Barcelona vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Barca is presently in third and 4 factors adrift of Atleti, so this recreation is solely a must-win – something apart from victory and their title hopes are toast. Two attracts of their final two video games – the primary in opposition to leaders Atleti and final week, crucially, away at Levante – have proved expensive to the Catalans and if they’re to win the title they will should do it the exhausting means. With each Actual and the leaders successful final weekend, Week 36 might show to be the pivotal weekend.

For Barca, Coutinho, Fati, and Roberto are nonetheless injured and unavailable however apart from these three, supervisor Ronald Koeman appears to have a wholesome squad to choose from. Celta Vigo has a number of issues of its personal – Alvarez, Blanco, Murillo, and Tapia are all out by way of damage and Fontan has been examined optimistic for coronavirus – however is on a four-game successful run in La Liga, so could have some confidence.

Within the reverse fixture earlier within the marketing campaign, Barcelona ran out comfy 3-0 winners in Vigo, and it’s exhausting to see previous an analogous outcome right here. A house win is certainly on the playing cards, given what’s at stake, so, for me, the query is by what number of? Don’t rule out a repeat of their first assembly.

Choose: Barcelona to win 3-0 (+800)

Atletico Madrid vs Osasuna Prediction

Atleti can go one step nearer to their Eleventh La Liga title with a victory within the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, however Eleventh-place Osasuna is in fine condition after their win over Cadiz final weekend and can push them exhausting. However Atletico is in place after overcoming a helpful Actual Sociedad facet final weekend and their 2-1 win, achieved underneath large stress, could have ready them for this.

Atleti boss Diego Simeone shall be with out the providers of Thomas Lemar however he needs to be the one key determine lacking from an in any other case wholesome squad, with Hermoso anticipated to return at left-back. For Osasuna, skilled goalkeeper Ruben Martinez is once more dominated out by way of damage, so Juan Perez will deputize, and anticipate to see an analogous XI to the one which beat Cadiz.

Whereas Los Rojillos have little to play for, they demonstrated final weekend that they’re able to nonetheless choosing up wins, and look like having fun with the liberty of figuring out one other La Liga season is assured. Atleti’s behavior of choosing up slender, low-scoring wins might finally value them and so, with the stress nicely and actually on once more, don’t rule out an equally low-scoring draw.

Choose: Atletico Madrid & Osasuna to attract (+525)

Athletic Membership Bilbao vs Actual Madrid Prediction

Actual Madrid is the one staff of the highest three taking part in away from house, however an empty Estadio San Mames will maintain few fears for them, particularly after recording an emphatic 4-1 away win over Granada on Thursday. Zinedine Zidane’s males are the hunters somewhat than the hunted and look like thriving in consequence, with their run of kind – no defeats of their final 10 –  heaping stress on Atleti.

Bilbao, in the meantime, suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Huesca in midweek and seems to lack end-of-season motivation with a European place now out of attain. And so, despite the fact that Zidane is with out Carvajal, Mendy, Ramos, Varane, and Lucas – all lacking by way of damage – it’s exhausting to see previous a Actual win.

With Bilbao additionally minus a handful of huge names – Alvarez, Capa, Berchiche, Muniain, Nolaskoin, and Zarraga are all injured – there may be worth within the away win, despite the fact that it’s odds on, and likewise value contemplating is Karin Benzema as the primary goalscorer.

Picks: Actual Madrid to win (-182); Benzema to attain first (+300)
