Villarreal v Las Palmas Sky Sports Mix, 11am
Villarreal rested key players for Thursday's Europa League clash at home to Slavia Prague and were held to a disappointing 2-2 draw.

Head coach Javier Calleja will revert to his full-strength side for the weekend and they should be too strong for lowly Las Palmas, who are on a four-game losing sequence.

Dan Childs's recommendation

Key stat
Las Palmas have not kept a clean sheet in their last 27 away league games.

Celta Vigo v Atletico Madrid Sky Sports Football, 3.15pm
Atletico Madrid are going through a difficult spell and their winless run may be extended to five with a stalemate in Vigo.

Champions League knockout stage qualification looks a long shot after Atleti's 0-0 draw with Qarabag and Diego Simeone's side may struggle to achieve a better result against Celta, who are unbeaten in four.

Dan Childs's recommendation

Key stat
Four of Atletico's last five away games have ended 0-0.

Leganes v Athletic Bilbao Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Athletic Bilbao are still without a win after three matches in Europa League Group J and needed a late goal to salvage a 2-2 draw at Swedish side Ostersunds on Thursday.

They would have been targeting a win and their week could finish on a sour note against Leganes, who are bidding to consolidate a top-six place.

Dan Childs's recommendation

Key stat
Leganes have kept clean sheets in their last four fixtures.

Real Madrid v Eibar Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Real Madrid were give a tough game by Tottenham at the Bernabeu on Tuesday but are unlikely to be seriously tested by lowly Eibar, who have failed to score in five of eight matches this season.

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

Key stat
Eibar have conceded at least three goals on their last three road trips.
