Barcelona to give Deportivo a sound beating

Lionel Messi has been in customary flying form for Barcelona
1 of 1

Sky Sports Football, from 3.15pm Sunday

Celta Vigo v Villarreal 3.15pm
Celta are the top scorers among the teams in the bottom half and look the likelier winners of their home match with Villarreal.

Few strikers in La Liga are playing as well as Celta's Iago Aspas, who has notched ten goals in his last nine appearances. He could stay on the goal trail against Villarreal, who have lost three matches in a row.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Celta Vigo
1pt 11-8 general

Key stat
Villarreal have not kept a clean sheet on their last six domestic road trips.

Las Palmas v Espanyol 5.30pm

Espanyol once again demonstrated their lack of attacking threat with a 1-0 loss at home to Girona last weekend and could be dragged into the relegation mix with defeat at rock-bottom Las Palmas.

The visitors are winless in seven league games on their travels and have notched just three away goals. Until they sign a top-class striker they should be opposed.

Aaron Ashley's recommendation
Las Palmas
1pt 6-4 general

Key stat
Espanyol have shipped seven goals in their last four away games.

Barcelona v Deportivo 7.45pm
Barcelona have dropped just two points in La Liga home games this season and are unlikely to fall short against fourth-bottom Deportivo, who are bracing themselves for a winter struggle.

Next weekend's trip to Real Madrid will be on Barca's minds but probably not enough to distract them from the task at hand.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Barcelona to win 3-0
1pt 13-2 general

Key stat
Deportivo have conceded two goals or more goals in six of their eight away fixtures.
