La Liga schedule will have matches almost everyday

The competition will have matches almost every day, with a minimum of three days between matchdays. And there are still lots of interesting scenarios to figure out. Barcelona and Real Madrid are separated by just two points on top of the table and, with 11 rounds to play, the fight for the title is exclusive for these two teams.

Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Getafe, Atlético Madrid, and Valencia have just 5 points separating them, and this set of teams will discuss the two remaining spots for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

On the bottom of the table, Espanyol has a hard task ahead to maintain their place in the main Spanish Football Championship, as the Catalunya team will try to recover a 6-point disadvantage for Celta Vigo, the first team ahead of the relegation zone.
