One thing about the battle at the top of La Liga this season - it has been unpredictable to say the least. Just when you think that a team has built themselves a bit of a cushion, they are pulled right back into the pack.

For instance, who would have thought that Barcelona would lose to Valladolid a few weeks ago? You just never know what is going to happen.

Will all three teams win on Saturday? Will anybody pull away from the rest of the pack? Will Real Madrid pull themselves closer to the top of the league? This should be a great weekend of action.
