The game finished with a draw which allowed Madrid to move 2 points above them on the title. They played a tough fixture against Espanyol who are most probably getting relegation. Madrid’s performance was subpar but one defensive mistake led to a goal in the first half. Ultimately, the match finished 0:1 in favor of Real Madrid. With 6 rounds to go, they are now in the drivers seat when it comes to the title race. Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, continued with their good form. They defeated Alaves in the previous round to make it 4 wins in just as many games.

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid
The Catalans are slowly losing the title race. They knew coming in after the restart that their job will be much harder. They have a weaker bench and the 5 substitutions are working against them because they play in a way that pressures the opponents constantly. These days, teams just make substitutes when the players on the field get tired which is where Barcelona lose their advantage. On top of that, they have a much harder schedule until the end of the season. The draw against Sevilla was a tough break but playing 2:2 against Vigo in the last round was something that shouldn’t have happened. Now Barcelona have to defeat Atletico Madrid, a side that’s been playing in great form since the restart. However, Atletico have a real bad record when playing on Camp Nou. Even without fans, the stadium has something that puts pressure on opponents.
Simeone’s men were out of the title race long before the lock-down started. Their main objective after the restart was to grab that 3rd spot on the table and hold onto it. So far they have been doing a fantastic job. Atletico have won 4 games in a row and they will be looking to continue that streak. However, that’s easier said than done because for Barcelona this is a match they have to win. Atletico, on the other hand, really need the points as well. At the moment, they have a 4 point advantage over the 4th placed team. If they lose, that advantage could be cut to 1 point which will put them in a tough situation. History is not working for them as well because Atletico haven’t won at Camp Nou since 2006. Simeone revolutionized the team and made them title contenders but in all his years at the helm, he has never defeated Barcelona at home in La Liga.
At the moment, these sides are quite equal. Barcelona might have a little bit more quality but Atletico are in better form. On top of that, both sides need the win, especially Barcelona who are trying to remain in the title race. Atletico have a tough time at Camp Nou which is why we are backing a Home Side Victory @ 1.83 odds.

Valencia vs Athletic Club
This season, Valencia have been up and down in form more than any other side. They did great in the UCL but ended up demolished by Atalanta. In La Liga, their performances were excellent for a part of the season but then their form would drop drastically. Since the restart, things have gone from bad to worse. They have won just 1 game in 5 rounds which caused them to drop out of all the European spots. To make things worse, they are now playing against the Basque lions who are one of the toughest clubs in Spain. However, Valencia’s record against them has been quite good in recent years. They haven’t lost to them since 2016 when Athletic were a far superior side to them. The reverse fixture this season ended with a 0:1 victory for Valencia and their fans will be looking for something similar on Wednesday night.
The Basque side have been really good since the restart. Their only bad result was the loss against Barcelona which was an extremely tight affair. They are attacking for a European spot and thanks to other teams slipping up, Bilbao have a chance to move up to 5th by the end of the season. However, first they need to defeat Valencia which won’t be easy at all. Valencia have been dropping points everywhere and they can’t afford another loss, especially at home. On the other hand, Athletic will be looking for revenge after losing to Valencia in the reverse fixture. Not a lot of teams get to visit San Mames and walk away with all 3 points. Bilbao will be looking to return the favor and defeat Valencia at home like they did back in 2016.
Quality wise, both sides are pretty much equal. However, Bilbao have been in better form as they seem more determined to reach a European spot. Still, Valencia are not going to roll over and give all 3 points to Bilbao. For that reason, we are going with a safer option which is Both Teams to Score @ 2.06 odds.

Real Madrid vs Getafe
The spirits in the Madrid locker-room are as high as ever after the last round. Their victory over Espanyol saw them get a 2 point advantage over Barcelona. However, things are far from over because there are 6 rounds remaining. If Barcelona fail to win their fixture, Madrid will get the opportunity to end the title race sooner than expected. Still, we have to keep in mind that Getafe are no push-over side. They are currently challenging for a Champions League spot and a victory for Madrid is far from guaranteed. Getafe have a very bad record against Madrid in recent years. Some of their fixtures ended with huge victories for Real Madrid. Their fans will hope for something like that come Thursday evening, especially if the title is on the line.
Getafe were fantastic during last season as they accomplished much more than what was expected. This year, they are doing even better as they challenge for a European spot. However, just like last season, Getafe are losing their cool towards the end of the season. If they are to feature in the Champions League or the Europa League next season, Getafe need to get their act together. They have recorded just 1 victory since the restart and it came in the last round. However, the victory was against Real Sociedad, a side that’s extremely tough. Getafe can take a lot of positive things from their performance but they will need to do even better if they hope to get a positve outcome against Real Madrid. They lost the reverse fixture 0:3 so we are sure Getafe will be looking for some revenge come Thursday evening.
Quality wise, Real Madrid are absolute favorites to win this fixture. However, Getafe are fighting for a UCL spot and they won’t go down without a fight. We expect them to be able to score at least 1 goal against Madrid. For that reason, we are backing an Over 2.75 Goals outcome @ 2.03 odds.
