Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's La Liga fixtures, including Barcelona vs. Espanyol.

Celta Vigo vs. Villarreal (Saturday, 1.00pm)

Villarreal will look to kickstart a climb up the La Liga table on Saturday, when they make the trip to take on Celta Vigo.

The two sides both sit in the bottom half of the table after disappointing starts by their own standards, having each won just three league games so far after finishing eighth and seventh last term respectively.

We say: Celta Vigo 1-1 Villarreal

While Villarreal boast the stronger squad and could be confident after an important victory prior to the international break, home advantage for Celta Vigo somewhat levels the playing field, and we predict a share of the spoils.

With both sides struggling for consistency and keen to start grinding out results, we do not see either taking control and instead expect a cagey affair resulting in a low-scoring draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Sevilla vs. Alaves (Saturday, 3.15pm)

Sevilla will look to stretch their league unbeaten run to six games on Saturday, when they play host to Alaves.

After an impressive start to the season, the hosts sit third in the La Liga table, while their visitors have climbed off the foot thanks to an upturn in form of their own.

We say: Sevilla 2-1 Alaves

While Alaves have shown major improvements recently and will be a tough proposition for any side, they face a formidable Sevilla outfit.

We ultimately see the hosts standing strong to earn a hard-fought three-point haul on home turf.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Atletico vs. Osasuna (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Atletico Madrid will look to bounce back to winning ways following the international break, as they welcome Osasuna to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday.

The defending champions currently sit fourth in the La Liga table, while their visitors remain in seventh spot after two consecutive defeats, having enjoyed a strong start of their own.

We say: Atletico Madrid 2-1 Osasuna

While they have struggled for consistency recently, we cannot look past a victory for the La Liga champions on Saturday.

They are certainly not playing at the peak of their powers, but we back Simeone's men to grind out a hard-fought home win against a side who are experiencing a slump against the league's top sides.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Barcelona vs. Espanyol (Saturday, 8.00pm)

The era of Xavi's management of Barcelona will kick off on Saturday, as the Blaugrana welcome Espanyol to the Camp Nou.

The Barca legend will be tasked with lifting the side up the La Liga table, after Ronald Koeman was sacked with the Catalan giants sitting ninth.

We say: Barcelona 2-1 Espanyol

While it may take time to fully implement his ideas, we see the return of a Barcelona legend as manager providing the boost the players need to get over the line on Saturday.

Defeating a resilient Espanyol side will certainly not be straightforward, but we ultimately see the Blaugrana having enough to make a winning start under Xavi.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
