LA LIGA PREVIEW: Our European football tipster The Ultra previews Thursday’s La Liga games between VALENCIA v OSASUNA and EIBAR v ATLETICO MADRID both with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
VALENCIA V OSASUNA
6pm A massive Thursday night in La Liga! We have four teams in action and each have a vital fixture. We start with Valencia hosting Osasuna with both teams in a relegation battle. A quick glance at the table might discount Valencia, but they are only four points ahead of Osasuna who sit in 19th. There’s really nothing in it towards the bottom of the table and these games are massive six pointers. We have a fascinating market too on BETDAQ Betting Exchange, with Valencia big favourites despite Osasuna performing better this season. Valencia might be four points ahead of Osasuna, but xG says Osasuna are the better side.
Osasuna were unlucky to lose last weekend away to Granada, perhaps a sign of how their season has gone. They don’t create enough and that has been their main problem this season. However, they have been tough to beat recently. Given Valencia have been so poor this season, I have to take them on here at 2.14. I must say the Osasuna back is very tempting at 3.9, but Valencia are simply too short to ignore the lay. For all that Osasuna struggle to create chances – Valencia concede chances for fun so I’m very happy with the Valencia lay here at the odds. I can see a much, much closer game than 2.14 suggests.
The Ultra Says:
Three points lay (liability) Valencia to beat Osasuna at 2.14 with BETDAQ Betting Exchange

EIBAR V ATLETICO MADRID
8.30pm We have another massive La Liga clash this evening as Eibar host league leaders Atletico Madrid. Eibar are right in the mix for relegation so they will have a keen interest in Valencia v Osasuna earlier, but the position of Atletico Madrid grows stronger with each passing week at the top of La Liga. Real Madrid closed them down as the gained good momentum before Christmas, along with beating Atletico, but they have dropped points since and now Atletico are four points clear with two games in hand. They are even further ahead of Barcelona, and they simply must convert this opportunity into a title this season.
Atletico were very lucky to win last time out against Sevilla. They won 2-0, but the game finished with an xG of 2.68 to 0.52 to Sevilla! That was one of the luckiest results of the La Liga season. However, Atletico look massive at 1.76 here to beat an average Eibar side. Eibar will say they have performed much better than their current position in the table locked in a relegation battle, and they did manage to hold Barcelona to a draw recently. However they were very lucky to do so looking at the xG. Atletico have been excellent this season, and Eibar simply give away too many chances to ignore the 1.76. I’d have them closer to 1.6. We landed a nice bet on Sevilla earlier in the week and we can land another nice bet here.

Four points win Atletico Madrid to beat Eibar at 1.76 with BETDAQ Betting Exchange
