Real Madrid vs Valencia
Three matches left to play and Real Madrid must gain 9 points if they stand any chance of claiming the title. Following their lacklustre display against Juventus, the pressure on Carlo Ancelotti’s team has intensified and Valencia will look to exploit any tired legs and fragile minds in this fixture. Valencia are sitting 3 points above the Champions League spot rivals Sevilla and any points gained at the Bernabeu will be a huge step to achieving their goals. However, I think Real Madrid have the quality to bounce back in style and I feel they will edge it against Valencia in a tight encounter.
Barcelona vs Real Sociedad
Barcelona were phenomenal against Bayern Munich, who set up in a way which allowed Messi, Suarez and Neymar to operate with great effect. Real Sociedad will be dreading their trip to the Nou Camp against arguably the best team in world football at the moment. David Moyes has had some critics recently but they won comfortably 3-0 against Levante which will instil some confidence in the dressing room. However, there is no stopping this Barcelona team at the moment and I think the only debate lies within how any the Catalans will put past Geronimo Rulli.
PSG vs Guingamp
Following their Champions League exit, it is vital that PSG do not slip up in the title race. They now have a stronghold on 1st place and can move 6 points clear of their title rivals as they play first on Friday night. Guingamp can go into this game without too much pressure as they sit comfortably in 10th place without much chance of achieving anything more this season. This can work in PSG’s favour as they will definitely have the edge in terms of desire and quality. However, they must be careful not to be complacent which some pundits believe has been their achilles heel in the League. However, when it counts, they tend to get the job done and I expect them to do the same.
