Real test for La Liga leaders Madrid

1 of 1

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Sky Sports 2, 3.15pm

Two of this season's three meetings between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have been draws and the points could be shared at the Vicente Calderon.

Barcelona have had the benefit of a free midweek but may struggle to get the better of Atletico, who were impressive 4-2 winners away to Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Draw
1pt 5-2 188Bet

Key stat
Atletico have lost one of their last 28 La Liga home matches


Athletic Bilbao v Granada Sky Sports 2, 5.30pm
Stunned by Apoel in the Europa League on Thursday, Athletic Bilbao are unlikely to find it any easier against a resurgent Granada.

A home banker a few weeks ago, Granada have picked up two wins in their last three games including an impressive 4-1 win against Betis. Granada are yet to win on the road but can profit from Athletic's Euro hangover by nicking a precious point.

Steve Davies's recommendation
Draw
1pt 7-2 general

Key stat
Granada have failed to keep an away clean sheet in 12 months


Villarreal v Real Madrid Sky Sports 1, 7.45pm
Real Madrid will look to bounce back from the disappointment of losing in Valencia on Wednesday but this is a tricky trip against a Villarreal side who have tested all of La Liga's big clubs this term.

The Yellow Submarine, who picked up a point in the reverse fixture, have held Seville and Barcelona at home this season and beaten Atletico Madrid so they should play their part in a decent match.

Mark Langdon's recommendation
