I think that’s true: if they catch them it will ranks as one of the great comebacks. They’ve already done fantastically well to get this close but as you say (or hint) it’s really down to Barcelona. If they recapture theif form from the first half of the season there will be no stopping them.

Will they? That’s much harder to predict. If they do, it’ll be the greatest comeback in the history of the Spanish league (or the greatest debacle, depending on your point of view)

The truth is, Real aren’t really playing all that well, but are grinding out results and their defence is much surer than 3 months ago. Barcelona on the other hand played some superb football in the first half of the season and may now be suffering psychologically as they can’t keep that level of performance up (naturally). They’re still odds-on favourites to take the title, however.
