Leg 1 - Osasuna vs Real Betis - Away Win @ 13/10

We kick things off this Sunday La Liga acca with the early game at El Sadar where visitors Real Betis will be hungry for three points in their pursuit of European football.

It has been a slightly underwhelming season for Betis, but only by the high standards of Manuel Pellegrini’s otherwise successful reign. They’ll be disappointed by their failure to make any real impact on the European stage, but their league form has picked up over the past few weeks with seven points from their last three games and they were marginally the better side in the drawn Seville derby last time out.

They are missing Isco to suspension on Sunday which is a blow, but it creates an opportunity for Nabil Fekir to play in his favourite position and the visitors will still take to the field with more than enough attacking quality to create chances against this out of sorts Osasuna side.

These are uncertain times in Pamplona. Long-serving boss Jagoba Arrasate has announced his intention to leave in the summer after a very impressive six year stint and it’s unclear what comes next.

With nothing to play for, there is now a real danger that Arrasate’s reign is going to end on something of a sour note. Osasuna have lost their last three and put in one of their worst performances of the season last time out, crashing to a 3-0 defeat at struggling Granada.

They are set to be missing perhaps their two most important players to injury again this weekend with top scorer Ante Budimir and centre back David Garcia sidelined. There is certainly no replacing Budimir who has scored 43% of his team’s goals this term and this feels like a real opportunity for Betis to chalk up three points and I’m backing an Away Win at 13/10.

Leg 2 - Celta Vigo vs Villarreal - Double Chance - Draw or Villarreal @ 3/5

Villarreal are another team chasing European football. They’ve been comfortably one of the best teams in La Liga since the turn of the year and have lost just one of their last 13 league fixtures to turn what was shaping up to be a very poor season, into something much more respectable.

They’ve got a number of in-form attacking players to call upon here. Alexander Sørloth is having surely the best season of his career with 17 league goals for the Yellow Submarine and has fired in 10 in his last 10 matches in all competitions.

He’s been helped out by some exceptional service from the likes of Dani Parejo and Álex Baena who registered a hat-trick of assists in the 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano last time out. The 22 year old has created more goals than any other player in the Spanish top flight this season.

They look good to continue their strong form here against a Celta Vigo side that is involved in the relegation scrap. The Galcians made a really bright start to life under the inexperienced

Claudio Giráldez who took over from the sacked Rafa Benítez, but his honeymoon period came to a pretty definitive halt last weekend.

They were dreadful against Alavés, failing to register a shot on target in a 3-0 defeat against one of the lowest scoring sides in the division. It could have been more in truth and it’s the first big test for 36 year old Giráldez as he tries to lift his troops ahead of this game. I can see the visitors getting at least a point though, so I’m backing Double Chance - Draw or Villarreal at 3/5.

Leg 3 - Valencia vs Alavés - Over 0.5 Away Team Goals @ 4/6

Alavés are all but safe now after impressive back-to-back home wins over Atlético Madrid and Celta Vigo. They are playing perhaps their most convincing football of the season right now with Luis García shaking up his starting eleven in recent weeks and reaping the rewards.

The introduction of Giuliano Simeone, son of Atleti boss Diego, has been one of the catalysts for their improvements. He was one of their big summer signings but suffered a serious injury very early on which ruled him out for the majority of the campaign. Simeone is making up for lost time though and scored the opening goal in the 3-0 demolition of Celta last time out.

Out-of-form top scorer Samu Omorodion has been dropped in favour of veteran striker Kike García and right now, this Alavés side looks full of belief and they’ll fancy their chances of having some joy in the final third on Sunday.

Valencia do boast an impressive defensive record, the joint fourth best in La Liga but their very talented young goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili has been a huge factor in that.

He’s suspended this weekend following a red card at Barcelona on Monday night. That proved the turning point in a game that Los Che were leading 2-1 but they conceded three Second Half goals to lose with the considerably less convincing Jaume Doménech between the sticks.

Doménech is one of the less reliable back-up keepers in La Liga and we might see a great deal more uncertainty in the Valencia back-line as a whole without Mamardashvili. Partly because of that, I can see the visitors grabbing at least a goal and I’m backing Over 0.5 Away Team Goals at 4/6 for the third leg of the acca.

Leg 4 - Sevilla vs Granada - Over 0.5 Away Team Goals @ 4/7

We round things off with an Andalusian derby and another somewhat resurgent struggling team in the shape of Granada. They’ve taken seven points from their last three games with the recently appointed José Ramón Sandoval at the helm.

They still need a miracle to beat the drop with 10 points separating them from safety, but for the first time this season, they look to be playing with a bit of belief and they were impressive in a 3-0 win over Osasuna last time out.

Granada haven’t travelled at all well this season, but they seem to be playing with a bit more freedom now and they do have two capable forwards in the shape of Lucas Boyé and Myrto Uzuni.

That should at least keep this Sevilla defence on its toes. Quique Sánchez Flores’ side have conceded in each of their last three home league games with struggling Celta Vigo and Mallorca both on target at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

It’s still a game that Sevilla are rightfully favourites to win, but Granada are in the territory where they just have to target three points in every game regardless of the difficulty and I’m backing Over 0.5 Away Team Goals at 4/7 to complete the acca.
