Barcelona could not bounce back from defeat at Leganes and were held once again, this time by a stubborn Athletic Bilbao outfit, to a (1-1) draw at Camp Nou, stretching their winless run to three games. However, they are still top of the table in La Liga albeit on goal difference with their longstanding rivals Real Madrid. Valverde’s men are facing five extremely tough fixtures in both La Liga and Champions League on October. Results of these games will certainly affect Barcelona’s entire campaign for this season.
We analyze the available best Barcelona odds for October 2018, starting with the Spurs in UCL, followed by two La Liga clashes against Valencia and Sevilla. According to best online betting sites in Spain, Barcelona are favourites to win all the matches. Another two heavy clashes await Barca in the same month against Inter and Real Madrid, but the odds are still to be offered some time later.
Barca v Tottenham, Oct 03
Tottenham are coming back to their home ground after three weeks of away games, to try pick up their first points in Champions League this season. Their visitors Barca have had a comfortable (4-0) win against PSV in Group B opener, and if they capture the second victory at Wembley, the Spurs will be under serious threat to face early exit from Champions League.
Tottenham do not have much chance to win this one, as they miss a host of key players through injury including Dele Ali and Christian Eriksen, but Barcelona are also expected to struggle away from Camp Nou in the Champions League, as they have been slowing down lately. According to Bet365 Sportsbook a win for Barca is at 1.95, while it is 3.90 for either Tottenham to win or for a draw.
Valencia to Host Barca on Oct 07
According to online sportsbook news in Spain, Barcelona will be visiting Estadio de Mestalla for La Liga Matchday 08 against Valencia. Los Che are considered the weakest opponents of Barca in this month, especially after they captured their first victory against Real Sociedad in seven games in La Liga. Valencia are undoubtedly the underdogs with 4.50 odds to win the match or to finish with a draw. We expect the Catalans to win three points with best Barcelona odds standing at 1.60, unless they surprisingly fall short as they did in last three games.
Sevilla to Seek Revenge on Oct 20
Barcelona have gone from a clear advantage in the league to opening the door for their rivals. Sevilla sit on third place with only one point behind the top of the table. They have enjoyed four straight wins, with a stunning (3-0) win against Real Madrid one week ago. Sevilla will be looking to revenge after they lost both the Spanish Super Cup and Cop del Rey to Barcelona in summer. According to Bet365 Sportsbook, the odds are 7.50 for Sevilla to win at Camp Nou, a win for Barca stands at 1.36, and a draw is at 5.00.
