La Liga Betting Predictions and Odds (Matchday 34): do the Catalans stumble again?
Can Real distance itself from the Catalans?
In Spain, there has been no day without football at the highest level since the restart. After the long forced break, things start to happen and on Friday evening the whistle for the 34th matchday with the duel between Atletico Madrid and Mallorca starts.
Defending champion Barcelona conceded the next setback in the English week. Due to another loss of points by Messi & Co, the Setien eleven are four points behind the royal team from Madrid. The next tough test awaits this weekend with the form-fitting yellow submarine from Villarreal.
Should Blaugrana lose another point at the Estadio de la Ceramica, one could definitely speak of a preliminary decision. There are probably already in the fight for the league: slowly but surely the lights go out at Mallorca, Leganes and Espanyol Barcelona.
A look at the current La Liga table shows that a performance explosion would probably be necessary in the season finish to avoid falling into the second division.
The fight for the Europa League starting places promises high tension, as four teams are separated by only four counters and fight for the last ticket. Especially at Valencia and Real Sociedad de San Sebastian, the shape curve doesn’t bode well.
Atletico Madrid vs Mallorca Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 3rd, 2020
Meanwhile, the Rojiblancos are again the first pursuers of the top duo and are on course for the Champions League. Since the re-start, the Simeone-Elf has been in great shape. In the six previous games, Atletico Madrid collected 14 out of 18 possible points and defied Barcelona a 2-2 draw during the week.
The clear favorite role is obvious given the 10-5-1 home record, especially since the island kickers act inferior abroad (1-2-13 record). Mallorca has confidence after the 5-1 win against Celta Vigo, but at Atico Madrid the fruits are too high. On the 34th LaLiga matchday, not only bets on home win are recommended, but also the prediction that the favorite will make everything clear early and the HT / FT tip 1/1 will be successful.
Betting Prediction: HT / FT 1/1
Celta Vigo vs Betis Sevilla Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 4th, 2020
Ouch! After quite strong performances, the Galicians in Mallorca slipped into a violent 1: 5 debacle and thus missed the early decision in the relegation battle. The sky blue are not yet completely free from all relegation worries in view of five points ahead of Mallorca. With a home win against Betis Sevilla, Celta Vigo would catch up with the Andalusians.
The best bookmakers see the home side as clear favorites despite the fierce defeat in Mallorca. At Betis Sevilla there is a lot going on at the moment and the change of coach has also not been successful. The balance between the defensive and the offensive does not exist and outstanding actors like Nabil Fekir do not live up to their advance laurels. In addition, the Frenchman now has to watch blocked for a traffic light card.
All in all, Celta Vigo has been significantly stronger since the re-start, so betting on the home win with a clear conscience is recommended on the 34th La Liga matchday.
Betting Prediction: victory Celta Vigo
Valladolid vs. Alaves Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 4th, 2020
The winner in this duel between two table neighbors can finally get rid of all relegation worries. But even in the event of a defeat, the initial situation should still be described as quite comfortable. In the betting base odds comparison, the home side are considered a slight favorite, but given ten draws in 16 home games, a division of points is also conceivable.
However, instead of trying the three-way market, the odds for a low-scoring game on the 34th La Liga matchday appear extremely promising. An average of 1.81 goals were scored in Valladolid home games, Alaves is anything but dangerous with only twelve away goals in 16 games (2-3-11 record). A less than 1.5 would not be a surprise in this game.
Betting Prediction: Under 1.5
Granada vs Valencia Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 4th, 2020
Before the start of the season, it was hardly conceivable that promoters and Champions League participants are neighbors after 33 game days. The hosts from Andalusia are playing an outstanding season and can actually still dream of Europe five rounds before the end. So while Granada starts with a wide chest, the bats from Valencia are in free fall.
Valencia only collected four points in the six games since the restart and remained four times without scoring. Most recently, Albert Celades had to vacate his chair, but the coaching effect failed to materialize in the 0-2 home loss to Athletic Bilbao. Granada, on the other hand, won 2-0 in the Basque Country at Deportivo Alaves.
Granada has not been outstanding since the re-start, but balanced betting odds on the 34th La Liga matchday are a bit surprising in this game. Especially if you take a closer look at the away games from Valencia. For eight games (0-2-6 record) Valencia has not won abroad and has a goal difference of 3:18. On the 34th LaLiga matchday, betting tips on Granada are fraught with value.
Betting Prediction: Granada wins
Atletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 5th, 2020
In the postponed Copa del Rey final, Bilbao would fight neighboring Real Sociedad for the title and the EL ticket, but the two teams do not want to contest the final without fans. Therefore, the table seventh will qualify for Europe. There too, the two traditional Basque clubs are fighting for the EL ticket.
After the recent strong performances (eleven points in six games), Bilbao is two points behind RSSS. The San Mamés is a true fortress, Bilbao only conceded nine goals in 16 games. A tough nut is waiting for the royal from Madrid.
Especially since the Zidane-Elf does not know how to convince with playful gala performances. However, “Zizou” inoculated the royal gene with the winning gene and fallers are de facto excluded. Since the restart, Real Madrid have won six games in six games, conceding just two goals. Due to the strong defensive lines of both teams, the Under 2.5 on the 34th La Liga matchday is an option at interesting betting odds.
Betting Prediction: Under 2.5
Espanyol Barcelona vs Leganes Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 5th, 2020
Espanyol Barcelona has been a member of LaLiga for 26 years, but the Catalans will have to bake small rolls in the coming season. Five laps before the end, ten points behind the saving bank is theoretically catchable, but not realistic. On Thursday evening, Real Sociedad’s fourth defeat in a row despite the lead – the mini-hope should also have been finally extinguished. The hope of recovery after the restart (four points from two games, no goal) did not last long.
Leganes will also have to contest the league two league, before the relegation thriller, the team from Madrid has one more point on the credit side. The performances since the restart (four defeats, two draws) are absolutely disappointing.
Given a 1-6-9 away record and only ten goals abroad, chances are good that after the 34th LaLiga matchday the Red Lantern will be found at Leganes. We see Espanyol Barcelona in the advantage, the balanced betting odds seem lucrative for the bet on the home win.
Betting Prediction: Espanyol Barcelona wins
Osasuna vs Getafe Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 5th, 2020
Not only does Granada stand out as a newcomer, but this also applies to the team from Pamplona. With 44 points already, the LaLiga returnee is in eleventh place and is completely balanced with an 11-11-11 record. Most recently, the promoted team prevailed three times against teams from the lower half of the table and is bursting with confidence.
This can also be found in abundance at Getafe. Anyone who thought the season last year was a surprise was disabused. The team came back after a weak start to the season, is now ranked sixth and is now back on the Europa League course.
The outstanding Getafe defensive (30 goals, third best defensive in LaLiga) finally decides to secure the betting odds for the Getafe victory on the 34th LaLiga matchday.
Betting Prediction: Getafe wins
Villarreal vs Barcelona Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 5th 2020
Five wins, one draw – the yellow Villarreal submarine can undoubtedly be called the team of the hour and is back in the battle for the UEFA Champoins League. For the Calleja-Elf the forced break came after three defeats en suite at the right time.
The offensive around Paco Alcacer and Gerard Moreno presents itself as dangerous, the defensive is solidified and with oldie Bruno Soriano (after a three-year injury break!) The lead wolf is back in the middle of the team, although it is currently only a short assignment. It is quite possible that Villarreal will turn out to be the coffin nail for the title hopes of the Blaugrana.
The 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid was the third division of points in the recent four league games for the Catalans. Quique Setien is already counted again and a new coaching change would not be a surprise in the coming weeks and months.
Barcelona has to accept the accusation that the team is now above the zenith. The top performers are all beyond the 30th. Lionel Messi scored a 700th career goal via Panenka penalty, but Saul Niguez twice got the upper hand against ter Stegen from the penalty points and caused another slip.
The offensive has the quality of scoring goals, but Barcelona is currently defensive to error-prone. Due to the strong Villarreal offensive (Samu Chukwueze in particular will be dangerous due to his speed), a game with many goals can be expected. On the 34th LaLiga matchday, bets on over 3.5 between Villarreal and Barcelona are a good option.
Betting Prediction: Over 3.5
Levante vs Real Sociedad Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 6th, 2020
The local rival of Valencia and Villarreal should not lack self-confidence these days. Since the restart, the underdog has only suffered a narrow defeat against Atletico Madrid and has scored in the remaining five games. The Paco Lopez team is in the no man’s land of the table and can play freely in the finish.
Football is a fast-moving business and within a few days the Basques from San Sebastian threatened to lose an outstanding season. Before the forced break, RSSS was the big surprise and was allowed to flirt with the return to the premier class. However, the young, talented team has been disappointing since the restart.
In the first five games there was only one point win in the home game against Osasuna. After four defeats in a row, Real Sociedad showed morale and prevailed 2-1 in the home game against Espanyol despite deficit. A relief that brought the Basques back to the Eurpoa League starting place. This has to be defended, with Levante surprisingly high odds are offered. On the 34th La Liga matchday, betting on the DNB market on RSSS is a lucrative option.
Betting Prediction: DNB 2
Seville vs Eibar Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: July 6th, 2020
The Andalusians have become the Remis King in the past few days. After four points in a row, Sevilla won 3: 0 away from relegation candidate Leganes and thus defended the three points advantage over Villarreal in the fight for the Champions League. A hot finish awaits Sevilla and three points are required in the home game against Eibar.
Eight points from four games provided a comfortable cushion in the struggle for remaining in the league. However, this winning streak was stopped during the week when Eibar was beaten 0-2 in the home game against Osasuna. However, a six-point lead is a comfortable cushion in the fight for remaining in the league.
Given the weak 2-6-8 away record, points in Sevilla are not to be scheduled on Monday. The Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan is a fortress and therefore on the 34th La Liga matchday the tip on a handicap victory for the home side appears to be the best choice.
Betting Tips: Sevilla -1.5
