IT'S all about Spain for me today with Atletico Madrid the first port of call in the early kick-off.
Despite splashing out big money on top talent including Thomas Lemar and Rodri this summer Diego Simeone's men have made a stuttering start to the season.
They've already dropped five points in three games and will be desperate to get back to their stubborn old ways after a 2-0 defeat at Celta Vigo in their last game before the international break.
Today's visitors are Eibar who've lost two of their three outings this term and have an awful head-to-head record with seven defeats and a draw in eight La Liga meetings.
Simeone's success at Atleti has always been built on a miserly defence and it's back to basics as they bid to relaunch their campaign so the home win and under 3.5 match goals appeals at 10-11 with Ladbrokes.
In the teatime tussle I'm backing Valencia to get their first victory of the campaign when Real Betis visit the Mestalla. Valencia's home form last season was the main reason they bagged a top-four finish and they have more than enough quality to get up and running tonight.
Betis have netted just once in three outings – Joaquin's derby winner against Sevilla last time out – and lost home and way to Valencia last term. The hosts are backable at 8-11 with Ladbrokes.
The final call is goals when Real Madrid bid to continue their perfect start at Athletic Bilbao. Both sides have seen plenty of goals in their games so far and four of the last six head-to-heads have gone over 2.5, with same again paying 4-7 at Ladbrokes.
- Atletico Madrid win & under 3.5 goals (12pm)
- Valencia (5.30pm)
- Bilbao v Real Madrid over 2.5 goals (7.45pm)
- (4-1, Ladbrokes)
