Getafe will look to jump out of the relegation zone when they host Malaga this weekend in a must-win. Their opponents will be without influential winger Nordin Amrabat who was dismissed after insulting the referee in a match against Villarreal. The hosts are tough to beat at home, so they will need their fans to push them through.

Prediction: Getafe 1, Malaga 1

The yellow submarines are tough at home which is exactly what needs to continue against the reigning champions Barcelona. The field seems narrower than most with the fans right there screaming throughout the 90 minutes. Barcelona will struggle to find their rhythm against a disciplined home side.

Prediction: Villarreal 1, Barcelona 2

This will be a game to see as Atletico will be facing one of their toughest opponents in the race to their first title in years. The shots are very tough on their own ground which will only make things harder for the capital club. This one is up in the air.

Prediction: Valencia 1, Atletico Madrid 2

This is clearly the game of the week since the hosts are only three points ahead of their counterparts in fourth place and the last chance to play in the Champions League. This one is expected to be tightly contested with a few extra physical challenges set in mind to send a clear message -- these three points are much-needed.

Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 2, Sevilla 3
