FC Barcelona are undoubtedly one of the most iconic and well-known soccer teams in the world. With a history dating back over 135 years, they have accumulated countless cups, league titles and other prestigious trophies.

This would be a massive blow to their reputation as one of the best teams in Europe and could see them miss out on major competitions such as the Champions League.
Another team facing relegation this season is Valencia. They currently occupy fourth place in La Liga but if they lose both of their matches against Sevilla then they will be relegated to division three.

Atlético are one of only two clubs never to have been relegated from La Liga (the other being Barcelona).
The 2017–18 season was a difficult one for Atlético Madrid. They finished third in La Liga behind Barcelona and Real Madrid but were eliminated in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey by Barcelona. This loss led to widespread reports that Atletico were facing a possible relegation from La Liga. On 21 May 2018, however, Atlético defeated rivals Real Madrid 4–1 in their final game of the season to avoid relegation.
Atlético Madrid have competed in La Liga since its establishment in 1928. They have won the championship on five occasions (1928/29, 1932/33, 1935/36, 1959/60, 2004/05), as well as the Copa del Rey twice (1955/56 and 1997). In Europe they have also won two UEFA Cup Winners' Cups (1984 and 1986) and two UEFA Super Cups (1981 and 2018).
This season,Unblocked Games 66 ez Olympiacos is surprisingly in danger of relegation. With only three points separating them from 18th place and two clubs above them in the table, they have a real chance of dropping down to the third tier.

A relegation for AC Milan would mean the Rossoneri would return to Serie B for the first time since 1988.
