Sunday's live Spanish soccer

Villarreal v Getafe

Only the second half is live on Sky, but as both teams like to pass the ball, it should be an engaging 45 minutes.

Ernesto Valverde's yellow submarines lost away to Sporting Gijon last week and while there is no shame in that given how well the latter have played this season, it looks to me like Villarreal (7/10) are becoming one of those teams that are good at home, but erratic away from it. Three wins in their last three home games suggests there is plenty of merit to this theory.

Getafe's 2-0 win at Espanyol (two weeks ago) ended a run of four consecutive away defeats for the Azulones and striker Roberto Soldano scored a hat-trick in their 5-1 victory over Xerez last weekend.

Soldano is available at 7/1 for the first goal, 2/1 to score anytime or 50/1 for a hat-trick. For Villarreal, Rossi is priced at 9/2 to score the first goal or 6/5 to score at anytime, while the Brazilian Nilmar is 9/2 and 6/5 in the same markets. Midfield holding player Senna scored in the Europa league midweek and is an expert free kick taker, so the price of 10/1 for him to score first or 7/2 to score anytime must be worth consideration.

The two teams have met ten times in La Liga, with Villarreal winning seven, Getafe (7/2) winning one and two draws. Last season this game ended 3-3 and the same result is priced at 66/1. Bet now

Athletic Bilbao vs Valencia

Athletic (19/10) drew their last home game with Barcelona and won impressively away to Almeria last weekend, so they will expect to get something out of this tie with Valencia (5/4).

Last May's defeat at the Mestalla was Athletic's first against Los Che after four consecutive wins in La Liga. This reverse fixture yielded a 3-2 win for the Basque's with a 90th minute winner from target man Llorente.

Valencia have only won once out of their last eleven visits to San Mames, with four draws and six defeats but have a chance to make club history this Sunday as a win would give them five away wins in a row.

Valencia are unbeaten in their last eight games and Athletic in their last four, so a draw should not be ruled out and is priced at 9/4.

It's impossible to write an article about Valencia without mentioning David Villa and La Liga's current top scorer is priced at 4/1 to score first or evens to score at anytime. For Athletic, Llorente is 6/1 and 7/4 in the same markets. Bet now
