We are not quite halfway through the La Liga schedule, but already 2013 has given us a few surprises.
Malaga have started the new year in very disappointing form, but they will have no time to dwell on their dropped points with mighty Barcelona coming to town next weekend.
La Blaugrana started right where they left off by dominating Espanyol in the local derby, while their rivals won a very tough match against Real Sociedad thanks to some inspired play from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Those three matches were a great way to start the new year, but the second half of the season has many more vital games that will have a great impact on how the standings look when all the dust has settled.
Let's take a look at the 10 biggest matches remaining on the league schedule and discuss why every fan of Spanish football would be wise to tune in.
Please let us know which matches you are most looking forward to, even if they were not listed here.
