Alaves v Leganes
Only six meetings at this level recently with four draws including all three in Alaves. Five of the six games were Under 2.5 goals. Neither are in great form, but Leganes did win 3-2 last week although they have yet to win away. Alaves home form is superior and they will be popular at 2.50. Alaves to win and trade out if they lead.

Real Sociedad v Barcelona
The only relevant head to head here are the ones in San Sebastian. This was a fixture that Barca did badly in for a few years but recent seasons they have won the last two and drawn the previous encounter. Barca have won nine of their last ten and Sociedad have not been as solid at home so far with one draw and two defeats in their seven games so far. Barcelona will be popular at 1.73 as will both teams to score at 1.57, but neither appeal as great value. This is a tough one but in the last two meetings here, Sociedad did lead at HT so laying Barca at 2.25 in the HT result market is a possible option and you could trade out if Soc lead.
Athletic Bilbao v Eibar
The last five head to head have all been Under 2.5 goals. Eibar have not won in the last seven of those games managing two draws. Eibar have lost their last four games scoring only once. Bilbao were beaten 3-2 away at Betis but had won four of their previous five. Bilbao have won six of their eight home games with just one defeat and five of those six wins were to Nil. On those stats Athletic to win to Nil at 2.62 is probably the best option.
Atletico Madrid v Osasuna
Just two recent meetings both of which Atletico won 3-0. Atletico were held 0-0 away at Villarreal last week and have now lost just once in twelve games, a home defeat to Barcelona. Osasuna drew 1-1 with Sevilla and have lost only twice in eight matches on the road this season. At 1.40 Atletico are a little short, but the most likely winners, however a small Lay at that price as a trading option looks the way to go.

Getafe v Valladolid
Only two recent meetings both ended in draws with the game at Getafe ending 0-0. Getafe have lost one in their last nine and have lost just once at home. Valladolid have had two consecutive 0-0 draws and are inconsistent, but they have lost only four of nine away, so they are doing something right. Under 2.5 is the obvious call but at 1.50 the bookies have that covered, so the 1.73 about a home win is a better trading option.
Celta Vigo v Mallorca
No recent head to head so it is all about current form and there is not a lot of that to go on. Mallorca have lost all seven away and Celta have lost four of eight at home, but at least Celta have a win and a draw in their last three games with Mallorca suffering three defeats on the bounce. Do not get heavily involved here and I could not put anyone off Mallorca breaking their duck on the road at 5.00. It might be worth chancing Over 2.5 goals at 2.10 as a trading angle as three of Celta’s last four games and Mallorca’s last six games all went over.
Sevilla v Villarreal
The last three head to head in Seville all ended in draws as did four of the last six overall meetings. On those stats we should Lay Sevilla at 1.66, but Villarreal have lost their last three away and have not won in six games. Under 2.5 goals at 2.20 as a trading option looks a fair price on recent evidence.
Valencia v Real Madrid
The last six head to head in Valencia all were Over 2.5 goals and both teams scored in all six games. In fact, in the last twelve overall meetings, only once has one of the sides failed to score. Both teams to score has been well found in the market, so at 2.50 as a trading option, Over 3.5 goals will give us opportunities.
