My predictions:

1 Real Madrid - Levante
X Athletic - Betis
1 Celta - Gimnastic
1Deportivo - Mallorca
XEspanyol - Zaragoza
X Osasuna - Barcelona
X Racing - Getafe
1 Valencia - Atlético
1 Sevilla - Real Sociedad
XRecreativo - Villarreal


Much though I'd like to Betis to win, and Luis Fernández certainly looks to have turned things around a bit, I still think its too much to hope for yet.


By the way eldeano, you might find Tim Stannard's blog interesting (if you haven't already discovered it of course).

I know what you mean but Athletic are just pants and they could be on their way down.

Thanks for this - I've bookmarked it. There was a great podcast last year - Laliga podcast - which died a death last August. Pity, they were such clear speakers and it helped satisfy my thirst for La Liga news.

Oh me of little faith. Still, its worth being wrong if it means a 2-1 away win for Betis, and its worth being wrong again if it means its all beginning to unravel for Sevilla with that 0-0 against second bottom at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

So why change from

2 Getafe - Valencia (=away win)
to
2 Valencia- Getafe (=home win)?

Getafe are the home side (which, in Europe, goes before the away team).

What does that mean for all your other choices? I suspect you don't want Levante to win again.
