Sunday's La Liga predictions including Sevilla vs. Real Betis

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Sunday's La Liga fixtures, including Sevilla vs. Real Betis.

Celta Vigo vs. Athletic Bilbao (Sunday, 1.00pm)

Athletic Bilbao will make the short trip to Galicia this weekend for their mid-table tussle with 8th-placed Celta Vigo at the Estadio Municipal de Balaidos.

Tied on 33 points, a win for either of these sides would thrust them into the upper reaches of La Liga, where the hunt for European football is hotting up.

We say: Celta Vigo 2-2 Athletic Bilbao

These are two fairly equally matched sides and Athletic definitely have a penchant for a draw. Celta play with a certain unpredictably that borders on chaos, so expect goals, but maybe not a decisive outcome.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Granada vs. Real Sociedad (Sunday, 3.15pm)

Imanol Alguacil's high-flying Real Sociedad side will travel to Andalusia this weekend for their La Liga clash with Granada at the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on Sunday.

Three points for La Real could see them leapfrog Sevilla into fourth place, while a win for Granada could see them enter the race for Europa League football next season.

We say: Granada 1-3 Real Sociedad

Granada have been poor in the league in recent weeks, and they have the worst defence in the division. We think La Real will keep them busy all afternoon and get the goals necessary to keep their dream of a top-four finish alive.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Eibar vs. Villarreal (Sunday, 5.30pm)

Unai Emery's embattled Villarreal side travel to the Basque Country this weekend for their La Liga clash with Eibar at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Sunday.

Villarreal's winless streak of eight league games is bettered only by Eibar's run of nine games without a win. The difference, however, is that the former are chasing a top-four finish while the latter are heading for the Segunda Division.

We say: Eibar 1-1 Villarreal

Eibar do not look capable of beating anyone at the moment, but Villarreal have also been playing exceptionally poorly in the league. We do not think anything will be able to separate these two sides.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Sevilla vs. Real Betis (Sunday, 8.00pm)

La Liga will see history forged this weekend as Sevilla and Real Betis play their 100th top-flight Sevillian derby. Sevilla have won 46 of the last 99 encounters, while Betis have emerged victorious in just 30.

El Gran Derbi will be hosted at Sevilla's Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and three points for either side would do wonders for their respective Champions League ambitions.

We say: Sevilla 0-2 Real Betis

We think El Gran Derbi has a shock on the cards for us. Betis have been awful at times this season, but at the moment they just look manic and more than capable of pulling off the spectacular. Sevilla are recovering from a poor spell and we think Betis will take advantage of that. Expect a late goal from Joaquin.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.
