Valencia are too lively for struggling Deportivo

Los Che in the hunt for second place

Sky Sports, from midday Saturday

Girona v Las Palmas Sky Sports Mix, midday
The outcome of this season looks inevitable for rock-bottom Las Palmas and a trip to a stubborn Girona is unlikely to trigger a change in their fortunes.

The visitors have picked up just four points from nine away matches, failing to score in seven of their road trips, and could find Girona, who toppled champions Real Madrid on their own patch earlier in the campaign, another determined obstacle. 

Recommendation
Girona
1pt 8-11 general

Key stat
Las Palmas have won just one of their last 27 away league matches.

Eibar v Atletico Madrid Sky Sports red button, 5.30pm
Atletico Madrid won four La Liga away games on the spin without conceding before losing 1-0 at Espanyol before Christmas and are very tempting at a shade of odds against to prevail against hosts Eibar for a seventh time in eight league and cup meetings.

However, at a slightly bigger price the value may lie in backing both teams to score at Estadio Municipal de Ipurua.

Eibar are unbeaten in seven league matches, winning six, and they have triumphed in their last four home games. Those tidy runs include a 2-1 success over high-flying Valencia.

Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men were kept quiet by Getafe but have netted 18 goals in the five league games either side of that 0-0 draw.

Recommendation
Both teams to score
1pt 19-16 188Bet

Deportivo v Valencia Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm
Valencia's title tilt faded out before the Christmas break but they showed there is still plenty of life left in them with victory against Girona last weekend and they can follow up by beating a relegation-threatened Deportivo.

Los Che are still in the hunt for second place and should prove too lively for the toiling hosts, who have won only three of their nine home league matches this term. 

Recommendation
Valencia
1pt 7-5 Betway

Key stat
Deportivo have conceded eight goals in their last three league games.
