Its a busy time for some La Liga teams combining league, Copa del Rey and European action. We have some excellent opportunities over the weekend and I start with the visit of Espanyol to the Anoeta Stadium.
Real Sociedad v Espanyol
There has been slight improvement for Real Sociedad since David Moyes took over. Real Sociedad won a marvellous game 4-3 against Sevilla in previous home match. I like the goal markets in this contest with both teams to score (Yes) at an attractive price . 8 out of 13 home matches have seen both sides find the net. Espanyol have found the net in 9 out of 12 away league matches s they will carry a threat. Take the evens (2.0) about both teams finding the net.

Villarreal v Celta Vigo
Villarreal have been wonderfully consistent this season.They rarely dip below a set standard and they were excellent in gaining a point at the Bernabeu last weekend. I watched them beat Celta Vigo away from home earlier in the season. They were happy to let Celta have the ball for long periods and hit them on the counter attack. They have won their last 7 home matches , 6 of them without conceding. Celta Vigo are talented but inconsistent and can beat anyone on their day but Villarreal should be able to manage their threat. Take the home win here at 20/21 (1.98).
