There are just three weeks left in the 2013/14 La Liga season. Time sure does fly when you're having fun, and thanks to the incredible title race this season, we've been having a lot of fun.
Atlético Madrid continue their quest for a league title, needing just two wins from their final three matches. Los Colchoneros shocked more than a few people on Wednesday, defeating Chelsea and setting up a Derbi madrileño in the Champions League final, and they can no return their focus to the league before trying to win the European Cup for the first time. Atléti travels to face Levante, a team that did manage to take points off Barcelona at the Estadi Ciutat de València.
Athletic Bilbao's win over Sevilla last week have them one win from securing fourth place. In their way is Rayo Vallecano, a team unbeaten in their last four matches. Sevilla will have to beat Villareal and hope Athletic fall in order to keep their hopes of snatching fourth place alive.
In the relegation battle, just two spots remain after Real Betis were officially dropped to the second division last week. Almeria and Real Valladolid desperately need wins to try and stay alive, while Osasuna and Getafe could take huge steps towards safety in their can secure three points.
Every team above 13th in the table is now mathematically guaranteed to remain in La Liga for next season, leaving six teams who could find themselves in the drop zone when the season comes to a close.
