REMEMBER Terry Gibson? Well, we've signed him and while he won't be kicking a football he'll be looking into his crystal ball and bringing us his best Spanish tips every week.
The ex-Spurs, Coventry and Manchester United striker is probably best remembered for his time as part of the infamous Wimbledon Crazy Gang side of the late 80s and early 90s. Now an expert in all things La Liga he works as a pundit and co-commentator on Sky Sports’ Spanish football coverage and is a contributor to unibet.

Barcelona v Deportivo (Sun 7.45pm)

However, I’m going to go for the obvious result in terms of Barcelona winning and whilst I’m at it, go for the obvious opening goal scorer of Lionel Messi In a 3-0 home win.
