Top matches to watch in La Liga on February 12-15, 2021

  • Granada vs Atletico Madrid: Atletico Madrid will look to return to winning ways when they travel to Granada on Saturday, February 13. However, Diego Simeone's men are not expected to have an easy ride with the opponent they face also chasing a Europa League spot.
