This is a good game to catch as the home side are expected to face some trouble from a brave side that will be able to attack and score. Both sets of players are fast, strong and determined to grab all three points. However, the home side will be pushed by their fans to the final whistle.

Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 2, Malaga 1

4. Getafe vs. Atletico Madrid

This is a rather small Madrid derby as both sides reside in the Spanish capital. This does not mean that pride will not be at stake, as it certainly will be. The home side is in the bottom three, so defeating the top side in La Liga in a derby will be the icing on the cake.

Prediction: Getafe 1, Atletico Madrid 2

3. Real Madrid vs. Almeria

Real Madrid will once again be without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo when they host Almeria in front of their home fans. Last week, the team won 4-0 at Real Sociedad to stay near the top to breathe down Atletico Madrid's and Barca's necks. Now, a win over this side will keep them there, and they are expected to grab all the points.

Prediction: Real Madrid 4, Almeria 0

2. Granada vs. Barcelona

This should be an easy win for Barcelona as they will look to bounce back from their Champions League exit against Atletico Madrid this past Wednesday. With a win here, they will stay right behind Madrid before facing Real Madrid next week in the Copa Del Rey final.

Prediction: Granada 1, Barcelona 3

1. Real Betis vs. Sevilla

This is clearly the game to watch this weekend as it is one of the most heated derbies in the region. Not only are playing for pride, but Betis still remember their Round of 32 exit to their local rivals in the Europa League.

Prediction: Real Betis 2, Sevilla 1
