La Liga Betting Tips

Our La Liga tips and predictions page allows visitors to the site to see the difference between bets that solely include football matches played within Spanish La Liga. More often than not, these bets are formed into accumulators or multiples of any variation, with the only clause being that they only surface on Spanish football, where you’ll see any outcomes from Spanish football fixtures added to our specialised football tips pages.

Spain is one of the best-known countries for quality football, and betting on La Liga has become a more common activity due to the massive demand from those watching it unfold every season. It’s the same situation with the German Bundesliga, French Ligue 1 and the Italian Serie A, and with each different football league, you’ll find different features which make each of them individual.

Whether you’re considering betting on the winner of a specific match, the number of goals, the possibility of both teams scoring, handicaps, or a chosen player to score or get booked, every option regarding Spanish football matches will be found on this specialised page, with hints and tips regarding how best to find value in betting on football matches in Spain. We update the page on a regular basis in an attempt to remain prepared for current trends in Spain, and you’ll often find bets that abide by these trends on our tips pages at any point where we decide to include a Spanish football fixture.

By regularly referring to this page, you won’t only be able to find the latest trends within typical La Liga football bets, but it’ll also help you with working out how to judge your own bets when it comes to Spanish fixtures. Each football league holds different values and trends that occur more than other divisions, and you’ll find the same situation with Spanish football, where avid fans will recognise each team’s strengths and weaknesses.

Choosing to bet on the stronger teams throughout Europe often comes with an extremely short price, so there’s a lot of hazards with betting on Spanish football due to two being involved, both Real Madrid and Barcelona being recognised La Liga clubs at such a standard. Something to consider when it comes to this is who they’re playing and how they’re playing, as adding the both teams to score market to a bet based around Barcelona or Real Madrid can enhance the odds, even if they’re still expected to win.

In betting on Real Madrid or Barcelona defeating other reputable teams in Spain, it could be the case that either team win by a large deficit, but conceding at all can make all the difference, transforming a 1/3 match result market into a 5/2 match result & both teams to score market. You could also include a handicap if you’re certain of the number of goals that either Real Madrid or Barcelona might win by.

One thing that regularly occurs in Spain is goals, and there’s often a case for backing over 2.5 goals in most games. The only exception would be at absolute fortresses such as Atletico Madrid’s Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, or arguably at Real Sociedad’s Anoeta. It would be worth considering backing over 2.5 goals in most other instances, especially if Real Madrid or Barcelona are playing away from home.

History of La Liga

The club director of Arenas Club de Getxo proposed the idea for a Spanish national football league in 1927, and by 1929, it was officially something that would come into action, with all of Athletic Bilbao, Real Union, Real Sociedad, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Racing de Santander and his own club Arenas Club de Getxo part of the first ever La Liga season. Since the league was first created at the start of the twentieth century, only three of the founding clubs that featured in the first ever edition of La Liga have been relegated, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao falling to the second tier in past years.

The Mediterranean League offered an additional tier system for every team in Spain apart from both Madrid clubs, but this ended up only happening between 1937 and 1938, as the newly-formed Spanish football league became more important than this alternative division. Barcelona won the seldom Mediterranean League season, eventually asking the Royal Spanish Football Federation to include it as one of their title wins, where they were given approval seventy years after they won the title.

Real Madrid are the most successful club in La Liga, winning the title thirty-three times. Barcelona are known to be their closest competitor in clinching the title twenty-six times, with every other team falling far behind by comparison. Atletico Madrid hold the third most wins in La Liga, finishing top ten times, followed by Athletic Bilbao with eight wins, Valencia with six, Real Sociedad with two, and all of Deportivo La Coruna, Sevilla and Real Betis winning the league once each in their history.

2018/19 La Liga season

Finishing eleven points ahead of the second-place side, Barcelona won the league by a distance with very little competition from any other team in La Liga. It wasn’t even the perfect season for Barca, failing to win the Copa del Rey against Valencia and notably ruining a 3-0 lead over Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals to lose 4-0 in the second leg, but this is an indication of how poor other teams were, leaving Barcelona to win La Liga with ease.

It was a controversial end for the Madrid-based sides, as Atletico Madrid finished ahead of Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane started the term away from the Bernabeu after stepping down as manager, returning before the end of the season in order to save what was left of their dire season. He could only get them to third, with Atleti beating them to the place below Barcelona, finishing ahead of their derby rivals by eight points. Valencia sealed the fourth Champions League place despite only managing draws for a lot of the season, finding stronger form towards the end of the term.

A fierce fight was conducted in the battle for qualification to the Europa League, with Getafe, Sevilla and Espanyol eventually sealing fifth, sixth and seventh to halt the outside advances of Athletic Bilbao, Real Sociedad, Real Betis and Deportivo Alaves. Barcelona weren’t as formidable as usual, but Lionel Messi was as unstoppable as ever, claiming yet another La Liga Golden Boot through netting thirty-six times in league meetings.
