Barca unlikely to steamroller rivals

Neymar and Barcelona take on rivals Espanyol
1 of 1

Leganes v Eibar
Sky Sports 5, 3.15pm
Eibar have won only one away game this season while Leganes have just one victory in seven at home so it’s hard to make a case for either side.

There may be a lack of early action – Leganes have scored only two first-half goals this season while Eibar have conceded seven times in the last 15 minutes of games.

James Milton's recommendation
More goals in the second half
3pts 13-10 Betfair

Key stat
Eibar have picked up only five of their 22 points away from home this term

Deportivo v Osasuna
Sky Sports 5, 5.30pm
Deportivo have been on a poor run, managing just one victory since October in La Liga, but they remain dangerous opponents on their own patch and can oblige against bottom side Osasuna.

The hosts, so reliant on their home form, ran out emphatic 5-1 winners against Real Sociedad last week while the Reds have conjured up just five points on the travels.

Aaron Ashley's recommendation
2pts 6-10 Betfair, Hills

Key stat
Osasuna have won just one of their last 11 away games

Barcelona v Espanyol
Sky Sports 1, 7.45pm
Barcelona have the chance to eat into Real Madrid’s six-point lead at the top of La Liga but local rivals Espanyol could prove to be tougher opposition than the betting suggests.

Barca have won just one of their last seven matches by more than a one-goal margin and the visitors, unbeaten in nine league matches, are fancied to avoid a hammering at Camp Nou.

Aaron Ashley's recommendation
Espanyol +3 on handicap
1pt 10-11 Betfred, Betway, Coral

Key stat
Espanyol are unbeaten in six away matches
