Barcelona do not lack firepower
1 of 1

Sky Sports, from 11am Sunday

Leganes v Espanyol Sky Sports Football, 11am
Leganes produced a massive shock by dumping Real Madrid out of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, winning 2-1 at the Bernabeu and advancing to the semi-final on away-goals.

They can make it two wins in a week at the expense of Espanyol, who exited the Copa del Rey with a 2-1 aggregate defeat to rivals Barcelona.

Recommendation
Leganes
1pt 6-4 general

Key stat
Espanyol have won just one of their nine La Liga away matches this season.

Atletico v Las Palmas Sky Sports Mix, 3.15pm
Atletico Madrid crashed out of the Copa del Rey with a 5-2 aggregate defeat to Sevilla but are going well in the league and can cement second place with a victory over lowly Las Palmas.

Diego Simeone's side have conceded just four home league goals this season and can shut out Las Palmas, who have failed to score on their last four road trips.

Recommendation
Atletico to win 2-0
1pt 11-2 Hills

Key stat
Atletico have kept clean sheets in seven of their last ten league fixtures.

Sevilla v Getafe Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Sevilla have been much better in the cups than the league this season and go into the home match with Getafe needing a win to stay in touch with the race for a top-four finish.

However, the Andalusians should be confident after advancing to the last four of the Copa del Rey and should be too strong for Getafe, who are bidding to avoid a fifth successive away defeat.

Recommendation
Sevilla-Sevilla double result
1pt 11-8 Coral

Key stat
Getafe have not won any of their last eight away games.

Barcelona v Alaves Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Barcelona deployed their big guns to see off Espanyol 2-0 in Thursday's Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg, ensuring a 2-1 aggregate success. But they should have enough left in the tank to post an easy home win just three days later.

The Catalans may be less fatigued than Alaves, who went out of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday after losing on penalties to Valencia.

Recommendation
Barcelona to win 3-0
1pt 11-2 general

Key stat
Eight of Barcelona's last nine wins have been achieved without conceding a goal.
