Barcelona will travel to La Rosaleda stadium as they face off against Malaga. The Catalans are clear favourites going into the encounter, however, Malaga will be seeking to remain above the relegation zone and move up the log standings.
The Madrid derby takes centre stage on Saturday, April 8, at the Bernabeu. With Real Madrid currently 10 points ahead of Atletico on the log standings, Los Blancos will want to stretch their lead as Barcelona are just two points behind Zinedine Zidane’s team.
Malaga v Barcelona (La Liga)
League rankings: Malaga 15th & Barcelona 2nd
Useful facts: Another relatively straightforward result for Luis Enrique’s men should see them overcome a Malaga team that has beaten them only once in their last six encounters and that’s winless in six. With five wins from their last six, Barcelona will consider this to be an easy hurdle in their efforts to keep pace in the title race.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (La Liga)
League rankings: Real Madrid 1st & Atletico Madrid 3rd
Useful facts: Easily the biggest match of the weekend. A repeat of last season’s Champions League final sees the Madrid rivalry reignite. Both teams are currently on a four-match winning streak and it appears to be a very close call. But it’s quite surprising to see that Atletico only won one of their last six against Ronaldo and Co. The last game at the Vicente Calderon saw Ronaldo net a hat-trick in a devastating defeat and with Real undefeated in their last 20 at home, it’s difficult to see them not overcoming this massive hurdle in their title race.
Fani Madida: I think Atletico will win.
