Meanwhile, Real Madrid head to Espanyol and Alaves host struggling Rayo Vallecano
Sevilla are looking to get back on track in La Liga and must take all three points when they host Levante in the 21st round of action this coming Saturday afternoon (26 January). The following day, Real Madrid will hope to continue their recent domestic recovery when they head to Espanyol, while Alaves should take all three points against Rayo Vallecano on Monday evening.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, the clash between Sevilla and Levante on Saturday afternoon. Sevilla are struggling for form and confidence at present and have slipped down to fourth, five points behind Atletico Madrid in second – they remain priced short, at just 1.25, to book a place in the top four come the end of the season.
Levante, by way of comparison, sit right in the middle of the table. They are neither in danger of relegation nor of making a push for Champions League qualification, and appear to be one of the few teams in the league with precious little motivation before the month of January is out.
It is therefore Sevilla who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.53, while Levante are out at 6.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.33, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Sevilla to get back to winning ways in front of their own fans. A narrow, 2-1 win for them is priced at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out, while you could almost triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Sevilla win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.75.
Real head to Espanyol looking for third straight league win
The following day, Real Madrid could make it a hat-trick of La Liga victories when they visit a struggling Espanyol outfit. Following a great start to the season, Espanyol have plummeted over recent weeks, losing eight of their last nine league encounters and dropping down to 13th place in the standings.
Real, in stark contrast, look to be finding their rhythm after a rocky patch. They have now won their last two league outings and sit third, but are priced out at 13.00 to actually win La Liga this season – they are currently 10 points behind defending champions and current table toppers Barcelona.
Real do, however, come into this match as the clear favourites to make it three league wins on the bounce. You can back Los Blancos to take the points at just 1.80 while Espanyol, despite home advantage, are out at 4.20 to win – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.
This is a match Real should win with relative ease. A comfortable, 3-1 win for the visitors is priced competitively at 13.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Real win, coupled with both teams scoring, at 3.40.
Alaves need all three points against Rayo Vallecano
And finally, Monday Night Football this week sees Alaves host Rayo Vallecano, with the home side needing all three points if they are to challenge for a spot in the top four. Alaves have taken just one point from their last two league outings and have slipped down to fifth.
Rayo Vallecano, meanwhile, are in deep trouble at the wrong end of the table. They are third from bottom and a point from safety, while you can back them at just 1.66 to fall through the trap door – only Huesca are at a shorter price.
And it is Alaves who come into this match as the favourites to get back to winning ways. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.15, while Rayo Vallecano are out at 3.50 to do the same – a draw comes in just under at 3.30.
This really should be a home win. A 2-0 victory for Alaves is priced at 9.00, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of an Alaves win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 3.60.
