There's a full midweek fixture list over in Spain and we've picked out three great bets.
Valencia v Getafe – Wednesday 18:30
Much of Getafe’s success this season has come in front of their own fans as they’ve won just twice away – both at bottom-half teams. They’ve lost six of their last nine on their travels and while they managed a point at the Nou Camp in this run, they trailed at half-time in four of the defeats, including at top-six opponents Atletico, Villarreal and Real Madrid. Valencia have been in good form lately, winning each of their last five at home. In fact, the only sides to leave the Mestalla with any points this season currently reside in the top six, while in their 12 victories here they’ve led at the interval in 10.
Real Sociedad v Atletico Madrid – Thursday 18:30
Real Sociedad have won four of their last five at home but 8th placed Girona are the highest placed team to visit in that time and three of the victories were against bottom-six clubs. They’ve lost all three matches hosting the current top-four where they’ve conceded 10 times and against top-six sides they’ve lost 10 of 16 at home since 2015/16. Atletico are winless in three on the road but they’ve visited each of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Villarreal and if we exclude their trips to top-six sides this season they’re an impressive W8-D2-L1 on the road. Furthermore, Simeone’s men have won 12 of 17 trips to bottom-half clubs since the start of last season and look excellent value at odds-against.
Real Betis v Las Palmas – Thursday 20:30
Real Betis are flying high and their only defeats at home in their last seven have been against Barcelona and Real Madrid. In fact, if we exclude the current top-four, Betis are W8-D6-L1 at the Benito Villamarin this term, winning all four against bottom-six teams. Any points Las Palmas have picked up on their travels this season have come at bottom-eight clubs as they’ve struggled against La Liga’s better outfits and results last weekend look to have ended their chances of survival. Along with Malaga they’ve scored the fewest away goals, netting just the solitary goal in their eight defeats at top-half venues. Prior to their trip to Girona, Betis had kept five clean sheets in seven and are expected to win without conceding.
