Best bets in Spain
Sky Sports Football, from 11am
Celta’s 5-0 thrashing at Barcelona was damaging though Levante were beaten at home by Espanyol having won the away leg. Both coaches are focused on this encounter, which could well be tight.
1pt 12-5 general
The only goal scored by Levante in their last six league games was an own goal.
Their three league wins in that sequence were against bottom-eight opponents and showdowns with Athletic and Atletico ending in defeats to nil. However, Sevilla have lost their way a bit, shipping 13 goals in their last four.
Alaves draw no bet
1pt 13-10 Betway
Sevilla have lost six of their last seven La Liga away games.
Espanyol are also in decent form and buoyed after winning at Levante in the Copa, but 13 of their 18 games have produced no more than two goals.
One or both teams not to score
2pts 4-5 general
Athletic are unbeaten in seven La Liga matches.
The Basques are also well rested having had no Copa del Rey commitments over the past fortnight. There are usually goals at the Anoeta and free-scoring Barca can play their part in a decent contest.
Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
1pt 4-5 Coral, Sky Bet
Sociedad’s nine home games have produced 36 goals.
