LaLiga predictions and results: Week 33

1 / 11

Levante (20) - Espanyol (15) Prediction: home win. Result Levante 2-1 Espanyol (1/1)

Every game from here on in is a must-win for The Frogs, who are five points adrift of 17th-placed Granada. Levante have taken five points from their last five games, a dynamic that if repeated over the remaining six will mean goodbye for Rubí's strugglers


Getafe (19) - Real Madrid (3) Prediction: away win. Result Getafe 1-5 Real Madrid (2/2)

Getafe are in serious trouble. And they have just sacked seasoned coach Fran Escriba and replaced him with Juan Esnaider, whose last managerial gig was at Córdoba in 2013. Like a kid with half a potato, this one does not pinta bien, as the Spanish saying

Las Palmas (10) - Sporting (18) Prediction: home win. Result Las Palmas 1-1 Sporting (2/3)

It wasn't that long ago that Las Palmas were precisely where Sporting currently find themselves. But Quique Setién has taken the Canary Islanders on an extraordinary run of six wins in seven games, their only loss coming against Real Madrid, when at least

Eibar (11) - Real Sociedad (9) Prediction: draw. Result Eibar 2-1 R. Sociedad (2/4)

The Basque mini-derby features two sides with neither relegation worries or European aspirations. It's a case of local pride and Eibar are due a win, having beaten only Levante since Valentine's day. The visitors' messy affair with David Moyes has been fu

Celta (5) - Betis (13) Prediction: home win. Result Celta 1-1 Betis (2/5)

Celta have an outside chance of a Champions League finish and Villarreal's run-in is about as appealing as a week in a skunk-filled submarine. The possibility of Celta and Marcelino's side swapping places before the end of the season can't be ruled out an

Málaga (8) - Athletic (6) Prediction: home win. Result: Málaga 0-1 Athletic (2/6)

Málaga have lost just four times since November while Athletic are starting to feel the pinch of an epic season that started in earnest in the Europa League qualifiers back in August. Top scorer Aritz Aduriz is out for The Lions after picking up an injury


Sevilla (7) - Deportivo (12) Prediction: draw. Result Sevilla 1-1 Depor (3/7)

Sevilla expended a fair amount of effort in the penalty shoot-out victory over Athletic on Thursday and would probably have preferred the evening kick-off for the visit of draw specialists Depor. Unai Emery's men haven't shared the spoils in the Sánchez P


Rayo (16) - Villarreal (4) Prediction: draw. Result: Rayo 2-1 Villarreal (3/8)

Villarreal will be suitably shot after their 4-2 victory in Prague on Thursday night that secured a glamour Europa League semi-final against Herr Klopp's Liverpool and may feel that their position in the league is comfortable enough to rest a few players


Atlético (2) - Granada (17) Prediction: home win. Result: Atleti 3-0 Granada (4/9)

Granada coach José González has performed miracles since replacing José Ramón Sandoval in February, picking up two wins and four draws from seven matches. Sporting showed the way against Atlético a few weeks ago, attacking on the break in numbers with spe


Barcelona (1) - Valencia (14) Prediction: draw. Result: Barcelona 1-2 Valencia (4/10)

Ay, Barcelona. A few weeks ago Luis Enrique's side were nailed on for the treble. Now even unofficial club spokesman Gerard Piqué has admitted doubts have started to creep in after one win in five matches -- and that one, against Atlético, pointless in th

Final score: 4/10

Not our best week at the old predictions, getting just 4 out of 10. And getting Real Madrid to win away to a woeful Getafe and Atleti to do the business at home to Granada was hardly difficult stuff. We did spot Barça were going drop points against Valenc
