The 10th round begins with Madrid and Barcelona tied with 21 points, two more than third-place Atletico. Celta Vigo and Villarreal, which had been among the leaders recently, are fourth and fifth, respectively.
Atletico Madrid plays at Deportivo La Coruna on Thursday night, Real Madrid hosts Las Palmas today and Barcelona plays at Getafe.
