• Atletico Madrid favorites against Espanyol away
• Valencia will face a test against La Coruna at home
• Rayo Vallecano will receive a visit from Granada
Later in the evening Rayo Vallecano will try to bounce back from their last week’s defeat to Barcelona by playing Granada at home. Athletic Bilbao will try to improve their standing in the league against Celta Vigo at home, a side that are almost as good as the home team.
Valencia vs La Coruna and Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid
Valencia sit in 4th position at the moment as they claim a total of 54 points. Over the last 5 encounter they recorded a pretty nice run of victories notching 4 wins before drawing a blank against Atletico Madrid away last weekend. At home they maintain one of the best records in La Liga (11 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss), so it makes sense that Bet365 decided to award them favorite status 1.40 (2/5).
La Coruna are the obvious outsiders 8.00 (7/1) for this match due to their standing and poor performance in the competition. They stand in 16th spot with an overall 25 points and their form being quite concerning (3 losses, 1 draw and 1 win in the last 5 games). On the road they have recorded 2 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses, so the most that the can hope to achieve for this game is a draw, which has been set at 4.75 (15/4).
Espanyol is preparing to face the current defending champions at home and judging by their recent performances in the league they will encounter a rather challenging time. Mobile betting sites have given them odds of 4.00 (3/1) to capture the 3 points, however that does not seem very likely despite the fact that they won 7 games at home and only tied and lost 3 apiece.
Although Diego Simeone’s men have been pretty good this season, their away results have been lackluster (6 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses). This fact might give the Catalan side some hope for the match, however Atletico will probably emerge as the winners 2.10 (11/10), per Bet365. A draw between the two teams has been set at 3.10 (21/10), an event that is not very likely.
Rayo Vallecano vs Granada and Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao
Rayo Vallecano just recently suffered a great loss of 6-1 against Barcelona, so they will be aiming to impress in front of their home fans. While playing on their home turf they managed to win only on 4 occasions, while the rest of encounters resulted in 1 draw and 7 losses. Nevertheless, Bet635 has decide to give them preferential odds 2.00 (1/1) for the game against Granada on Saturday evening.
The visiting side have been assigned unfavorable chances 4.00 (3/1) as they are the team that is facing relegation to the Segunda Division finding themselves in 19th position. So far this season they could only muster up 22 points and over the last 5 matches they lost 3 times and tied once while their most recent game ended in a win against Malaga. A draw may be likely for the upcoming game and it stands at 3.30 (23/10).
Celta Vigo will clash with Athletic Bilbao on Saturday night in a match that seems quite uncertain. Both sides are known to blunder on occasion so anything can happen during the game. Online sportsbooks in Spain favor the hosts to win 2.10 (11/10), as they will be playing at home, despite maintain an uncertain record (5 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses).
Athletic Bilbao are no longer the same side that they were a few years ago. They stand in 8th place, one position above their upcoming opponents. On the road they have sealed 4 wins, 3 draws and a great 6 losses, so it makes sense that Bet365 branded them as underdogs 3.40 (13/5) for the match. A tie between them stands at 3.40 (12/5), an event that is also likely to happen.
