Tightest La Liga in 17 years

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 453

The difference between top and bottom place is 29 points. This is the shortest point margin there has been since 2002-2003, which shows how the big and small teams have drifted apart.

Over time, the teams that tend to be at the bottom of the table have achieved worse results than those that win the league and qualify for Europe. This is evident from the data.

A study for 'AS', checked by ProFootballDB makes it clear that the current distance between top and bottom of the table hasn't been as tight since the 2002-2003 season. The conclusion is clear: this league is the closest it has been in 17 years.

Barcelona are currently top with 40 points, whereas Espanyol are bottom with 11. In 2003, Real Sociedad were top with 43 points, while Recreativo de Huelva were bottom with 14.

In fact, things are also much more contested when you look at the top of the table. 9 points separate the top 6, when 17 years ago it was 13. The same can be said about the relegation zone: 6 points separated the 3 bottom sides, and now 4 do.
