Athletic Bilbao vs Barcelona predictions

Athletic Bilbao

Draw

Barcelona

18.35%

24.38%

57.27%

The La Liga season opener sees champions Barcelona visit Athletic Bilbao. The San Mamés Stadium is often a difficult place to be a visiting team, and the hosts will need to make the most of their home field advantage to take anything form this game. Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie De Jong should make their debuts and strengthen what was already a formidable Barca team who will need to cope without the brilliance of Lionel Messi in this fixture.

Valencia vs. Real Sociedad predictions

Real Sociedad

57.85%

18.02%

An exciting young Sociedad side begin their season with a trip to one of the league’s established powerhouses. Alexander Isak and Martin Odegaard have been added to Oyrzabal and Januzaj in the attacking positions, making Sociedad one of the teams to watch at the start of the season. They will have their work cut out overcoming a strong Valencia team who are -0.75 on the Asian handicap for this fixture.

Villarreal vs. Granada predictions

Villarreal

Granada 

61.06%

23.79%

15.15%

Villarreal underwhelmed last season finishing in a disappointing 14th place. The betting market expects them to perform better this time, with the Yellow Submarine strongly favoured to beat newly-promoted Granada. Over 2.5 goals to be scored in the game is available at 1.869* and could offer value considering the likelihood of a tough start to La Liga life for the visitors.

Celta Vigo vs. Real Madrid predictions

Celta Vigo

Draw

Real Madrid

20.73%

21.98%

57.29%

Two sides who will be disappointed with their performances last season meet in this fixture. Real have strengthened significantly this summer after a very poor 18/19 campaign, backed up by underwhelming expected goals figures. Eden Hazard’s highly anticipated La Liga debut will be much talked about but Vigo’s Iago Aspas is perhaps the most influential player on the pitch. If Aspas is fit and on form, Celta Vigo to score more than one goal is an interesting option at 1.617*.

Leganes vs. Osasuna predictions

Leganes 

Draw

Osasuna

48.05%

29.06%

22.90%

Newly promoted Osasuna return to La Liga with an away game against a Leganes team that performed admirably last season. Both sides have strengthened well this summer with Osasuna’s Ezequiel Avila the player to watch after a hugely impressive spell at SD Huesca. The Argentinian hit double figures for goals despite playing for a struggling side, and could be the spark Osasuna need to cause surprises in matches like this one.

Mallorca vs. Eibar predictions

Mallorca

Draw

Eibar 

31.78%

30.34%

36.88%

Out of the newly promoted sides, Mallorca are considered to be the weakest and are favourites to be relegated. Eibar have lost Joan Jordan and Ruben Pena but with some experienced additions to the squad that performed solidly last season and will fancy their chances of securing a result here.

Alaves vs. Levante predictions

Alaves 

Draw

Levante 

43.50%

26.68%

29.82%

Alaves are favoured to take a positive result from the visit of Levante. Levante were the fourth highest scoring team last season, outscoring the likes of Atletico Madrid and Valencia, whilst Alaves conceded at a rate of 1.3 goals per game. Levante to score over 0.5 goals is available at 1.478* which could be of interest for bettors expecting the away side to continue their strong attacking record from last season.

Espanyol vs. Sevilla predictions

Espanyol 

Draw

Sevilla

32.339%

27.17%

40.50%

Two of last season’s top seven teams meet in a high quality matchup. The percentages have the sides closely matched, helped by Espanyol playing at home, with Sevilla narrowly-favoured on the Asian Handicap set at -0.25.

Atletico Madrid vs. Getafe predictions

Atletico Madrid 

Draw

Getafe 

67.27%

11.64%

21.09%

There is a lot of interest in the new look Atletico team, with record signing Joao Felix set to feature prominently. Getafe have performed admirably over the last two seasons but will have their work cut out to deal with an Atleti side that has been excellent in preseason. Atletico are strongly fancied to win at home, and for good reason. They are available at 2.090* on the -1.25 handicap.

Real Betis vs. Real Valldolid predictions

Real Betis

Draw

Real Vallodolid

67.27%

11.64%

21.09%

New Betis signing Nabil Fekir is the player to watch in this match, as he tries to reignite a Betis attack that only scored 44 La Liga goals last season. Real Vallodolid should provide favourable opposition. They are expected to be one of the weakest in La Liga, having narrowly avoided relegation last season. Over 2.25 goals can be backed at 1.909* and could offer value if Fekir starts well.
