It's been a fantastic La Liga season to date with plenty of surprises and exciting matches. Few could predict back in August that Atletico Madrid would be leading the race with six games to play.
Likewise, Athletic Bilbao sitting six points clear in a Champions League position after finishing 12th last year. Then, there is Real Betis currently propping up the table, when they were in the Europa League places last time out.
It's what makes the Spanish league so entertaining and is further proof that there is more to the division than just the Clasico duopoly.
Now the games can make a real difference as we enter the critical period of the campaign. These are the six most crucial matches left in the La Liga season and how I believe they will pan out.
