    The La Liga season resumed in June, and the race for the title is as tight as ever. While the races in the Premier League and Bundesliga are over, Barcelona and Real Madrid are neck and neck in Spain. Real Madrid currently holds a two-point lead over Barca after beating Espanyol 1-0 on Sunday thanks to a goal from Casemiro. Barca has dropped points in two out of its last three games and could only draw Celta Vigo on Saturday, conceding a late free kick to Iago Aspas. 

    Here’s everything to know about the race for the trophy.

    Standings

    Barca has the two-point lead, which means a lot can change in just one match. There is still plenty of play remaining with 30 points up for grabs, and this race is likely to go deep into July.

    Remaining schedule

    Here’s a look at each team’s remaining matches. Real has the tougher schedule with three matches against the top seven while Barca has two. Barca has the easier slate, while Real has less days of rest. Advantage Barcelona?

    * These matches have confirmed dates, while the others are pending announcements from La Liga.

    Matchday 33: Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid (6/30); Real Madrid vs. Getafe (7/2)
    Matchday 34: Barcelona at Villarreal (7/5); Real Madrid at Athletic Bilbao (7/5)
    Matchday 35: Barcelona vs. Espanyol; Real Madrid vs. Alaves
    Matchday 36: Barcelona at Real Valladolid; Real Madrid at Granada
    Matchday 37: Barcelona vs. Osasuna; Real Madrid vs. Villarreal
    Matchday 38: Barcelona at Alaves; Real Madrid at Leganes

    What if they finish the season with the same amount of points?

    In most leagues, the first tiebreaker is goal differential. That isn’t the first tiebreaker in Spain, and that won’t come into play if the two are tied on points come season’s end. In La Liga, the first tiebreaker is head-to-head points, meaning the amount of points the teams earned against in each other this season in their two meetings.

    In their first match, Barca and Real drew 0-0. In their second meeting, Real won 2-0. That means in two matches, Real earned four points (a win and a draw) while Barca took one point (a draw and a loss).

    Because of this, if the two clubs finish the season tied on points, the title goes to Real Madrid.
