Rayo Vallecano vs Sevilla (Sunday, 1pm)

The hosts have scored only once in their last nine and a half hours of La Liga football and their collective drought might well continue here against a Sevilla side that have only gone behind on six occasions all season, a mightily impressive figure that is presently unsurpassed in the top-flight.

It is a sustained goal-shyness that has cost Andoni Iraola’s men dear as they tumble ever further from the top six reckoning into mid-table and worse yet it is anything but a recent phenomenon.

Across the season, Rayo have created ample chances but with a 5.4% conversion rate – by some distance, La Liga’s lowest – opposition keepers have too often been spared a difficult shift.

Sevilla meanwhile may have been immensely frustrated by a 0-0 stalemate at Alaves last Friday but the draw still extends their unbeaten run to 13 while their attacking options might be boosted here by the return of Erik Lamela from long-term injury.

The Argentine will likely start as sub and is the only player in the league to score four from the bench in 2021/22. Sevilla are 23/10 to win to nil in the sports betting.

Real Betis vs Athletic Bilbao (Sunday, 3.15pm)

Two defeats on the bounce has brought reality crashing in for high-flying Betis and how they respond will reveal much about the sincerity of their top four aspirations.

All season long, Manuel Pellegrini’s side have played with an adventurous spirit, but we are approaching that juncture when games become tight, tense and must-win. Can they retain their devil-may-care attacking remit?

As for Bilbao, they have been a study in unpredictability all term but what doesn’t help their cause is a worrying propensity to concede late in games. Four of their last six concessions have come beyond the 88th minute.

Betis have not lost three on the spin in 2021/22 so far and should be fancied to continue that trend. They are 6/4 in the football betting to win the second period.

Barcelona vs Osasuna (Sunday, 8pm)

Two goals in two for a returning Memphis Depay is reminder enough of his capabilities. That they have come in late cameos only heightens his achievement.

Will the Dutch forward start at Camp Nou? It’s very possible but via a combination of signings, players coming back from injury, and youngsters shining in their absence, Xavi is blessed with an abundance of attacking options to take down Osasuna. Which they probably will.

Not that Los Rojillos aren’t a threat. With 24% of their goal-haul this term deriving from their defenders, set-pieces will be highly sought after.

Even so, back Barca to score over 2.5 goals at 7/5 in the La Liga betting.

La Liga Outright Winner Prediction

Lionel Messi's decision to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain has blown the La Liga title race wide open. Any mathematical prediction follower can tell you that Messi's departure severely hinders Barca's title ambitions.

Real Madrid are now clear favourites to lift the La Liga trophy at the end of the campaign and Spanish football punters can back Los Blancos at 23/20 to clinch the title.

Despite Messi's departure, Barcelona are next up at 85/40 though it would be fair to suggest that many Camp Nou regulars aren't overly excited ahead of the upcoming La Liga season.

Defending champions ATLETICO MADRID are third favourites once again but Diego Simeone's men relish the underdog status and back-to-back La Liga triumphs could be on the cards.

La Liga Top Scorer Prediction

While the likes of Karim Benzema, Luis Suarez and new Barcelona signing Memphis Depay will attract plenty of attention in La Liga top scorer tips, GERARD MORENO is worth backing at a bigger price.

The Villarreal striker heads into 2021/22 after a solid performance for Spain at the Euros and a repeat of his 23-goal haul from last season might be enough to clinch the La Liga Golden Boot.

Mathematical Prediction

Starting on August 13th, 2021, and running right through to next May, the 91st La Liga season promises to be one of the most fascinating and unpredictable in living memory.

No longer can it be assumed that the title will ultimately end up at Camp Nou or the Bernabéu. No longer can we take it for granted that the runner up will be Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Last season, an engrossing four-way battle saw Atletico Madrid claim their first crown for seven years in a dramatic final-day shoot-out leaving the two Spanish behemoths to rue too many costly league defeats between them.

Have Barca or Los Blancos improved sufficiently over the summer to regain their dominance?

Played across 38 rounds of fixtures and with a one-off extended Christmas break the forthcoming season thankfully sees fans returning to stadia, though none are expected to be at full capacity just yet.

In addition, there are three new teams competing with RCD Espanyol, Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano having secured promotion from Segunda División.

The baulk of our interest however will surely reside at the top where some significant questions await to be answered. If you are looking for our mathematical prediction advice on La Liga, this is the place to look.

Are Barcelona a busted flush, overly reliant on an aging Lionel Messi? How will Real Madrid fare under the returning Carlo Ancelotti? Can Atletico go again?

Such uncertainty means that betting on La Liga will be a whole lot of fun throughout the campaign and to assist you there will be regular tips available from the best experts at 888sport located right here on this very page.

The 2021/22 la Liga season kicks off with Valencia hosting Getafe on Friday August 13th and can be viewed in the UK via LaLigaTV.

This can be accessed as part of a Premier Sports bundle on Sky, Virgin TV and Premier Player.  There is also an add-on subscription available through Amazon Prime.

Typically, each round of fixtures will include several games broadcast live with the biggest matches tending to be reserved for the Saturday and Sunday evening slots. Monday night 7pm and 9pm double-bills are not uncommon.

La Liga Prediction Outright

The last time either Real Madrid or Barcelona were not crowned as champions for two years’ running was all the way back in 1984. It’s sensible therefore to put both firmly in the frame when determining the outright La Liga winner for 2021/22.

Yet uncertainty currently surrounds both of these global institutions with Real Madrid undergoing a period of real change while Barcelona too are in transition, to an extent against their will.

It’s no secret that the Catalonian club are blighted by serious financial difficulties off the field and this has necessitated a fire-sale to raise funds to renew Lionel Messi’s contract.

Such is the importance of their 34-year-old magician that securing his services for the short-term future was crucial to their title aspirations but at what cost?

Elsewhere, swap deals are being proposed to improve on a squad that last term posted Barcelona’s lowest league points haul since 2008.

La Liga tips

At Madrid meanwhile, incoming boss Carlo Ancelotti returns to replace the departed Zinedine Zidane having accrued the second best win ratio of any manager in the club’s history during his first stint in charge.

He has large shoes to fill and they are his own. Any mathematical prediction follower knows just how important Ancelotti could be to Real's title hopes.

The absence of Sergio Ramos after 16 years of outstanding protection will give Real’s defence an unfamiliar look, particularly if Raphael Varane also leaves.

Up front, there are the annual rumours of a big-money signing but, like their rivals, Real are hardly flush at present. Still, of the two it is Los Blancos in the best shape. It is with them where the best value can be found.

That is not to rule out Atletico, of course. Last season taught us not to do that, while Sevilla are fancied in some quarters as distant dark horses. Realistically though, the Andalusians will see another top four finish as a huge success.

Top La Liga Betting Teams

It may be surprising to learn that throughout La Liga’s long and illustrious history there have only been nine different winners but that reflects the longstanding duopoly of Real Madrid and Barcelona who have largely divided up the titles between them.

Of the two it is Los Blancos who boast the most overall with 34 and to put this in proper context that is more than a third of the championships ever competed for. Barcelona, by comparison have had to make do with a meagre 26.

In recent years it is the Catalan giants who have gained the upper hand with ten titles in the 21st century while Valencia and Atletico Madrid deserve great credit for topping the table twice apiece in the modern era.
