Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's La Liga action, including Eibar vs. Valencia and Real Betis vs. Espanyol.

Valencia make the trip to the Ipurua Municipal Stadium to face Eibar knowing that only three points will do if they want to boost their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Meanwhile, Eibar head into Thursday's encounter on the back of five games without success, a run which has left the club sitting just above the relegation zone.

We say: Eibar 1-2 Valencia


Despite their contrasting ambitions, we expect this to be a tight contest. However, given their extra urgency to get another three points on the board, Valencia should have enough quality within their squad to edge out their hosts.

Real Betis vs. Espanyol (Thursday, 9.00pm)

Real Betis welcome Espanyol to the Benito Villamarin Stadium knowing that victory may be enough to put 11 points between them and the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, bottom-placed Espanyol head into the contest on Thursday evening sitting five points adrift of 17th-placed Eibar in the La Liga standings.

We say: Real Betis 1-1 Espanyol


Despite the change in the Betis dugout, it remains to be seen whether that will prove to be beneficial with regards to the rest of their season. Taking Espanyol's improvement into consideration, we feel that this game will end in a competitive draw.
