Bengaluru, Dec 15: La Liga game week 16 kicks off this Saturday, December 17 with Real Betis taking on newbies Alaves.
The headlining match of the game week is the Catalan derby where second-placed FC Barcelona take on local rivals Espanyol.
Barcelona, after a poor run of form in the league, came back strongly defeating Osasuna 3-0 last weekend. Lionel Messi's sublime form is something Luis Enrique would bank in the derby.
