La Liga – 10 games to go (2020/2021)

Teams are in reverse order. Last five games begins with the most recent.

20th – Huesca – 21pts – DLLDWTeam Profile
Huesca’s players have remained loyal to the cause, but will need a little bit of magic to survive the drop. Three wins from the next five would give the Oscences a shot.
Next 5: Levante (A), Elche (H), Atletico (A), Getafe (H), Alaves (A)

19th – Alaves – 23pts – LDLLLTeam Profile
Things are looking grim at the moment for the boys from Vitoria-Gasteiz with just a single point taken from the last six. The home match against Huesca is a must win.
Next 5: Celta (H), Bilbao (A), Villarreal (H), Valencia (A), Huesca (H)

18th – Eibar – 23pts – DLLDLTeam Profile
A horrible looking run-in with games against four of the current top five could see tiny Eibar’s remarkable seven year run in the top flight come to an end. No wins in the last eleven.
Next 5: Real Madrid (A), Levante (H), Granada (A), Sociedad (H), Atletico (A)

17th – Elche – 25pts – DLLWL Team Profile
Survival is a definite possibility for the Frangiverds, which is as much as they could have hoped for after squeezing into then through the playoffs last year.
Next 5: Betis (H), Huesca (A), Valladolid (H), Levante (H), Osasuna (A)

16th – Real Valladolid – 27pts – DDWDLTeam Profile
La Pucela’s yearly flirtation with relegation is underway, but they’ve shown they have the ability to survive a tough run-in. Shon Weissman has been a real find.
Next 5: Barca (A), Granada (H), Elche (A), Cadiz (H), Bilbao (A)

15th – Cadiz – 29pts – LDWLDTeam Profile
After an unexpectedly strong start, the other “yellow submarine” have been sinking down the table. Alvaro Negredo should steer them out of choppy waters.
Next 5: Valencia (H), Getafe (A), Real Madrid (H), Valladolid (A), Celta (H)

14th – Getafe – 29pts – DDLWL Team Profile
Getafe have been miles off last season’s biting the heels of the big boys, perhaps due to the added fixtures of their Euro campaign. Coach Jose Bordalas is rightly still in his job.
Next 5: Osasuna (A), Cadiz (H), Barca (A), Huesca (A), Real Madrid (H)

13th – Osasuna – 30pts – DDLWLTeam Profile
The Pamplona outfit are having a steady but unremarkable season. Without the record home run that came to an end last season, they’ve slipped down the table a little.
Next 5: Getafe (H), Villarreal (A), Valencia (H), Celta (A), Elche (H)

12th – Valencia – 33pts – WLWLWTeam Profile
With Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin popping down the road to join Villarreal, Valencia is no longer the strongest team in the region. Sad to see the fans’ struggle with the owner.
Next 5: Cadiz (A), Valencia (H), Osasuna (A), Alaves (H), Betis (A)

11th – Celta Vigo – 34pts – LDWDLTeam Profile
Celta should finally avoid 17th place this season. The football has been much better under new boss Coudet, keeping them mid-table despite no Iago Aspas goals in 2021.
Next 5: Alaves (A), Sevilla (H), Sociedad (A), Osasuna (H), Cadiz (A)

10th – Levante – 35pts – LWLDWTeam Profile
Bags of goals from strike pair Roger Marti and El Comandante have produced an excellent season for La Granota, who reached the semi-final of the cup.
Next 5: Huesca (H), Eibar (A), Sevilla (H), Elche (A), Villarreal (H)

9th – Athletic Bilbao – 35pts – DDLWDTeam Profile
Athletic will be hoping to close the gap to Barca and pull away from Real in terms of Copa Del Rey wins with their two finals for 2020 and 2021. The league has been nothing to write home about.
Next 5: Sociedad (A), Alaves (H), Betis (A), Atletico (H), Valladolid (H)

8th – Granada – 36pts – LWLWLTeam Profile
Next 5: Villarreal (H), Valladolid (A), Eibar (H), Sevilla (A), Barca (A)
Raul Espinola has led Los Rojiblancos to a QF Europa League showdown with Manchester United AND kept them strong in the league behind a reborn Roberto Soldado. Chapeau!

7th – Villarreal – 43pts – WWLLDTeam Profile
Europa League QF for the better known “yellow submarine” under Unai Emery. He’d love another win. Gerard Moreno is approaching club record goal-scorer status.
Next 5: Granada (A), Osasuna (H), Alaves (A), Barca (H), Levante (A)

6th – Real Betis – 45pts – WLWWWTeam Profile
Betis are flying under Pellegrini with five wins in the last six. The one loss came against bitter rivals Sevilla, however, who are probably too far ahead to catch in 4th.
Next 5: Elche (A), Atletico (H), Bilbao (H), Real Madrid (A), Valencia (H)

5th – Real Sociedad – 45pts – LLWDWTeam Profile
La Real were the early frontrunners with David Silva pulling the strings, but couldn’t last the course. They suffered a 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Barca last time out.
Next 5: Bilbao (H), Valencia (A), Celta (H), Eibar (A), Sevilla (H)

4th – Sevilla – 55pts – DWWLLTeam Profile
You would think Sevilla had done enough to secure Champions League football, but their run-in is as tough as it could get. En-Nesyri has had a great season up front.
Next 5: Atletico (H), Celta (A), Levante (A), Granada (H), Sociedad (A)

3rd – Real Madrid – 60pts – WWDDWTeam Profile
Benzema is unstoppable at the moment with 6 goals in his last 4 games hauling Madrid through to the last 8 of the Champions League and keeping their title challenge alive.
Next 5: Eibar (H), Barca (H), Cadiz (A), Betis (H), Getafe (A)

2nd – Barcelona – 62pts – WWWWWTeam Profile
Champions League aside, Messi and Barca have been on a blinding run of form that has taken them to the Copa Del Rey final and right into the slipstream of Atletico.
Next 5: Valladolid (H), Real Madrid (A), Getafe (H), Villarreal (A), Granada (H)

1st – Atletico Madrid – 66pts – WDWDWTeam Profile
It all seemed like a foregone conclusion for Atletico, but then Barca and Real got their act together and they’ve stuttered. Luis Suarez and Joao Felix will try to get them over the line.
Next 5: Sevilla (A), Betis (A), Huesca (H), Bilbao (A), Eibar (H)
