Barcelona, who missed the chance to go top in losing to Granada on Thursday, can move level on points with Real with victory against Valencia on Sunday.
Fourth-placed Sevilla are also in the mix, and can can stay within three points of the top if they beat Athletic Bilbao on Monday.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are in the semifinal of the Champions League.
With the first leg at the Bernabeu ending at 1-1 against Chelsea, the Zinedine Zidane’s men will travel to Stamford Bridge looking to reach their fifth final in eight years.
