Key games will be held this weekend in the Spanish top-flight, including another edition of El Clásico and crucial battles with European competition spots on the line.

This could be a game-changing weekend in La Liga, with one of the most anticipated games taking place on Sunday and with the rest of the clubs still aiming to improve their positions prior to the end of the competition.

The game between Real Madrid and Barcelona will gather the most attention this weekend, but there will be other fixtures that will need fans to keep a close eye on them. While the two most popular teams in Spain lock horns on Sunday, their rivals will be trying to take advantage of their meeting to get closer to them and eventually add more drama to the final weeks of the season.

Girona, Atlético, and Athletic will extend their fight to finish between third and fifth place, while Real Sociedad, Valencia, and Betis seem set to fight for the next three spots. There are 21 points to fight for, but different issues will come in play before any of the teams mentioned can start planning their season with a European competition to play in.

When it comes to the relegation battle, 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 starting next summer.

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

Top games to watch 

Girona vs Cádiz - By now, Girona's chances of winning the title are pretty slim, but finishing the season on a decent note should be up for grabs, and to keep their options of a top-four finish open they will need to beat Cádiz this weekend. The team from the South of Spain needs points to keep the battle for relegation open, but this is not a game where they can be considered as favorites. The first match of the season between these teams ended 1-0 for Girona, and it seems that the hosts have everything in their favor to claim three more points here.

Deportivo Alavés vs Atlético Madrid - After crashing out of the Champions League, Los Colchoneros need to finish their performance in La Liga on a high note. While their title chances are still there, their performance this season does not make fans believe in their title hopes. Simeone's men won their previous fixture against Alavés this season (2-1), and considering that the hosts have lost four out of their last five, this should be a good chance for the red and white side to claim three useful points.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona - The final edition of El Clásico this season will see Los Merengues trying to seal the title by adding to their lead over the Blaugrana side when the game comes to an end. Los Blancos have won three in a row against their bitter rivals, including a 2-1 win in the first league match and a 4-1 victory in the Spanish Super Cup. Barcelona have nothing to lose and they could leave it all on the pitch to try and salvage their season with an epic comeback that starts with El Clásico, but it is safe to say that Los Blancos have the upper hand for this one.
