Tune in for some great football action this weekend as round 22 of La Liga is set to get underway.
We will take a close look at several encounters that bear great potential when it comes to placing wagers. Spanish gambling news reports that matchday 22 will commence on Friday evening with Deportivo La Coruna hosting Eibar in a game that will bear a great deal of uncertainty which usually results in a draw.
• Atletico Madrid will clash with Real Madrid at home
• Real Sociedad will host Celta Vigo
• Villarreal favorite against Granada
The first match on Saturday will reward us with a spectacular encounter as Diego Simeone’s men will go up against Carlo Ancelotti’s superstars. The Madrid Derby should be a pretty fun game to watch and will definitely offer many great betting opportunities. Later in the day Villarreal will play against Granada at home, while real Sociedad will go head to head against Celta Vigo.
Deportivo La Coruna vs Eibar and Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid
La Coruna right now sit in 14th place with 21 points and looking at their current crop of players they could have done better at times, especially when they played at home. Over the last 5 games they have lost on only 1 occasion, while the rest of the times the games ended in 2 draws and 2 wins. For their game against Eibar, Bet365 has given them favorable odds 2.10 (11/10) for a win, an event that is somewhat possible.
The visiting side are located in 8th spot with 27 points and maintain an away record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses, which is a little obscure. This means that the game could go in either way, which is why Bet365 has assigned odds of 3.20 (11/5) for the match to end in a draw. Due to the results, a win for Eibar stands at 3.80 (14/5).
Saturday will kick off with a marvelous encounter between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid. This game will certainly offer all the excitement and football action that fans crave for in a big derby. Diego Simeone’s side are 3rd in the league and have achieved to collect 47 points in the process. While playing at home they have notched a remarkable 9 wins and suffered only 1 draw and 1 loss. However, despite this online sportbooks in Spain still don’t favor them to win.
Los Blancos are attempting to win their first league title since 2012 and are looking great at the moment to achieve that objective. Whenever they have played away from the Bernabeu, Real Madrid have sealed a massive 9 wins, and lost only on 2 occasions. Bet365 believes that the 10-time European champions will have the capacity to overcome their opponents, which is why their odds stand at 2.40 (7/5). Atletico on the other hand have been dealt lesser chances 3.00 (2/1), while a draw between the two heavyweights has been set at 3.30 (23/10).
Villarreal vs Granada and Real Sociedad vs Celta Vigo
Villarreal currently sit in 6th place and they are desperately trying to advance their position on the table, as they want to qualify for the biggest European competition next season after a long absence. At home they have 7 games, while the rest ended in 3 losses, and for this reason Bet365 has given them the favorite status 1.30 (3/10) while a draw has been set at 5.25 (17/4), an event that does not look very likely.
Granada on the other hand are struggling in the relegation zone with only 18 points so far. Over the course of the last 5 games they have tied and lost on 2 occasions while managing to win only once. Bet365 has therefore given them highly unlikely chances to win 11.00 (10/1) the game. This encounter should be an easy one for Villarreal.
Real Sociedad will host Celta Vigo in the last game of Saturday. The hosts find themselves in 13th place with 22 points and a home record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. Many mobile betting operators believe that they could have done better but they just couldn’t keep their composure at times this in front of their home crowd this season.
Celta Vigo have managed to achieve a slightly better standing on the table than their upcoming opponents. They sit in 10th position with 24 points, however their record away from home is quite unimpressive (2 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses). It makes sense that Bet365 decided to give them less favorable odds 3.00 (2/1), while assigning more convincing chances to Real Sociedad 2.50 (3/2). A draw has been set at 3.20 (11/5), an event that may also happen considering the results.
