Real Sociedad-Valladolid

Currently placed third from bottom they will hope to overcome mid-table Valladolid.

Atletico Madrid-Racing Santander

Racing also received good news in the form that the point that there were originally docked for fielding an ineligible player has been returned to them.


Albacete-Athletic Bilbao

Bilbao will be without Asier del Horno, who is suspended, while Luis Prieto and Jose Mari Lacruz should return.

Real Betis-Villarreal

Deportivo La Coruna -Espanyol

Espanyol will be without Albert Lopo, Toni Soldevilla and Ivan de la Pena, all of whom were sent off in the match against Barcelona last weekend.



Zaragoza need a change of fortunes after slipping down to 16th after last weekend’s home defeat against Albacete.

Mallorca-Real Madrid

After narrowly beating Leganes in the King’s Cup on Thursday, coach Carlos Queiroz was left with another headache, as David Beckham and Michel Salgado suffered bruising and could be ruled out of this Sunday’s game.

Mallorca will proved to be no push over though. Last season they turned Real over in emphatic style at the Bernabeu, winning 5-1.

Barcelona-Celta Vigo

Celta will hope to build on last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Atlectico and pull them away from the bottom-half of the table.
