We’re continuing our weekly La Liga predictions with a near-10/1 Sunday treble from the fourth round of fixtures in Spain’s top tier.
Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining competitions in Europe, this division is expected to provide plenty of thrills and spills again this term.
Eibar to beat Espanyol @ 91/100
Both of these teams have picked up just one point from their first three fixtures, but Eibar have shown far more encouraging signs. A Paulo Oliveira own goal proved costly in a 2-1 defeat at Mallorca, before a solid 0-0 draw at Osasuna was followed by a heart-breaking 3-2 loss at Atletico Madrid, where they led 2-0 but ultimately fell to a stoppage-time sickener. Espanyol have yet to score in this competition, losing 3-0 at home to Granada last time out, and seem distracted by their Europa League exploits.
Real Vallodolid and Osasuna to draw @ 2/1
Vallodolid will be playing at home for the first time this term due to development works at Estadio Jose Zorrilla and will be content with how they have fared on the road. Conceding a couple of late goals in a 2-0 loss at Levante was a setback, but Sergio Gonzalez’s side had previously claimed last-gasp strikes themselves in a 2-1 win at Real Betis and a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid. However, Osasuna are also going well and will be defending an unbeaten record following their 2-2 stalemate with Barcelona before the international break.
Celta Vigo to beat Granada @ 9/10
Fran Escriba did a fine job in steering Celta to safety after coming in late on last term and has enjoyed a solid start to the current campaign. Losing to Real Madrid first up was no disgrace and subsequent results have been promising, with a 1-0 triumph over Valencia at Balaidos followed by a 1-1 draw away to Sevilla. Denis Suarez has put a disappointing spell with Arsenal behind him and the return of Santiago Mina is another boost, as he links up with Iago Aspas up front, so Celta are worth keeping on side in our La Liga predictions.
