La Liga brings us some fun matches to watch in Week 35. Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have it tough while the battle for fourth place is also on the line. Read on to find out which showdowns will be more entertaining.
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
Real Madrid had a week off in La Liga action last week due to their demanding schedule. Now they resume duties against Osasuna at home in a game where they have to win to keep pace with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in the title race. This is a game that they should easily win.
Prediction: Real Madrid 4, Osasuna 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
