Madrid rivals could be tough to separate at the Bernabeu

Soaring Sevilla set for another success

1 of 1

Eleven Sports, from midday Saturday

Sociedad v Valencia Eleven Sports 1, midday
Valencia remain winless this season but they have at least been draw specialists, sharing the spoils in five of their six La Liga matches, and Los Che can remain competitive away to Sociedad.

There has been little in Sociedad's form to suggest they will come out on top and the hosts have conceded in every game except a 1-0 win at Huesca this season. 

Recommendation
Valencia +0.25 Asian handicap
1pt 19-20 bet365

Key stat
The teams' last four meetings have produced 18 goals.

Eibar v Sevilla La Liga TV, 5.30pm
Sevilla were humiliated 5-1 at Eibar last season but they look a different beast now and will be flying after Wednesday's sensational 3-0 victory over Real Madrid. 

That made it 14 goals scored in their last three matches and Sevilla's front two of Andre Silva and Wissam Ben Yedder can help them to dish out consecutive defeats to Eibar, who lost at Espanyol last time out. 

Recommendation
Sevilla
1pt 5-4 general

Key stat
Sevilla have scored in seven of their eight games against Eibar.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Eleven Sports 1, 7.45pm
The atmosphere will be white hot at the Bernabeu for the Madrid derby and it could finish level between Real and Atletico with neither side right at the top of their game.

Real need to recover from the shock of Wednesday's humbling 3-0 defeat at Sevilla and they also have a couple of crucial injury concerns, while Atletico are grinding their way into form with successive La Liga clean sheets.  

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 5-2 general

Key stat
The last three Madrid derbies have been draws after 90 minutes.
