It was another great to week to bet on La Liga last weekend as the top five clubs of the table secured a win. Madrid continued cementing on their success with a win away from home against Osasuna while their title rivals Barcelona steamrolled over Deportivo Alaves, which finished six to the good. Sevilla managed to defeat Las Palmas at the Gran Canaria stadium, an unparalleled feat by any team this season. Atletico Madrid had to come from behind to secure all three points against Celta de Vigo and are now unbeaten in their last seven La Liga encounters. We’ll delve a little deeper into the betting information you should be analysing when placing a bet on La Liga for the weekend.
Bet on Madrid
Los Blancos are still league leaders despite having played two games less than their rivals Barcelona. They had a relatively easy fixture on paper, but Madrid looked a little edgy but nonetheless, collected all three points. Espanyol are next on Madrid’s hit list and with odds at 9/50, but the bet won’t return a healthy profit. Four from Madrid’s last five games saw them opening the score in the first half, effectively winning it and half time betting could be a smarter and more profitable bet. Madrid to win both halves is priced at 7/6, well worth adding to your accumulator bet. Zidane’s men found the net 14 times in five games and betting on goals can be considered as a relatively safe bet. All Madrid’s last five games ended in over 2.5 goals and odds for both teams to score are set at 87/100. Madrid only managed to keep two clean sheets from their last five matches at the Bernabéu.
Bet on Barcelona
Mid-week European football has been a nightmare for the Catalan side, and La Liga betting fans will hope Barcelona’s horrendous result won’t affect their upcoming encounter against Leganes, a squad that’s lingering just outside the relegation zone. Barcelona are the highest scoring team of La Liga and in the last five matches alone, they found the net 19 times. Odds for Barcelona to win are not even worth considering, which is why half time betting and betting on goals might be better options.
Barcelona to win both halves is priced at 41/50 and odds for Barcelona to win with a clean sheet are priced at 13/20. The Catalan giants kept clean sheets in four of their most recent five La Liga matches and La Liga betting enthusiasts will be expecting them not to concede against the team with the least scored goals in La Liga.
Bet on Sevilla
Sevilla maintained third place of La Liga and are now four points clear of Atletico Madrid, securing the last spot for automatic Champions League qualification. Sevilla collected all three points at La Palmas, a squad neither Madrid nor Barcelona could overcome. Now Sevilla host Eibar next, a team that’s buzzing from their three consecutive victories. Eibar won four of their last five matches of La Liga and their incredible form poses a dangerous threat to Sevilla’s ambitions. Odds for overcoming Eibar are priced at 49/100 and odds for both teams to score are 19/25. Sevilla only managed to keep one clean sheet from their last five three of them finished in over 2.5 goals. Eibar are very capable of getting something out of this game, especially since they found the net 14 times in their last five La Liga matches.
