LLTO La Liga Picks of the Week (Oct. 24-25)

Sevilla has been among the world’s best this year and will likely overcome their frustrating loss last week by beating 2-0.  has had a tough start to the year and has been among the league’s biggest disappointments.  Mallorca on the other hand has been a nice surprise this year and is among the teams that make up the top half of the league table.  I’ll take Mallorca in this 2-1.  Getafe hosts Athletico Bilbao in a match that pits two struggling teams up against one another.  I like Getafe to win 2-1. 

Villarreal will win a game!  Maybe I didn’t take my crazy pills this week and maybe I did, but either way the Yellow Submarines will submerge to the surface and no longer be the league’s laughing stock.  beats 2-1.  Racing Santander plays against Osasuna at the worst time.  Osasuna is red hot right now and is coming off of a 3-0 victory last weekend.  This weekend they will win 3-1 over Racing.

In our LLTO Match of the Week Sporting Gijon hosts .  Sporting has been real hot as of late and Real Madrid is desperate to prove their loss earlier in the week a fluke.  I like Madrid minus their biggest star simply because they do have that many other players around to help support the cause.  Madrid wins 3-2. 

As for the final four games of the weekend: will win a nailbiter against Almeria 1-0, new boys will battle it out as Tenrife will win at home over Xerez, Valladolid will lose at home against Deportivo La Coruna 2-0, and in the final match of the week will destroy Real Zaragoza 4-0 thanks to a few goals form Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
