Malaga may grab consolation in Atletico defeat
Sky Sports, from midday Saturday
Eibar remain in the hunt for a top-half finish and their only defeats since Christmas have come against the top four. They are less effective away from home but have the potential to frustrate a Villarreal side who have scored a modest 39 goals in 28 league games.

Ten of Villarreal's last 12 league games have featured under 2.5 goals.
Real Sociedad v Leganes Sky Sports 5, 5.30pm
Real Sociedad's success this season has been based on beating the weaker teams in the division and they have won 12 of their 13 matches against sides who started this round of fixtures in the bottom half.
Lowly Leganes could prove a tough nut to crack, however - their last three away results have been a draw at Seville and narrow defeats at Valencia and Barcelona - so the draw-Real Sociedad double result could be a decent play.

Leganes have conceded only two goals in their last five La Liga matches.
Malaga v Atletico Madrid Sky Sports 5, 7.45pm
Malaga's home form has been keeping them afloat - all six of their league wins have come on their own patch - so a run of four defeats in five at La Rosaleda is a major concern.
Things look unlikely to improve against Atletico Madrid although Malaga can at least get on the scoresheet. Their last two home losses were both by a 2-1 margin and they found the net in away defeats at Seville (1-4), Real Madrid (1-2) and Atletico (2-4) this season.
