Leg 1 - Rayo Vallecano vs Granada - Rayo Vallecano Over 17.5 shots @ 13/10

We kick things off in Vallecas where Rayo Vallecano have a crucial home game against already relegated Granada. Iñigo Pérez’s side currently have a six point cushion on the relegation zone with only three to play, but they face top five opposition in their final two games, which makes Wednesday evening their best opportunity to secure safety.

Rayo’s problem all season has been putting the ball in the net. Their main strikers Sergio Camello and Raúl de Tomás have a miserable combined total of just four league goals. Things got so bad that Pérez handed 38-year-old Radamel Falcao a first start of the season in their last home game against bottom club Almería.

That match summed up Rayo’s season to a large extent. They had 27 shots in the game but failed to score, with visiting keeper Luís Maximiano making 10 saves as Almería surprisingly won 1-0.

Excluding their big problems in the final third, there’s not too much wrong with Rayo. They defend reasonably well and their build-up play remains quite strong. They average 12.7 shots per game which is the joint sixth most in La Liga and more than the likes of Girona, Villarreal, Athletic Club and Real Sociedad.

They are not a team that’s afraid to shoot from range and it was long range strikes that did the damage in their most recent victory, a 2-1 home win against Osasuna when they had 17 attempts.

Up against a Granada side that was relegated at the weekend and is expected to ring the changes after losing 4-0 to what was effectively Real Madrid’s B team, this feels like a game that Rayo should be the dominant force in again.

Given their problems scoring goals though, a punt on Rayo Vallecano Over 17.5 shots at 13/10 may offer more value than backing them to win the game outright at short odds.

Leg 2 - Sevilla vs Cadiz - Youssef En-Nesyri to score anytime @ 6/5

Cádiz are the side currently in 18th place and they can blow the relegation scrap wide open if they manage to win in Seville in a game that kicks off at the same time as the Rayo Vallecano match.

They are five points from safety, so Mauricio Pellegrino really needs to send his team out to win this one, easier said than done when you haven’t won an away game all season.

There was a vital win for Cádiz at the weekend as they beat Getafe 1-0 at home, but this is a much tougher match against a Sevilla side that has won four of their last six to remove any lingering relegation fears of their own. Key to that run has been striker Youssef En-Nesyri who

has scored 10 goals in 13 appearances in La Liga since returning from AFCON duty with Morocco in January.

That includes five in his last five after a brace against Villarreal at the weekend and he’s clearly on the very top of his game right now. With Sevilla set to miss out on Europe and likely to need to sell players this summer, he’s likely to be on many a Premier League shopping list.

While En-Nesyri didn’t train earlier this week, there is no suggestion that he will miss this game, particularly with fellow striker Isaac Romero sidelined. It’s pretty clearly in the best interests of the club and the player that he keeps starting and scoring goals with his market value rising with each passing week at the moment.

Up against a limited Cádiz side that will at some point need to gamble and chase goals in this match, there should be space for Sevilla to exploit and their 26-year-old forward, who has scored 32% of his team’s league goals this term, is by far the most likely beneficiary.

On current form, he may only need a sight of goal to get on the scoresheet and I’m backing Youssef En-Nesyri to score anytime at 6/5.

Leg 3 - Las Palmas vs Real Betis - Away Win @ 19/20

We move to Thursday for the final leg of this matchday 36 La Liga acca and a game that according to the form book at least, should only produce one outcome.

Las Palmas are in absolute free-fall. They’ve lost eight on the bounce in the league to slide down the table from the fringes of the European race to the edge of the relegation scrap.

The reality is that their season is as much about overachievement up until their last win against Valencia in February, as it is underachievement now. Even when things were going well, they were not creating many chances with their possession-based football often a tough watch.

Goalkeeper Álvaro Valles was key to a lot of their good results earlier in the campaign and while the likes of Sergi Cardona, Kirian Rodríguez and Mika Mármol have shown they belong at this level, they are desperately short on quality in the final third and a goal tally of just 30 in 35 games is testament to that.

They look like a side that has been ready for their summer break for the best part of two months and Real Betis are well-equipped to take advantage. The visitors are one of the few teams in the division that is still in a real fight for something, with little to choose between themselves and Real Sociedad in the battle for 6th place and Europa League qualification.

Motivation certainly won’t be a problem for Betis as a result and they take real confidence into the game having won four of their last five, including a 3-2 win against Almería at the weekend.

They were a side that appeared to lose their way after a busy January transfer window with some notable departures and arrivals but Manuel Pellegrini seems to have stumbled on the winning formula again in recent weeks.

Former Premier League duo Ayoze Pérez and Pablo Fornals are enjoying life on the flanks either side of the impressive Isco with all three on target at the Benito Villamarín on Sunday.

Pellegrini is prone to a fair bit of rotation, so changes are likely here, but with a squad that’s built for European football, they should still have enough quality to get the job done against a badly out-of-form Las Palmas side and I’m backing an Away Win at 19/20.
