Eibar's Fabian Orellana

Eleven Sports 1 from 5.15pm

Eibar v Huesca 5.15pm
Eibar ranked higher in La Liga's away table than in the home table last season, losing seven league fixtures at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium.

They won just two of their six meetings with last campaign's promoted sides and could be pushed by new boys Huesca, who scored the most away goals in the Segunda Division in 2017-18.

Recommendation
Huesca or draw double chance
1pt 5-4 bet365

Key stat
No team won more away games in the Segunda Division than Huesca last season.

Rayo Vallecano v Sevilla 7.15pm
The previous two meetings between these sides have featured a total of nine goals and there could be a goalfest when they lock horns on the opening day.

Both teams scored in three of Sevilla's final five matches last season and, following the loss of key players, backing goals rather than a victory for Pablo Machin's side could be the best bet.

Recommendation
Over 2.5 goals
2pts 4-5 bet365, BetBright, Betfair

Key stat
Only Valladolid scored more home goals than Rayo Vallecano in the Segunda Division last season.

Real Madrid v Getafe 9.15pm
Real Madrid's new era without Cristiano Ronaldo began with defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup and they could be made to work for victory at home to Getafe.

The visitors have scored in each of their last five meetings with Los Blancos and can notch at the Bernabeu. But the hosts, who lost just three home league matches last term, can take the spoils. 

Recommendation
Real Madrid to win and both teams to score
1pt 19-10 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Real Madrid conceded more home goals (20) than Getafe (13) last season.
