La Liga Tips: Goals for both sides when Espanyol face Rayo Vallecano
Spanish football expert Phil Kitromilides has been in fine form and has picked another three selections, including both teams to score at the Cornella El PratEspanyol v Rayo Vallecano: Both teams to score 8/11 (1.72) with Sportingbet
High-flying Rayo Vallecano find themselves in the unlikely position of being within touching
distance of a Champions League place. While they would of been more than happy with just surviving their first season back in the top flight, the team from Madrid will hope to build upon what has been a massively positive campaign so far.
Behind their city neighbours Real and Barcelona, Rayo are the third highest scorers on the road in the division. Espanyol meantime have scored in nine of their last ten home matches, meaning goals should be on the agenda.
Malaga v Levante: Levante to score over 0.5 goals 3/5 (1.60) with Sportingbet
Only two teams have conceded more goals at home than Malaga, with Manuel Pellegrini's team conceding in 11 of their last 12 home matches. Levante meantime have been on a horrible run of form, but having gone nearly three months without a victory, they are now on a run of two wins in a row.
They have also scored in each of their last six matches though, and against one of the shakiest defences in the division, they should be able to manage to score at least once.
Real Sociedad v Real Zaragoza: Zaragoza to win 18/5 (4.60) with Sportingbet
This is somewhat of a longer shot but at the same time there are enough reasons to make a small value bet on an away win. Two wins in their last four matches, has prolonged Zaragoza's faint hopes of surival.
They also beat Sociedad 2-0 in the reverse fixture earlier on in the season. Sociedad have won their last three home matches, although have proved extremely unpredictable. A Zaragoza win would be a surprise, but with Sociedad this season we have come to expect the unexpected.
