Fernando Torres can thrive up front for Atletico Madird
1 of 1

Sky Sports, from 5.15pm Saturday

Alaves v Barcelona Sky Sports Mix, 5.15pm
Unexpected transfers, injuries and defeats to Real Madrid mean it has not been a great few weeks for Barcelona and their visit to Alaves has the potential to be a tricky task.

Alaves lost 6-0 when Barca were at full throttle in February but they have lost one of their seven matches at home since, while Barca have kept clean sheets in just three of their last 13 league games.

Ian Wilkerson's recommendation
Both teams to score
2pts 42-41 188Bet

Bet on this game at soccerbase.com

Key stat
Only three of the last 22 visitors to Alaves have scored more than one goal.


Girona v Malaga Sky Sports Football, 7.15pm
Girona started the campaign with a very encouraging 2-2 draw at home to Atletico Madrid and will be targeting a maximum return against Malaga.

There is early pressure on Malaga after Monday's 1-0 loss at home to Eibar but they are capable of playing a lot better and can hold their own against the La Liga new boys.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Draw
1pt 40-17 188Bet

Bet on this game at soccerbase.com

Key stat
Malaga have won just two of their last 22 away league fixtures.


Las Palmas v Atletico Madrid Sky Sports Football, 9.15pm
It is difficult to be confident that Las Palmas will hold Atletico at bay or make much of an impression themselves given they have scored just one goal in their last six La Liga outings.

It should be an enjoyable trip to Gran Canaria for Diego Simeone's outfit, who have lost just twice in their last 24 league games, even without suspended striker Antoine Griezmann.

Fernando Torres is capable of thriving in the Frenchman’s absence

Ian Wilkerson's recommendation
F Torres first goalscorer
1pt each-way 11-2 bet365

Key stat
Las Palmas have lost eight of their last 11 La Liga matches.
