Latest La Liga Betting After Matchday 30
Los Blancos now finally sit at the top of La Liga, and as they hold the advantage over Barcelona in the head-to-head, some bookmakers now have them as short as 8/13 to win their first La Liga title since 2017.
Last night’s 2-1 win over Sociedad was anything but routine. Madrid far from had things their own way in the Basque Country, but they did what they needed to do. And in the style of champions, they left with the required and priceless 3 points.
Next up in action is Barcelona, they host Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp on Tuesday. Messi and co are 1/3 to win this tricky looking fixture and keep the pressure on Madrid.
Then on Wednesday, it’s the turn of Madrid. Zidane’s team host Real Mallorca, in what on paper looks a far more favourable fixture.
This is reflected in the odds as well, with Madrid just 1/8 to complete the victory.
This match may well represent a chance for Zidane to rotate his squad for the hectic title run in. So it might be worth bearing that in mind if you’re considering having a bet on Madrid.
There’s no rest for the two giants of Spanish football after that. Barcelona are back in action away to Celta Vigo on the 27th June, with Madrid playing just a day later, away to Espanyol on the 28th.
With La Liga moving at breakneck speed to get the season finished by 19th July, it could be how the respective managers utilise their squads, that ultimately decides where the title ends up.
