They will next play against Celta Vigo away where they will be aiming to clinch another win. And finally we will also take a look at the encounter between Eibar and Elche.
Almeria vs Real Sociedad and Rayo Vallecano vs Villarreal
Almeria are bit of a mystery to many teams in La Liga. They recorded an equal number of losses at home and away (6), but when it comes to wins they only managed to clinch a victory once while playing at home whereas on the road they win 5 times. So they are an obscure team that can achieve any result at any time, which is why Bet365 has decided to give them odds of 2.70 (17/10).
They will go up against Real Sociedad at home on Friday evening, so fan will have a great show right before Valentine’s Day commences on Saturday. The visiting side currently stand in 12th position with 23 points from 22 games and they maintain an away record of 0 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. Bet365 couldn’t come to a conclusion on whom to favor for then win and has therefore given Real Sociedad the same odds as Almeria 2.70 (17/10), while a draw is 3.20 (11/5).
Rayo Vallecano will host Villarreal at home on Sunday evening and judging by their recent results over the last 5 games (1 win and 4 losses), they are not viewed as favorites to win. The Madrid side are all the way down in 15th place with 23 points with their home record being 2 wins, 1 draw and a staggering 7 losses. Mobile betting sites in Spain have reserved feeling about they can accomplish during the match, setting their chances at 3.30 (23/10).
Villarreal on the other hand have experienced a slight resurgence in recent times which has seen them clinch 6th position on the table. While playing away they have managed to win an 4 times, however they have blundered on other occasions which resulted in 5 draws and 2 losses. Nevertheless, Bet365 has decided to give them preferential odds 2.20 (6/5) for the upcoming encounter against Rayo Vallecano, with a draw being 3.40 (12/5).
Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid and Eibar vs Elche
Celta Vigo were hoping that they could possibly claim a position a little higher than they currently occupy (10th spot), however a string of bad results has lead them to where they are now. While on their home ground they have put on some disappointing performances which resulted in 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. Their chances to win the upcoming games against Tletico Madrid are quite limited 4.00 (3/1).
The current defending La Liga champions are in 3rd place with a total of 50 points, 4 points behind leaders Real Madrid and only 3 behind second-placed Barcelona. Their home results are very impressive (10 wins, 1 draw and only 1 loss) and due to this Bet365 has earmarked them to win the game 2.05 (). However, when speaking in terms of clinching another league title Atletico do not possess the same fearsome factor that they enjoyed last season.
Elche will go head to head with Eibar away and looking at the individual record of both sides, this game could possibly go in either way at any time. Eibar are the team that currently stand in 8th place with a total of 27 points and have a home record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. Online sportsbooks in Spain do not hold them in high regard, while Bet365 has assigned them favorable odds 2.15 (8/7).
Elche are quite different from their upcoming opponents, as they find themselves in 17th place with only a single position dividing them from the relegation zone. During the last 5 matches they lost 2 times and won 3 games, however Bet365 doesn’t not believe they have the capacity to win against Eibar, giving them limited chances 3.80 (14/5). A draw has been set at 3.10 (21/10), an event that may also happen.
