Mean Atletico defence may mean a tight Madrid derby

Sociedad sure to be positive in bid for victory over Girona

It was 0-0 when Atletico Madrid amd Real Madrid met at the Wand
1 of 1

Sky Sports Football unless stated, from 11am Sunday

Levante v Las Palmas 11am
Woeful travellers Las Palmas have now gone eight games without a win while you have to go back to September for their one and only road triumph.

They were pretty gutsy in defeat against Real Madrid last week, but seven away goals in 15 away La Liga games tells its own sorry story.

Recommendation
Levante
2pts 10-11 Betway, Hills

Key stat
Levante have been level at half-time in a La Liga-high 18 of their 30 matches.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Sky Sports Main Event, 3.15pm
It was 0-0 when these sides met at the Wanda in November and it is likely to be as tight in the rematch.

Atletico have lost their last two away La Liga games – at Barcelona and Villarreal – and have had two fewer days to rest than Real for a match which will go a long way to defining who finishes second.

Recommendation
One-goal winning margin
1pt 6-4 Betway

Key stat
Atletico have conceded a La Liga-best 14 goals this season.

Real Sociedad v Girona 5.30pm
There have been 69 goals in 15 La Liga matches at the Anoeta this season. Indeed, in 20 home matches in all competitions every game has produced at least two.

Five points from their last six matches is poor form but Real Sociedad will be positive against Girona in an attempt to return to winning ways.

Recommendation
Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
1pt 11-10 general

Key stat
Just eight of Sociedad’s 30 matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Valencia v Espanyol 7.45pm
There is no stopping Valencia and they can take care of an Espanyol side who have won just two of their last 13 in all competitions.

Valencia have won four in a row against Espanyol, who have failed to score in their last two matches.

Recommendation
Valencia to win to nil
1pt 27-20 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Valencia have taken 22 points out of the last 24 possible.
