Atletico celebrate their win over Sevilla
1 of 1

Sky Sports from 11am, Sunday

Girona v Espanyol Sky Sports Mix, 11am
Europa League qualification remains a realistic target for Girona, who can claim their ninth home league win of the season against Espanyol.

The visitors should have enough points to stay away from the drop zone but Espanyol are short of confidence after a three-match losing sequence.

Recommendation
Girona
1pt 11-10 Betway

Key stat
Espanyol have failed to score in their last five matches.

Malaga v Real Sociedad Sky Sports Football, 3.15pm
Basement boys Malaga have been relegated with five games left and are unlikely to add to their 17-point total against Sociedad, who still have an outside chance of Europa League qualification.

La Real started the weekend as the fourth-highest scorers in the division and have netted three times more league goals than Malaga, who have the worst attack.

Recommendation
Real Sociedad
1pt 3-4 general

Key stat
Malaga have lost ten of their last 12 fixtures.

Las Palmas v Alaves Sky Sports Football, 5.30pm
Las Palmas have been in the drop zone since October and their fate will be sealed if they lose at home to Alaves.

An 11-match winless run has seen the Canary Islanders' survival hopes recede and the final nail in the coffin could be applied by fellow strugglers Alaves, who have won two of their last three matches.

Recommendation
Alaves
1pt 7-5 general

Key stat
Las Palmas have not scored more than one goal in any of their last 13 games.

Atletico Madrid v Real Betis Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Atletico Madrid's title hopes have gone but they are battling fierce rivals Real Madrid for second place and can boost their chances with a narrow win over Betis.

Diego Simeone may make changes with the Europa League trip to Arsenal in mind but his team's defensive strength should give them the edge over Betis, who are inconsistent on the road.

Recommendation
Atletico to win 1-0
1pt 5-1 general

Key stat
Atletico have kept clean sheets in all of their last ten home fixtures.
