Ernesto Valverde’s side won 25 and drawn eight after 33 rounds in Primera Division. Only four relatively easy games except against Real Madrid are on the way, before 2017/18 La Liga brings its curtain down. Have a look at our La Liga predictions on whether Barca could finish undefeated, and how many goals they might end up scoring and conceding.
According to online sportsbook news in Spain Valverde has already broken two domestic records in his first season with Barca. He brought the team to a longest undefeated run from the start of a season to 33 rounds. He also extended Barca’s record of most consecutive league games without a loss to 41 games, surpassing Real Sociedad’s record of 38 from 1979-80. Thus, he still has another new record to break, which is finishing La Liga season with zero losses, and you can bet on that and more at 1xBet Sportsbook. We think such bet is worthy and here is why according to our La Liga predictions.
La Liga predictions on Barca’s new record
Although Barca enjoy one of their best seasons domestically, they will not be able to surpass Real Madrid in terms of most points a team can gain in one season. If Barca can win all their five games, they will finish with 98 points, which is 2 points less than Real Madrid’s best season of 100 points in 2011/12. However, they have a strong chance to finish undefeated in 2017/18 La Liga season.
Barcelona will play five more games in La Liga. Two out of five are against Levante and Deportivo La Coruna who sit in 17th and 18th spot respectively. Two other matches will be against mid-table teams including 6th placed Villarreal and 11th placed Real Sociedad. As such, the only team who might stop Barcelona from finishing undefeated are Real Madrid in May 6 El Clasico. You can place your prediction by betting yes or no at 1xBet Sportsbook with (1.87) odds.
Bet on total goals to be scored and conceded
Barcelona conceded 19 goals in La Liga so far, which is the lowest record in last six seasons. The only time Barcelona conceded same low number of goals before the end of the season in five games was in 2014/15 season. In the first half of this season, Barca conceded only two goals from the five opponents. If you expect the Blaugrana to repeat the same run, then you may add a betting to concede less than 24 goals with (1.83) odds at 1xBet Sportsbook.
You can also place a wager on total goals Barca could end up scoring this season. The odds are (1.83) for over 95 goals, and (1.97) for less than 95. Valverde’s men scored 83 so far, and they scored 16 against the five opponents in the first half of the season. They also enjoy an average of 2.5 goals per game, netting once every 35 minutes. All stats seem to be supporting a wager on Barca to surpass the 95 threshold. Do you thing Barca will continue their impressive domestic campaign, or they may stumble as they did against Roma?
