Away from home, Villarreal have slightly lost their way but are certainly good enough to get at least a draw, 5/2 with Stan James, at Racing Santander.
Santander do pride themselves on home form and broke a series of draws with a fantastic win over Sevilla but a return to the stalemates is on the cards here. Villarreal at 5/6 (Ladbrokes) on the draw no bet market is short but safe.
In the late game, a reinvigorated Bilbao, back in the top 5 after an absence, are 7/5 with Coral to beat Valencia in what promises to be a very tight game.
Bilbao can edge this one, just by 1 goal though, a 3/1 chance at bet365.
