La Liga Tips
For 93 seasons the Spanish La Liga has been entertaining football fans around the world, whether it would be the fight for the La Liga title, the battle for European football or the struggle against relegation to the second tier of Spanish football. In recent years, the battle between Real Madrid and Barcelona has been taken to new levels by the rise of Atletico Madrid. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo often turned the tables in the favour of their sides but now they are gone, teams such as Real Betis and Real Sociedad rarely get any better opportunities to win a trophy in the Spanish top flight.
La Liga Betting Tips: La Liga Acca – Game Week 11
Real Madrid lead the way at the top of La Liga, with Carlo Ancelotti’s men still unbeaten after their opening 10 league games.
Their major rivals Barcelona are now three points off the pace, with both collecting 3-0 wins in midweek, while Real Sociedad have moved up to third.
Both the top two have tricky looking home games this weekend, as they prepare to face Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao respectively.
Rayo Vallecano vs Cadiz (Saturday, 13:00)
Rayo Vallecano have moved into the top half of the table, after collecting five points from their last four La Liga fixtures.
Andoni Iraola’s men will now face second from bottom Cadiz, who themselves are showing some good signs having gone on a five-game unbeaten run.
The visitor’s last four matches have finished in a share of the spoils, including a 1-1 draw in their last away game at Girona in October 15.
Vallecano have also drawn their last two games, at home to Getafe and then at Atletico Madrid, and have struggled for goals – scoring just twice in their last three fixtures.
Both games between the sides last term finished as home wins, but each of their previous four meetings had all been draws.
Tip: Draw @ 49/20
Valencia vs Mallorca (Saturday, 17:30)
Under Gennaro Gattuso, Valencia look to be moving in the right direction after a decade of struggles for Los Che, who are currently sat in the top eight.
The former Napoli coach has seen his men go five games without defeat (2 wins and 3 draws) and have lost just one of their games at the Mestalla – a 0-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
This Saturday they face a Mallorca team who have failed to win any of their last four and are now just one point outside the relegation zone.
The Pirates have also struggled for goals in recent weeks, finding the back of the net just once in those last four matches and are still missing injured striker Tinotenda Kadewere.
In contrast, Valencia have scored in each of their last seven matches and experienced frontman Edinson Cavani has scored three times in the last two games.
Tip: Half Time / Full Time - Valencia / Valencia @ 33/20
Villarreal vs Almeria (Saturday, 17:30)
Just four places separate these two teams, but Villarreal hold a five point advantage over Almeria going into Saturday’s clash.
The Yellow Submarines have an impressive home record in 2022, having lost just one of their 13 home league games in this calendar year.
Unai Emery’s side has been built around a solid foundation at the back, with Villarreal conceding just six goals in their opening 10 games – the joint second-best record in the league.
In contrast, Almeria have scored just six times and have lost all of their last four league games on the road.
The last time these two sides met was in a Copa Del Rey match in December 2018, when Villarreal ran out 8-0 winners.
Tip: Villarreal to win to nil @ 21/20
Barcelona vs Athletic Bilbao (Sunday, 20:00)
You have to go all the way back to 2001 for the last time Athletic Bilbao won at the Nou Camp and that wait looks set to be extended this weekend.
Barcelona are looking to stay in touch with Real Madrid at the top of the table, following their 3-1 defeat at the Bernabeu and a comfortable win over Villarreal last week shows they are back on track.
Bilbao have performed well on the road this season, with two wins and two draws in their four away league games, although they were all against teams in the bottom half of the table.
The hosts have La Liga’s leading scorer in their ranks, with Robert Lewandowski having 11 to his name so far this term and having scored four times in their last three games.
This fixture ended in a 4-0 win for Barca last season and the same result can be backed at 18/1.
Tip: Barcelona to win and Lewandowski to score @ 27/25
