Sky Sports Football, from 11am Sunday

Eibar v Deportivo 11am
Eibar have lost five of their first seven La Liga matches but they've faced tough opposition and will be expecting at least a point when Deportivo visit Iparua.

However, Eibar have struggled to score this season and may not punish any lapses from the Depor defence. Depor deservedly beat Getafe last time out at home but their away displays have been been poor and they have picked up just one point on the road. 

Recommendation
One or both teams not to score
1pt 11-10 general

Key stat
Eibar have scored just three goals in seven games this season.

Girona v Villarreal 3.15pm
Girona started the season with a home draw against Atletico Madrid and a win against Malaga but they have struggled since. They were dominated by Seville before being swept aside by Barcelona and visiting Villarreal will provide another tough test.

The Yellow Submarine ruthlessly sacked Fran Escriba last month but new man Javier Calleja has got some classy players at his disposal.

Recommendation
Villarreal
1pt 17-10 Betway

Key stat
Villarreal have lost one of their last seven matches.

Malaga v Leganes 5.30pm
Woeful Malaga have picked up just one point this season and they are no certainties to justify a short price against Leganes.

La Liga survival is the number one objective for the Madrid minnows but they are riding high in the top half of the table following three wins from their opening seven games.

One of those came away from home and it's worth taking a chance on them to upset the odds at La Rosaleda.

Recommendation
Leganes
1pt 27-11 188bet

Key stat
Malaga have lost six of their seven La Liga games this season.

Real Betis v Valencia 7.45pm
Real Betis and Valencia have designs on bettering last season's finishing positions after making strong starts to the season and these attacking sides could serve up a thriller in Seville.

Valencia's three away matches have produced 11 goals this season while fixtures involving Betis have featured the second-most goals of any La Liga team.

Recommendation
Over 3.5 goals
1pt 13-8 Paddy Power

Key stat
Matches involving Real Betis average 3.57 goals this season.
