Confident Real may coast home against improving Espanyol

Valencia could inflict more misery on Bilbao

Sky Sports, from 11.30am Sunday

Sociedad v Betis Sky Sports Mix, 11.30am
Betis followed up their improbable 1-0 win at Real Madrid with a 4-0 thumping of Levante to indicate they are going to be a serious test for anyone this season.

Sociedad, having won their first three games in the league, have lost their last three and also endured a miserable trip to Russia on Thursday when they lost 3-1 at Zenit.

Steve Davies's recommendation
Real Betis
1pt 3-1 bet365, Betfred

Key stat
Neither side have drawn any of their combined 14 matches this season.

Barcelona v Las Palmas Sky Sports Football, 3.15pm
Barcelona are defending the only 100 per cent record in La Liga and can maintain it with an easy victory over Las Palmas.

The Catalans have won their three home league games this season by an aggregate 13-1 scoreline and should cruise to the three points against the lowly Canaries, who have lost their last two matches without scoring.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Barcelona win to nil
1pt 21-20 BoyleSports

Key stat
Las Palmas have failed to score in five of their last six away matches.

Valencia v Athletic Bilbao Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Unbeaten in their first seven in La Liga and Europa League, Athletic are now without a win in five, and even against lowly Malaga’s ten men last weekend they could manage only a draw.

Valencia, in contrast, are still unbeaten and since they’ve played both Madrid giants, it suggests their position in the table doesn’t flatter them.

Steve Davies's recommendation
2pts 4-5 general

Key stat
Valencia have yet to concede a home goal in three games this term.

Bet on this game at

Real Madrid v Espanyol Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Espanyol have recovered well from a slow start to the season – taking seven points from the last three games – but they could be heavily defeated by Real Madrid.

Four points separate Real from leaders Barcelona but Los Blancos will be full of confidence after winning 3-1 at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Real Madrid to win 3-0
1pt 15-2 Betfair

Key stat
Espanyol have failed to score in eight of their last ten games against Real Madrid.
