The La Liga title race has become as enthralling as ever at this very ending stage of the Spanish league 2016-17 season, with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona into complete loggerheads against each other.
While Barca have four matches remaining this season in the domestic league, Real have five to go. Both are on the same points at the moment, but Luis Enrique's Barcelona are on top of the table owing to their better goal difference.
Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid now face a stiff task on Saturday, April 29, against one of the big clubs in Spanish football, Valencia. Barca, on the other hand, take on Espanyol.
Two major matches that can turn out as the make-or-break for the El Clasico sides this weekend.
Valencia are currently struggling in the mid-table, with a top half finish at the end of the season in major doubts. That said, Zidane is not at all taking the match lightly and has thus entrusted his strongest team possible to clash against Valencia.
Apart from Gareth Bale, all the big names -- from Karim Benzema to Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo -- are taking part in the match. Bale, who is out with a calf injury, will possibly be replaced by either James Rodriguez or Isco.
