Atletico vs. Huesca (Thursday, 6.00pm)
Diego Simeone's men produced a five-star performance to sweep aside Eibar last time out, while Huesca were brought crashing back down to earth with a 1-0 defeat to fellow strugglers Alaves.
We say: Atletico Madrid 2-0 Huesca
Pacheta is giving Huesca the best chance possible of staying up and can take pride in his work so far, but a seismic shock at the home of the leaders is surely a step too far for his side.
Inconsistency has been the theme for Atletico in recent weeks, but they should have no trouble putting another relegation-threatened side to the sword in midweek, with another clean sheet to boot.
Granada vs. Eibar (Thursday, 8.00pm)
Two teams pining for three points for entirely different reasons lock horns in Thursday's La Liga battle as Granada welcome Eibar to the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes.
The hosts last took to the pitch for their Europa League quarter-final defeat to Manchester United, while Eibar were swept aside by Atletico Madrid in a 5-0 defeat at the weekend.
We say: Granada 2-1 Eibar
Eibar have been Granada's bogey team in recent La Liga seasons, and Mendilibar's current crop will hope to take inspiration from their recent successes against the European hopefuls.
In spite of the fact that the hosts have not covered themselves in glory since the turn of the year, they have had more time to prepare for this encounter and are expected to prolong Eibar's painful winless streak, so we can only back Martinez's side to claim all three points.
Real Sociedad vs. Celta Vigo (Thursday, 8.00pm)
Imanol Alguacil's side were put to the sword by title outsiders Sevilla at the weekend, while Celta Vigo and Cadiz cancelled each other out in a goalless stalemate.
We say: Real Sociedad 2-1 Celta Vigo
If recent tradition is anything to go by, it is Celta's turn to claim all three points in this fixture, but Sociedad are running out of time to register some long-awaited wins and avoid a calamitous collapse in their bid for European football.
The visitors have very little riding on their remaining fixtures compared to Sociedad, and we expect Alguacil's men to take advantage of that fact and end their barren run without victory this week.
Barcelona vs. Getafe (Thursday, 9.00pm)
La Blaugrana thrashed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in last weekend's Copa del Rey final, while Getafe managed to take a point from a goalless stalemate with Real Madrid.
We say: Barcelona 3-0 Getafe
Getafe's defensive solidity is certainly there to be admired, but the other end of the pitch is where their real problems lie, and a staunch Barcelona rearguard should have no trouble nullifying their attackers.
Koeman's side ought to be brimming with confidence after a dominant showing in the Copa del Rey, and three points are of paramount importance to Barca at this late stage of the season, so we predict a resounding home win for the Blaugrana.
