The Spanish top-flight returns to action with all eyes set on Real Madrid, Girona, and Barcelona. Keep

There are fourteen games left to be played in the ongoing La Liga season, and every point will count to determine the winner despite Real Madrid's win against Girona last week.

Both Los Blancos and the Catalan side remain as the top contenders to win the title, considering that there are only five points between them (six if you consider the tiebreaker that favors Real Madrid). Elsewhere, Barcelona are trailing Los Merengues by ten points, making their chances of success rather slim despite their efforts to climb back and even with their constant complaints about biased refereeing.

On another note, the battle to avoid relegation seems to have a top candidate, as Almería have failed to win a single game despite having 24 chances to do so. Right now, Cádiz seem as the only team that could have a chance to save themselves, but they will have to go toe-to-toe with Celta, Mallorca, and even Sevilla.

Here are the main things to keep in mind ahead of this weekend's matches.

Top games to watch 

Celta de Vigo vs Barcelona - The Blaugrana need to get their hands on as many points as possible, and battling Celta should give them a shot at three easy points. Nonetheless, the team's shaky form on the pitch has also caused issues away from it, with prominent figures as their president or their sporting director making inflamatory remarks about their form. Xavi and his men will try to leave it all behind as they gear up to face a team battling to avoid relegation, which will give the hosts enough fire to fight for their life in front of one of the most popular teams in the globe.

Rayo Vallecano vs Real Madrid - The league leaders go to Vallecas this weekend, where they have created some great memories. Los Merengues have claimed seven wins in their most recent ten trips to that stadium, but their last match there concluded 3-2 for the hosts. Now, with Rayo involved in the battle to escape relegation, the game could be a bit tricky for Ancelotti's men, mainly because they will not have many players around due to injury.

Athletic Club vs Girona - The team from Catalunya remains the top threat for Real Madrid in the title race, and they will get to put an end to this weekend's action against Athletic Club, a team fighting to break into the top four and with quite a few options to do that. The game will be equally crucial for both, as Athletic reach this  clash having won five out of the last nine points they have played for. On the other hand, Girona dropped a big chance to keep their title hopes alive when they lost to Real Madrid. All things considered, this should be a fitting end to Matchday 25 and a good way to see if Girona can bounce back from a heart-breaking loss.
