Can Barca still win La Liga? It is an important question that we must ask. Real Madrid are in a great advantage, but is it enough for the Royal Club to finally win the championship again after 2012? Let’s see what La Liga betting odds predict!
Online sportsbooks in Spain are in trouble. They keep asking the question: “can Barca still win La Liga?” Of course they won’t make similar mistakes to what they did to Leicester City last season, so the odds for Barcelona to win La Liga will not rise as high as 5001.00 (5000/1) unfortunately! But they are getting further away from being favourites due to the consistent and confident performances shown by Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid.
Can Barcelona still win La Liga?
According to the expectations by famous sports betting sites, such as Betway for example, Barca can still win the league. The odds for Barcelona to win league are (15/8) at the popular online bookmaker. Can Barca still win La Liga though? The odds for Real Madrid to win La Liga are only 1.50 (1/2) at Bet365 and they are leading 1 point ahead of Barcelona having played one match less.
The Royal Club becomes favourites – for now…
Los Merengues have been quite inconsistent in 2017. Their record number of unbeaten matches were destroyed earlier this year and they have lost more games in 2 months than ever before with Zidane. However, they are also capable of producing top quality comebacks, something they proved against Villarreal last weekend: losing to 2-0 but still winning the game 2-3 as a guest team and scoring all 3 goals in the last 30 minutes…Top class performances from a top class champion side.
The MSN can be the difference
However, that might still not be enough for Real to win the league. According to the rates by famous online sportsbooks, the most likely candidates to end up claiming the Pichichi prize are either Lionel Messi or Luis Suarez. Their odds to be La Liga top scorer are 1.74 (14/19) and 3.00 (2/1) respectively at NetBet. Cristiano Ronaldo only comes third while other BBC members are basically impossible to win Pichichi, which could mean a lot in the race for winning the championship.
The odds for Cristiano Ronaldo to be top scorer in La Liga are 4.20 (16/5) at Betfair, while those for Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are 251.00 (250/1) and 301.00 (300/1) respectively are 188BET. We can see even from the odds by online sportsbooks that Barcelona’s attacking third performs way better than that of Real Madrid. However, only time will tell if that will be enough for Barcelona to win La Liga.
Can Barca win any other trophy this season?
Well, technically they are still in the race for the Champions League, and if you truly believe in their success, now is the time to bet on Barcelona to win Champions League: their odds to do so are 51.00 (50/1) at 32Red. No surprise here, PSG trashed them by 4-0 in the first leg and they are likely to exit the tournament as soon as the next matchday. However, they reached the Copa del Rey final where they will come as clear favourites against Deportivo Alavés according to all online betting news in Spain, so even if Barca lost La Liga to Real Madrid this season, they can still win an important trophy.
