Does the League should be played through a play-off? Would it be more competitive and would there be options for other teams? Good question, and perhaps a good option for the duopoly currently managed by Barcelona and Real Madrid, only winners in the last ten years and true monopolizers of the competition, both economically and competitively. Angel María Villar now contemplates what seemed crazy that we anticipated two months ago in Colgados por el Fútbol, who wants to avoid dominance at all costs of the two greats by copying the Mexican league system, where the top eight of the regular league play double-game playoffs giving excitement.
If we lay hold on history, League 86-87 already used this old formula. The year in which Valencia was in the Second Division, The league championship consisted of 38 days and at the end of these, a double-match league was chosen among the top six to decide the title, although that yes keeping the score of the regular League ( the same was done for the descent).
According to the most veterans, that was a failure, but nevertheless, today things could be different, especially if the play-off was done under the method that basketball usually uses. Double match, or triple if you want, with the field advantage for the best classified it could be the alternative to that outdated system of the season 86-87.
Possibly, the great ones will not want to open the competition, but this would gain competitiveness and excitement, something that certainly, has been lacking in recent years. What is your opinion? To give more data, in Mexico it is played like this, a similar system is used in Belgium, and even in the Dutch Eredivisie the last place in the Europa League is decided like this. Of course you don't have to go very far, in second, third place of promotion uses the formula. You can think, definitely.
