Check out our preview of the final La Liga round of the season, where we list the three most interesting games to watch.

The 2019-20 La Liga campaign has come to the very end, as we have the final round of the season on the program this weekend.

The previous round saw Real Madrid officially being crowned champions for the 34th time in history, while Mallorca became the second team to be relegated from top-flight Spanish football this term.

With Barcelona, Atletico and Sevilla having booked their place in the Champions League, and Espanyol also suffering relegation, there is only two things to be decided in the 38th La Liga round: who will finish third from behind and who will play in the Europa League.

Here are the three games you should keep an eye on tomorrow evening:

Leganes vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid will make a short trip to neighbors Leganes in their first game as Spanish champions.

And while the Whites will enjoy themselves on the football ground, for the home side this is an “all or nothing” encounter.

Leganes is sitting in 18th, one point behind Celta Vigo and simply have to win this game in order to have a chance for survival.

Espanyol vs Celta Vigo

But even if Leganes win against Real Madrid, everything is in Celta Vigo’s hands, as the Sky Blues visit already-relegated Espanyol.

Victory would secure the survival for Oscar Garcia’s side, regardless of the result in the mini-Madrid derby.

Celta haven’t tasted the win in six games in a row, but Espanyol, on the other hand, has suffered defeat in their last eight outings in top-flight Spanish football.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad will be chasing victory at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, as they are trying to secure a place in the Europa League next season.

The Basque side is currently sitting in sixth place with 55 points, but even ninth-placed Granada could overtake them in the final round of the season.

They’ve managed to beat the Colchoneros in the reverse fixture back in September and the same outcome would definitely book Sociedad’s place in the group stages of the second-best European club competition.
