La Liga is one of the most popular leagues amongst football fans and punters around the world. The League has and continues to house some of the biggest stars in the world; including Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Similarly, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are three of the most successful clubs in European competitions.
The La Liga, as a subset of Spanish football is famously regarded as the most technical, yet with one of the most eye-pleasing styles in the world. Tiki-taka is a style of football that continues to excite and attract football fans.
This season, Real Madrid and Barcelona were slow off the blocks, with Atletico taking advantage and maintaining a healthy lead at the summit of league.
However, in recent weeks, Diego Simeone’s men have lost the plot. Their form has dwindled conspicuously, allowing the chasing pack to close the gap and reduce the lead to four points.
Hence, with just 11 games to the end of the season, the fight for the La Liga title is the most competitive it can ever be.
There have been observed patterns, so far, that can help punters increase their chances of winning big in the Spanish league.
Goal/Goal In Games Involving Villarreal
Villarreal, at the start of the season, made wholesale changes to the team to compete effectively for a UEFA Champions League spot Serial winner, Unai Emery was also contracted to take charge of the Yellow Submarine.
However, these changes have not yielded the desired impact as Emery’s men are currently placed 7th on the league table.
A reason for this is the club’s terrible attitude of dropping points from winning positions. They presently have the most draws (13) in the division.
In 27 matches played, the Castellon-based side has recorded a fascinating tally of 18 G/G results.
For punters with interest in the La Liga, betting on goal/goal in games involving Villarreal seems sure to deliver great rewards.
Over 2.5 Goals In Games Involving Barcelona
After what seemed like a sluggish start to the season, Barcelona has picked up the pace since the start of the year.
Following the team’s disastrous end to last season, new manager, Ronald Koeman had a lot of work to do to rejuvenate the team. Also, Lionel Messi began the season in the slowest possible way; missing gilt-edged chances and failing to assist teammates.
In the New year, Koeman’s team has created the most goalscoring chances in La Liga. They have scored the most goals (61) in the league this season with the Argentine forward back in form.
On the hand, the Blaugranas (Blue and Reds)have also suffered from injuries to key defenders. As a result, the Catalan giants have conceded the most goals amongst the top-four teams.
16 out of 27 matches involving Barcelona have ended with at least three goals scored.
This option is a must-have for punters who bet in the La Liga market.
Sevilla To Keep A Clean Sheet
This season, Sevilla under Julen Lopetegui has been miserly in defence.
Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos have formed a solid partnership in defence. Fernando in defensive midfield has been a great shield for the back four.
Similarly, the RojiBlancos (Red and Whites) do not score many goals. Moroccan striker, Youssef En-Nesyri has been the major source of goals, scoring 15 of 38 goals scored by the entire team.
Lopetegui’s men are quick to close shop once they open the scoring while reducing their opponents to scrap fights.
Sevilla has kept 15 clean sheets in 27 matches in the Laliga this season.
Backing Sevilla to keep a clean sheet in the league is a great option for punters to take advantage of.
Yellow Cards For Getafe
Getafe has managed to remain relatively successful in La Liga by playing dirty and unfair.
The strategy for the Azulones (Dark Blues) is to consistently break the momentum of the opponent by being physical and committing fouls in less dangerous areas of the pitch.
Allan Nyom has gained a reputation for being the most undisciplined player in Spain with nine yellow cards and 1 red card.
Jose Bordalas’ men have accumulated 88 yellow cards this season (the most in the league)- that is an average of 3.26 cards per game.
Smart punters can also stake on over 6.5 yellow cards in matches in involving Getafe in La Liga.
Over 1.5 Goals In Games Involving Celta Vigo
After surviving relegation on the last day, last season, Celta Vigo has turned the tide and is comfortably in 10th position in the league.
The appointment of Eduardo Coudet in November last year has helped to change the fortunes of Los Celestes (The Sky Blues).
Iago Aspas continues to shoulder the goal-scoring responsibility with nine goals this season.
While Celta Vigo is yet to defeat a top-four team this season, Coudet’s men have done well to score and pick points against the teams in and around them.
In 27 matches involving the Vigo-based club, 24 of them have ended with over 1.5 goals scored.
An over 1.5 goals option for games involving Celta Vigo is almost sure to deliver great rewards.
