A 2-0 win over local rivals Espanyol Saturday ensured Barca maintained a two-point lead over Real Madrid at the top of the table with just five games remaining.However, while Real have to face Champions League-chasing Sevilla and Valencia in the coming weeks, four of Barca's last five games come against sides in the bottom half of the table, starting with the visit of Getafe Tuesday.Madrid kept the pressure on Barca as they came from behind to win 4-2 at Celta Vigo Sunday in a hugely entertaining game.Atletico Madrid can move a step closer to sealing third place and an automatic return to the Champions League next season when they travel to the out-of-sorts Villarreal. Villarreal are the only side to have beaten Atletico at the Vicente Calderon in La Liga this season, but haven't won in nine games in all competitions.
