La Liga Correct Score Predictor with Infogol: Tips for every fixture of GW4

Jesus Navas Suso Sevilla
Sevilla got their season off to a winning start

Using Expected Goals (xG) data from Infogol, Tom Victor provides La Liga result and scoreline predictions for a packed midweek schedule...

"Sevilla were run close by Levante this time last year, needing a late Luuk de Jong winner to break the deadlock, but Julen Lopetegui has grown into his role and the Europa League holders are solid favourites to make light work of their opponents this time around."

La Real to eke out another three points

Real Sociedad v Valencia
Tuesday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

After impressing in Saturday's win at Elche, Real Sociedad can notch back-to-back wins against Valencia. Los Che were out of sorts at home to Huesca at the weekend, and fans may be beginning to worry about the lack of new arrivas. La Real can become the first opponent this season to prevent Valencia from scoring, with a 46% chance of victory and BTTS down below 50% according to Infogol's model.

Back the 2-0 @ 8.4015/2

Betis to suffer Madrid hangover away to Getafe

Getafe v Real Betis
Tuesday, 20:30
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Betis will feel hard done by to have lost at home to Real Madrid on Saturday night, leading at half time only for a late Sergio Ramos penalty to break their resistance after Manuel Pellegrini's team conceded an equaliser and went a man down. They take on a Getafe side who beat them 1-0 at the Coliseum in January and haven't conceded in either of their last two, so Infogol anticipates a home win with the visitors being shut out.

Back the 2-0 @ 12.0011/1

Atlético to build on fast start with Huesca success

Huesca v Atletico Madrid
Wednesday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

New Atlético Madrid signing Luis Suárez made an instant impact against Granada, scoring twice in a 6-1 win, and he and his team-mates should have too much for a Huesca side without a win in its opening two games. Michel's team earned a good point at Valencia over the weekend, but Michel's side haven't shown too many signs they'll have what it takes to break down one of La Liga's stingiest defences.

Back the 0-2 @ 6.4011/2

Villarreal to bounce back from Barcelona humbling

Villarreal v Alavés
Wednesday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Villarreal made things easy for Ronald Koeman's Barcelona at Camp Nou, allowing their hosts to wrap up the game before half-time, but a return to home soil for the visit of Alavés can set them back on track. The visitors got off the mark with a goalless draw at Getafe, but have just one goal to their name this season and Unai Emery's hosts are 58% to win based on Infogol's model.

Back the 2-0 @ 7.6013/2

Eibar to pick up first win of the season

Eibar v Elche
Wednesday, 20:30
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Eibar kept things much tighter against Athletic than against Villarreal the week before, but the full-time result was the same. José Luis Mendilibar's team are winless so far this season, but midweek opponents Elche looked worryingly porous at home to Real Sociedad on Saturday and ought to provide the hosts with plenty of chances, as emphasised by Infogol making Eibar 51% favourites to win and anticipating both teams scoring.

Back the 2-1 @ 9.4017/2

Real Madrid have chance to look more comfortable

Real Madrid v Real Valladolid
Wednesday, 20:30
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Real Madrid had plenty of nervy moments in their 3-2 win at Real Betis, but a return to the Bernabéu can help set them straight. The champions welcome a Valladolid side with two draws and a defeat so far this season, and are 72% to win in a fixture which saw Sergi Guardiola's late goal deny them victory at the start of last season. Infogol puts BTTS at a distinctly low 37%, suggesting Madrid are likely to reprise the defensive solidity which served them well in June and July.

Back the 2-0 @ 7.206/1

Athletic to kick on after big win at Eibar

Athletic Bilbao v Cádiz
Thursday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Athletic Bilbao managed to snap their losing streak with three points at Eibar, scoring twice from an xGF of just 0.60, and Unai López's late winner is the kind of moment on which something can be built. Gaizka Garitano's team welcome Cádiz to San Mamés, and are 47% to take all three points from a game in which goals may well be scarce, with Infogol anticipating a 39% chance of more than 2.5 goals and putting BTTS below 50%.

Back the 2-0 @ 7.206/1

Sevilla to keep rolling as Levante visit

Sevilla v Levante
Thursday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

Sevilla were run close by Levante this time last year, needing a late Luuk de Jong winner to break the deadlock, but manager Julen Lopetegui has grown into his role and the Europa League holders are solid favourites to make light work of their opponents this time around. Infogol's model backs them to follow a dominant win at Cádiz with three points at home, with a strong chance Yassine Bounou becomes the first La Liga keeper this season to stop Paco López's team from scoring.

Back the 2-0 @ 7.6013/2

Barcelona to squeak past Celta

Celta Vigo v Barcelona
Thursday, 18:00
Watch on Betfair Live Video

After a straightforward opening win against Villarreal, Barcelona have a tougher test at Balaídos. Last season's equivalent fixture was the beginning of the end for Quique Setién, with a late Iago Aspas equaliser setting the tone for Barça to concede ground in the title race, but new boss Ronald Koeman can become the first manager this season to beat a Celta side seizing its opportunity after coming within a goal of relegation on the final day of last season.

Back the 1-2 @ 8.6015/2
