La Liga Weekend Predictions – Round 15

Welcome to the betting predictions for the 15th La Liga Round. This week will give us several amazing fixtures, including a fixture between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona on Sunday. The Catalans will have to travel to Madrid and win if they are to remain on the top of the table. Real Madrid are facing Alaves which should be an easy win for them and if Barcelona drop points, they will be going on the top of the league. Other fixtures will see Valencia host Villarreal while Sociedad get an opportunity to reach the TOP 4 if they defeat Eibar. Last but not least, we have to mention the game between Bilbao and Granada. It’s unexpected but this year it’s a fixture between 2 top sides. However, more about that below, in our weekly La Liga predictions.

The hosts had a lot of bad performances this season and they were in risk of reaching the relegation zone. However, things have been looking up in the last two weeks as they racked up two victories and they moved closer to the middle of the table. Meeting Real Madrid at this point just as they are looking better is unlucky for Alaves. However, last year, they won this fixture against Madrid and their fans will be hoping for the same.

Real Madrid had a very bad start to the season in all competitions. However, things are looking much better at the moment as Madrid are fighting for the 1st place in the league. As a matter of fact, Barcelona is ahead of them by just a better goal difference. Still, in recent seasons, this fixture when they travel to Alaves has been a tough one. Last year, they lost by a single goal while the season before that, they barely won 1:2.

Prediction

As things stand at the moment, Real Madrid are in a very favorable position to win this match. Alaves have been in a good form lately but Madrid should have enough individual quality to get all 3 points. For that reason, we are backing an Away Side Victory outcome.

Valencia fell to a last second defeat in the previous round against Betis. Other than that, they have been performing good lately. They managed to hold Chelsea to a draw in the Champions League in a match where they scored first and Parejo missed another penalty as well. However, now they have to host Villarreal, a top side that’s struggling a lot at the moment. Last year, they kicked them out of the Europa League and defeated them 3:0 in the same fixture. This time around, the “Yellow Submarine” has a much stronger squad and Valencia will have to bring their A game.

The visitors, on the other hand, have been on a bad run of results. They have won just 1 match in 5 rounds even though they play just 1 fixture every week. This year, Villarreal don’t have to worry about European football. However, the team is still struggling to find the right formula which will keep them winning. Nevertheless, even though they dropped a lot of points, Villarreal are just 5 points away from a TOP 6 position.

Prediction

This is a fixture where picking a winner is nearly impossible. Both sides need the points and they will go in the match with the hope of getting all 3. Valencia have a small home turf advantage but Villarreal are in a bad run and are desperate to win. That’s why we are backing a Both Teams to Score outcome.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona >> click here for live odds

Here we have the most interesting fixture of this La Liga round. The Catalans will travel to Madrid to face Atletico and try to get all 3 points which will keep them on top of the table. They looked solid in the Champions League against Dortmund even though they have several very important squad players out due to injury. In the last 2 seasons, this fixture finished with a draw which has been the case in many meetings between these sides. However, for the first time in years, Atletico are a bit shaky in the defense and Barcelona will certainly try to use that as an advantage.

The hosts, on the other hand, haven’t been performing on a top level in the league. However, even though they dropped a lot of points, Atletico are still in the TOP 4. A win over Barcelona could see them go top of the table if other results go in their favor. The fact that since Simeone has been their coach, Atletico have never beaten Barcelona in a league game doesn’t bode well for them. Still, there is a first time for everything and Sunday night might be the perfect chance to do that. The Catalans are not as strong as they were in recent years and Atletico can surely win if they keep mistakes to a minimum and use their chances.

Prediction

It’s always hard to predict a match of this caliber because very often small details decide the final outcome. Barcelona have been on a good run lately but they are playing much worse when they play away from home. A draw might be the most plausible result but Barcelona do have a small edge in this one. For that reason, we are backing a X2 Double Chance outcome.
