Both Spanish sides will be aiming for a strong second half to the season, as they hope to break into the European positions. But, which team will land maximum points on Friday? [banner][/banner] 

La Liga Preview 

Villarreal will have home field advantage this week, as they chase a much-needed return to winning ways after playing out draws in their last two matches. Ties are becoming a recurring issue for the Spanish side, as they have played out three in their last four. However, a return to winning ways this weekend would see them move up to 12th in the standings.  There are huge questions hanging over this Villarreal side from a defensive perspective, as they have already allowed 46 goals across their league outings this term. No side located above them in the league standings have conceded more, while only Almeria and Granada have worse defensive records at this stage of the season. [news_button][/news_button]  Getafe are more likely to make a charge for a European position at this stage of the season, as they are just five points off the top six. They come into this match after winning two of their last four, but they have suffered one defeat over that same sequence of fixtures in the competition. However, a win on Friday could lift them up to eighth.  Getafe were in excellent form in their most recent match in the competition, as they fought back to secure a 3-2 home win against Celta Vigo. Jaime Mata was the star of the show for the home team on that occasion, as he netted twice. The other goal in the win was netted in the opening 45 minutes by Borja Mayoral. 

Villarreal vs Getafe Head to Head 

Villarreal’s record in this fixture could be hard to overlook this week, as the home side have won seven of their last nine against Getafe. However, a second draw over that run of matches was played out earlier in the season. Getafe haven’t won away from home against Villarreal since January 2019. 

Villarreal vs Getafe Prediction 

This should be an entertaining fixture to kick off the La Liga weekend on Friday. We expect both teams to find the net in this match, but the slight preference is for the away team to end their long wait for a win on the road at Villarreal.

The final match in La Liga this weekend is staged on Monday. Athletic Bilbao will be heavily favoured in the betting to continue their excellent recent run of form, with a victory at Almeria potentially lifting them into the Champions League spots in the standings.

La Liga Preview 

It has been a very reliable start to the 2023-24 season for Athletic Bilbao, and they are well in the mix to challenge for a European position this term. The Spanish side currently sits fifth in the standings, but they are just three points off Atletico Madrid. Bilbao also have an eight-point cushion over sixth-placed Real Sociedad. 

The Spanish side comes into this match on the road after winning three of their last five matches, and they showed excellent character to bounce back to form in their previous match to end a two-game winless run. It was a dominant display by Bilbao last weekend, with Yuri Berchiche netting twice in a 4-0 home success against Mallorca. A similar performance will be expected on Monday.

It appears very hard to make a case for Almeria this weekend, as they continue to sit at the bottom of the standings after failing to win a single match this term. They have picked up just six points from their 23 matches this season, and they already look dead and buried after a 14-point gap has emerged between themselves and safety. 

The hosts come into this round after suffering defeats in each of their last three matches, with their most recent loss coming against Valencia last Saturday. Almeria conceded twice inside the opening 23 minutes of that match, and they can ill-afford another slow start against Bilbao this Monday. 

Almeria vs Athletic Bilbao Head to Head 

Bilbao boasts a staggering record in this fixture after winning eight of their last nine meetings with Almeria since the start of 2010. That includes victories in each of the last five. The previous meeting this term saw Bilbao land a 3-0 home victory in October. 

Almeria vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction 

It has been a disastrous season to this point for Almeria, and there is little hope that things will begin to improve this weekend. Bilbao looks the standout bet to win this fixture, and they could claim success by at least a two goal margin on the road.
