Sky Sports, from 11am Sunday

Seville v Sporting Gijon Sky Sports 3, 11am
The international break came at a good time for Seville - allowing them to digest a poor run of results - and they can bounce back with an easy win over lowly Sporting.

Seville started the weekend in a strong position, nine points inside the Champions League qualification places, while Sporting are in the drop zone.

Seville are unbeaten in their last ten home matches.

Real Madrid v Alaves Sky Sports 2, 3.15pm
Three successive league wins have put Real Madrid back in charge of the La Liga title race and they can cement their leadership position at the expense of mid-table Alaves.

Free-scoring Real should have few problems taking the points but a consolation goal looks possible for Alaves, who have notched in away games at Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and Villarreal.

Real Madrid have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven games.

Valencia v Deportivo Sky Sports 2, 5.30pm
Relegation-threatened Deportivo have improved since appointing Pepe Mel as head coach just over a month ago and can hold Valencia to a drew at the Mestalla.

Valencia are having another difficult season and do not look a reliable odds-on bet to defeat Depor, who are anxious to climb further away from the drop zone.

Granada v Barcelona Sky Sports 1, 7.45pm
International breaks can be tricky periods for the big clubs but Barcelona might not have to fire on all cylinders to secure three points at Granada.

Lionel Messi is suspended, while Neymar and Luis Suarez were in South America earlier in the week and might not be at their best. But Barca should still be far too strong for Granada, who are on a three-game losing sequence and are in the relegation zone.
