If Madrid wins, Solari's team could get into the fight for the title. The Whites would advance Atlético and they would be second in the standings with one point more than the Atlético. In addition, they would be five points away from Barcelona while waiting for the match between Valverde and Athletic.
In case of a tie, the great beneficiary would be Barcelona. Atlético would maintain the two points of difference over Madrid, while the Catalans would have the opportunity to extend their advantage over both. They could be placed eight points above the Athletic one and with 10 of advantage over the ones of Solari.
What happens in the Metropolitan will mark the fight for the title. A victory for Atlético could take almost permanently to Madrid. The Whites would stay five points away from the rojiblancos and could be 11 from Barcelona, as long as Valverde's team won at San Mamés Athletic.
