Madrid, Barca look to rally from European losses

MADRID — Real Madrid looks to rebound from its Champions League disappointment by putting itself in position to clinch the Spanish league title and further compound rival Barcelona's late-season collapse.

Madrid can clinch its record 32nd league crown on Sunday if it beats Sevilla and Barcelona loses at Rayo Vallecano. Madrid leads the three-time defending champions by seven points with four games to play.

The Spanish rivals both lost their Champions League semifinals, and Madrid will be looking to avoid any slip-up as it looks to secure its first league trophy in four years.

Racing Santander could be the first team to be relegated from the first division on Saturday.
