Watch six enthralling La Liga games on Sky Sports this weekend

Last Updated: 27/09/13 3:29pm

Will Carlo Ancelotti help Real get the better of Madrid rivals Atletico?

A mouth-watering Madrid derby will be the highlight of Sky Sports' La Liga coverage this weekend - but there is plenty more to look forward to as well.

The Real-Atletico showdown will conclude Saturday's Spanish footballing feast, which also sees table-toppers Barcelona visit struggling Almeria, and Real Sociedad battle Sevilla at the Anoeta.

The action keeps coming thick and fast on Sunday, too, as we bring you live coverage of Espanyol versus Getafe and match between the Seville-based Real Betis and the newly-promoted but high-flying Villarreal.

Plus, on Monday night, there will be a whole host of delights to tuck into on our online channel Sky Sports Xtra, including the La Liga fixture between Granada and a rejuvenated Athletic Bilbao.

Home side Granada will be hoping of spoiling their fans with goals after going three games without rippling the net, while a win would help the Andalusians pull away from the drop zone - an area they have flirted with ever since their promotion at the end of the 2010/11 campaign.

Bilbao, meanwhile, suffered a tough end to last season, which culminated in a 12th-placed finish and the departure of their characterful manager Marcelo Bielsa - but things look a lot rosier now.

The Basque outfit have won their previous two La Liga games - at home to Osasuna and at Vallodolid - to creep up to fifth in the table, with Ander Herrera, a target for Man United during the summer transfer window, pulling the strings.

Monday's line-up on Sky Sports Xtra will begin at 7pm with highlights of the Madrid derby and the Almeria-Barcelona duel, as well as the best bits from the 2012/13 meeting between Granada and Athletic Bilbao.

Then, from 9pm, Granada and Athletic Bilbao will square off at Los Cármenes, while when the final whistle blows, our team will reflect on the Spanish footballing weekend as a whole.
