With El Clásico right around the corner, Real Madrid and Barcelona enter a crucial week with their title hopes on the line. Follow all games with this guide.

One more weekend will bring fans closer to knowing the name of the winner in La Liga, and there will be crucial games taking place this week that could have a major effect on who comes out on top after all matches have been played, especially after last week's break for the Copa del Rey final.

As things stand, Real Madrid have managed to survive injury issues, complicated moments on and off the pitch, and even an unexpected difficulty to beat one of their major rivals. With this in mind, the club still owns an eight-point lead over Barcelona, but this week's matches could have a major influence in the outcome of the tournament, especially with a couple of big games taking place next week.

Meanwhile, the battle for the second place continues in full gear, with Barcelona finally being able to edge Girona by two points. The Blaugrana's revival has seen them go unbeaten since February, and this week's game will also represent a challenge for Xavi Hernández's crew since they will get to face one of the teams involved in the battle for relegation.

Speaking of which, things at the bottom between Celta and Cádiz are getting tighter with each passing week. Los Gaditanos are now three points away from leaving the drop zone, but this week's matches could change for both clubs. Meanwhile, Granada and Almería seem destined to play in the Segunda División next season.

Let us guide you through the upcoming weekend in La Liga.

Top games to watch 

Atlético Madrid vs Girona - Los Colchoneros enter this game fresh off their 2-1 win in the Champions League, and while they may be inclined to rest some of their usual starters, facing and beating Girona could get them closer to the third-best team in La Liga. On the other side, a win for Girona would put pressure on Barcelona, as they would momentarily leapfrog them in the race for second, while also providing them a second win in a row, something that has not come easy for them in recent weeks.

Cádiz vs Barcelona - The Blaugrana side make it to the South of Spain to face Cádiz, where they have held some classic matches in recent years. Xavi's men will want to keep the good times rolling, especially in case of a loss by Real Madrid that could see them closing in on the league leaders. Speaking about the hosts, this game could be key for their hopes to avoid relegation, although such a victory may be easier said than done, since Cádiz have only beaten Barcelona once at their own ground since 1992.
