Real Sociedad vs Malaga – Under 2.5 Goals @ 6/5 with MarathonBet (11:00 GMT kick-off)


After a dreadful start to the season, Malaga have become more difficult to beat recently and a first clean sheet of the campaign in 16 league and cup attempts should have raised the level of self-belief in Michel’s side.

If they can maintain the defensive solidity they showed against Levante, there could be something in this game for Malaga although Real Sociedad have been involved in their share of goalfests this term. That is reflected in the odds though, and there may just be a touch of value in siding with the ‘unders’.



Celta Vigo/Draw double chance away to Valencia @ 13/10 with Betfair Sportsbook (14:00 GMT)


Valencia suffered their first defeat of the season, 1-0 away to Getafe, last weekend and it could be that the bubble has burst for a team that have been outperforming Real Madrid this term.

Celta Vigo will have been buoyed by their excellent 2-2 draw away to clear league leaders Barcelona, which followed on the back of a couple of wins to nil, and Luis Enrique’s former assistant Juan Carlos Unzue looks as though he is now getting things right with the Sky Blues.

Villarreal vs Barcelona – Away win and both teams to score @ 9/5 with William Hill (14:00 GMT)


Although Barcelona will have been disappointed to drop points at home to Celta Vigo last weekend, they dodged a bullet as Valencia and Real Madrid also failed to win.

We expect no mistakes from the red-hot title favourites though when they visit El Madrigal, with Villarreal having lost their last two league games and conceded three goals each time.

The Yellow Submarine are much more open under Javier Calleja than used to be the case when Marcelino Garcia Toral was in charge and while they are scoring more goals too, it looks unlikely that their defence will be able to contain Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid – Away win and under 4.5 goals in the match @ 9/10 with BetStars (15:15 GMT)


Going into their midweek Champions League match away to Chelsea, Atletico’s form had really picked up and they had won four in a row, scoring 12 goals in the process.

They are fancied to prevail again on this trip to Seville and although Betis have been involved in a few goalfests recently, Atletico are a very tempting price to win in relatively routine fashion.

Levante vs Athletic Bilbao – Away win @ 13/10 with MarathonBet (17:30 GMT)


This is proving to be a very disappointing first season for Athletic Club, as they prefer to be known, since the departure of manager Ernesto Valverde to Barcelona, but their 0-0 home draw with Real Madrid could prove to be a turning point.

Levante have been struggling to score goals recently, only one in their last three league and cup games, and their Basque opponents are fancied to be too strong.
