SaturdayDeportivo (8th) vs Osasuna (17th)Now, La Liga Loca doesnÃ¢ÂÂt mean to start the latest edition of its regular Friday ramble on a big old downer. But, Merciful Zeus, is this weekendÃ¢ÂÂs serving of silage the worst set of fixtures ever? Or at least since the round of matches appeared for the first time last September?AlmerÃÂa vs Valladolid anyone? No? How about Numancia vs Mallorca?The round kicks off with Depor, a side that - to quote an acclaimed La Liga pundit this week: Ã¢ÂÂif they finish in the Champions League places then we may as well pack up and leaveÃ¢ÂÂ - against Osasuna, a team who are merrily set-piecing their way out of relegation trouble.

After all, the blog heard a story that some correspondents had contacted their colleagues in Spain to ask advice on which game they could go to last weekend to Ã¢ÂÂhear racist abuse.Ã¢ÂÂOn a similar vein, there is one club in Spain doing its best to chip away against another widespread prejudice in the global game... homophobia. Barcelona have launched SpainÃ¢ÂÂs first gay Ã¢ÂÂpeÃÂ±aÃ¢ÂÂ or fan club. The PBGL - or Gay and Lesbian Barcelona PeÃÂ±a - was opened last week and awarded a plaque on the outside wall of the Camp Nou. In an interview with Marca, peÃÂ±a president, Josep Ribes sympathised with one particular Real Madrid player who is perhaps the biggest target of all from supporters in the stands all over Spain. Ã¢ÂÂWhen they sing Ã¢ÂÂGuti, Guti, Guti, (expletive), I feel bad. Both for me and him. ItÃ¢ÂÂs just offensive.Ã¢ÂÂLLL Prediction - Away winValencia (4th) vs MÃÂ¡laga (7th)Ã¢ÂÂDum, dum, de, dumÃ¢ÂÂ... itÃ¢ÂÂs your wedding day... Ã¢ÂÂDum, dum, de, dumÃ¢ÂÂ... you are looking resplendent in your beautiful white dress.
