La Liga Football Tips


Friday 18th October 2019

Granada v Osasuna

The four most recent meetings today, in the last two seasons, were at Segunda level and all four were Under 2.5 goals. Granada have had a fabulous start to the season and lost only twice in their eight games, and five of those were away. Osasuna have had a decent start losing just once and with five draws. Home advantage could be the big difference here and although Osasuna will be hard to break down, Granada should have too much for them and at 2.38 they are worth a bet to trade for your stake back if they lead.

Eibar v Barcelona

Barcelona don’t seem to have played that well, but they still sit in second place behind Real and travel to Eibar where they have won nine and drawn one of the ten meetings today, the draw being the last game of last season when the title was already theirs. Eibar are unbeaten in four after a poor start, but I cannot see Barca slipping up here. Not a game to get heavily involved in, but Barca -1 on the handicap at 2.30 is worth a small interest.

Atletico Madrid v Valencia

Both are unbeaten in four, but Atletico have drawn three of those four 0-0. They have won the last four head to head in Madrid with three of the four games Over 2.5 goals. Current season stats go against that with only one of eight Atletico games and three of Valencia’s eight games going Over 2.5 goals. It looks like any result is possible here and I was keen on a small lay of Atletico, but the price is a bit big and if you must play, a small interest in Over 2.5 goals with a view to trading, at around 2.10 might pay dividends.

Getafe v Leganes

A local derby with just four recent meetings today, no home wins and in the two games in Getafe, the home side failed to score. On current form, Leganes are impossible to side with six defeats and two draws in their eight games so far. Getafe have at least won twice and also managed four draws so are certain to be strong favourites. Under 2.5 goals is the obvious call but at 1.40 we need to ignore that and a small play on Getafe at 1.91 with a view to trading is a better value option, based on current form.

Mallorca v Real Madrid

Real continue to top the table and are still unbeaten and travel to Mallorca who won their last game following five defeats in six. It is six years since the two met where Real had won the previous five head to head. Real always look likely to concede a goal, but are Mallorca good enough to score, they have drawn a blank in five of eight games so far? Real to win -1 on the handicap at 2.20 may be worth a small involvement.

Real Sociedad v Real Betis

After a good start to the season, Sociedad have lost their last two and take on a Betis side who it is still difficult to get an angle on due to their inconsistencies, won two, drawn three and lost three. In the last six head to head in San Sebastian, five have gone Over 2.5 goals with Sociedad winning four and two draws. The safest option here is probably goals and Over 2.5 goals at 1.73.

Espanyol v Villarreal

If you are looking for a game to end in a draw this weekend, this may be the one, with five of the last seven head to head ending level, including four of the last five in Barcelona. Espanyol have won just once this season and have lost all four at home scoring just one goal. Villarreal are in much better form losing just three games, but they were all away. Correct score trading around 1-1 and 2-2 might offer us some chances to green up.
