I'VE already tipped wins for Atletico Madrid and Lyon on Sunday night but here are Milesey's thoughts on the games.
Atletico Madrid v Valencia (8pm)
This glittering tie could well be the showpiece of the weekend as two sleeping giants battle it out. Bragging rights are owned by Valencia who won by two goals earlier in the season.
Los Che kept their Champions League credentials alive with a 3-0 victory against Betis who probably deserved more out of the game.
Atletico kept pace with Real with a comfortable 2-0 victory against Osasuna and sit in third place a solitary point behind their city rivals.
Powerful striker Diego Costa celebrated his call-up to the Spanish call with a double to further enhance his form and reputation and now without midweek exertions in Europe and terrific home form (12 wins from 13) a home victory seems likely.
Recommendation: Atletico Madrid to win at 1.74
Lyon v Sochaux (8pm)
Inconsistency has crept in at just the wrong time for Lyon who held realistic ambitions of keeping pace with Paris St Germain. The Parisiaens are in danger of cruising to the title – Lyon are winless in three and have triumphed only twice in seven, not the form of champions.
Remi Garde’s men were dour against Marseille three weeks ago and subsequently endured another Corsican catastrophe, going down 4-1 at Bastia. That said they really ought to roll over 18th-placed Sochaux who have shipped seven goals in two away outings and have managed only one Ligue One victory in eight attempts.
Recommendation: Lyon (-1) on the handicap at 2.32
