33rd round of spanish Liga. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches.
ESPANYOL - BARCELONA
Among the 6 matches to play for Barça, the toughest one is surely the fight in Vicente Calderon against Atletico in the 37th gameweek.
Other teams to face are Getafe, Cordoba, Real Sociedad and Deportivo.
Real Madrid instead, has not played yet against Valencia and Sevilla.
Espanyol has collected good results lately and is now fighting for a place in Europa League.
Attackers are really on shape but defensive phase has a lot of lacks.
Barcelona has all its players available and is really motivated to get the 3 points in this derby match.
ESPANYOL: Casilla; Duarte, Moreno, Gonzalez, Arbilla;
Alvarez, Lopez, Canas, Vazquez; Caicedo, Garcia.
BARCELONA: Bravo; Alba, Mathieu, Piqué, Alves; Iniesta, Busquets, Xavi; Neymar, Suarez, Messi.
2 + OVER 2.5 (1.70, Sporting Bet)
ATLETICO MADRID - ELCHE
Atletico has to defend the third place. They now have 4 points of advantage from Valencia and considering the easy game for Valencia against Granada, a win would be extremely important for Atletico this evening.
Elche occupies the 14th position, 6 above relegation and has collected 2 wins in a row beating Cordoba and Real Sociedad although the several injured players: Albacar, Sergio Pellegrin and Jose Angel mainly.
Tonight Elche can't count on the banned Rodriguez, Pasalic and Niguez.
In our opinion easy 1.
ATLETICO MADRID: Oblak; Siqueira, Godin, Miranda, Juanfran;
Koke, Tiago, Gabi, Turan; Griezmann, Manduzkic (or Torres).
ELCHE: Tyton; Cisma, Lomban, Roco, Suarez; Mosquera, Adrian; Coro, Fajr, Rodrigues; Jonathas .
REAL SOCIEDAD - VILLAREAL
It's a very uncertain match to bet on: VIllareal hasn't won for the last 8 matches, while Real Sociedad hasn't lost a home match since January and has often beaten good teams in this season.
Real Sociedad has lost its chances to get a place in Europa League but are motivated to show a good performance against Villareal, after being eliminated from the Copa del Rey.
GOAL should be a good choice.
REAL SOCIEDAD: Rulli; Martinez, Ansotegi, Gonzalez, Yuri;
Granero, Pardo; Prieto, Canales, Castro; Vela.
VILLARREAL: Asenjo; Mario, Dorado, Ruiz, Costa; J. Dos Santos, Trigueros, Pina, Campbell; Vietto, Moreno.
