La Liga headlines, stats, and other facts

Success for all of Spain's biggest sides: It was a good day at the office for Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona, as all three teams won their respective fixtures. In fact, Los Blancos, Los Rojiblancos, and the Blaugrana have won their last three games - something that hasn't happened in three years.

Sharp-shooting Real Betis: They might have failed to win this weekend, but Real Betis have something that no other team in La Liga can boast - a clear knack from scoring from outside the box, as this stat shows:

Top La Liga matches: March 11 - March 14, 2022

Atletico Madrid vs Cadiz: Having now won three on the spin, Atletico Madrid will be looking to make it four straight league wins as they aim to secure a top four berth. Although Real Betis have hit a skid, they're still just two points away in fifth spot meaning that any slip-ups for Diego Simeone's side could be costly.

Barcelona vs Osasuna: The Blaugrana have now broken into the top four after experiencing a resurgence in form lately, and now the Catalan powerhouse will turn their attention towards ensuring they can secure Champions League football for next season. Following their midweek exploits against Turkish outfit Galatasaray, Xavi's squad will need to refocus in order to make sure they can get the job down this weekend and stay ahead of Atleti in the league standings.

Mallorca vs Real Madrid: Given Real Madrid's impressive form, this game couldn't come at a worse time for struggling Mallorca, who have lost their last four games and are creeping dangerously close to the drop zone. As things stand, Carlo Ancelotti's team boast an eight point lead over the chasing pack and one shouldn't be surprised if the highly decorated Italian tactician rotates his squad for this game - especially as it looks (on paper at least) to be a straightforward three points for the league leaders.
