Weel 22 preview: Can Madrid help Madrid?

Can Madrid help Madrid?
Banana skins afoot this weekend. There are several fixtures which should be easy on paper but... but. In form Bilbao should beat Gijon, but Gijon are also in fine form (see last 3 weeks). Villarreal should hand a pasting to Levante, but this is a local derby, anything could happen. Real Madrid must surely get back to winning ways against Sociedad, but Sociedad have been handy away from home recently. And every neutral would like to see Barcelona slip up against Atletico Madrid, if only for a hope the title race, could re-open.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid

Atletico are wobbly. No reason for Barca not to score 4 or 5. Any of Barca's front three could do the trick. Pedro is on a hot run of form.

At. Bilbao v Sporting Gijon

Both sides in great form, but Bilbao have been particularly strong on the stat scoring front in recent weeks. Llorente and Muniain up front through to Iraoriz in goal should all post good returns. If Gijon win this, it will be another shock.

Real Madrid v Sociedad

Surely Madrid will pick themselves up and get back to winning ways against the Basques. A good chance that Adebayor will start after his goalscoring feat in the cup on Wednesday and he represents excellent value at 8.4 in Fantasy world. Expect lots of shots from Ronaldo as per usual.

Villarreal v Levante

A local derby, but a match of the ilk of Bilbao v Gijon: the home side could easily be in for a shock. Villarreal have no new injury worries and Rossi is on hot, hot form. Sensible money would be on Villarreal and any of their attacking players.

Osasuna v Mallorca

Would expect a home win for Osasuna on the back of last week's triumph over Real. Mallorca however, will have been wounded by their shocking 4-0 turn around at home to Gijon. This match will show whether that was a blip or whether the islanders are on the slide. Osasuna's Ricardo surely a solid pick in gk.

Sevilla's Javi Varas. Great value
Special Bargain of the week:

Seville's J. Varas represents the bargain of the week at 4.46. At home to Malaga, the GK can expect a score well in place of the injured Palop.
