Espanyol vs Barcelona and Getafe vs Levante
After 32 rounds, Espanyol sit in the middle of table (10th) claiming a total of 42 points. Over the last 5 encounters they blundered several times, recording 3 draws and 2 wins. Although they will be playing at home against Barcelona, they don’t have a realistic shot against a side that boasts Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Bet365 has therefore assigned them outsider odds of 12.00 (11/1).
The Blaugrana team are first in the championship with 78 points and are primed to lift the title this year, if everything goes to plan and they continue their good run. Fierce rivals Real Madrid are in second with only 2 points less, so this next match and the following ones are of the essence. A win against Espanyol should be another routine game, for which they hold firm chances 1.25 (1/4), while a draw stands at a high 6.00 (5/1).
Getafe will square off against Levante at home on Saturday at 20:00 CET. The hosts find themselves in 13th spot in the league carrying 36 points. While playing on their own turf they recorded 6 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses. Overall, their form at home has seen them clinch 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw in the most recent game. online sportsbooks in Spain decided to award them favorite status 2.20 (6/5), an event that is quite likely.
Levante on the other hand have been assigned underdog chances 3.50 (5/2), as their standing and away record are quite bad. They sit in 16th position with only 29 points to their name. The travelling side also maintain one of the worst away results in the league (2 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses). Considering the stats of both sides, a tie between them two is also a possibility for the encounter, for which the odds are 3.20 (11/5).
Real Sociedad vs Villarreal and Almeria vs Eibar
Real Sociedad had to sell Antoine Griezmann last year to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, so now they are struggling to adapt without him. After 32 games in the competition they were able to record only 38 points, which granted them 13th position. Overall, their form has been pretty bad (2 losses, 2 draws and 1 win over the last 5 encounters). The odds for them succeeding against Villarreal are limited 2.90 (19/10), according to mobile sports betting sites.
The Yellow Submarine are favorites 2.50 (3/2) to win the clash, judging by their recent performances and a better overall squad. They occupy 6th place on the table after managing to collect 52 points in La Liga this season. Although they have disappointed their fans in recent games with negative results (3 draws and 2 losses), Villarreal should have the capacity to clinch a victory. A tie stands at 3.30 (23/10), which is a slightly less likely event.
Almeria will go head to head with Eibar at 17:00 CET this Sunday. The Andalusians are primed to win this match 2.20 (6/5), as they will have home field advantage. Despite being given favorite odds against their upcoming opponents, they currently occupy 17th position in the league. Only one place divides them from the relegation zone, while notching only 1 win and 4 losses in the last 5 encounters certainly doesn’t work in their favor.
Eibar have been just slightly luckier this season considering they sit in 15th position, claiming 31 points overall. While playing on the road they were able to win on 4 occasions, while the other encounters ended in 4 draws and 8 losses. mobile betting providers have decided to assign them odds of 3.60 (13/5), with a draw standing at a high 3.20 (11/5).
