The current tight situation in la liga could change in the coming two weeks with all the sides playing three games in a short period of time. Depor is not the only side having a complicate calendar; Sporting, Getafe and Rayo are having a tough period too.

Three of the last six matchdays will be played in the next two weeks, so the fact of clinching positive results in the next three games will surely cause a drastic change in the situation at the standings for some of the teams. It could be a matter of life or death for some of the teams currently in relegation. Four of the last nine clubs are facing a tough calendar, one of them is Deportivo.

Because the Galicians have to play against Sevilla CF and FC Barcelona is a frame of four days, with their other game been a visit to SD Eibar. It’s the same situation for Sporting Gijón, side that also plays against Sevilla CF and FC Barcelona, their other match is a visit to in-form UD Las Palmas.

These two clubs can be considered to have the worse calendar; the difference is that the Galicians have a nine-point mattress with relegation, while the Asturians are already in the pit. Another club in relegation, Getafe CF, also face a sensitive calendar with meetings against Real Madrid and Valencia CF, plus an always tough visit to Real Sociedad.

Rayo Vallecano is the fourth club with a difficult calendar in the next two weeks, they have to host Villarreal CF and Real Madrid, and in the middle pay a visit to Málaga CF. The Madrilenians are currently out of relegation, but only by three points, so the next two weeks could see them sink into deep trouble.

The next three games for the last 9 places:
Depor: At Sevilla; Vs. Barcelona; At Eibar
Betis: At Celta; Vs. Las Palmas; At Sevilla
Valencia: At Barcelona; Vs. Eibar; At Getafe
Espanyol: At Levante;  Vs. Celta;  At Las Palmas
Rayo: Vs. Villarreal; At Málaga; Vs. Real Madrid
Granada: At Atlético; Vs. Levante; At Celta
Sporting: At Las Palmas;  Vs. Sevilla; At Barcelona
Getafe: Vs. Real Madrid; At Real Sociedad; Vs. Valencia
Levante: Vs. Espanyol; At Granada; Vs. Athletic
