Bookies La Liga Odds Can’t Split Real Madrid & Barcelona
Barcelona and Real Madrid have won La Liga in 12 of the last 13 seasons and it would take a brave gambler to bet against one of the pair again lifting the Primera Division title in the 2017-18 season, writes Nick. Indeed the bookmakers’ La Liga odds in the comparison table above make it 33/1 or bigger any other team.
Real Madrid broke a four-year duck to secure last season’s title in Zinedine Zidane’s first full season at the helm. They had a few stumbles along the way but put together enough consecutive victories at key stages, including a six-game sequence to finish the campaign, to emerge as champions, three points clear of Barcelona in second.
There were times during the season in which it felt that Madrid’s success had more to do with the individual qualities of their squad members than a coherent playing style but that started to change towards the end of a campaign that also brought a second consecutive Champions League trophy. Their summer business has again lowered the age of the squad and with new signings and returning loanees, they are constructing a core for the future.
On paper, Madrid enter the new campaign with a stronger squad than their likely challengers Barcelona, who will have some reorganising to do following the departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee. Ernesto Valverde has arrived from Athletic Club to replace outgoing coach Luis Enrique and has his work cut out to merge new signings with those left over from Barcelona’s questionable business last summer.
Barcelona and Madrid are evenly rated by the best of the UK sports betting sites and although Madrid should probably be considered marginal favourites, there is likely to be little in it.
Atletico Madrid are the only other side to have won La Liga in the last 13 years and are the only other team shorter than 50/1 in the La Liga odds for outright winner at some bookies and 100/1 at most to lift the trophy this time around. Diego Simeone remains in charge for the move to their new stadium and while they should be fancied to finish in the top four, a transfer ban that has prevented them from adding to their squad this summer means that it is unlikely they will surprise the big two.
Sevilla secured their first top-four finish in six years by coming home fourth last time out and their off-season transfer business has been sufficiently impressive to suggest that they should again be the favourites to take the final Champions League qualifying spot. Eduardo Berizzo did excellent work at Celta Vigo and has a talented squad at his disposal.
Basque sides Athletic Club and Real Sociedad are among the strongest candidates to put pressure on the Champions League places. Athletic have been able to retain their best players, while La Real will hope to continue the progress they made under Eusebio Sacristan last season. Villarreal will also hope to challenge and have top-six finishes in each of the last four seasons as evidence of their credentials to do so.
Eibar and Espanyol both enjoyed excellent seasons last time out and will hope to build on that this time around.
Ahead of every Primera Division season, there always seems to be a couple of teams who enter the campaign in a positive mood following changes that they hope will bring about an improvement in their fortunes. Real Betis had a false start on that front last year but a change of sporting director, some solid signings and the appointment of former Las Palmas coach Quique Setien has seen record numbers of supporters renew their season tickets.
Valencia endured a tumultuous campaign last time out, with relegation even a serious possibility at one stage, but despite limited activity in the transfer market, are hopeful that new coach Marcelino will be capable of at least steering them to a top-10 finish.
The likes of Celta Vigo and Malaga will also have designs on breaking into the top half, while Alaves and Las Palmas will simply be seeking to avoid a downturn in fortunes following the departures of their influential coaches of last season.
Girona Top La Liga Relegation Odds
Alaves are probably the more vulnerable of those two sides but in truth both should be relatively safe as there are other more likely relegation candidates.
Looking at those la Liga relegation betting odds, Girona will benefit from an influx of loanees from parent club Manchester City but remain the bookies’ favourites for the drop alongside fellow newly promoted side Getafe. Leganes and Levante (the Segunda Division champions) will also be in the mix, as, in all probability, will Deportivo La Coruna.
