Malaga have a tremendous home record of late, but that might not be enough to prevent a near-to-full strength Real side pushing on to claim the La Liga crown in emphatic fashion.

FC's La Liga correspondent Sid Lowe gives his take on who will stay and who will go at Real Madrid this summer.

Real Madrid defeated Celta Vigo 4-1 on Wednesday to go three points clear of Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league and will need just a point this weekend away to Malaga to clinch their first league title in half a decade.

Spain's first division is often defined by its two massive clubs, with Real Madrid and Barcelona holding a tremendous influence in La Liga each year. "I owe them [Barca] everything".

"I hope it will be a dream day".

An ongoing hot streak of seven in his last eight LaLiga appearances includes a strike against Barca, when Malaga saw off Luis Enrique's men 2-0 last month, and Sandro hopes for a further say in the title race. I want to enjoy Real Madrid [for a] long time, my family and I are delighted to live here. "I was always a Barca fan and so was my father".

Barcelona's hopes of a third straight title depend on it beating mid-table Eibar at the Camp Nou on Sunday and Madrid losing in Malaga.

"I am happy, I am just a bit exhausted that's all", he said.

"We are going to continue playing as we have been doing, we can't play like that, we have to play as we always play and we know it will be hard, but we are going to go to win the match", he concluded.

None was bigger than his opening goal in a 2-0 win over Barcelona on April 8 that robbed it of the chance of capitalizing on Madrid's 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid just hours before.

Romero's form as back-up for De Gea this season has been very impressive, giving Mourinho plenty to ponder ahead of an offseason when Real Madrid could come back in for De Gea following interest in the goalkeeper in previous transfer windows. "Barca are favourites and play at home".

'We still have one game to go. We want to take a positive result on Sunday.

"He has managed things very well", Ronaldo added on Zidane. It wasn't a good season but it was not due to the club.

"I feel good. Everything is decided in the final weeks of the season and I am doing well". The Blaugrana are on a run of six consecutive wins, scoring twenty-four in the process and another attacking master class is expected against Eibar on Sunday.

Now eighth in the table, manager Jose Luis Mendilibar has led Los Armeros to impressive results during the season.
