Last week's results gave Barcelona a glimmer of hope in their title run. Will that be enough to motivate a surge to the top? See which games will be key in La Liga this weekend.

There are thirteen games left to be played in the ongoing La Liga season, and every point will count to determine the winner with 39 points up for grabs for all teams involved in the Spanish competition.

Real Madrid and Girona hold the two top spots in the tournament, but recent developments have seen their advantage over Barcelona being reduced. Last week's games saw both Los Blancos and the Catalan side dropping points, which were combined with a win for Barcelona that saw them get two points behind Girona. Now, this week's games will give us a better idea on where each team stands and their real chances of ending the season as champions.

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 25 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 and Mallorca, two teams that are three and six points away from the Andalucian side.

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

Top games to watch 

Barcelona vs Getafe - The Blaugrana have found a much-needed boost since Xavi's announcement regarding his exit from the team this summer, and now they could finish the weekend in second place if they can win this tie and Girona drop points. Facing them will be Getafe, a team that has claimed five points out of their last nine in dispute and who still keep their European dream alive. Nonetheless, to keep their hopes up, they need to beat the Catalans at Montjuic Stadium this weekend.

Real Madrid vs Sevilla - The league leaders return to the Bernabeu after a hectic week, which saw them make headlines due to the alleged deal with Kylian Mbappé. Now, Ancelotti's men will face a struggling Sevilla, who have much ground to cover in their battle to avoid relegation, which may not be as easy as expected in this clash since they have only won twice on the road this season. Additionally, this game will mark Sergio Ramos' first visit to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium following his shocking departure in 2021. Will we see another epic performance by the center back at the place he called home for over 16 years?

Girona vs Rayo Vallecano - The team from Catalunya remains the top threat for Real Madrid in the title race, but their fire seems to be burning out in recent weeks. Despite that, the team led by Michel will try to end a three-game run without a win when they host Rayo Vallecano, one of the teams with the worst form in La Liga, and who have lost four out of their last six fixtures in the Spanish top-flight.
