<p>There are several exciting games to look forward to in La Liga this weekend as Spain’s finest teams jostle for position in the table. We have seen some shock results in recent weeks and that leaves plenty of value for punters. Here are some of the most intriguing games from a betting perspective:</p><p> </p><h3>Celta Vigo v Valencia</h3> Valencia’s nine-game unbeaten streak came to an end with a 2-1 defeat to champions elect Barcelona a week ago, and then they lost again to a Loic Remy inspired Getafe. However, Marcelino García Toral’s men have still enjoyed a fantastic season and they deservedly sit fourth in the table. They are certain to secure a Champions League spot for next season, and they could even overtake the mighty Real Madrid before the season is out. They beat Celta Vigo 2-1 with a strong performance back in December, and they are 21 points above them in the table. Celta Vigo are a pretty inconsistent side, which can make them awkward for sports betting purposes, but Valencia have enough quality to gain a result here. Valencia draw no bet looks good at even money with Paddy Power and slightly better than evens with Marathon Bet. <h3>Malaga v Real Sociedad</h3> Sociedad’s confidence levels must have skyrocketed after they secured a sensational 3-0 victory over second-placed Atletico Madrid last time out. It was one of the highlights of their season and it leaves them comfortably nestled in mid-table. They travel to Malaga to face the league’s bottom club, who are all but certain to be relegated after losing their last two games. Malaga beat Sociedad 2-0 earlier this season, one of only four wins they have secured in the entire campaign, so revenge will be high on the agenda on Sunday. Sociedad have a mediocre away record, but Malaga’s home record is the worst in the league, so Imanol Alguacil’s team could take all three points here. A Sociedad win is 19/20 with William Hill and Sky Bet. <h3>Las Palmas v Alaves</h3> Las Palmas look all but certain to join Malaga in dropping down to the second tier of Spanish football, because they have been absolutely dreadful in front of goal this season. They have managed just 22 goals in 32 games, and they have conceded 64, so they deserve to be 10 points adrift of safety. Alaves are another low-scoring side: they have managed 29 goals all season, and only 12 of them have come on the road. This game therefore looks like developing into a pretty dull, low scoring affair and under 2.5 goals looks interesting at 79/100 with Marathon Bet and 3/4 with the likes of Sun Bets, Bet365, Betway and Bet Stars. <h3>Atletico Madrid v Real Betis</h3> Nobody could have imagined Atletico would lose 3-0 to Sociedad, but they still own the best defensive record in any of Europe’s top five leagues this season. They have won their last 10 home games to nil, and that is remarkable form. They are a mature, professional and disciplined team, and they should bounce straight back from that surprise defeat. They beat Real Betis 1-0 earlier this season away from home, and they have a great record against Quique Setién’s men. They have won 10 of their last 12 games against Betis, and drawn the other two, and kept eight clean sheets during that time. Betis are in strong form, having won four on the bounce, but history is on Atletico’s side, even if they may be distracted by an upcoming Europa League clash with Arsenal. Atletico to win to nil looks very tempting at 31/20 with Bet Victor.<p></p>
