Eleven Sports 2, from 11am Sunday

Huesca v Girona 11am
The positive vibes generated by Huesca's promotion have disappeared with a four-match losing sequence but Leonardo Franco's side can stop the rot with a draw against Girona.

Huesca are still searching for their first home goals and points of the season but have had two more days to prepare than Girona, who lost 1-0 at home to Betis on Thursday. 

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 23-10 bet365

Key stat
Girona have not lost any of their last five away games.

Villarreal v Valladolid 3.15pm
Uncharacteristically poor home results have been holding back Villarreal but the Yellow Submarines look worthy odds-on favourites against Valladolid.

Villarreal were impressive 3-0 winners at Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday and possess the necessary quality to unlock Valladolid, who have failed to score in four of their six matches this season.

Recommendation
Villarreal
2pts 4-7 general

Key stat
Villarreal have won five of their last six home league meetings with Valladolid.

Levante v Alaves 5.30pm
Lowly Levante are going through their worst run since appointing Paco Lopez in March and may suffer a fourth successive defeat against highflyers Alaves.

It has been a stunning start to the season for Alaves, who are unbeaten in five games, and they have won back-to-back away matches, including a 5-1 success at Rayo Vallecano last week.

Recommendation
Alaves
1pt 12-5 Betfair

Key stat
Levante have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five fixtures.

Real Betis v Leganes 7.45pm
Leganes came from behind to beat Barcelona 2-1 on Wednesday but they are still in the relegation zone and could remain there after taking on Betis.

Betis have impressed since making a slow start to the season. They deservedly won 1-0 away to Girona on Thursday and can complete a successful week.

Recommendation
Betis
1pt 4-6 general

Key stat
Betis have kept clean sheets in five of their last six matches.
