With 3 teams in La Liga there is always a match every weekend. This year: Leganés, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid. The matches are very seldom sold out (unless Barcelona or Real Madrid being the visiting team). The easiest is to decide a mach and then go to the stadium some 3 hours before the match in order to buy tickets.
