Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla make up tasty Spanish treble
Coral offer an enhanced 7/2 on the all-Spanish treble of Real Madrid, who travel to Getafe, along with home wins for Athletic Bilbao against Espanyol and Sevilla against Valencia.
Getafe v Real Madrid
Title-chasing Real Madrid make the short trip to face neighbours Getafe and are 3/10 to leave with all three points.
Currently locked in a three-way battle for the La Liga crown with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won 14 of their last 15 matches in all competitions.
The same cannot be said of host Getafe though, who are without a win in nine games. Their last league victory came back in November. They are 8/1 to stop the rot here.
Getafe did manage to win last season’s corresponding fixture 2-1, and it is 9/2 for the first draw between the two sides since 2007.
With Cristiano Ronaldo serving the second of his three-match suspension, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema top the first goalscorers market at 11/4 each. Jese, who has scored on his last four starts, is next at 4/1.
Athletic Bilbao v Espanyol
In recent meetings between these two sides one thing has been guaranteed and that is goals.
At least three have been scored in the past seven games between Bilbao and Espanyol, with 21 goals coming in their last four encounters.
It is an odds-on 10/11 for the trend to continue with over 2.5 goals scored, with both teams to score at 19/20.
Bilbao are still unbeaten in La Liga at the new San Memes stadium and have won nine of their 12 home games. They are 4/7 to extend that record to 10 from 13.
Espanyol have struggled on their travels this season, having only won two of their 11 away matches. It is 9/2 for them to gain their third with the draw priced at 3/1.
Sevilla v Valencia
Seventh meets eighth at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan as the hosts Sevilla take on a team they have enjoyed facing there in recent times.
Sevilla have won 10 of their last 11 home matches against Valencia and they are 11/10 to extend that good run.
A 0-0 draw in November 2008 was the last time they failed to do so and it is 12/5 for the two sides to share the points here.
Before the home team’s recent dominance, Los Che had won three out of four on their travels to Sevilla and are 12/5 to gain a first win there since 2004.
Carlos Bacca and Ivan Rakitic both have 10 La Liga goals this term. You can back them at 5/1 and 7/1 respectively to score first.
Jonas is Valencia’s leading marksman so far this season with nine league goals, including two in the 3-1 victory over Sevilla at the Mestalla back in September. The Brazilian is 8/1 to score first and 9/4 at anytime.
