of the whites against Atlético, but Xavi’s men surprisingly lost in the clash against Almería.
