Barcelona can secure La Liga title before May

Barcelona could have wrapped up the La Liga title by May if they win their next four league games.

Late goals from Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi secured a 2-0 home win over Atletico Madrid at the weekend, giving Ernesto Valverde's side an 11-point lead of Diego Simeone's second place side.

The Catalans are virtually assured of a second successive title, however they can be mathematically sure if they continue their impressive winning form in the coming weeks.

That would give Barcelona three games at the end of the season to rest and rotate players to balance a potential Champions League semi final and the Copa del Rey final on May 25th.
