Granada sit in 15th with 38 points while Almeria sit right behind them with 36. Therefore, if the visitors win, they jump ahead by a single point. Both clubs can play the game decently on offense, but their defenses are too weak. With that said, this one is up in the air.

Prediction: Granada 2, Almeria 1

4. Athletic Bilbao vs. Real Sociedad

Bilbao has guaranteed fourth place, but if they lose at home to Real Sociedad and Sevilla lose at Getafe, Sociedad jump up into fifth by one point. Both sets up clubs boast a lot of talent, but are susceptible to the counter and do play with fear when opponents show class and bravery.

Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 3, Real Sociedad 1

3. Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid

Real Madrid tied at home to Valencia last weekend then tied 1-1 at Real Valladolid, thus, all but ruining their chances of winning the league title. Now, they travel to Celta Vigo in a game they desperately have to win while hoping that Barca and Atletico Madrid slip up to regain a chance.

Prediction: Celta Vigo 1, Real Madrid 2

2. Elche vs. Barcelona

Elche is a club that almost deservedly tied at Atletico Madrid some weeks ago before succumbing to defeat. Barcelona shockingly dropped two points in front of their own fans against Getafe last weekend. Now, both teams need to win for different reasons, but the visitors are highly favored.

Prediction: Elche 1, Barcelona 3

1. Atletico Madrid vs. Malaga

Atletico Madrid lost 2-0 at Levante in a game where they could have won with a bit more effort and concentration. Now, they have to defeat a Malaga side who are in the middle of the pack with a point to prove, which means this will not be an easy three points at home. If Atletico want to win the title, they should win this game as they visit Barcelona on the final day next week.

Prediciton: Atletico Madrid 2, Malaga 0
