Fourth place Sevilla play fifth place Valencia this weekend. Sevilla have enjoyed a solid La Liga campaign and Valencia have also been in fine form throughout the season, currently standing just one point behind the 3rd-placed Real Madrid.

The two are most likely contenders for the final La Liga Champions League place.
