There are some interesting matchups in Spain’s top-flight this weekend. The Valencia derby is likely to dish up plenty of drama, while I’m expecting lucrative away wins for Getafe and Sevilla. Let’s get stuck into the best bets for this weekend’s La Liga fixtures.
Levante vs. Valencia – 12/7/19
Levente and Valencia face off in the Derby del Turia on Saturday and it’s set to be a thriller. Both sides have been very inconsistent so far this season, but form often goes out the window when these two teams meet. Valencia are 8th on 23 points, while Levante are three places below with 20 points to their name. Valencia have a goal difference of 1, while Levante’s is –3. Given the nature of the game, and considering the team’s respective goalscoring records, I’m expecting to see a high-scoring encounter. Over 2.5 goals looks likely.
Pick: Over 2.5 Goals – 1.60
Eibar vs. Getafe – 12/8/19
Eibar come into this game on the back of four straight defeats. They have conceded exactly four goals in three of their last four games and now possess the second-worst defensive record in the division. On the other hand, Getafe are on an unbeaten run of five league matches. Three wins and two draws have seen Getafe climb to 7th in the table and they are certainly one of La Liga’s in-form teams. Due to Getafe being the away side in this fixture, odds of 2.80 for a Getafe win seem too good to miss.
Pick: Getafe to Win – 2.80
Osasuna vs. Sevilla – 12/8/19
Sevilla have moved to within a point of league-leaders Barcelona and Real Madrid following a string of impressive results. They have won five of their last seven league games and have drawn the other two in that time. Osasuna are eight points behind Sevilla in 9th place. They have a record of W5/D7/L3 in La Liga this season – underlining their unpredictability. Just like the previous game I featured; I’m backing the away side to come out on top in this fixture. Sevilla are in fantastic form right now, so it’s hard to ignore odds of 2.10 here.
Pick: Sevilla to Win – 2.10
