Clear leaders Barcelona are aiming to remain on track for the title in a LaLiga Santander weekend full of derby clashes with an impact at both the top and bottom of the table.
Barcelona will be even more confident after last Sunday’s El Clasico victory over Real Madrid, when they return to action against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday afternoon.
19th placed Rayo really need a boost after five straight LaLiga Santander defeats; the last time they picked up a point at the Camp Nou was back in 2001.
Second placed Atletico de Madrid welcome Spanish capital rivals Leganes to the Wanda Metropolitano for Saturday afternoon’s derby clash.
The close neighbours drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, although Diego Simeone’s men really need all three points to keep up the pressure on Barça
