    Girona slipped up on matchday No. 14 of the La Liga season, allowing Real Madrid to overtake them in the standings on goal difference.

    Four teams are currently separated by a mere four points in the La Liga title race. Meanwhile, Almeria sit rock bottom in the standings ahead of the weekend.

    Real Madrid – Granada

    Real Madrid went unbeaten in their last six La Liga games. On Saturday, they will host 19th-place Granada. On paper, Los Blancos should have no issue winning at the Bernabeu versus Los Rojiblancos.

    Madrid won all six of their last six fixtures against Granada in all competitions. Carlo Ancelotti’s team picked up 14 points from their last six matches in the league, scoring 15 times and conceding just three goals.

    Granada took two points from the last six games. They were outscored 12-6 by those six opponents. Granada’s last two games finished with both teams scoring.

    • Real Madrid haven't lost any of their last 17 home matches in all competitions.
    • Granada CF's most recent record consists of 3 straight away half time/full time losses in La Liga.
    • Real Madrid haven't lost a match in 24 of their last 25 home matches in La Liga.
    • Granada CF have conceded 1+ goals in all of their last 14 La Liga games.
    • Prediction: Real Madrid to win.


    Girona – Valencia

    Girona need to win against Valencia to keep pace with Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga standings. However, Valencia won four of their last six games versus Girona.

    Last season’s games between the clubs were low-scoring, with the home side winning each by a 1-0 score.

    Valencia are ninth in the standings and winless in their last two games. Los Che scored just one goal across those two matches and conceded five times.

    Girona will look to take advantage of Valencia’s poor attack. Los Rojiblancos went unbeaten in their last six games, winning five times before drawing 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao last weekend. Girona lead La Liga in goals scored with 32.

    • Girona FC are undefeated in their last 7 all competitions games in a row.
    • In their 7 most recent matches of all competitions, Valencia CF have been undefeated 6 times.
    • Girona FC score an average of 2.27 goals in their matches in all competitions.
    • We have seen Valencia CF concede 1+ goals in their last 11 away matches in La Liga.
    • Prediction: Both teams to score.

    Mallorca - Deportivo Alaves

    Mallorca posted a record of 3W-1D-2L against Deportivo Alaves in their last six head-to-head encounters. The Islanders are looking for another win against Alaves, as these teams clash for the first time since 2021-22.

    Alaves won just two of their last six matches in La Liga. One of those wins came last weekend against Granada, who sit in the relegation zone. Alaves have not won on the road this season and go into the match on a two-game away losing streak.

    Mallorca are just one point above the relegation zone. They failed to win any of their last six matches and go into the weekend on a two-game losing streak. Mallorca drew each of their last four home matches. They have not won at home this season.

    • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in Real Mallorca's last 6 matches in La Liga.
    • On average, Deportivo Alavés have scored 0.57 goals in their last away matches in La Liga.
    • Real Mallorca score an average of 0.67 goals in their home all competitions matches.
    • Deportivo Alavés have won just 1 of their last 14 away matches in all competitions.
    • Prediction: Under 2.5 goals.


    Almeria - Real Betis

    Almeria are bottom of the La Liga standings. Six points separate them from safety going into matchday No. 15.

    The future looks bleak for Almeria, and Real Betis won’t make matters easy for them on Sunday. Real Betis did the domestic double over Almeria last season.

    Both games in 2022-23 saw both teams score and over 2.5 goals. Almeria conceded the most goals in the opening 14 games with 37. Their last two matches, both defeats, saw over 2.5 goals.

    Real Betis are on a good run of form, going unbeaten in their last six La Liga games. Los Rojiblancos are seventh in the standings and one point of the top five.

    Betis have struggled on the road, posting a record of 1W-4D-2L. Their last four road games were stalemates.

    • UD Almería are on a run of 6 consecutive defeats in their domestic league.
    • Real Betis are undefeated in their last 13 all competitions games in a row.
