La Liga’s round 25 set to showcase thrilling matchups that are sure to please many betting enthusiasts.

Don’t miss out on all the spectacular action this weekend in the Spanish top flight. According to Spanish gambling news Granada will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Barcelona suffered a 1-0 loss to Malaga at home last weekend and hopefully be able to clinch a win themselves. Later on Saturday Rayo Vallecano will square off against Levante at home.

Barcelona favorites against Granada despite recent home defeat
Rayo Vallecano vs Levante looking to be a solid match
Almeria will square off against Deportivo La Coruna

In the evening on Saturday, Deportivo La Coruna will travel to Almeria where they will aim to defeat their opponents however that task may prove challenging judging by their current records. That same night Malaga will go head to head with Getafe in a game that should provide plenty of betting opportunities for punters.

Granada vs Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano vs Levante

Granada currently find themselves in the relegation zone as they only have accumulated 19 points so far. Over the course of the last 5 games they notched only 1 win, while the rest of the matches ended in 2 draws and 2 wins, so it makes sense that Bet365 does not believe that they have any hopes of winning 17.00 (16/1) against Barcelona. The hosts will be looking to capitalize on the fact that the Catalans are vulnerable following their recent home defeat to Malaga, however that seems to be a stretch given their superiority.

Luis Enrique’s men are second on the table and have recorded 56 points in total. Up until last weekend they enjoyed a pretty great run which saw them achieve a winning streak of 11 games. In the Champions League they managed to put 2 goals past Manchester City so now they will be pumped up to record another great win domestically. Bet365 has set their odds at 1.17 (1/6) earmarking them as obvious favorites.

Rayo Vallecano are in 14th spot with 26 points overall and they have recorded a very poor record while playing on home turf (3 wins, 1 draw and a staggering 7 losses). They can’t seem to find their strength to put on a good show in front of their home support, however mobile betting providers still believe that they can pull off a win 1.67 (2/3) against Levante at home.

The visiting team have been branded as outsider for this clash 5.50 (9/2), as they lie in 17th position with only 22 points. They managed to win on two occasions over the last 5 games, however the rest of the encounters ended in 3 losses, so Bet365 has decided to give them unfavorable chances. A draw between the two may be the best option considering their individual results, which stands at 3.75 (11/4).

Almeria vs Deportivo La Coruna and Malaga vs Getafe

Almeria occupy 16th position on the table and have a total of 23 points from 24 games so far. Their home record is the worst in the league out of all the 20 clubs as they were able to record only a single win, while the rest of the encounters ended in 4 draws and a staggering 6 losses. They have also let in 17 goals while only managing to score 9 to the opposition’s net, however despite the bad results Bet365 gave them preferential chances 2.25 (5/4) against La Coruna.

The visiting team are located one position ahead of Almeria sitting in 15th spot and claiming 24 points overall. Over the course of the last 5 games they notched 2 losses, 1 draw and 2 wins, which is why their odds 3.40 (12/5) are not that favorable against Almeria. A draw for the game is also likely so Bet365 has decided to set it at 3.20 (11/5).

Malaga will be tested against Getafe on Saturday night where the former side will be looking to beat their opponents in front of home support. The Andalusians used to be a Champions League participant several seasons ago, however now they don’t seem to be able to enter the top 4 spots to qualify for the elite competition. At home they have a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, but many believe that they could have done much better.

Getafe lie in 13th place with 26 points overall and their form is quite uncertain (2 wins and 3 losses in the last 5 encounters). On the road they have sealed 2 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses, which has propelled online sportsbooks in Spain to give them unfavorable odds 4.50 (7/2). A draw between them stands at 3.50 (5/2), an event that should also be considered, however Malaga will probably win 1.83 (5/6) the encounter.
