We’re continuing our weekly La Liga predictions with a near-11/1 Saturday treble from the eighth round of fixtures in Spain’s top tier.
Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining competitions in Europe, this division is expected to provide plenty of thrills and spills again this term.
Leganes and Levante to draw @ 12/5
Basement dwellers Leganes got off to a poor start this season by suffering four straight defeats, but there have been signs of improvement. Mauricio Pellegrino’s side shared the spoils with Valencia and Athletic Bilbao before just going down by the odd goal at Granada. Levante have picked up all of their eight points on home turf but this is their best chance of securing a positive result on the road so far, so we’re hoping for a close contest at Butarque in our La Liga predictions.
Valencia to beat Alaves @ 53/100
Los Che must pick themselves up from Wednesday’s Champions League loss to Ajax, but that performance was not as bad as the 3-0 scoreline suggests. Things could have been much different if the usually dependable Daniel Parejo had not missed a penalty when the hosts were only trailing 1-0 and they also hit the woodwork at the Mestalla. Having previously won at Chelsea and Athletic Bilbao in a four-match unbeaten run, we’re sticking with Valencia against poor travellers Alaves.
Villarreal to win at Osasuna @ 5/4
The Yellow Submarines have built up some strong momentum in recent weeks, with a 5-1 rout of Real Betis giving them a third win in four matches, the only reversal being a narrow defeat at Barcelona. Villarreal are the leading scorers in La Liga, with star striker Gerard Moreno netting six of their 18 goals and former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla weighing in with four. Osasuna have been battling hard since returning to this level, picking up one win and five draws from seven outings, but we haven’t forgotten that they were crushed 4-1 and 3-1 by this weekend’s opponents when last meeting a couple of seasons ago.
