The El Classico certainly did not disappoint! Of course, it had to be that man Jude Bellingham who stole the headlines once again. Indeed, his stoppage-time winner means that he is the first player to score for Real Madrid in their first two Clásicos in La Liga since Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2007. Just how far will the Englishman’s star rise? Elsewhere, Atletico Madrid’s 2-nil defeat away to Alavez compiled pressure on Diego Simeone. His side have now lost 11 games on their travels across all competitions this season (G23 W7 D5) – their worst away record in a single campaign under El Cholo. Third-placed Girona have opened up a seven-point gap between them and fourth placed Atletico and could further their advantage as Bilboa travels to the Civitas Metropolitano this weekend. All that and more!

Friday 26 April

31/20 Real Sociedad | Draw 9/4 | Real Madrid 17/10 (21:00)  

Jude Bellingham scored a late winner as Real Madrid beat Barcelona to move 11 points clear at the top of La Liga. The Madridastas are firmly in the driving seat to reclaim the title with just six league games left to play this season.

Back Madrid on the win and over 3.5 goals at 9/1.

Saturday 27 April

3/1 Las Palmas | Draw 11/4 | Girona 8/10 (14:00)

Girona picked themselves up and dusted themselves off, after their hammering by Atletico, to put four past Cadiz. The Blanquivermells can take another step toward Champions League qualification with a victory here.

Back Girona on the win and BTTS (yes) at 49/20.

7/4 Almeria | Draw 23/10 | Getafe 15/10 (16:15)

With one win across their previous five league outings, Getafe are slipping closer and closer to the bottom half of the log. That being said, Jose Bordalas should fire up his chargers as they come up against an Almeria team who are all but relegated.

I see an away win here. Get in on 15/10.

15/10 Alaves | Draw 2/1 | Celta Vigo 19/10 (18:30)

Celta Vigo came from behind to smash Las Palmas 4-1, last time out. In doing so, they put some much-needed distance between them and the drop zone. Whilst they come into this round of fixtures in seventeenth place, there have been signs of life under Claudio Giraldez.

Back Celta Vigo on the win here and BTTS (yes) at 6/1.

19/20 Atletico Madrid | Draw 5/2 | Athletic Club 26/10 (21:00)

This one has the makings of a feisty encounter as fourth places Atletico hosts fifth-placed, Bilbao. With crucial points on the line and an incredibly strong home record to fall back on, I back Simeone’s men to come away with something here. 

Back the home side on the double chance and over 1.5 goals at 6/10.

Sunday 28 April

29/20 Cadiz | Draw 37/20 | Mallorca 22/10 (14:00)

With both sides in desperate need of points, this one could go down to the wire! That being said, Mallorca’s defense has been resolute since the turn of the year, and I think they emerge with a point here at least.

Back a goalless draw here at 46/10.

31/20 Granada | Draw 21/10 | Osasuna 37/20 (16:15)

Granada snapped their five-match losing streak in the league to down Alaves and emerge with a point against Atletic Club. There seems to be some momentum in the short term, and I think they have enough to get over the line against Osasuna.

Back Granada on the double chance here and BTTS (yes) at 15/10.

8/10 Villarreal | Draw 26/10 | Rayo Vallecano 32/10 (18:30)

With just a single league defeat from their previous five outings, Villarreal are in the top half of the standings. The Yellow Submarine sailed through choppy waters and have come out a different side, since the turn of the year.

Back Villarreal on the win and over 2.5 goals at 17/10.

5/4 Real Betis | Draw 22/10 | Sevilla 9/4 (21:00)

See Preview Match.

Monday 29 April

7/20 Barcelona | Draw 4/1 | Valencia 13/2 (21:00)

Xavi’s men had nothing to show for their spirited performance against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. Despite leading twice, a late Jude Bellingham goal sank Barca hearts. I expect a reaction on home soil against Valencia.

Back the home side on the win and over 2.5 goals at 9/10.
