Sky Sports from 11am Sunday

Real Sociedad v Athletic Bilbao Sky Sports 3/Mix, 11am
Real Sociedad are looking to apply further pressure on Atletico Madrid in the battle to make La Liga's top four and they can do just that with a victory over Basque rivals Athletic Bilbao.

La Real have lost just three times at Anoeta this season and have a strong recent record in this fixture.

Joe Champion's recommendation
Real Sociedad

Key stat
Athletic Bilbao's last victory at Anoeta came in 2011.

Deportivo v Barcelona Sky Sports 2, 3.15pm
Barcelona players will be on cloud nine after their incredible fightback against Paris St-Germain and they can cap off the week with a victory at Deportivo – ensuring they stay at the top of La Liga.

Lowly Depor have gone three games without defeat under their new manager Pepe Mel but are taking on Barca at a difficult time.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Barcelona-Barcelona double result
1pt 3-4 Coral

Bet on this game at

Key stat
Deportivo have won one of their last 12 matches.

Celta Vigo v Villarreal Sky Sports 2, 5.30pm
Villarreal have conceded a league-low seven away goals and are unbeaten on their last six road trips, four of them with clean sheets.

They've also had a week off whereas Celta go into this match after an absorbing 90 minutes of Europa league action against Krasnodar on Thursday, when they nicked a last-gasp winner to take the first leg 2-1.

Bet on this game at

Key stat
Villarreal have lost only two of their last 13 league matches.

Real Madrid v Real Betis Sky Sports 1, 7.45pm
Real Madrid needed two late Cristiano Ronaldo goals to salvage a 3-3 draw with Las Palmas in their last home match but should have an easier time against lowly Betis, who are not quite safe from relegation.

Zinedine Zidane's side cannot afford many more slips in the title race but Betis are poor on the road and unlikely to give them a serious test.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Real Madrid win to nil
1pt 10-11 general

Key stat
Betis have lost six of their last eight away matches.
