Real Madrid head La Liga odds as Barca play catch-up
Real Madrid have risen to the top of the bookies’ La Liga odds following a strong first half of the 2016-17 season, writes Nick.
Madrid came into the campaign on the back of an impressive finish to the previous season and continued that form into an unbeaten run that lasted through to the end of 2016. While they are not always the most collectively impressive side, their ability to transition forward quickly and overwhelm opponents with the sheer number of shots they get off means that they are generally able to emerge victorious even when they don’t totally convince.
Zinedine Zidane (pictured) has also shown an ability to set his side up well to get results against other top sides, as he did in the convincing away win over Atletico Madrid and the away draw with Barcelona during the first half of the season.
Barcelona have won La Liga in six of the last eight seasons and are still Madrid’s most likely challengers despite some struggles. Their summer signings helped bulk out a relatively thin squad but few have made telling contributions to date. Luis Enrique’s side have also lacked control of the midfield zone whenever Andres Iniesta has been unavailable.
The quality of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar up front means that Barcelona always remain a dangerous side but performances so far this season suggest that it is possible to largely cut off the supply line to that trio by pressing them high. There are still plenty of points to play for but unless solutions are found, they may find it difficult to catch Madrid.
Sevilla are close on Barcelona’s heels after putting together their best start to a league season in a decade under new coach Jorge Sampaoli. They eked out a few arguably unjust results in the early part of the season while they were still accustoming themselves to the new regime but now look to have found their rhythm and can be fancied to at least finish in the top four.
Atletico Madrid produced some highly impressive performances in the early part of the campaign before a series of patchy results, including away defeats to top-four rivals, saw them drop off the pace. They are, however, still dominating the shot count against the large majority of their opponents and can be expected to put together a strong closing run.
Despite keen competition from the likes of Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao and surprise package Real Sociedad, we would still expect Atletico Madrid to finish the season in the top four.
While it will be difficult for them to break into the European places, Eibar have been excellent so far this season and barring any major injury problems can be confident of securing their first-ever top-10 finish – a noteworthy achievement for such a small club.
La Liga Relegation Betting Odds Tell A Story
At the other end of the table, there are six or seven teams who have started to drift apart from those more comfortably placed in mid-table.
Granada and Osasuna are both in perilous positions, as the La Liga relegation odds suggest, and it is difficult to see either of them having the necessary quality or smarts to save themselves from the drop. Sporting Gijon are also really struggling but are close enough to a group of teams made up of Deportivo La Coruna, Leganes, Real Betis and Valencia to suggest that survival is still possible.
Valencia began the season with four consecutive defeats and ended the calendar year with a seven-match winless streak. The club have already gone through two full-time coaches and continue to display incompetence at every level. The most likely scenario is that they will be able to pull clear of the relegation places in the second half of the campaign but the negative atmosphere enveloping the club will make that a harder task than it really should be.
Above the bottom group, Alaves have caused a few upsets on their return to the Primera Division following a 10-year absence and have been the most impressive of the newly promoted teams. They can be expected to drop down from the fringes of the top 10 towards the lower reaches of the table as the campaign wears on but have shown enough to suggest that they should be able to retain their top flight status for another season fairly comfortably.
