Friday 10 July

Real Sociedad 15/20
Draw 26/10
Granada 38/10

Sociedad will aim to climb into the Europa League qualification zone as Valencia is closing in on them. Granada is far from qualifying for European competitions while they are also very far from relegation which basically means they have nothing much to play for. Get on Sociedad at 15/20.

Real Madrid 2/9
Draw 52/10
Alaves 11/1

Title-chasing Real Madrid are four points clear off Barcelona and need three wins to clinch La Liga. Alaves are at the bottom part of the league table, three points above 17-placed Mallorca and also come into this game with a winless streak of five consecutive defeats which is expected to continue. Back Real Madrid to win Both Halves at 15/10.

Saturday 11 July

Osasuna 21/10
Draw 21/10
Celta De Vigo 29/20

Osasuna have secured their spot and will play top flight next season. At the moment there is nothing much to play for and that gives the coach a chance to test the youngsters in preparation for next season as we might have a short pre-season. Celta Vigo are slowly climbing the table and need at least four points to confirm safety. Celta need this game more so back the visitors on a Win/Draw Double Chance at 7/20.

Valladolid 8/1
Draw 39/10
Barcelona 7/20

There’s a big possibility that Barcelona might start this game seven points behind leaders Real Madrid which now makes this match a must-win. The visitors haven’t been at their usual best since football returned and have been guilty of dropping points when it matters most – that has questioned their readiness for the UEFA Champions League mini tournament. Don’t complicate things, just back Barcelona on a straight win. 

Atl Madrid 5/10
Draw 31/10
Real Betis 6/1

Atletico Madrid will finish third on the table and having qualified for the quarter-finals of the UCL, this is a perfect opportunity for Coach Diego Simeone to get his players ready for the mini Champions League tournament which comes up in the next weeks. Real Betis have never really troubled the hosts and I don’t see them causing any upsets here. Back the home team to keep a clean sheet at 17/20.

Sunday 12 July

Espanyol 47/20
Draw 43/20
Eibar 5/4

Espanyol paid the price after going all out in the Europa League even though they don’t have a big squad to compete on Thursday’s and weekend. The hosts have been relegated and will play in Segunda Division next season. Eibar are still not 100% safe from the axe and will target points against a segunda bound team. Back Eibar to add more woes on Espanyol. 

Levante 5/2
Draw 9/4
Atl Bilbao 23/20

Athletic Bilbao will look to return to winning ways when they face a struggling Levante side that has nothing much to play for after surviving the axe. Bilbao can still qualify for European football and will target this game. Get on the visitors to win this match. 

Leganes 9/4
Draw 2/1
Valencia 27/20

Valencia visit another relegated team and their new coach will want to finish the season on a high and maybe secure a permanent deal. For Leganes, it’s all about preparing for Segunda Division. Back the visitors to win here.

Sevilla 4/10
Draw 36/10
Mallorca 13/2

Sevilla are unbeaten in the last 14 matches across all competition and a win here will not only confirm their spot in next season Champions League but will also relegate Mallorca. The visitors are desperate for points and their midweek win has given them a glimpse of hope. Back Sevilla to relegate Mallorca. 

Monday 13 July

Alaves 26/10
Draw 37/20
Getafe 5/4
Alaves and Getafe will square off on Monday in what promises to be an epic encounter. Both teams have something to play for, Alaves need points to survive relegation while Getafe need to secure their Europa League ticket. Back Both Teams to Score here at 13/10.

Villarreal 5/4
Draw 5/2
Sociedad 2/1

Villarreal are six points behind Sevilla and need nothing but a win here or else they miss out on Champions League football. Sociedad are pushing for Europa League spot which makes this clash an interesting encounter. Back both sides to find the back of the net at 6/10. 

Granada 6/1
Draw 34/10
Real Madrid 9/20

Everything looks to be going Real Madrid’s way at the moment including VAR decisions. Los Blancos have been benefiting a lot from VAR reviews and that has angered Coach Zinedine Zidane, saying pundits need to respect his team as they deserve everything they are getting. Captain Sergio Ramos is leading by example and he can’t stop scoring. Back the visitors to continue their impressive run. 

TREBLE @ 4/1
Sevilla Win  4/10
Eibar Win 5/4
Atletico Madrid Win 5/10
