Las Palmas and Betis can serve up a treat

Eibar look decent value

A Real Betis fan gets in the mood
1 of 1

Sky Sports Football, from 3.15pm Sunday

Getafe v Valencia 3.15pm
It has been a tough week for Getafe with a pair of defeats to nil – at Espanyol in the league on Monday and at Alaves on Thursday in a Copa del Rey tie they had given up on after the first leg.

They have not kept a clean sheet in nine games and while no one turns them over easily, Valencia’s firepower ought to prove too much.

Recommendation
Valencia
2pts 7-5 general

Key stat
Valencia have scored 35 goals in their last 11 league and cup games.

Eibar v Espanyol 5.30pm
All 14 of Eibar’s points have been collected against teams who started the weekend outside the top eight so Espanyol should be right up their street.

Espanyol have failed to score in seven of their last 12 league matches and have managed only ten goals in total in 13 fixtures.

Recommendation
Eibar
1pt 7-5 Hills

Key stat
Espanyol have scored just two goals in six away matches.

Las Palmas v Betis 7.45pm
Matches involving these teams are rarely dull. Las Palmas’ matches average 3.2 goals per game and Betis games 3.8 so expect plenty of action.

Betis have lost their way of late with Thursday’s Copa del Rey humiliation at the hands of Cadiz making it five games without a win. Las Palmas have also gone five without a victory.

Recommendation
Over 2.5 goals
2pts 4-7 general

Key stat
Las Palmas have conceded at least two goals in each of their last eight league games.
