La Liga Trading Focus: 3rd-5th Nov 2018

La Liga Football Betting Tips


La Liga continues this weekend and, as always, we’ve got the best of the action covered.

A great performance from Barcelona heaped the pressure on Real Madrid who now sit ninth in La Liga and by the time you read this, there is likely to be a new manager in place at the Bernabeu. Alaves continue to surprise the pundits after coming from behind to net a late winner against Villarreal and Betis once again disappointed in struggling at Getafe, after a fine win in midweek against Milan. I am leaving the Real Madrid game alone as they could have a new manager by the weekend and that often inspires the players so could lead to a change in formation etc.

Leganes v Atletico Madrid

A local derby and Leganes will be up for this after their victory over Barcelona in September. The problem is that Leganes are poor and Barca were out of form at the time and Atletico are unlikely to slip up here. Those looking for a reason to Lay Atleti can pin their hopes on the fact that in the two meetings today between the two in Leganes, the games both ended 0-0. Atletico tend to get the game won and then hold on, so a 1-0 or 2-0 win is quite likely as the Under 2.5 market is only 1.50. Better value is to keep it simple and bet Atleti at 1.67 or include them in your multi bets.

Rayo Vallecano v Barcelona

A Messi-less Barcelona looked to be coming back to form with an impressive display in El Clásico and with the added boost of Suarez finding his scoring touch. Vallecano are really struggling and have managed just two points at home this season and this is a fixture that Barcelona do well in. In the last ten head to head they have won them all scoring forty-three and conceding just five. The five games in Vallecano ended 1-5, 0-2, 0-4, 0-5 and 0-7. It could be argued that 1.30 is a decent price for Barcelona but as they also led at HT in all those ten games, a better value bet is Barcelona HT/FT currently around 1.80.

Eibar v Alaves

Alaves are currently second in the table completely on merit and have won their last three against Real, Celta and Villarreal. They are full of confidence and travel to Eibar who have won only three times this season. In the four recent games between the two, three finished Under 2.5 goals. Alaves would be the obvious shout here at 3.75 and a small stake is advised with a view to trading if they lead.

Real Sociedad v Sevilla

A fixture that has seen goals in recent seasons, four of the last six meetings today in San Sebastián have been Over 2.5 goals including three of the last four. Sevilla’s last six games have all gone Over 2.5 goals and six of Sociedad’s ten games this season have done the same. Over 2.5 goals is 1.70 and that is a fair price but as they have won three of the last four head to head at home, a small interest on Sociedad at 2.80, with a view to trading if they go ahead, could be the way to go.

Espanyol v Athletic Bilbao

Espanyol have also been a surprise to many and their home form is as good as anyone’s with four wins from four home matches. Bilbao have drawn their last four away and now have seven draws from ten games this season after their 0-0 draw with Valencia at the weekend. In the last six head to head at Espanyol, there have been three home wins and three draws. The obvious play would be to bet Espanyol in the draw no bet market, but they are 1.30 and they can be backed at 1.90 to win the game and trade for your stake back if they lead.
