You're a fool if you think it's already over. There's so many variables and what ifs that unfold during the season and not to mention Real Madrid and Barcelona still play two league games against each other. If Barcelona goes on a 2 game winless streak than Real Madrid is easily back in the race.

You're ****ing joking, right? You don't think they can make that difference up in about 30+ games?

Discussing La Liga is like discussing the Scottish Premier league when Rangers was still in it.

Its ridiculous to think that 8 pts a few games into the season is insurmountable. Barcelona does not win every game. The Barcelona fanbase is beyond delusional.

Nah, i believe in my team. This is the year. We win all 3 titles and we do it in a dominant fashion.

Well neither does Real

8 points might not be a lot in EPL, but in La Liga is huge

for Gustavo who's bound to lose his starting spot.
well they are in a weak group in CL so they can easily rotate players so Javi, Shaqiri, Can, Muller, Mandzukic can get a lot of playing time

i see barca doing the same thing in CL in the group stages - Song, Thiago, Montoya, Tello, Cesc will play a lot

8 points in the EPL actually is pretty huge though I mean you figure Man U will drop around only 20 points a season so I mean if you are 8 behind them that's pretty huge. In La Liga tho yes it's magnified cus one of the big 2 will probably only drop like 15 points.

I'm not sure if you know this, but Chelsea and United don't play in La Liga.
