Who are the biggest football talents at Sevilla? Which Bilbao players should we keep an eye on? Who are the best young talents at Malaga and Celta Vigo? Let’s find out together!
In the first three episodes, we have already introduced more than half of the teams participating in La Liga this season. We highlighted their best young players who are expected to collect a few extra points for their teams this season. In this part, we will examine 4 more teams: Who are the biggest football talents in Malaga, Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao, and what do online betting news in Spain think about the future of these players?
Malaga’s biggest football talents
Málaga have been living its golden age while Manuel Pellegrini was at the helm of the Andalusian club. Now that they are over the Chilean manager, Malaga are still one of the best teams in La Liga, but they are not a real challenge in the Champions League any longer. They hope to become that once again if their young talents will develop enough – maybe the new Isco is already in the squad.
However, Isco has been gone for a while now and his replacement as a new Malaga youngster is still to be discovered. However, they are trying hard to find his successor: Real Madrid’s central defender David Llorente is on loan at Malaga. He spent last season at Rayo Vallecano where he was a key player. He hopes to improve even more as a player. Of course his main ambition is to return to his team, to Los Blancos, and uses Málaga to achieve what he wants.
Malaga, however, did not only strengthen its squad from Real Madrid: they also captured Sandro Ramirez of Barcelona on a free transfer. He signed a 3-year contract with the Andalusian side and is expected to show he learnt at the Blaugrana. If you want to bet on Sandro to score against Villarreal next weekend, or becoming La Liga top scorer, make sure not to choose any of the worst casinos online: Check out our list of the best online sportsbooks in Spain and bet at one of those places for your own sake!
Most talented football players at Sevilla
Another Andalusian side, FC Sevilla, that have been performing quite well in La Liga apart from being the kings of Europa League: they have won the second most prestigious European club tournaments 3 times in a row. And they are the biggest favourites this season as well, despite the fact that they are in the Champions League group stage…
Their biggest football talent is without a doubt the 22-year-old striker Luciano Vietto. He is on loan from Atlético de Madrid, who are famous of choosing the most talented strikers in the world – let’s take a moment to remember the list that consists of Fernando Torres, Kun Agüero, Diego Forlán, Antoinne Griezmann, etc… And Vietto might as well become the next one on that list if he proves his skills at Sevilla!
Keeping an eye on another Argentine player of Sevilla will be worth it if we are looking for the best young talents in La Liga: 22-year-old Joaquín Correa might also shine this season at the Andalusian team. The Argentine attacking midfielder spent last season in the Serie A at Sampdoria where he played well enough to be discovered by the scouts of the Sevillistas.
Celta Vigo’s best youngsters
Celta Vigo has been performing quite well in recent years. Their successful seasons were “blamed” on the terrific performances shown by their own discovery, Nolito, who mostly plays as a left winger but can also play striker. The Spaniard were linked to Barcelona on several occasions, but eventually ended up in Pep’s team which was quite a surprise.
Now it’s up to the biggest football talents in Vigo to replace the Celta star Nolito, but who can be up to such a challenge? The 20-year-old Belgian striker, Theo Bongonda is definitely one of the best candidates for that. He was transferred from Zulte-Waregem in hopes of becoming another one of the golden generation of Belgian football. This season, we will surely learn more about his actual talents, which will hopefully be shown at Celta Vigo.
We also need to mention two more youngsters when we are discussing the biggest football talents at Celta Vigo: 21-year-old central defender David Costas and also-21-year-old Danish midfielder Pione Sisto are expected to be frequent starting players this season. The former one is a home-grown player while the Dane was signed from FC Midtjylland.
Athletic Bilbao are famous of their Basque youth system
Athletic Bilbao, apart from Barcelona and Real Madrid, are the only club that have never relegated from La Liga. That incredible history becomes even more amazing when you learn a bit more about how the club works – they are only willing to buy players who were born in the Basque country or have Basque origins. But truth be told, they mostly rely on home-grown players.
The vast majority of Bilbao’s squad consists of home-grown players and hence they are a pretty young team, but they don’t have outstandingly young players this season. Actually their youngest player is already 21-year-old, his name is Yerai Alvarez, who was, of course, brought up from Athletic Bilbao B.
When we talk about the biggest young names at Bilbao, we must mention the 22-year-old central defender Aymeric Laporte. The French playerhas over 100 La Liga games in his legs despite his young age. However, there is someone even better in that sense: Iker Muniain, 23, has played more than 200 league games as he has been playing regularly for Bilbao since 2009.
The 22-year-old striker, Inaki Williams is another one of the young Bilbao players. He has been with the Rojiblancos for the third year now and has played 45 league games so far, scoring only 10 goals. The most enthusiastic Bilbao fans can bet on Williams becoming world class striker for this season. If you believe he can win the Pichichi, bet on top scorer of La Liga: the odds for Inaki Williams are 201 (200/1) at online sportsbooks like Coral Sportsbook, for example.
