Respite from Liga woes for Villarreal


Villarreal find themselves involved in the La Liga relegation battle but can put that to one side as they focus on the Copa del Rey this evening, and they have a chance to seize the advantage by claiming a first leg victory over Espanyol.

Villarreal to win @ 6/5

The Yellow Submarine appear to be turning a corner after holding Real Madrid at El Madrigal before claiming another point at Eibar.

The cup could be viewed as a distraction given their precarious league position, but this home game against an out-of-sorts Espanyol offers them a chance to get back to winning ways and I am expecting boss Luis Garcia to field a strong starting XI.

Espanyol have lost seven of their last 10 games and away from home the Catalan outfit have really struggled, with just one win on their travels all season and four straight defeats ahead of this clash.

At odds against Villarreal look good value in this Copa del Rey fixture and if you are feeling a little bolder the 12/5 on a home win to zero also appeals.

Houston Rockets @ 21/20

Houston really struggled at the start of the NBA season but have hit some form and the Rockets can make a statement by downing Eastern Conference leaders Milwaukee Bucks overnight.

The Rockets lost their opening four home games but have since been beaten just once in 15 games at the Toyota Center.

Houston have won 10 in a row at home and can claim a big win over the Bucks, who have been inconsistent at times on the road with a 9-7 record overall.
