The first weekend of the new year sees the Spanish La Liga resume from its winter break to serve up 8 scintillating fixtures for punters like you and me to cash in on our passion.
Huesca vs Real Betis
Bottom of the table Huesca play hosts to Real Betis who have been in very impressive form of late and sit 6th on the La Liga log.
The away side are the clear favourites for this one as Real Betis to win is set at a very generous 2.12 odds while a double chance on them is at 1.28 odds.
Alaves vs Valencia
Alaves have been one of the surprise stories of the season so far as they’ve consistently punched above their weight and currently sit 5th on the log halfway into the season but a GG seems like the best option against Valencia at 1.95 odds and you can also go for an Alaves win or draw at 1.52.

Real Valladolid vs Rayo Vallecano
Battle of the newly promoted sides is one which many including the bookmakers expect the home side Valladolid to win but I’m backing goals in this fixture as both teams to score is at 1.78 and a Valladolid double chance is at 1.23 odds.
Eibar vs Villareal
Impressive Eibar welcome rejuvenated Villareal to Iperua and both teams cancel each other out for me with both teams to score set at 1.68 odds and over 1.5 goals option at 1.24 odds.
Sevilla vs Atletico Madrid
Undoubtedly the biggest La Liga game of the weekend as 3rd hosts 2nd so you can expect a very tight game, but I still fancy both teams to score at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium at 1.85 odds.
Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Los Blancos have failed to make the Santiago Bernabeu stadium a fortress this season like it has been in the past and that will give Real Sociedad the confidence that they can get something from this game which would most likely result to both teams scoring at 1.64 odds.
Getafe vs Barcelona
The league leaders have been in imperious league form this season and they look unstopabble so you can expect a win against Getafe on Sunday at 1.42 odds and over 2.5 goals at 1.65 odds.
Celta Vigo vs Athletic Bilbao
Both teams have blown hot and cold so far this season but you wouldn’t be wrong to expect a lot of goals in this encounter as both teams to score is at 1.73 odds and over 1.5 goals at 1.23 odds.
