A Better Lens at Spanish Football


The weekend after 5 Spanish teams qualify for European semi-finals.  What a season!  Once again this is an opportunity for those teams not playing in Europe to gain points on their tired rivals, (yes Malaga, Sevilla, Getafe, Levante & Espanyol, I am looking at you guys).  Semana Santa or Holy Week celebrations in full effect.


Here are the fixtures:

And here’s the midweek round 33 fixtures.  I am not sure if some of the games will be available on DirectvSports so check your local listings.  The derby madrileño comes at a precarious time for Los Blancos, whereas Villarreal has a crucial match against big, bad Malaga and Santi Cazorla!!  Enjoy La Liga every day!!
