La Liga - Team news, key games and stats ahead of Matchday 26

Matchday 26 in La Liga is upon us, and what better way to get you excited about it than telling you that it's Clásico time in Spain. Real Madrid and Barcelona are set to lock horns for the second time this season, and Quique Setién's side will try to claim a win that could very well mean the title for them. On the other hand, Zidane's men have lost some of their flair, and another loss during this week after being beaten by Manchester City could see their title chances in both competitions fade away.

All the weekend's action will begin on Friday, as usual, with the clash between Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid. Saturday's games will include the clash between Valencia and Betis, and a match between Granada and Celta that could have implications in the battle to avoid relegation.

Sunday's games will also bring quite a few emotions, especially with the match involving Espanyol and Atlético. Later that day, Real Madrid will host Barcelona, in what will undoubtedly be the most followed match of the weekend.

There will be more to watch this weekend in the Spanish top-flight, but before we get to that, we need to consider some facts ahead of the 26th matchday of the 2019-20 season.

Team news - Who's in, who's out?

Real Madrid - Injured: Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard. Suspended: Rodrygo.

Barcelona - Injured: Ousmané Dembelé, Luis Suárez, Sergi Roberto. Doubtful: Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué. 

Atlético Madrid - Injured: Thomas Lemar. Doubtful: Jan Oblak, Thomas Partey.

Coach's quotes ahead of Matchday 26

While it's not a quote since he did not go out and say it in a press conference or interview, coach Quique Setién has made a few headlines with his orders prior to El Clásico. Those screams in the team's training session may give fans a good idea on what to expect from Los Culés this Sunday.

"We want to have the ball more than ever! We need to make them run behind the ballI, the coach said several times during the team's training session.
