Valencia are coming off a remarkable Europa League semifinal berth, followed by a 2-1 triumph over Elche. This weekend, they are visiting a rather tough Osasuna side who can definitely hold their own. This will definitely be worth watching. Look for Pablo Alcacer to score for the visiting side.

Prediction: Osasuna 1, Valencia 2

After losing in the Copa del Rey Final to Real Madrid, this Barcelona side will be hunting for the La Liga title, and their opponents are none other than the high-flying Athletic Bilbao, who can give them a fight to the finish. This will be about possession, taking chances and leaving it all on the field.

If Bilbao lose and Sevilla wins vs. Granada at home this weekend, the gap between them between fourth and fifth is only three points. They still play one more time against each other next Sunday. If the Sevilla side wins, they are tied for fourth, which is the last UCL position. However, Granada just defeated Barcelona at home last week with a concentrated performance on the defensive end.

Prediction: Sevilla 2, Granada 1
