Week 34 in La Liga brings us some decent matches which are must-wins for two of the top three sides, as Real Madrid's match at Valladolid has been postponed due to their Champions League schedule. Check out their matches along with two others as teams are beginning to fight for meaningful places.
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 a horrendous 3-0 loss at Bilbao last week, things do not get any easier as Malaga look to host and defeat a sturdy Villarreal side who scored a last-minute winner. This will be a battle of skill, speed and strength.
Prediction: Malaga 1, Villarreal 1
After winning last week away to stay top of the league. Atletico cannot underestimate an Elche side who made Valencia sweat at the Mestalla. They have all the tools to win this one, so there shouldn't be any problems as long as they take it seriously.
Prediction: Atletico Madrid 3, Elche 0
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.
Prediction: Barcelona 3, Bilbao 1
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
