LALIGA

LaLiga Week 4 predictions

1 / 10

Betis - Granada (Friday, 20.45) Prediction: home win

Betis picked up their first win of the season last weekend away at struggling Valencia, while Granada slipped to a second consecutive defeat at home to Eibar. Paco Jémez's side are in 17th and in desperate need of a result in Seville. That shoud play nice

Leganés - Barcelona (Saturday 13:00) Prediction: away win

There were zero obtainers of 15 correct results on the Spanish football pools last week precisely because of Alavés' incredible result in Camp Nou. Fellow new boys Leganés were brought back down to earth with a thud at Sporting, the Madrid side's first de

Atlético - Sporting (Saturday 16:15) Prediction: home win

Atlético got firmly back on track in Balaídos a week ago, thrashing a woeful Celta side 4-0 to climb into the top half of the table. The chaotic first exchanges of the season can be summed up by the sight of Sporting in third place after a cracking start

Eibar - Sevilla (Saturday 18:30) Prediction: draw

Eibar have won their last two matches to move into the top six while Sevilla are one of the three unbeaten sides in the division after three games. Unai Emery was always going to be a tough act to follow but Jorge Sampaoli has gone some way already to jus

Las Palmas - Málaga (Saturday 20:45) Prediction: home win

Málaga lost three experienced centre forwards during the summer (Roque Santa Cruz, Ikechukwu Uche and Dude Cop) and brought in part-time Barça striker Sandro and Michael Santos from River Plate. The latter has yet to feature and the former has yet to scor

Osasuna - Celta (Sunday 12:00) Prediction: draw

Celta are a shadow of the side that started last season in such fine form and Osasuna so far have lived up to the modest expectatations of a club with a total market value of less than 30 million euros. Celta have more resources at their disposal but it's

FUTBOL 16/17

Like Celta, Valencia are in hot water already. The white hankies are being washed and pressed for the next home game at Mestalla and Pako Ayestarán needs something out of Sunday's trip to San Mamés. Ayestarán was widely credited with being the brains behi

Villarreal - Real Sociedad (Sunday 18:30) Prediction: draw

An attractive game in El Madrigal between two sides who play some decent stuff without always getting the desired result. Villareal did a job on Málaga last weekend at La Rosaleda while Sociedad were held at home by Espanyol but this is the sort of match

Espanyol - Real Madrid (Sunday 20.45)

Zinedine Zidane's side sit top the pile after three games with the division's only perfect record and it is hard to see Espanyol undoing it with Real in such confident mood. Sporting Lisbon thought they'd pulled off a shock midweek only to be pegged back

Alavés - Deportivo (Monday 20:45) Prediction: draw

If Alavés can beat Barcelona at Camp Nou they are unlikely to be fazed by the visit of a Depor side who have managed just two goals so far this season, and both of those came on the opening day. Alavés remain unbeaten in their return to the top flight and
