Key matches left to play--
Away game to Celta Vigo: The last time Barcelona won away at Celta Vigo was 2014/2015 after losing at Camp Nou to the same team.
Home game to Atlético Madrid :The last time Atlético de Madrid won at Camp Nou was 2005/2006 season but this will be tricky because Atletico is one of the form team in la liga at present.
Away game to Villarreal:This looks easy on paper because Barcelona haven't lost to Villarreal in 19 attempts but Villarreal are still fighting for a place in Europe, this might give them an extra motivation since they drew the last game at home to Barcelona.
Key player-- Lionel Messi, continues to be the main man for Barcelona despite turning 33years today

Keys matches left to play:
Home game to Getafe: Real have a good record against Getafe, winning 15, drawing 1 and losing 1 in 17 matches but Getafe are still fighting for a place in the Champion's league and with the 3rd best defensive record in the league, this might prove difficult than expected
Away game to Athletic Club: Real Madrid have a good record against Athletic Club winning 13, drawing 5 and losing once in 19 matches but Athletic have a good home record losing only thrice at home this season and drawing away at Real Madrid in the first leg
Home game to Villarreal : Madrid record against Villarreal is not too bad, winning 8, drawing 7 and losing 2 in 17 matches. Villarreal is still fighting for a place in Europe and this might make it a difficult match for Real Madrid.
