Live on Skysports 4: Sat 17.00, 19.00 & 21.00: Real Madrid head to Bilbao as 5/6 favs in a must win game to keep La Liga hopes alive.
Mourinho suffered his first home league defeat in 9 years last weekend and slipped to a daunting 8 points behind Barcelona with 8 games to go.
With the Spurs tie all but won, Mourinho’s Madrid can afford to keep chasing the league title, no matter how unlikely, and win in Bilbao at 5/6 with Stan James, though Bilbao is a tough place to go.
Bilbao, 4/1 with William Hill, are having a good season but home slip ups to Villarreal and Valencia shows they are weak to class oppositon. Madrid should win here, but maybe only by 1 goal (11/4 with bet365).
At 19.00, Barca are just 1/9 to beat Almeria with Blue Square. With their Champions League tie also done and dusted just about, they can afford to go out strong and try to wrap up the league too.
Finally on Saturday, Sevilla are a very nice looking 9/5 to win at Mallorca (William Hill). Mallorca have only beaten Bilbao in the top 7 at home and will fail again. Cautious punters can take a 1/2 (Boylesports) about a draw or Sevilla win but stick to the away win.
