La Liga Soccer Betting Prediction (3rd matchday)
LaLiga betting tips – On the third day of the Spanish La Liga, all 20 teams will be in action for the first time. After FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and FC Sevilla received a two-week longer break due to their appearances in the European Cup finals, as did FC Elche, which was called for longer in the promotion games.
Real Madrid and Barcelona with difficult tasks
Because Real Madrid only joined a week late and then did not get beyond a goalless draw at Real Sociedad San Sebastian, the table currently shows an unusual picture. The only two teams to have started with two wins are Granada CF and Betis Sevilla. Both of them now have difficult tasks in front of their chests with duels against the big clubs from Madrid. We will go into more detail on this and the premiere of FC Barcelona under the new coach Ronald Koeman below.
Betis Sevilla vs Real Madrid Soccer Betting Prediction
Date: Saturday, 09/26/2020
With a last-minute win at Deportivo Alaves (1-0) and a sovereign win against Real Valladolid (2-0), Betis Sevilla got off to a perfect start and immediately made it clear that they are aiming higher after the previous season, which was disappointing in 15th place to have. If possible, the return to Europe should succeed, to which Claudio Bravo, Victor Ruiz, and Martin Montoya three experienced newcomers should also make their contribution. Basically, with players like Nabil Fekir, William Carvalho, or Emerson, there is certainly enough potential to get involved in the upper half of the table. If it is possible to maintain the current flow, an intervention in the race for the Europa League is also conceivable.
Of course, Real Madrid wouldn’t be satisfied with that. Los Blancos, who passed FC Barcelona with a strong final spurt in June and July and secured the championship, are aiming to defend their title on the one hand, but also to do better in the Champions League, in the round of 16 in August, on the other against Manchester City was over. Apart from returnees Martin Ödegaard, a largely unchanged squad should be directed, from which high-class reservists like James or Gareth Bale have left. Of course, the top performers around Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Karim Benzema will not be any younger, so it remains to be seen whether the title can be defended without top-class newcomers.
Real Madrid had a hard time in San Sebastian last week and in Sevilla, we can expect the next tricky task for the Zidane. Against self-confident and defensively stable Andalusians in the first games, we don’t believe in a three for the Madrilenians.
Betting Prediction: Double chance 1X
Atletico Madrid vs Granada CF Soccer Betting Predictions
Date: Sunday, 27.09.2020
At Atletico Madrid, too, little has changed on the transfer market. Apart from Alvaro Morata, unlike in previous years, there was no prominent departure, but except Yannick Carrasco, who has already been loaned and has now been completely brought back, well-known reinforcements have so far been negative. After the comparatively big upheaval in summer 2019, coach Diego Simeone’s team now has the opportunity to grow closer together. The potential to get back to the very highest level seems to exist with a view to actors like Thomas Lemar or Joao Felix who have not yet really got off the ground. And possibly another prominent draft horse will be added with Luis Suarez.
The FC Granada surprised last season positively as a climber with seventh place. It is of course clear to those responsible around coach Diego Martinez that it will not be easy to confirm this performance, but optimism is still the order of the day because it has been possible to keep the successful team together and also to strengthen it selectively. The start of the new season with victories against Athletic Bilbao (2: 0) and Deportivo Alaves (2: 1) is encouraging, although it remains to be seen how the additional international burden can be dealt with.
With an opponent like Atletico Madrid that is not only better cast but also ripped off, we expect the first setback for Granada. As it is almost a tradition at Atletico, it should be a rather tight affair.
Betting Prediction: Atletico Madrid wins
FC Barcelona vs FC Villarreal Soccer Betting Prediction
Date: Sunday, 27.09.2020
Since the 2: 8 debacle in the Champions League against FC Bayern Munich in mid-August, a lot has happened at FC Barcelona. With Ronald Koeman, a new coach is at the helm who can continue to count on Lionel Messi, although it looked like the Argentine superstar had jumped. With Miralem Pjanic, Trincao, and Matheus Fernandes, some new ones should also provide a breath of fresh air, whereas old braids were or will be cut off with Arturo Vidal, Iva Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, and probably also Luis Suarez. After only winning two friendly matches, Barca is of course hoping for a good start, which would also be extremely important given the current, once again highly turbulent environment.
Meanwhile, Villarreal FC is a traditionally strong opponent who has made a name for itself on the transfer market with Dani Parejo, Francis Coquelin, and Takefusa Kubo, among others. Under the new coach Unai Emery, the yellow submarine got off to a good start with four out of six possible points, which could at least be expected from home games against SD Huesca (1: 1) and SD Eibar (2: 1). Not all of the cogs are meshing yet, but that should be necessary for Barcelona to remain unbeaten.
It will be interesting to see how FC Barcelona will find the new season. In the domestic league, however, the individual class of Messi and Co. should still be enough for most opponents. We also believe that the Catalans will start with a home three.
Betting Prediction: win FC Barcelona
