Fresh Karim Benzema can get the ball rolling for Real Madrid

Best bets in Spain

Malaga's Juanpi battles with Karim Benzema
1 of 1

Sky Sports from 11am Sunday

Eibar v Alaves Sky Sports red button, 11am
The Basque rivals have leaky defences and having each conceded 45 league goals, but their poor form in front of goal makes a goal-fest unlikely.

Only one of their six meetings has seen both teams find the net and the top scorer of either side, Munir of Alaves, has just seven league goals this term.

Liam Flin's recommendation
Under 1.5 goals
2pts 2-1 BetBright, Hills

Key stat
Eibar are winless in seven matches.

Getafe v Espanyol Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Getafe have lost four of their last five games but they look a value bet to beat Espanyol.

The shot-shy visitors have not scored in their last three games, while Getafe have scored more and conceded fewer than their Catalan oppenents.

Liam Flin's recommendation
Getafe
2pts 23-20 Betfair, Betway, Hills

Key stat
The last five meetings have been won by the home team.

Malaga v Real Madrid Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Real Madrid were put through the wringer before Cristiano Ronaldo's last-gasp penalty saw them to an aggregate success over Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday and Zinedine Zidane may rotate his team for the trip to rock-bottom Malaga.

Karim Benzema did not feature against Juve so should get his chance and the Frenchman usually does better away from the Bernabeu boo boys, scoring five of his nine goals on the road.

Mark Langdon's recommendation
K Benzema first goalscorer
1pt 11-2 Paddy Power

Key stat
Malaga have beaten Real Madrid just once in 34 meetings this century.
