thumbnail Hello,

After a profitable campaign, our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides signs off with three more selections on the final day of the season, including at least four goals in Seville

Real Betis v Barcelona: Over 3.5 goals 5/6 (1.83) Paddy Power

Pep Guardiola's final league match in charge should see Barca go out in a flourish of free-flowing exuberance. The Catalans, or more accurately, Lionel Messi put four past Espanyol last week to take him to 50 league goals for the season and five ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi will be keen to grab a couple more to ensure there is no chance the Portuguese can deprive him of the Pichichi top scorer award, and that could prove bad news for Betis. Yet the team from Seville always raise their game for the big sides, giving Barca a mighty scare at the Camp Nou earlier this season in 4-2 defeat in January. Goals look likely and in any game involving Barca, this is an attractive price for four goals or more.

Malaga v Sporting Gijon: Both teams to score 8/13 (1.62) Paddy Power

A win for Malaga would seal their place in the Champions League, while anything other than a would for Sporting would seal their place La Segunda; two differing, but equally powerful motivating factors for each side to go for the win.

Malaga of course are massive favourites and should beat the Asturians who sadly over the course of the season have just not been quite good enough. Yet Sporting have managed to score a few goals on their travels, netting in six of their last seven away matches. Only six teams have conceded more home goals than Malaga, who are more than capable of scoring, but always look unconvincing at the back.


Real Sociedad v Valencia: Valencia to win 11/8 (2.38) Paddy Power

Having briefly pressed the self destruct button and threatened to give up their monopoly on third place, Valencia can reflect on another season of having secured Champions League football despite selling their star players.

Unai Emery's last game in charge of Los Che is against a Sociedad side, who given their frantic end to last season, will be delighted to be languishing in mid table obscurity. Though there is little for either side to play for, the price for Valencia looks generous against a Sociedad side with only one win in their last seven.
