The domestic action in Spain continues across the coming weekend, as all 20 La Liga teams are in action. There will be important games at both ends of the standings, and there could be some eye-catching selections to watch out for this weekend. You can find our latest picks for the sixth round of matches in La Liga right here.
Osasuna vs Sevilla
It hasn’t been an ideal start to the season for both Osasuna or Sevilla, with the latter sitting just outside of the relegation places on goal difference. Osasuna boasts an excellent record in this fixture as they have gone three without defeat against Sevilla, winning twice over that period.
However, Sevilla have encountered few issues in scoring in this fixture, as they have netted 14 in 15 matches. Osasuna have lost each of their previous two matches in La Liga, but they will be preferred to avoid a third straight defeat in the league for the first time since November 2021 on Saturday.
Girona vs Mallorca
The early game on Saturday will see Girona take on Mallorca. It has been an incredibly positive start to the new season for the hosts, and they come into this fixture chasing a fifth straight victory which would send them to the top of the league standings for a couple of hours at least.
Mallorca have a poor record in this fixture, as they have won just two of their eleven visits. Girona have recorded six wins over the same period. It is hard to overlook the progressive start to the season that Girona have made this term, meaning that we will be siding with them to continue their unbeaten start to the season.
Barcelona vs Celta Vigo
Barcelona have recovered well since a slow start to the new season. They come into their fixture on Saturday chasing a fifth straight victory, which could send them to the top of the La Liga standings. The Spanish champions boast an excellent record in this fixture, as they have won ten of their last 13 home matches against their rivals this weekend, averaging 3.7 goals per game.
Meanwhile, Barcelona have failed to score in just one of their last 54 home matches against Celta Vigo. That is a run that we don’t expect to end this weekend, as Barcelona looks the standout selection.
Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid
The standout fixture in La Liga this weekend will see the first Madrid derby of the season staged on Sunday. It has been an excellent start to the new season for Real Madrid, as they have won each of their opening five matches. Over that period, they have scored ten goals and have allowed just three.
Atletico have questions to answer on Sunday after dropping to a first defeat of the season last weekend. Real have been excellent over the opening month, and we could see them scoring a first big win of the campaign against their city rival.
