If Real Madrid is to retain their Spanish league title, this week will be crucial. Two victories could definitely revive La Liga.

In two games, this Monday and next Sunday, everything could change in La Liga. While a month ago, few saw Atletico not being crowned champions as the Colchoneros' lead was important, now Real Madrid and Barca have narrowed the gap. Simeone's men lost seven points in February, enough to revive the entire championship.

This week will be very important for the Merengues since if they were to win tonight against Sociedad and then in six days in the Madrid derby, real would be at the top of the standings. There will always be a game left to play for Atletico, but all the cards would be replayed.

For these two decisive appointments, Zidane will be able to count on the returns of several of his injured players. Already tonight, Rodrygo and Valverde could get minutes for the Madrid derby. Benzema, on the other hand, should be just ready in time to play this clash at the top.
