Spain: La Liga Weekend Preview

All eyes will be on Real Madrid's visit to Real Valladolid to see how they react to yet another Champions League disappointment. On paper, Madrid could barely have picked better opponents to face after last night's blow. Valladolid have taken just four points - all from draws - from their 10 games in 2010 and last Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Athletic Bilbao left them in 18th place and five points adrift of 17th-placed Real Zaragoza and safety. Barca had held top spot since beating Madrid in November but they dropped to second place after being held 2-2 at Almeria last Saturday. Pep Guardiola's reigning champions now face a potentially tough match on Sunday as they play host third-placed Valencia.
