Barcelona should have it easy against Basque boys

Barcelona superstar Luis Suarez could silence Atletico
1 of 1

Sky Sports, from 11am Sunday

Osasuna v Seville SS Mix & 5, 11am
La Liga basement boys Osasuna have lost just one of their last five matches but are unlikely to cope with Seville, who moved up to second with last week's 2-1 victory at home to Real Madrid.

Seville are the most improved team in La Liga this season but have kept just five clean sheets in league games this term and may concede again even if they land the spoils. 

Dan Childs's recommendation
Seville win and both teams score
1pt 21-10 Hills, Paddy Power

Key stat
Both teams have scored in ten of Seville's last 13 domestic matches

Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid SS Mix, 3.15pm
Athletic Bilbao are a tough nut to crack at San Mames and they can earn a share of the spoils against Atletico Madrid, who are coming under pressure in the battle for Champions League qualification.

Atletico have won six of their last seven matches but Athletic have not lost on home soil since a 1-0 defeat to Barcelona in August.

Key stat
Athletic have lost just one match in Bilbao this season

Betis v Gijon SS red button, 5.30pm
Real Betis, with four wins and a draw in their last five home games, are in good enough form to see off a Sporting side in crisis.

It's a thankless trip south for Sporting, who have had just one win in the league since September and saw unpopular coach Abelardo finally axed on Wednesday.

Sporting have taken five points from the last 45 available

Real Sociedad v Celta Vigo SS3, 5.30pm
Real Sociedad are taking no prisoners in their bid to qualify for Europe and they can continue their good run at the Anoeta Stadium by defeating Celta Vigo. 

Eusebio Sacristan's men have lost just two league matches on home soil this term - against Seville and Real Madrid - and impressed in their 2-0 triumph at Malaga, while the visitors have picked up only six points on their travels.

Key stat
Celta Vigo have won just one La Liga away match this term

Eibar v Barcelona SS5, 7.45pm
Eibar have failed to score in their last two at home and failed to take a point off Barcelona in four previous attempts so Barca should dot up in Eibar, just a few days after winning up the road in San Sebastian against Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey.

However, a couple of injury doubts cloud the issue and the visitors may have to work for their win.

Steve Davies's recommendation
Barcelona to win & under 3.5 goals
