For the rest of the pack, the chase is on: FC Barcelona have a four point lead at the top of La Liga and it's down to the likes of Real Madrid and reigning, defending champions Atletico Madrid to catch them. How can they do that you ask? Well, all they can do is win their matches and pray for a Blaugrana slip-up and thus far, both teams have been up to the challenge. Of course, Real Madrid bounced back from their El Clasico defeat by eviscerating poor old Granada CF at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday morning, while Atletico Madrid have gone two for two, picking up their most recent victory last night at home to Real Sociedad.

As things stand, Atleti are six points back having played a game more than Barcelona; Real Madrid will remain four points behind at best when they kick-off against Rayo Vallecano later tonight. However, their late kick-off time means that Barcelona have an opportunity tonight against Almeria. Win, and the gap is temporarily extended to a massive seven points.

Either way, one would expect Real to ease past Rayo Vallecano, but you never know -- all that pressure involved with chasing a team that's now seven points clear, a tough atmosphere at Vallecas; stranger things have happened.

But for that to become reality, Barcelona must first do their bit and dispatch Almeria. The Andalusians are in turmoil at the moment having just named their third manager of the season in response to a crushing defeat against Levante; will Barca compound their misery, or can they bounce back in the most unlikeliest of fashions?
