Real Madrid should make sure of victory

Real Betis players grapple with Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata
1 of 1

Sky Sports, from midday Saturday

Barcelona v Celta Vigo Sky Sports Football, midday
Barcelona showed the mentality of champions by grabbing a late equaliser in last Sunday's key match at Valencia and they are unlikely to be troubled anywhere near as much by mid-table Celta Vigo at Camp Nou.

Celta have not lost by more than one goal on their travels this season but that statistic may not survive the weekend.

Recommendation
Barcelona to win 3-0
1pt 7-1 general

Key stat
Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 19 matches.

Sevilla v Deportivo Sky Sports Mix, 5.30pm
Sevilla have to prepare for a vital Champions League match away to Maribor on Wednesday and can warm up for it in the best possible way by beating lowly Deportivo at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.

The Andalusians have dropped just two points in La Liga home games this season and have little to fear from Depor, who are winless in three league matches.

Recommendation
Sevilla-Sevilla double result
1pt 5-4 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Deportivo have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven games.

Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Athletic Bilbao have a reputation for being strong at San Mames but they crashed out of the Copa del Rey with an embarrassing 1-0 loss at home to third-tier Formentera on Wednesday and are unlikely to fare any better against Real Madrid.

It has been a tough season for Real but they are unbeaten in five and cannot afford many more mistakes in the title race.

Recommendation
Real Madrid to win 2-0
1pt 15-2 general

Key stat
Athletic Bilbao have not won any of their last seven domestic matches.
