Sky Sports from 11am Sunday

Leganes v Malaga Sky Sports 3, 11am
There is a decent gap between Malaga and the relegation zone but their dismal away form is a major concern with trips to four of their fellow strugglers still to come.

They may struggle to claim an elusive first win on the road at Leganes, who have drawn with Seville, beaten Granada and Deportivo at home and lost narrowly at Barcelona in recent weeks.

Key stat
Malaga have taken just six points from a possible 42 away from home.

Atletico Madrid v Seville Sky Sports 2, 3.15pm
Atletico Madrid's 4-2 first-leg lead was rarely threatened against Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday as they claimed a goalless draw and they should have enough time to recover for this titanic clash with Seville.

Jorge Sampaoli's team were dumped out of that competition by Leicester on Tuesday and their fragile confidence is likely to be dented again.

Key stat
Atletico Madrid have won five of their last six home La Liga matches.

Sporting Gijon v Granada Sky Sports 2, 5.30pm
It's crunch time at the bottom of La Liga and punters can expect a tense, tight clash between two struggling sides.

Granada boosted their survival chances with three home wins out of four but their away form is poor although Gijon, with two victories in 24 league games, are unlikely to take full advantage.

Key stat
Granada have picked up only three of their 19 points in away games this season.

Barcelona v Valencia Sky Sports 2 & Mix, 7.45pm
After an incredible Champions League win over PSG, Barcelona were brought down to earth by last week's 2-1 defeat at Deportivo.

They will have to be on their guard against an improving Valencia side who lost only 3-2 in October's reverse fixture and pose a threat to an occasionally wobbly Barca defence.
