Valencia v Barcelona Prediction & Betting Tips, 7th October 2018

Barcelona

Valencia v Barcelona La Liga Preview, 7th October 7.45pm

It was a masterclass from Lionel Messi and co in midweek as they destroyed Tottenham in the Champions League. They needed that win as they had been in a funk of winless results. Valencia haven’t been having a great season but they got a good Champions League point at Manchester United in midweek. Can they keep Barcelona at bay though? Read our Valencia v Barcelona betting tips for more.

Valencia v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Barcelona 4/6
Draw 10/3
Valencia 7/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 4th, 2018 at 1:53 p.m.)


Valencia News and Form

It has been a strange season for Valencia because they have been really hard to beat, but at the same time, they have struggled to record wins. They head into the weekend with a W1 D5 L1 record this season in La Liga. They got their first win of the term in a 1-0 win at Real Sociedad last weekend. They have come up with only the two goals in their last four games and have been far from proficient in front of goals this season. The under 2.5 goals option looks solid at 27/20 odds for this* (betting odds taken on October 5th, 2018 at 2:32 pm).

Valencia have drawn their three home games this season, two at 1-1 including their home opener which was against Atletico Madrid. The other was a 0-0 tie. Just 14% of their games this season home and away combined have made it over 2.5 goals. So they should have the strengths to at least keep the score down in this one. Valencia have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches against Barcelona in all competitions as well.

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona’s league form hasn’t been great lately so this is a big game for them at the Mestalla. They are top of the table but have failed to win any of their last three (D2 L1). The only league defeat that they have suffered this season did happen in their last away fixture as they suffered a shock 2-1 loss at bottom side Leganes. Overall the Catalans are W4 D2 L1 this season and they have scored in all seven of their fixtures. We are looking at both teams NOT to score at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 5th, 2018 at 2:32 pm).

Barcelona don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last five league games, but Valencia aren’t a great threat. Because of the sheer brilliance of Lionel Messi in midweek, who got a brace against Spurs, he is worth a look at 13/5 in the first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 5th, 2018 at 2:32 pm). On their travels in La Liga this season Barcelona have scored four goals in their three games, which isn’t a high output. They have scored all but one of their away goals in the second half of matches.

Valencia v Barcelona Head to Head

These two met four times last season (league and Copa del Rey) and Barcelona came out on top with three wins and a draw. The draw was in this corresponding fixture. Barcelona are undefeated in their last six against Valencia in all competitions. Barcelona have scored at least two goals in four of their last six against Valencia.

Who will win – Valencia v Barcelona Predictions

The result that Barcelona got in midweek should have given them a big lift. That was Barcelona back to their very best and we expect them to push on from there. Valencia haven’t been that strong this season and we are backing the away win.

Alaves v Real Madrid Prediction & Betting Tips, 6th October 2018

Real Madrid

Alaves v Real Madrid La Liga Preview, 6th October 5.30pm

Alaves may mount something of a challenge in this one as they have had a good season so far and start in the top six this weekend. Real Madrid have just gone off the boil slightly so it is a good time perhaps for Alaves to be meeting them. Read our Alaves v Real Madrid betting tips for more.

Alaves v Real Madrid Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 2/5
Draw 15/4
Alaves 15/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 4th, 2018 at 1:53 p.m.)


Alaves News and Form

Alaves can be pretty pleased with their work this season in the top flight as they go into the weekend with a W3 D2 L2 record. They suffered what was their second defeat of the season last weekend when they went down against Levante. That broke their good run of five undefeated in the league that they were on. They are still undefeated on home soil for the season with a W1 D2 record up on the board.

They aren’t a side that you really look to for a lot of goals. Because of that, under 2.5 goals feels like it is worth a flutter at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 5th, 2018 at 2:05 pm). All of their home goals which have been scored this season have been netted in the second half of games. Because of that, the half time draw does have appeal.

Real Madrid News and Form

Gareth Bale remains an injury doubt for real Madrid. He was rested in midweek as Los Blancos suffered a shock loss against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League. So that is a three-match winless streak that Los Blancos are on at the moment (D1 L2) and they have failed to score a single goal in that sequence of games. They badly need to bounce-back. They were held to 0-0 draw at home against rivals Atletico Madrid in the big derby match last weekend.

Real Madrid are W1 D1 L1 on the road this term, the lone defeat coming in their most recent road game, a heavy 3-0 at Sevilla. While they have some fantastic head to head form against Alaves, and even though Real Madrid are undefeated in 17 of their last 19 league games, but they look a bit shaky at the moment. Looking at the current standings the 1-1 correct score has appeal in the correct score market at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 5th, 2018 at 2:05 pm).

Alaves v Real Madrid Head to Head

Real Madrid won both league meetings with Alaves last season but there was on a narrow one on the road against them. Los Blancos are on a nine-match winning streak against Alaves in league action and have four clean sheets in their last six against them.

Who will win – Alaves v Real Madrid Predictions

Alaves have done well this season and we are going to back them to get something out of this game. With Real Madrid not running in top gear, there could be enough in this for the home side to pick up a point. draw.

Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Prediction & Betting Tips, 29th September 2018

Barcelona

Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao La Liga Preview, 29th September 3:15 pm

Barcelona suffered a shock defeat in league action in midweek, conceding two goals in two minutes to lose against bottom side Levante. That will have rocked them and it will be interesting to see the response that they have. They play host to Athletic Bilbao at the Nou Camp on the weekend, who aren’t carrying winning form with them. Read our Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao betting tips for more.

Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Betting Odds*

Barcelona 1/8
Draw 15/2
Athletic Bilbao 16/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)


Barcelona News and Form

After winning their first four games of the season Barcelona have picked up just the one point in their last two games. That was a draw against Girona and then that shock loss against Leganes in midweek. They had to come from behind to rescue that point against Girona and then threw away the lead at Leganes. So they have just had a bit of a testing time. Their form at the Nou Camp in the league this season is W2 D1 and they have scored thirteen goals in those three games.

The obvious look here, especially with the goals that Barcelona have been conceding, is to go over 2.5 goals. There’s not much value in that of course so we are going to swing under 3.5 goals at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm) which looks much better. The Catalins have not banked a clean sheet in any of their last four league games now. Just because of that then a Barcelona 2-1 option in the correct score could offer a bit of value at the moment at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm).

Athletic Bilbao News and Form

Bilbao have posted a W1 D3 L1 record for the season and they did show up well recently in a big contest. They played out a 1-1 home draw with Real Madrid. It came unstuck for them in midweek though as they were hammered 3-0 at home by Villarreal. That is no clean sheet for Athletic Bilbao this season then and that is going to leave them vulnerable for this trip to the Nou Camp on Saturday.

You have a quote of even money on both teams to score in the match* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm) which backs them to at least get a consolation on the board in the game. Away from home this season Bilbao have posted the one draw. That’s the extent of their road games this season. That was a 2-2 draw against Real Betis last weekend. So that is four-match winless streak (D3 L1) that they are on at the moment and it looks a bit of a stretch to see them causing an upset at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Head to Head

Barcelona have winning home form against Athletic Bilbao as they are on a six-match winning streak at the Nou Camp against them in all competitions. Barcelona have scored at least three goals in five of those six matches in that sequence. Overall home and away Barcelona have won the last four meetings against Bilbao, losing just one of the last eleven against them.

Who will win – Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Predictions

We are expecting a response from Barcelona. That is the natural thing to expect really. Their results have dropped and you can’t really expect that to go on much further. That will probably have had a rocket up them and we will back a Barcelona win & both teams to score.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Prediction & Betting Tips, 29th September 2018

Real Madrid

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid La Liga Preview, 29th September 7.45pm

Real Madrid had a shocker in midweek. After seeing Barcelona lose to Leganes earlier in the evening Los Blancos had the chance to go top of the league, But they blew their lines and were hammered 3-0 by Sevilla. So the pressure mounts on them for this Madrid derby. Atletico would jump ahead of them if they were to collect three points at the Bernabeu. Read our Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid betting tips for more.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 17/20
Draw 13/5
Atletico Madrid 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)


Real Madrid News and Form

There was a bit of a wake-up call for Real Madrid in midweek in a 3-0 loss at Sevilla. They had been in decent form before that. That was their first league defeat of the season and have to fight back for the first time this term. It also leaves them with only the one clean sheet in their last five league games as well. Both teams to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 6:20 pm). Real Madrid have won all three of their home games for the season so they do have that going for them.

They have scored seven goals across their three home games and two of their three home wins have been with a clean sheet. But there have been wobbles at the back from them recently and they are facing a good Atletico attack here. Karim Benzema has overtaken Gareth Bale as their top scorer for the season with four goals. In the first goalscorer market it is Bale who is the 5/4 first goalscorer favourite (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 6:20 pm). All five of the home goals that they have conceded this season have been in the first half of matches. They have scored 80% of their home goals in the second half.

Atletico Madrid News and Form

Atletico had a bit of a slow start to the new season but they have won their last two convincingly and appear to be settling down into some form. They are W3 D2 L1 for the season so have been hard to beat still. All three of their wins have been with a clean sheet a well. Away from home they are W1 D1 L1 so have been a bit hit and miss there and because of that, it may be hard seeing them pick up a win in this one. But they should be good enough to get on the scoresheet and a Real Madrid 2-1 correct score is at 15/2 odds (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 6:20 pm).

Antoine Griezmann was on the scoresheet in midweek and he has two goals for the season in the league. Away from home this season Atletico Madrid have not been trailing at half time in any of their away games (W2D1) and they have scored first in four of their games. Considering the number of goals that Real Madrid have given up in the first half of matches then Atletico to score first offers a little bit of value at 11/8 odds (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 6:20 pm).

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Head to Head

These two met at the European Super Cup back in August and Atletico Madrid took a 4-2 win. In last season’s La Liga they drew both games. In the last ten games in all competitions between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, it is actually the latter who are slightly ahead. Atletico holds a W3 D5 L2 record in that sequence against Real. The last two meetings in the league at the Bernabeu have returned a 1-1 draw.

Who will win – Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Predictions

Real Madrid were really brought down to earth in midweek, missing the chance to get themselves ahead of Barcelona. Atletico are just getting up a head of steam but we going to just lean on the home side to edge it by a one goal margin.

Sevilla v Real Madrid Prediction & Betting Tips, 26th September 2018

Real Madrid

Sevilla v Real Madrid La Liga Preview, 26th September 8.00pm

Hopefully, this will be another entertaining encounter between these two. Real Madrid are now tied at the top with Barcelona after the weekend but they face a tricky road game at Sevilla. Sevilla have only won twice this season but they have great home form going against Los Blancos. Read our Sevilla v Real Madrid betting tips for more.

Sevilla v Real Madrid Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 13/20
Sevilla 7/2
Draw 16/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.)


Sevilla News and Form

Sevilla are W2 D1 L2 for this season so far and they produced their second win of the term on the weekend as they hammered Levante 6-2 on the road. Both of their wins have been away from home this season and Wissam Ben Yedder netted a hattrick in the game at Levante. That leaves him as 8/5 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.). It has been just the one point in two home games this season for Seville and they are waiting for their first home goal too.

They have taken one clean sheet in their five games this season and have scored in just two of them. But this is so interesting because of their form against Real Madrid and we are going to take a look at both teams to score at 4/9 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.). They have scored at least two goals in each of their last six home games against Real Madrid in all competitions.

Real Madrid News and Form

Real Madrid bagged three points in a 1-0 home win over Espanyol on the weekend and that pulled them level on points with Barcelona at the top of the table. Their form out on the road is W1 D1 and they have scored exactly one goal in their last two games so they haven’t quite been firing on all cylinders up front. In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.). With Champions League action in midweek last week and a quick return to league action over the weekend, this is a busy period and the 1-1 does have appeal. However that would buck something of a trend as Los Merengues have netted at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 12 games against Sevilla.

Sevilla v Real Madrid Head to Head

Sevilla are unbeaten in their last four games on home soil against Real Madrid but it gets better than that. They have lost just one of their last seven home fixtures against them (W4 D2 L1). There have been so many high-scoring games between these two recently each of the last eleven have all gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings.

Who will win – Sevilla v Real Madrid Predictions

Hopefully, this one lives up to its billing. Sevilla have given Real Madrid some tough challenges recently and in this quick turnaround of matches, we are going to back them to dig in there and get a point out of this one. A Sevilla +0.75 Asian Handicap could suffice.

Barcelona

Leganes v Barcelona La Liga Preview, 26th September 7.00pm

Barcelona dropped their first points of the new season over the weekend as they were held to a 2-2 draw at home against Girona. That was an unexpected turn up for the books. They head out on the road in midweek to take on Leganes who have been having a shocking time of things with just one point from five games. Read our Leganes v Barcelona betting tips for more.

Leganes v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Draw 6/1
Leganes 10/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.)
[button bookmaker=”bet365″]

Leganes News and Form

Leganes have had a miserable start to the La Liga season with just the one point on the board from their five games played so far this term. That point was earned in their second match of the season, a home draw against Real Sociedad. They have lost their last two games by a 1-0 scoreline but as they are facing Barcelona we are going to look a little larger. A comfortable Barcelona 2-0 option is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.).

In total Leganes have scored just the four goals in their games this season and half of those have been at home. Leganes have been level at half time and losing at full time in each of their last three matches so there is a trend running there with that. Each of their last four games against Barcelona in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals so there’s another trend* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.).

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona had to rescue a point against Girona in a Catalan derby on the weekend, Gerard Pique getting an equaliser in a 2-2 draw for them after they had had defender Clement Lenglet sent off. That leaves them with a pretty handy W4 D1 record for the season though and they are likely to bounce straight back to winning ways in midweek. Barcelona have won both of their away games this season, taking down Valladolid and Real Sociedad both by a one-goal margin.

So it hasn’t been big wins for them on the road yet and because of that the more conservative Barcelona to win by a 2-goal margin appeals at 10/3 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.) as they are taking on one of the bottom sides in the league. All three of their away goals this season have come after the halftime break in matches.

Leganes v Barcelona Head to Head

There have only been the four previous games between the two clubs and Barcelona have won all four of them. They have scored a total of twelve goals in their four games against Girona, netting at least three goals in three of those. Surprisingly they have taken just the one clean sheet in those four games.

Who will win – Leganes v Barcelona Predictions

Barcelona should be comfortable in this one out on the road against the bottom side in the league. They had a blip last weekend but can respond strongly and Barcelona to win to nil is the obvious option to look for in Leganes v Barcelona betting tips.

Barcelona have made a winning start to their La Liga title defence with a 100% record going so far.

Barcelona 1/12
Draw 10/1
Girona 20/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 21st, 2018 at 4:26 p.m.)


Barcelona News and Form

Four games played in the Spanish top flight this season and it is four wins for Barcelona. The Catalans have shown some scoring muscle on home soil as well as they have rattled off a remarkable eleven goals in two games at the Nou Camp. It has been impressive stuff from them and Lionel Messi has been well among the goals. He has four goals to his name already this season and all four of those have been on home soil. That makes Messi the 15/8 first goalscorer favourite for the match* (betting odds taken on September 21st, 2018 at 4:15 pm).

Barcelona have won 30 of their last 33 home games in La Liga now and they have scored at least two goals in 30 of their last 33 at the Nou Camp. Their numbers are just so impressive and we are going to look over 3.5 goals at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on September 21st, 2018 at 4:15 pm) because they could have a field day the way they are playing at the moment. Even coming off the back of midweek Champions League action there shouldn’t be a let up in Barcelona’s form. A Barcelona 3-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 21st, 2018 at 4:15 pm).

Girona News and Form

Girona have won their last two games in the top flight, taking out Villarreal and Celta Vigo. That was after picking up just the one point from their opening two games of the season. Their only loss in their W2 D1 L1 record this season was a heavy home reverse against Real Madrid, losing that one 4-1. So that is a pretty decent indicator of what could happen this weekend. This will be just their second away game of the new season, their other one ending in a 1-0 at Villarreal which was actually a really good result. In three of their four games, this season Girona have been drawing at half time. That could be a stretch in this one though and a Barcelona/Barcelona half-time/ full-time bet is as short as 4/11 odds* (betting odds taken on September 21st, 2018 at 4:15 pm).

Barcelona v Girona Head to Head

There is not much head to head form between the two clubs as last season’s two games in La Liga are the only previous meetings between them. Barcelona took a 6-1 home win in this corresponding fixture last season after producing a 3-0 win out on the road against them.

Who will win – Barcelona v Girona Predictions

The simple option for Barcelona v Girona betting tips is to back the home side to win to nil. Barcelona Have shown some fine form already this season and shouldn’t get tripped up in this home fixture against a side they beat comfortably last season.

Real Madrid v Espanyol La Liga Preview, 22nd September 7.45pm

Real Madrid has kept pace well with Barcelona at the start of the season with a W3 D1 record on the board from their four games. They had Champions League duty in midweek and they will get a home game against a fellow top-four side. Espanyol are sat just three points back of Los Blancos so this would be a big haul of points if they could manage to get them. Read our Real Madrid v Espanyol betting tips for more.

Real Madrid v Espanyol Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 2/11
Draw 6/1
Espanyol 12/1

* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 20th, 2018 at 7:35 p.m.)


Real Madrid News and Form

It has been comfortable enough for the large part for Real Madrid this season. They won their opening three matches of the new season but did have a bit of a battle on their hands last weekend. They paid a visit to Athletic Bilbao and had to fight back from a goal down to get a 1-1 draw. We see them being a little more comfortable this weekend and in the correct score market a Real Madrid 2-0 option is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 20th, 2018 at 7:35 p.m.).

There is a trend for that as their last three wins over Espanyol have been by that scoreline. Gareth Bale continued his fine early season form in front of goal as he scored against Roma in midweek in the Champions League and he is a solid 13/5 first goalscorer option for the game* (Betting Odds were taken from September 20th, 2018 at 7:35 p.m.). Real Madrid are two wins for two on home soil this season with six goals netted. They have scored at least 2 goals in all but one of their last 19 home games against Espanyol in all competitions.

Espanyol News and Form

Espanyol have a W2 D1 L1 record on the board which starts them in fourth place this weekend. That’s not a bad start from them at all. It may be worth looking under 2.5 goals at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 20th, 2018 at 7:35 p.m.) and there is a reason for that. Espanyol have seen 11 of their last 13 league games go under the 2.5 goal line. Plus they have kept under the goal line in their last four games against Real Madrid in all options as well. So there is a trend. So far this season out on the road in La Liga, Espanyol have one point from their two away games, picking up the point at Celta Vigo on the opening weekend of the seasoning recently losing at Alaves.

Real Madrid v Espanyol Head to Head

These two traded home wins last season surprisingly and both results were with a clean sheet. In none of the last six league meetings have both teams scored in a fixture. Real Madrid have won five of the last six meetings all to nil and each of their last three wins over Espanyol have been by a 2-0 scoreline. The overall head to head between the two is Real Madrid 36-9 ahead with seven drawn games.

Who will win – Real Madrid v Espanyol Predictions

We have to stick with the home win in this one. Real Madrid are a little shaky at the back though but we are going to back them to get out with a win and a clean sheet. For our Real Madrid v Espanyol betting tips, we are going with the Real Madrid to win to nil.

Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid La Liga, 15th September 7.45pm

Athletic Bilbao have made a decent enough start to the new La Liga season having collected four points from their two games played. This is their first real big test of the season so far though as they play host to Real Madrid. After the sale of their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid have actually looked pretty solid and have three wins from three under their belt so far and Gareth Bale has really stepped up. Read our Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid betting tips for more.

Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Betting Odds*

Real Madrid 8/15
Draw 10/3
Athletic Bilbao 9/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)


Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Betting Tips

It has been just the two games from Bilbao this season as their fixture against Rayo Vallecano was postponed before the international break. So this is a tough game to get back into action with and it will be their third straight home game for the term. So far they are W1 D1 having taken a success against Leganes and then frustrated to a draw against Huesca. Bilbao though have scored exactly two goals in both league games this season and because of that, we feel they can push Madrid.

Both teams to score is at 4/7 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). They have opened the scoring in both of their games so far this season but were drawing at half time in both of those. So if we can take that on a bit then a good betting tip for Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid is the Draw/Real Madrid half time/ full-time option. Last season Bilbao had a rough season but even then only lost two home games against sides finishing the top half of the table.

Real Madrid are three wins from three for the season and are just ticking over nicely. They actually look more of a complete team without CR7 as there is a bigger, better balance and sharing of duties. They have still managed to come up with ten goals in three games so far this season so they are going well in front of goal. Gareth Bale has, importantly for his career, had a great start to the season and will be a heavily backed option in the anytime goalscorer market.

Their only away game this season saw them post a 4-1 success at Girona and three of those goals were after the halftime break. They may get a sterner test against Bilbao and Real Madrid to win by a one-goal margin appeals in our betting tips at 11/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).

Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Head to Head

There were two draws between Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid in La Liga last season. Prior to that Real Madrid were on a four-match winning streak in the fixture. But things are even in the last four meetings between them in Bilbao with two wins each. Three of Real Madrid’s last four wins over Bilbao have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Real Madrid hold a W2 D1 L1 record on the road in this fixture. The overall head to head between them in all competitions reads Real Madrid W34 D8 L12.

Who will win – Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid Predictions

For our Athletic Bilbao v Real Madrid betting tips, one of the top options we see is Real Madrid to win by a one-goal margin. They found Athletic Bilbao a tough nut to crack last season but they have started this season confidently and they can edge this.

Sociedad v Barcelona Betting Tips

So Real Sociedad will be kicking off their home campaign with this one and it’s a tough one for them to get stuck into. Naturally with no home form because of no action so far this season, we aren’t sure what we are going to get from Sociedad. Their away form for the season reads W1 D1 L1 and their defense hasn’t been at the races. They have conceded five goals in their three games and that’s not tight enough to expect them to shut out Barcelona.

Just before the international break Sociedad lost at Eibar. We are going to back the home side to at least get on the scoresheet though and both teams to score is at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm). Last season on home soil in the Spanish top flight Sociedad posted a W10 D3 L6 record but they lost three of their games on home soil against the top-four finishers (W1 against Atletico Madrid). Are they good enough to stand toe to toe with Barcelona? Sociedad are on an eleven match scoring streak at home.

Barcelona are chugging along with three straight wins. Just before the international break, they destroyed the newly promoted Huesca 8-2 at the Nou Camp. In their only away game so far this season they edged out a 1-0 win at Valladolid. We think that Real Sociedad may be a little more open at the back and a Barcelona -1.25 Asian Handicap is at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm). Lionel Messi has four goals so far this season but all four of those have been at home. Ousmane Dembele has their only away goal this term. So far,

Sociedad v Barcelona Head to Head

It was back to back wins for Barcelona in their matches against Sociedad last season. They have collected a win in each of their last five against them in all competitions, undefeated six. Barcelona have won all but one of their previous home games against Sociedad in all competitions (D1). The Catalans have scored thirteen goals in their last four games against Real Sociedad alone.

Who will win – Sociedad v Barcelona Predictions

We don’t see Barcelona slipping up against a side who are yet to find their feet for the season. It will be a big game for Real Sociedad as it is their first home fixture of the term, but still, they may not have enough of an answer to stop the visitors. It might be worth looking at Barcelona -1.25 Asian Handicap.
