Match previews for this weekend’s LaLiga action

LaLiga returns tonight and there are some interesting matchups to look forward to over the whole weekend.

Time to sit back and enjoy these games after last week’s international break.

Levante Vs Mallorca

Key men: Jose Campana (Levante); Ante Budimir (Mallorca)

Prediction: Levante 2 – 1 Mallorca

Levante won their last home game 3-1 against Barcelona. They should continue their recent run of good form with another three points here.

Leganes Vs Barcelona

Key men: Martin Braithwaite (Leganes); Lionel Messi (Barcelona)

Prediction: Leganes 1 – 3 Barcelona

Barcelona to win. Messi and co are locked in a battle for the top spot with rivals Real Madrid so far this season. They should win comfortably.

Real Betis Vs Valencia

Key men: Nabil Fekir (Real Betis); Dani Parejo (Valencia)

Prediction: Real Betis 2 – 2 Valencia

This should be a very entertaining game. Expect a score draw between two good footballing sides.

Granada Vs Atletico Madrid

Key men: Yangel Herrera (Granada); Koke (Atletico Madrid)

Prediction: Granada 1 – 1 Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone’s side has only lost one LaLiga game this season, yet too many draws have been the team’s problem. I’m afraid it could be another draw at Granada this weekend for Atleti.

Real Madrid Vs Real Sociedad

Key men: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid); Martin Odegaard (Real Sociedad)

Prediction: Real Madrid 3 – 2 Real Sociedad

Real Madrid to win but it won’t be easy. Real Sociedad have impressed so far this season and they won’t be afraid to take the game to Real at the Bernabeu.

Espanyol Vs Getafe

Key men: Victor Sanchez (Espanyol); Jaime Mata (Getafe)

Prediction: Espanyol 1 – 1 Getafe

Espanyol are 19th in LaLiga after a very poor start to the campaign. They should get at least a point from this game with Getafe, though.

Osasuna Vs Athletic Bilbao

Key men: Ruben Garcia (Osasuna); Raul Garcia (Athletic Bilbao)

Prediction: Osasuna 1 – 1 Athletic Bilbao

Osasuna are unbeaten in their last four games. Athletic Bilbao will provide formidable opposition for the home side this weekend.

Eibar Vs Alaves

Key men: Fabian Orellana (Eibar); Joselu (Alaves)

Prediction: Eibar 2 – 1 Alaves

Alaves have struggled on the road recently and I think they’re in for another defeat at the hands of Eibar on Sunday.

Villarreal Vs Celta Vigo

Key men: Gerard Moreno (Villarreal); Denis Suarez (Celta Vigo)

Prediction: Villarreal 2 – 1 Celta Vigo

Celta Vigo have lost five LaLiga games on the trot while Villarreal are unbeaten at home. Villarreal to take all three points.

Real Valladolid Vs Sevilla

Key men: Oscar Plano (Real Valladolid); Lucas Ocampos (Sevilla)

Prediction: Real Valladolid 1 – 1 Sevilla

Sevilla haven’t lost in seven games in all competitions but Real Valladolid have yet to lose at home this season. I think but runs will continues after a draw in this game on Sunday night.
