Barca set to strike early at sloppy Betis

Sociedad can bounce back with victory over Celta

Lionel Messi can lead Barcelona to yet another victory
1 of 1

Sky Sports, from 11am Sunday

Alaves v Leganes Sky Sports Mix, 11am
Leganes put a lot of effort into a 1-0 loss at home to Real Madrid in a Copa del Rey quarter-final, first leg on Thursday and may not be fully recovered for their clash at Alaves just three days later.

Alaves have won seven of their last ten matches and look a decent bet to land another three points at odds-against.

Recommendation
Alaves
1pt 6-5 general

Key stat
Alaves have won their last five home fixtures.

Real Madrid v Deportivo Sky Sports Mix, 3.15pm
Marco Asensio's late goal handed Real Madrid a welcome 1-0 win at Leganes in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals but the Spanish and European champions are not playing anywhere near their peak and could make hard work of beating Deportivo at the Bernabeu.

Depor dug out a 1-1 draw at Villarreal on their last road trip and can keep the score respectable against Zinedine Zidane's strugglers.

Recommendation
Real Madrid to win 2-1
1pt 11-1 general

Key stat
Real Madrid have kept one clean sheet in their last seven home games.

Real Sociedad v Celta Vigo Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Sociedad gave up a two-goal lead in their 4-2 loss at home to Barcelona last week but played well for long periods and can bounce back with a victory over Celta Vigo.

It has been a tough season for lowly Sociedad but they average 2.1 goals in home league fixtures and have sufficient firepower to trouble mid-table Celta, who are only two points above them.

Recommendation
Sociedad
1pt 10-11 general

Key stat
Sociedad have scored two goals or more in six of their last eight home games.

Real Betis v Barcelona Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Barcelona have some work to do in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals after losing 1-0 at Espanyol in Wednesday's first leg but can finish off a testing week with a victory at Real Betis.

Given their long list of injuries and tough schedule, Barca may not be at their best but they should have too much firepower for mid-table Betis, who are unreliable in defence.

Recommendation
Barcelona-Barcelona double result
1pt 19-20 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Betis have conceded 36 league goals – more than any other team who started the weekend outside the bottom three.
