Mark Sochon's La Liga Tips

It was three legs from four for our Spanish Football expert in his weekend acca last week as the 2-2 at Sociedad scuppered his hopes of a 6/1 winner.

He goes for a treble this time around with a pick from the Saturday night clash at Girona and two from Sunday, forming his Weekend Accumulator Football Tips for Matchday 32...

Weekend Football Accumulator Tips

  • Girona vs Cádiz - Girona -1.00 Handicap @ 23/20
  • Almería vs Villarreal - Away win @ 21/20
  • Alavés vs Atlético Madrid - Away win @ 1/1
  • Overall Odds - 7.81/1

Leg 1 - Girona vs Cádiz - Girona -1.00 Handicap @ 23/20

We kick things off at the Estadi Montilivi where Girona have been outstanding this season, winning 80% of their home fixtures in La Liga. No side outside of the current top six has even taken a point on this ground so it’s hard to make any case for 18th placed Cádiz getting a result.

While the Catalans are on a really poor run away from home currently, they continue to take care of business in front of their own fans, winning their last three home league games, scoring eight and conceding just twice.

Girona are expected to be in a position to name their strongest eleven for this match. Viktor Tsygankov looks to have shaken off a knock and should feature while the other major boost for La Liga’s surprise package is that Artem Dovbyk has ended his mini goal drought with three goals in his last two games.

Dovbyk now leads the Pichichi race on 17 strikes for the season and will be hungry for more here. The bigger priority for Girona is to clinch Champions League qualification. They are in a fantastic position to do that, but the job is far from done and they won’t be lacking motivation against a Cádiz side that is yet to win away this season.

They’ve collected just six points on their travels and while there have been minor improvements since the appointment of Mauricio Pellegrino, the transformation hasn’t been significant enough to suggest they are going to stay in this league.

This fixture won’t be one they’d have pencilled in for three points and against the stronger teams, the lack of quality throughout the pitch in this Cádiz side has invariably been exposed. They’ve lost four of their five away games against top seven opponents by two or more goals and I’m backing Girona -1.00 in the Handicap market here.

Leg 2 - Almería vs Villarreal - Away win @ 21/20

With just one win in 31 league matches this season, Almería’s relegation to the Segunda División should be confirmed over the coming fortnight. Statistically, they may go down as one of the worst ever teams to grace the Spanish top flight, but they’ve not been quite as bad as their record suggests.

Villarreal can’t afford to take them lightly with the Andalusians taking four points from three games since appointing Pepe Mel, although Almería were soundly beaten 3-0 by Osasuna in their last outing at the Power Horse Stadium where they’re yet to win this term.

The way Villarreal have been playing, the visitors have every reason to be confident. They’re one of the form teams in the division with 15 points from their last eight games, a record only Barcelona and Real Madrid can better.

Marcelino has done an impressive job in transforming their fortunes in the second half of the season. While there are still a few defensive doubts about Villarreal at times, they’ve improved a lot in that regard with only nine goals conceded in their last eight, a huge improvement on the first half of the campaign when they were leaking goals all over the place.

At the other end, there has never really been a problem. They have one of the best strike pairings in La Liga with Gerard Moreno and Alexander Sorloth scoring 24 times between them while veteran midfielder Dani Parejo is still a classy operator who has found a bit of form in recent weeks.

With the likes of Álex Baena, Bertrand Traoré and Gonçalo Guedes also posing a threat on the flanks, they should have too much firepower for La Liga’s bottom club and I’m backing an Away Win at 21/20.

Leg 3 - Alavés vs Atlético Madrid - Away win @ 1/1

The final leg of this weekend’s La Liga acca comes from Mendizorrotza where Atlético Madrid are hoping for another win to tighten their grip on a top four position.

It was a miserable midweek for Diego Simeone and his team as they twice surrendered a winning position in their Champions League quarter final against Borussia Dortmund to lose 4-2 on the night in Germany and 5-4 on aggregate.

They’ve at least had four free days to dust themselves down and regroup before this Sunday’s game and we should get a response from Atleti who have performed well in their last two in the league, winning tough fixtures against Villarreal and Girona.

Faced with the threat of missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 12 years, it does feel like something has finally clicked into place and they are now firm favourites in the race for fourth place with Athletic Club. The two sides meet next weekend in a crunch game in Madrid following winnable fixtures for both this matchday.

While Atlético Madrid’s away record in La Liga this season is not at all good, they can take confidence from a much needed road success at Villarreal in their most recent away league game and they have little to fear in Alavés right now.

The Basques are going through their worst run of the season, losing four of their last five games to nil and they are posing virtually no goal threat whatsoever at the moment.

Top scorer Samu Omorodion, who is on loan from Atleti and is eligible to play on Sunday, has gone seven games without a goal and Alavés have only managed to score twice across that period.

Their boss Luis García has largely stayed loyal to his regular starters and system, but he did mix things up a bit at Granada last time out. The results were not pretty as Alavés succumbed to a deserved 2-0 defeat against a team that is bound for the Segunda División.

On current form, it’s hard to see them getting anything here and I’m going with another Away Win at Evens to complete the acca.
