Villarreal may struggle to hit the ground running

Enes Unal has joined Villarreal
1 of 1

Sky Sports Football, from 7.15pm Monday

Levante v Villarreal 7.15pm
Villarreal have spiced up their ranks with some exciting arrivals but they may take time to find their stride and a trip to newly-promoted Levante is no easy challenge.

The hosts dropped just nine points on home soil during their title-winning campaign, bouncing back to the top flight at the first time of asking, and Villarreal have failed to win their opening game in the past two seasons.

Recommendation
Levante or draw double chance
1pt 8-13 general

Bet on this game at Soccerbase.com

Key stat
Levante have lost just two of their last ten La Liga home games.


Malaga v Eibar 9pm
Malaga finished last season with a rattle, losing just two of their final nine La Liga games, and they can get the 2017-18 campaign off to the perfect start with victory over Eibar.

Jose Luis Mendilibar's visitors finished eight points ahead of Malaga last term but they have lost some key individuals, most notably the defender Florian Lejeune, who has gone to Newcastle, and they managed just four wins on their travels last season.

Recommendation
Malaga
1pt 6-5 general

Bet on this game at Soccerbase.com

Key stat
Malaga have not lost in six home meetings with Eibar.
