Teams Hard To Split In Race For 3rd

Live on Skysports 4: Sun 18.00 & 20.00: Valencia host Villarreal but it’s a very tough one to split; the draw tempts at 13/5 ()

Unless one of them loses the plot, Valencia and Villareal will both finish in La Liga’s top four but the pair’s meeting at the Mestalla is significant in the battle for third, the winner of which won’t have to enter at the qualifying stage of Champions League.

Los Che currently sit in that position, holding a three-point advantage over El Submarino Amarillo but the latter possess a better goal difference and would leapfrog their rivals with a victory in this one so it’s all to play for.

Valencia are favourites but at just evens at best with Stan James, the hosts make for little appeal given their recent unconvincing form. The visitors meanwhile, 10/3 underdogs courtesy of Coral, are in slightly better shape following their 5-1 Europa League triumph in midweek but their best work domestically tends to be done on their own patch so they’re less than reliable on the road. Subsequently, the pair could quite easily cancel each other out and encouraged by the 13/5 available with , it’s hard not to be tempted by the draw.

The more ambitious can tackle William Hill’s 6/1 for it to finish one-each, a result that would please those backing both teams to score (5/6, ).

At the Vicente Calderon Stadium, Atletico Madrid have to be considered a home banker at 8/13 with Stan James as they entertain out-of-sorts Real Sociedad. The visitors have lost their last four, culminating in a dismal 3-1 home reverse last time out against Hercules, who had only managed three away goals all season until doubling that tally at the Estadio Anoeta a week ago.

For their part, the hosts have lost three on their last nine but those defeats came against the top three and elsewhere they’ve remained relatively solid, so they’re easily the form team of the two. They’re worth considering then, in the handicaps where the Basque outfit are given a goal start and Stan James price Atletico at 13/8.

Recommended Bets:
Valencia and Villareal to draw – 13/5 ()
Atletico Madrid (-1) to beat Real Sociedad – 13/8 (Stan James)
