Unai Emery's Villarreal will be seeking another win on the road this weekend

There is a Spanish and Dutch focus around this weekend's five teams for your acca with a total payout of more than 13/1 due if Atalanta land the last leg on Sunday evening. 

Saturday, 1pm BST

Villarreal (4/7) to win at Cadiz (9/2), Draw (3/1)

Villarreal have won in Croatia, Israel and Atletico Madrid's Civitas Metropolitano Stadium this season, so a trip to face LaLiga's worst home side should not daunt Unai Emey's men.

Cadiz have lost all three of their previous home league games this term, conceding nine times and failing to score a single goal themselves.

Worryingly for their hopes of avoiding the drop, Sergio Gonzalez's side are creating very few chances and could have lost all three home matches by wide margins were it not for an outstanding performance by their goalkeeper in the 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad.

They needed a goalkeeping slip from Valladolid's number one to break a four-game losing streak last time out and should not receive the same generosity from a defensively sound Villarreal side.

The Yellow Submarines boast the second-best defensive record in Spain's top flight and only four other clubs have scored more away goals so far this season.

Prediction: Villarreal win (4/7)

Saturday, 3.15pm

Getafe (5/4) to beat Valladolid (12/5), Draw (21/10)

Getafe are experiencing their best run of the season in LaLiga after achieving back-to-back wins against Europe-chasing Real Sociedad and Osasuna prior to the international break.

Quique Sanchez Flores' side will fancy their chances at home to struggling Valladolid, who are yet to win away this term, at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The Pucelanos must deal with the loss of ex-Spain international goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo to injury while right-back Luis Perez and midfielder Anuar Tuhami are also out.

An enforced change in goal can lead to uncertainty in defence for the visitors and ought to present Getafe, who should have centre-back Omar Alderete available to make his debut after overcoming injury, with a great chance of making it three wins in a row.

Prediction: Getafe (13/10)

Saturday, 3.30pm

PSV (5/19) to win at Cambuur (8/1), Draw (5/1)

PSV top the Eredivisie standings on goal difference after seven rounds and can expect to win well at lowly Cambuur, who have lost their last four league games.

The Eindhoven club have generally had the Yellow-Blues for breakfast over the past few seasons, winning the last eight head-to-head contests.

Cody Gakpo, who scored for the Netherlands against Poland last week, has been leading PSV's forward line so impressively with eight league goals so far and could bag a few against a Cambuur defence that has leaked 10 goals in their last three outings.

Experienced striker Luuk de Jong looks set to play some part in the game for PSV after missing a month of action because of a calf injury and he may also fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet.

Prediction: PSV to win (5/19)

Saturday, 8pm

Twente (4/6) to beat Vitesse (19/5), Draw (3/1)

Twente are three from three at home this season, including a fantastic performance to beat table-toppers PSV last month, and they will take on a Vitesse side this weekend languishing in 14th place.

Five points from their opening seven games was not enough to keep Thomas Letsch on as head coach of Vitesse and he has been replaced by ex-Derby County boss Phillip Cocu during the international break.

Cocu, who had a failed spell at Fenerbahce before his fruitless time with the Rams, has a lot of work to do to turn the Arnhem club around and is unlikely to spark any immediate revival here.

The Tukkers, who had the better stats in a 2-1 defeat to Heerenveen last time out, will be desperate to get back to winning ways against a team they beat 3-0 at home when they last met in February.

Prediction: Twente to win (4/6)

Sunday, 5pm

Atalanta (19/20) to beat Fiorentina (14/5), Draw (5/2)

Atalanta have won five and drawn two of their Serie A games so far this season and appear to be enjoying the benefits of not featuring in Uefa competitions for the first time in six years.

On Sunday, they host a Fiorentina side that just pipped them to seventh place and the resultant Europa Conference League qualification spot that went with it last term.

La Viola have taken only one point from their first two Thursday night games and have also fallen below their previous standards in Serie A, accumulating just nine points from the first 21 on offer.

A home win over relegation-threatened Verona just before the international break was a step in the right direction, but they have lost their last two away league games to make it five defeats and a draw from their last six on the road - a run that stretches back to last season.

The Black and Blues could also welcome back leading striker Duvan Zapata for this contest after he missed three straight games, although young Danish forward Rasmus Hojlund deputised well and scored the winner at Roma last time out.

Prediction: Atalanta to win (19/20)
