Another busy weekend of La Liga action takes place this coming weekend. However, it will be a perfect opportunity for Barcelona to stretch their advantage as Real Madrid are away competing in the FIFA Club World Cup. But, which sides will pick up victories this weekend?
Cadiz vs Girona
The action in Spain gets underway on Friday evening. It will be a huge game for the hosts, as they could move out of the bottom three with a third win in eleven. Meanwhile, Girona will be looking for a second straight win. However, the preference is for the hosts.
Almeria vs Real Betis
Real Betis have lost their previous two coming into this fixture, but a victory would move them back into the top six. Almeria have been difficult to beat in recent weeks, as they have lost just once in four. A draw could be a likely outcome this weekend.
Sevilla vs Mallorca
Sevilla remain in trouble this term, as they sit 16th in the standings. However, their recent form has picked up with wins in three of their previous five. Mallorca will be the away side this weekend, and they have also won three of their last five. However, we could see Sevilla getting the win on Saturday.
Valencia vs Athletic Bilbao
Valencia also find themselves in deep trouble coming into this weekend, as they sit 17th in the standings. They have lost each of their previous three. This could be a bad time to come up against Bilbao, as they rediscovered their form last weekend with a hard-fought success.
Getafe vs Rayo Vallecano
Getafe remain planted in the bottom three positions in La Liga after suffering four defeats in their last five. A chance will be taken on Vallecano to pick up an away win this weekend, as they go in search of a third straight victory in La Liga.
Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid appear to have rediscovered their form in La Liga, as they have won two of their previous four, and are yet to suffer a loss in that period. However, Celta Vigo will pose a challenge this weekend after winning their last two. A draw could be a profitable selection.
Real Valladolid vs Osasuna
Real Valladolid come into this game after picking up back-to-back wins in the league. Osasuna is winless in their previous three, but they have lost just once in five league outings. A competitive game looks on the card, but the preference is for the in-form hosts.
Villarreal vs Barcelona
Barcelona could stretch their advantage at the top of the La Liga standings to ten points with victory this weekend. They have won their previous five, and are playing excellently. Villarreal has lost their previous two, which means the preference is for the Catalonian visitors.
Espanyol vs Real Sociedad
Espanyol will be looking for a return to winning ways after failing to claim victory in their previous two. Meanwhile, Sociedad has also failed to win in two, but their additional quality in the final third means that they remain the pick to claim victory this weekend.
