La Liga Betting Predictions: Barcelona Primed for El Clasico

Barcelona capped off a fine week with a 3-0 La Liga win over Atletico Madrid at the Metropolitano Stadium, extending their unbeaten run to 10 games

Xavi Hernandez’s Barcelona side were also successful in midweek against Italian opposition in the Champions League, but a lack of intensity against Atleti saw the Catalan outfit second best to everything in the opening half hour.

However, the Blaugrana managed to sneak a one-goal lead heading into the break before scoring two more in the second half.

Robert Lewandowski was the MVP of the match as the Polish striker found his scoring boots and we expect him to extend his great run of form so if you love your La Liga soccer props, you should back him to score more and more.

Xavi will have one last trip to the Santiago Bernabeu as manager if, as he has said, he is leaving the Blaugrana at the end of the season. His spot on the bench had been threatened by a suspension, but he will instead miss games against Las Palmas and Cadiz.

 

Bilbao Makes Way into Top Four

Unbeaten in their last 13 La Liga matches on home soil, Ernesto Valverde’s men knew a victory over mid-table Alaves would see them leapfrog Atletico Madrid into fourth place.

Even given their somewhat longshot soccer betting line, it’s impressive that they sit above the likes of Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid. With just one point above fifth-placed Bilbao, they are still fighting for a Champions League spot.

Unbeaten when scoring first in La Liga this season (13 wins in 16 games), Bilbao showed no signs of pressure in their games, even against the top teams in the standings. They will be big underdogs in Las Vegas odds when they return from the break to visit first-place Real Madrid.

 

Thibaut Courtois out for several weeks

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has undergone a successful surgery after sustaining a meniscus tear in his right knee during training

Courtois was expected to return to Real’s squad after spending several months on the sidelines following an ACL tear in his left knee in August.

He made 31 league appearances for Real last season but has yet to play for his club in this campaign.

Real, who are top of the La Liga standings and eight points above rivals Barcelona, host Athletic Bilbao on March 31. Los Blancos enter this clash as favorites being priced at -167 with the latest soccer odds.

 

Almeria Wins First Game

At the 29th time of asking, Almeria finally ended their excruciating wait for a first La Liga win of the season by beating Las Palmas 1-0 to leave the Yellows without a victory in five matches.

They are still sitting bottom of the table with just 13 points to their name after 29 rounds, 14 points behind the first salvation spot, and you should continue to fade them in La Liga betting predictions.

 

 

 

 

Questions Of The Day

Will Joao Felix play for Barcelona next season?


Barcelona is planning to make Joao Felix’s loan move permanent, but Atletico Madrid’s demands for the playmaker are too expensive.
FC Barcelona maintains its intention to keep Felix for one more season on loan, but Atletico de Madrid is only considering selling him for $100m.

Will Real Madrid sign Alphonso Davies in the summer?


It’s no secret that Alphonso Davies is a top target for Real Madrid this summer, but Bayern Munich have been adamant that there is a chance he stays in Bavaria this summer. The Canadian left-back has Bayern’s final contract offer on the table, but has yet to respond to it.
As was the case with Jude Bellingham, it looks as if Real Madrid will get a deal done for a player they had lined up long in advance. No doubt Davies’ contract situation is beneficial for them, but Los Blancos have moved ahead of a number of other top sides, and are set to reap the benefits.
