• Atletico Madrid faces an easy test against Eibar
Celta Vigo and Cordoba will go head to head in match that should produce some good chance for punters to make extra money. And we will also take a look at Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad which will undoubtedly finish with a win for the former but nevertheless can be used a good betting game.
Eibar vs Atletico Madrid and Granada vs Elche
Atletico Madrid will play against Eibar away on Saturday evening and looking at Diego Simeone’s records while playing away with his team (5 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses), this should be a rather one sided game. They currently stand in 3rd place with 44 points behind Real Madrid and Barcelona and their current biggest threat is Valencia who is in 4th position.
Eibar have managed to seal 8th place in the league and they now have an overall of 27 points. their home record stands at 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, which is quite ambivalent however considering the squad at their disposal they have done alright by some standards.Bet365
Granada will have a great chance to utilize home field advantage against Elche and thanks to this important detail online sportbooks in Spain have singled out the former side as the favorite to win 1.95 (10/11). However, the downside to placing a bet on them is that they are currently last in the league and have not managed to make any significant difference in their recent matches.
Elche is not enjoying a much better time either as they sit on the verge of entering the relegation zone. Should they not be successful in their next match they could join their opponents in the battle to crawl out of the last three endangered positions in the league. While playing away from home they have notched 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses which is why Bet365 has branded them as outsiders 4.20 (16/5).
Celta Vigo vs Cordoba and Real Madrid vs Real Sociedad
Celta Vigo will play Cordoba and thanks to the former’s slightly better standing and decent home results they have been handed the upper leg for the upcoming game. At home Celta has recorded 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, stats that are not very convincing and should have been better considering they are familiar with their own field better than the opposition. Nevertheless, their odds stand at 1.44 (4/9), while a draw has been set at a high 4.00 (3/1).
Cordoba are facing an uphill battle as they sit in 15th spot which means that they are 3 below Celta Vigo on the table. Their away record is pretty bad (2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses) and that is why Bet365 does not believe that they can win this encounter. Their odds have been set at an unlikely 8.00 (7/1), but a draw could also happen judging by the performances over the last few games.
Real Madrid, who are the current league leaders, will play against Real Sociedad on Saturday afternoon. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are primed to lift their first La Liga trophy since 2012 thanks to their star-studded squad which bears a big name in every single position. As per Spanish gambling laws, Bet365 has given them strong odds of 1.18 (2/11), however the only bad news for Los Blancos is that they will be against star man Ronaldo for this clash due to suspension.
Real Sociedad on the other hand sit in 11th place with 22 points from 20 games so far. They are obviously the complete outsiders 15.00 (14/1) for this game mainly due to the great difference between them and Real Madrid. A draw 6.50 (11/2) is most that they can hope for however that event is also not likely.
