Malaga vs. Real Madrid

Malaga vs. Real Madrid”

Michel, a lifelong Real Madrid fan who played at the Santiago Bernabeu for 14 years, described himself as "much more of a Madridista" than Jorge Valdano - the former Madrid man who led Tenerife to consecutive final-day wins over the capital club to hand Barcelona the title in 1992 and 1993.

Since then Barcelona have dominated La Liga, winning it three times in the last four attempts, while Atletico Madrid were crowned champions in 2014. "I have to respect the competition and always go out to win".

Holders Barcelona can still win the title, of course, if they beat Eibar and Real lose on Sunday.

Lionel Messi is the top scorer this season in the big five European leagues alongside Edinson Cavani (35).

"It is now time to rest up, we know that we haven't won anything yet and that there is still a game to go".

Neymar has won nine trophies since his controversial transfer to the Spanish giants, including the UEFA Champions League crown and two La Liga medals.

Seventh place could also give a place in Europe, but only if Barcelona defeat Alaves in the Cup final, so whichever of the three misses out is in for a nervous week of waiting to know whether their summer holidays will be cut short.

Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad are still fighting for the two Europa League spots, with Villarreal and Athletic ahead and depending on themselves over the weekend.

Villarreal travel to Valencia while Real Sociedad play at Celta.

Granada, Osasuna, and Sporting Gijon have already been relegated.

Who will win the battle for the Premier League golden boot? The Colombian worldwide missed the trip to Galicia amid speculation linking him with Manchester United but could be ready to return to action for the final league game against Malaga on Sunday (21 May).

Celta players loudly complained, and there were more complaints a few moments later when Ronaldo fell inside the other box in an apparent flop - but was not shown a yellow card that would have suspended him from the final round.

"Brazil are doing very good. More than very good", Mourinho added. "I really hope that this dream comes true". Real Madrid's iconic boss has been described as "lucky" by his detractors, but the Frenchman is on the verge of history - with Madrid's next 180 minutes about to decide his destiny.

The former Santos star has scored 19 goals and assisted a further 25 strikes for his colleagues in 43 games this season.
