Granada vs. Sevilla predictions

Newly promoted Granada performed well in a thrilling 4-4 draw in their opening fixture against Villarreal. They face a sterner test here though with Sevilla looking impressive whilst comfortably defeating Espanyol in their opener. The betting market is confident in the away side with Sevilla given an almost 50% chance of maintaining their 100% record.

Levante vs. Villarreal predictions

An exciting opening fixture for Villarreal saw them both score and concede four goals. In contrast Levante were much less prolific putting up just 0.79 expected goals away to Alaves. Villarreal's exciting attack may need to make up for their defensive efficiencies once again with Pinnacle's odds projecting a fairly even game.

Osasuna vs. Eibar predictions

Osasuna can count themselves somewhat fortunate to have secured a victory over Leganes despite expected goals suggesting they only had a 4% chance of doing so based on the shots taken in the match. Eibar justifiably lost to newly promoted Mallorca, but were more impressive than this weekend's opponents despite respective scorelines. Osasuna are marginally favoured by the betting odds in a very difficult fixture to predict.

Real Madrid vs. Real Vallodolid predictions

Real Madrid started their second Zinedine Zidane era with a very credible 3-1 victory away to Celta Vigo, despite the absence of Eden Hazard. Karim Benzema took up the attacking slack with the opening goal and an assist. Real Vallodolid are given just a 6% chance to win here despite their opening win against a decent Real Betis team. They were however aided by an early red card for their opponents who still managed to create the better chances despite playing with one less player. The betting market is probably right to predict a Real Madrid victory here then.

Bet: Real Madrid vs. Real Vallodolid odds

Celta Vigo vs. Valencia predictions

Celta Viga

Draw

Valencia

30.77%

26.73%

Celta Vigo have been unfortunate with the fixture list, facing two of La Liga's best teams in their opening matches. An equaliser in added time ruined what was an otherwise strong display from Valencia in a tricky match with Real Sociedad. They are deserved favourites to win here, however Iago Aspas may have other ideas.

Bet: Celta Vigo vs. Valencia odds

Getafe vs. Athletic Bilbao predictions

Bilbao were outplayed at the Camp Nou but emerged as surprise winners thanks to a moment of magic from veteran forward Artiz Aduriz. An away trip to Getafe presents a different kind of challenge however, with the hosts better known for the strength of their defence than their attacking threat. Athletic will need to show they have the ability to unlock defences to emerge victorious in what should be a closely matched contest.

Bet: Getafe vs. Athletic Bilbao odds

Alaves vs Espanyol predictions

Alaves 

Draw

Espanyol

38.87%

29.77%

33.36%

Alaves are favoured to take a positive result from the visit of Levante. Levante were the fourth highest scoring team last season, outscoring the likes of Atletico Madrid and Valencia, whilst Alaves conceded at a rate of 1.3 goals per game. Levante to score over 0.5 goals is available at 1.478* which could be of interest for bettors expecting the away side to continue their strong attacking record from last season.

Bet: Alaves vs. Espanyol odds

Mallorca vs. Real Sociedad predictions

Mallorca

Draw

Real Sociedad

31.82%

29.15%

39.03%

Real Sociedad are favoured to win away in Mallorca by the betting odds but the hosts were impressive in defeating Eibar in their opening match. This exciting young Real Sociedad team rescued a point against a superior Valencia in their opening match. They will be expected to perform better in what should be a favourable matchup despite Mallorca's strong start to life back in La Liga.

Bet: Mallorca vs. Real Sociedad odds

Barcelona vs. Real Betis predictions

Barcelona lacked their usual cutting edge with Lionel Messi missing from the defeat to Bilbao. His return could make all the difference here, as the high probability of a Barcelona win is at least partially based on the return of the Argentinian. Betis for their part coped well with the early sending off of goalkeeper Joel Robles but were understandably not able to play to their best against Real Vallodlid. A trip away to the Camp Nou is as tough as it gets so it may remain to be seen exactly how strong Betis are.

Bet: Barcelona vs. Real Betis odds

Leganes vs. Atletico Madrid predictions

Leganes

Draw

Atletico Madrid

15.76%

Atletico picked up a red card and missed a penalty but still secured a regulation 1-0 win in their opening game. They seem to find a way of getting the job done even in adversity. Leganes were unlucky in their opening fixture and are likely to need some fortune in their direction to win here. Atleti are clearly one of La Liga's best sides and are understandably heavily favoured to emerge with victory form this match. 

Bet: Leganes vs Atletico Madrid odds
