Check out our round preview, as we list the three most interesting games to watch from the upcoming La Liga action.

Spanish La Liga continues in midweek, as we have the 35th Gameweek on the schedule from Tuesday to Friday.

If you’re wondering which games to watch from the upcoming action in top-flight Spanish football, check out our top three suggestions below.

Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid

Celta Vigo will host Atletico Madrid to the Balaidos Stadium tomorrow evening at 22:00 (CET).

The Colchoneros will have the opportunity to book their place in the Champions League next season if they win on Tuesday and the clash between Getafe and Villarreal ends without a winner the next evening.

Celta, on the other hand, are yet to secure their place in top-flight Spanish football for at least another year. They are on the right path though, as they have a six-point advantage over Mallorca in the safe zone.

Barcelona vs Espanyol

Barcelona welcome city rivals Espanyol in what might be the last Catalan Derby for at least 12 months.

The reigning champions are four points adrift of league leaders Real Madrid, with only four games to go until the end of the season. They cannot afford to drop points again, in order to stay alive in their bid for a third successive La Liga crown.

The Blaugrana will have an opportunity to send their cross-town rivals to the Second Division with a win on Wednesday evening.

They could finally get their revenge for Raul Tamudo’s last-minute equalizer in the 37th round of the 2006-07 La Liga campaign, which handed the title to Real Madrid 13 years ago.

Real Madrid vs Alaves

Real Madrid will be looking to continue their perfect record since the restart of La Liga when they host Alaves in the last game of Round 34, on Friday evening.

The Whites have won all seven games in the past three weeks, securing a four-point advantage over Barcelona on the top of the table.

A victory over Alaves will see them making a major step towards the title, which would be their record 34th in the history of the Spanish Championship.
