There are three matches in La Liga today, and the favorites are receiving most of the early action at DraftKings Sportsbook.

The action starts at 1:30 p.m ET with Eibar hosting Osasuna at Ipurua Municipal Stadium, the smallest ground in La Liga. Eibar are six points clear of the drop, but likely still have some work to do before the end of the season to stay up. Winners of two in a row against Valencia and Granada, Chilean Fabián Orellana leads all scorers with eight tallies and seven assists this season. Osasuna are stuck in the middle of the table in 12th, but have won two on the trot as well against Alavés and Leganés.

Also at 1:30 p.m. ET Real Sociedad faces an Espanyol that seem destined for the drop. It’s a cataclysmic fall for the Catalan club, who were seventh in the table last season. They’re now on 24 points after 32 matches, 10 points from safety with six rounds to play. It’s a full howler for one of the larger clubs in La Liga, who have scored just 26 goals this year while conceding 51. And with only four points from five matches since the restart, including three straight losses, it’s not looking good.

Finally the giants, Los Blancos y Los Merengues y Los Galácticos depending on your level of fandom, Real Madrid take on Getafe at 4:00 p.m. With Barcelona dropping points to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Real enters with 71 points and a game in hand on their eternal rivals with 70. Karim Benzema has 17 goals in the league this season, and manager Zinedine Zidane is looking to win only his second domestic trophy while at Estadio Bernabéu. The three Champions League titles helps soften that blow.

Getafe have something to play for as well, as even a single point against their neighbors today can help with their campaign for European football next season. The Azulones sit in sixth place, four points ahead of Bilbao for the last Europa League place, but only five points adrift with a game in hand of Champions League glory. Jaime Mata and his teammates will have plenty to play for today.
