Sevilla vs Cordoba and Granada vs Ahtletic Bilbao

Sevilla are currently in 5th place with 42 points from 22 games played. Following their triumph in the Europa League last season, they have reluctantly sold their playmaker Ivan Rakitic to rivals Barcelona and have therefore been less creative this season which has seen them achieve lower than expected results. Over the course of the last 5 games they have notched 2 wins and as many as 3 losses, which is quote concerning for the defending Europa League champions.


Cordoba are far away from the perch of La Liga as they currently find themselves in the relegation zone occupying 19th position with 18 points. In the last 5 games they recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses, which is one of the main reasons why Bet365 has given them outsider odds of 10.00 (9/1). A draw between the two has been set at 5.00 (4/1), while a win for the favorites Sevilla stands at 1.33 (1/3).

Granada are the worst team in the Spanish league this season. In total they have notched only 3 wins, while the rest of the games ended in 8 draws and a staggering 10 losses. While playing at home they only managed to win on 2 occasions with the other encounters resulting in 5 draws and 3 losses. Online sportsbooks in Spain still have some confidence in them 2.90 (19/10) as their chances are not that much worse than their opponents Athletic Bilbao.


The visiting side have been dealt favorites odds 2.63 (13/8) due to their better standing in the league and better performance overall. While playing on the road they have secured 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses which is part of the reason why they stand in 13th place. Over the last 5 games they haven’t put on convincing displays as they recorded only 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses. Nevertheless, we believe that they should be able to win this upcoming match.

Malaga vs Espanyol and Valencia vs Getafe

Malaga used to be a promising force in Spanish football when investment from the East poured in for a while, however that ambition has now evaporated and they are struggling to enter the top position in the league. The Andalusian side sit 7th position with 35 points, and they managed to record 6 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses while playing on their home ground. The stats from home should provide them with extra confidence to succeed against Espanyol.


The Catalan club are 9th on the table with only 26 points accumulated so far. Their home record is decent, however whenever they have played away they couldn’t seem to make their presence known, which resulted in a record of 1 win, 2 draws and a staggering 7 losses while playing away. That is why Bet365 has decided to give Espanyol outsider chances 4.00 (3/1), while the home side have been given preferential odds 2.00 (1/1).

Valencia currently find themselves in 4th spot with 44 points and they are fighting hard to break into the top 3 on the table so they can automatically qualify for the Champions League next season. Over the last 5 matches they recorded 1 draw, 1 loss and an impressive 3 wins. While playing at home they won a massive 9 times, while the rest of the games ended in 1 draw and 1 loss.


Getafe sit in 14th and have an away record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses, which means that Valencia are the favored team among mobile betting providers. Bet365 has given the hosts odds of 1.44 (4/9), while a win for the Madrid club has been set at a high 7.50 (13/2). A draw 4.50 (7/2) is not likely as well, considering the results of both teams in recent times.
