The last day of any football season, in any football league, is complicated. It’s enough that teams have to play all their games on the same day, at the same time. But there’s also the different battles for points, relegation scraps and the race for Europe.
We will see this and much more when the last round of La Liga games, for the 2019/2020 season, are played. There’s no more title race as Real Madrid have been declared champions; their 34th La Liga title. However, a quick glance at the La table shows that there’s still plenty to be fought for.
One of such games is the Sevilla vs. Valencia game. The home side has already qualified for Europe via the Champions League route. In Valencia, they face a side that needs, among other things, to win to qualify for Europe via the Europa League route.
Can their good streak continue this weekend against a side that has only conceded once in their last five?

While Valencia need to win, they will be hoping Real Sociedad and Getafe will drop points. These two teams, in sixth and seventh place respectively, are directly above Valencia. And both teams will also be in action on Sunday.
For Real Sociedad, their last La Liga game of the season will be away to Atletico Madrid. There are no prizes for guessing which team Valencia fans will be supporting in this game. Diego Simeone’s side are currently on a 15-game unbeaten run. But they have to contend with a Sociedad side that have lost just once in their last five games.
Will a penalty be awarded in this game?

Getafe, one of Valencia’s recent rivals, will also be away to Levante. They, however, have to do better than their recent record, if they’re to get any points in this fixture. Since resumption, Getafe have only won once in their last six, a record Valencia fans will be hoping continues.
Real Mallorca and Espanyol have been relegated. Real Valladolid, in 16th place, with 39 points, are safe already. That leaves Celta Vigo and Leganes as the two sides up for La Liga relegation.
For Leganes, they have to:
- Defeat the new champions, Real Madrid
- Hope that Celta Vigo drop points
The task for Celta Vigo is easier. They face an already-relegated Espanyol side on the last day of the La Liga season.

In the last round of games, only one ended in a goalless draw. It was the same in Round 36 of games. And with a lot at stake, that trend may continue.
