La Liga Online Betting Matchday 2 Preview & Odds (Sep 13-14).

La Liga betting at Best sportsbook unsurprisingly had champions, Real Madrid, as the favourites in their pre-season outright La Liga betting market, closely followed by their fierce rivals, Barcelona.

See whether these Spanish Giants can raise their game this weekend, and get up to 60% better La Liga betting odds at Sportsbook.

Real & Barca Look to Bounce Back from Early Set Back

Both Barcelona and defending champions, Real Madrid, will look to bounce back from surprising defeats on matchday one of the new Spanish season. The pair were defeated on the road, but this weekend have home fixtures, for which they will be fancied to put things right.

Real Madrid entertain Numancia, the conquerors of Barca last Sunday. The newly promoted side scored against the run of play, but managed to hang on for an unlikely victory, their first ever against Barcelona. On that evidence it seems unlikely that will be able to produce a similar result at the Bernabeu where Bernd Schuster\’s side lost just twice at home last term, winning the other 17 games. The Galacticos haven\’t started well, despite winning the Spanish Super Cup they conceded five times over two legs, then lost 2-1 at Deportivo, but are still favourites on the La Liga sports betting at Diamond Sportsbook: Real Madrid 1.840 (-1.5)*, Numancia 2.090 (+1.5)*.

Barcelona Suffer Disappointment in Opening Game

Barca got off to the worst possible start to a key season for the club, losing at newly promoted Numancia. After a summer of blood letting, the Catalans were expected to come out fighting, but instead failed to land a killer blow against one of La Liga\’s minnows. It was an inauspicious start for new coach, Josep Guardiola, who will be eager to record a confidence boosting win at home to Racing Santander this weekend. Racing had an excellent campaign last term, finishing sixth, and earning a place in the UEFA Cup. However, they have lost their last eleven visits to the Nou Camp and Platinum sportsbook make them under dogs on their La Liga Asian Handicap betting: Barcelona 1.926 (-1.5)*, Racing Santander 2.000 (+1.5)*.
