Levante v Valencia Eleven Sports 1, 11am

It’s derby day in Valencia and these rivals both head into the game after defeats.

Levante, impressive 3-0 winners at Betis in their opener, were beaten 2-1 at home by Celta while Valencia lost 2-0 at Espanyol having drawn at home to Atletico a week before. 

Steve Davies' recommendation
1pt 13-5 Betfair, Betway

Key stat
Levante are unbeaten in their last five home games against Valencia.

Alaves v Espanyol TEleven Sports 1, 3.15pm

Alaves picked up nine home wins last season and they may be just too strong for Espanyol, who tend to struggle on the road.

It has been a tough start for Alaves, who lost 3-0 at Barcelona and drew 0-0 at home to Betis, but they should be backed to register their first goals and points of the campaign.

Dan Childs's recommendation
1pt 2-1 Betway, 188Bet

Key stat
Alaves have won four of their last six home league matches against Espanyol.

Barcelona v Huesca Eleven Sports 1, 5.30pm

Barcelona have already recorded two wins to nil as normal service has been resumed at Camp Nou and they can make it three against promoted Huesca.

Leo Franco’s newcomers have started brightly enough with a 2-1 win at Eibar followed by a 2-2 draw, from 2-0 down, at Athletic Bilbao but this is a step up again.

Steve Davies' recommendation
Barcelona to win to nil
2pts 7-10 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Barca have won their last three Liga games without conceding.

Real Betis v Sevilla Eleven Sports 1, 7.45pm

Betis are searching for their first goals of the season but a home match against rivals Sevilla could be what they need to get their campaign up and running.

Sevilla lost 11 of 19 away league games last season and may struggle to cope with such a big match at the end of a busy week in which they won 3-0 at home Sigma Olomouc in the Europa League.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Real Betis
1pt 9-5 general

Key stat
Sevilla have won one of their last six La Liga away fixtures.
