Atletico v Eibar Eleven Sports 1, noon
Atletico Madrid have had a mixed start to the season but they should be too strong for Eibar at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium where they have lost one of 20 league games.

Tuesday's Champions League match away to Monaco could be a distraction for Atletico but they shouldn't be too concerned about Eibar, who lost 2-0 to Getafe on their last road trip.

Atletico to win 2-0
1pt 5-1 bet365

Key stat
Atletico have kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 La Liga home fixtures.

Valencia v Betis La Liga TV, 5.30pm 
Betis will be on a high after beating rivals Sevilla 1-0 in their last fixture and they can follow it up by holding Valencia to a draw at the Mestalla.

The pressure is mounting on Valencia who have no wins in three games and they look poor-value favourites to overcome such dangerous opponents.

1pt 14-5 general

Key stat
Betis have lost just two of their last seven away games.

Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Eleven Sports 1, 7.45pm
Real Madrid have not been seriously tested in their opening three matches but that could change when they come up against Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

Athletic held Los Blancos to a pair a draws last season and they should be feeling reasonably confident after taking four points from two games.

Key stat
Real Madrid have not kept a clean sheet in their last six away matches.
