LaLiga predictions – Barcelona face big test at Atletico Madrid while Real Madrid look to continue good run of form

It’s another busy weekend in Spain’s LaLiga. There is a full schedule of games to look forward with one particular highlight being the meeting of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona on Sunday night.

Here’s our brief preview of every single LaLiga game taking place over the coming days.

Celta Vigo Vs Real Valladolid

Key men: Denis Suarez (Celta Vigo); Oscar Plano (Real Valladolid)

Prediction: Celta Vigo 2 – 1 Real Valladolid

Home win for Iago Aspas and co to make it two wins in a row. A home win will mean Valladolid have suffered three consecutive defeats.

Alaves Vs Real Madrid

Key men: Joselu (Alaves); Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

Prediction: Alaves 1 – 2 Real Madrid

Real Madrid should take all three points at lowly Alaves. I think both teams will score but Real will be too strong and get the win in the end.

Real Sociedad Vs Eibar

Key men: Martin Odegaard (Real Sociedad); Fabian Orellana (Eibar)

Prediction: Real Sociedad 2 – 1 Eibar

Real Sociedad have been impressive so far this season. They should continue in the same manner with another win here against Eibar.

Mallorca Vs Real Betis

Key men: Ante Budimir (Mallorca); Nabil Fekir (Real Betis)

Prediction: Mallorca 2 – 1 Real Betis

Home win for Mallorca. Betis are yet to get going this season.

Valencia Vs Villarreal

Key men: Dani Parejo (Valencia); Gerard Moreno (Villarreal)

Prediction: Valencia 3 – 1 Villarreal

Valencia were involved in an enthralling encounter with Chelsea in the Champions League during the week. I think they’ll beat Villarreal at the Mestalla on Saturday.

Sevilla Vs Leganes

Key men: Luuk de Jong (Sevilla); Martin Braithwaite (Leganes)

Prediction: Sevilla 3 – 0 Leganes

Third-placed Sevilla play bottom-club Leganes and it will most likely end in a comfortable home win for Sevilla.

Athletic Bilbao Vs Granada

Key men: Raul Garcia (Athletic Bilbao); Yangel Herrera (Granada)

Prediction: Athletic Bilbao 2 – 1 Granada

Athletic Bilbao haven’t lost in four games, while Granada, after a brilliant start to the season, have now gone four without a win. Home win for the form team.

Espanyol Vs Osasuna

Key men: Victor Sanchez (Espanyol); Ruben Garcia (Osasuna)

Prediction: Espanyol 1 – 0 Osasuna

This could be a surprise win for Espanyol who are currently languishing in 19th position.

Getafe Vs Levante

Key men: Jorge Molina (Getafe); Borja Mayoral (Levante)

Prediction: Getafe 1 – 0 Levante

A close game to call but Getafe will probably get the win here.

Atletico Madrid Vs Barcelona

Key men: Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid); Lionel Messi (Barcelona)

Prediction: Atletico Madrid 2 – 3 Barcelona

LaLiga saved the best for last this weekend. This clash could be a cracker at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. Barcelona could lay down a real marker for the rest of the season with a win at Atleti.
