Olé! La Liga is Back


Spain’s La Liga is back this week, with games on every day of the week.

Matchday 28 (of 38) starts on Friday Australian time, with El Gran Derbi (Sevilla Derby) between Real Betis and Sevilla.

Most eyes, however, will be on the two giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid, with Barca (58 points) holding a two-point edge on Real Madrid (56) in a bid for a third-straight La Liga title and fifth in six seasons.

Real will need a slip-up from the Catalans as there are no more meetings between the two teams.

The other two Champions League spots feature a fascinating battle between four clubs within two points of each other.

At the moment Sevilla is in third (47 points), with Real Sociedad in fourth (46) and Getafe (46) and Atletico Madrid (45) currently in the Europa League spots of fifth and sixth.

Seventh place Valencia is not out of it either, currently on 42 points.

At the bottom of the table, Espanyol (20 points), Leganes (23) and Mallorca (25) are currently in the relegation zone, but Celta Vigo (26), Eibar (27) and even Valladolid (29) are not safe yet.
