Matchday 20 in LaLiga gets underway on Friday, and there promises to be an exciting weekend of action in Spain’s top-flight. Barcelona will be looking to strengthen their advantage over their summit, while Real Madrid will desperately be searching for a win on the road against Mallorca.
Athletic Bilbao vs Cadiz
The weekend kicks off in Bilbao, as the hosts look to end a three-game losing run on Friday night. Cadiz is the visitor, as they look for a third win in five LaLiga fixtures. This should be a cagey fixture, and a chance could be taken on the draw at 34/10.
Espanyol vs Osasuna
Saturday’s action in LaLiga gets underway with Espanyol’s home game against Osasuna. The hosts have won two of their previous three, but their defeat last time was their first in five. Osasuna has won just one of their previous five, and a return to winning ways for the hosts could be on the agenda.
Elche vs Villarreal
Villarreal could close in on the top four this weekend with a fourth victory in six games. They would appear good value to achieve that target as Elche is yet to pick up a league win this term, picking up just six points from 19 games.
Atletico Madrid vs Getafe
It hasn’t been an ideal campaign for Atletico to this point, but they still sit in the top four in the LaLiga standings. They have won their previous two, and we expect them to maintain that winning run against Getafe side that has lost their last four.
Real Betis vs Celta Vigo
The late game in La Liga on Saturday comes from Betis. The hosts will be looking to bounce back after suffering a second defeat in three last week. Meanwhile, Celta Vigo will be confident after winning their previous game. We could see a score draw this weekend.

Mallorca vs Real Madrid
Real Madrid’s grip on the LaLiga title could be weakening, as they have won just once in their previous three games. This could be a testing fixture on the road, but we expect them to claim the points, as Mallorca has lost two of their last three games.
Girona vs Valencia
Valencia parted ways with Gennaro Gattuso this week, as the club have lost three of their last four. Further misery could be on its way this weekend, as the hosts have lost just twice in their previous five domestic matches in the league.
Real Sociedad vs Real Valladolid
Valladolid picked up a rare win in their previous fixture, but they remain just a point outside the relegation places. Sociedad has been excellent throughout the season, and it could be a routine win for the hosts this weekend.
Barcelona vs Sevilla
The standout match this week comes from the Nou Camp. Barcelona has lost just once all season, and come into this fixture after winning their previous four. Sevilla has won their previous two, but we find it hard to oppose the league leaders on Sunday.
Rayo Vallecano vs Almeria
Vallecano are flying high in LaLiga this term, and they could move into the top six this weekend. However, Almeria will be confident after a recent win in the league. Regardless, the preference remains for the in-form hosts.
