La Liga Soccer betting – Matchday 3 Preview

La Liga Online Betting Matchday 3 Preview & Odds (Sep 20-21).

Real Madrid head La Liga outright betting after just two weekends of the Spanish season, priced 2.280* ahead of Barcelona posted at 2.600*. The Catalans\’ odds haven\’t moved much despite the fact that they are yet to win a game, but if that drought continues, then new manager, Josep Guardiola, will start to come under pressure, and we may see Barca\’s title prospects diminish. Get up to 60% better La Liga sports betting odds for all the action in Spain this weekend exclusively at best Sportsbook.

Barca Travel to Gijon Looking for Maiden Win

Spanish giants, Barcelona, travel to the province of Asturias to face newly promoted Sporting Gijon, and try to register their first win of the season. The Catalans have just one point on the board from two games, and though it is very early days, some pressure is already being exerted on their rookie manager, Josep Guardiola. Gijon have spent ten years outside of the top flight, but they have a rich history, with the oldest professional soccer pitch in Spain, El Molinon Stadium. The Big Mill will be packed to the rafters for the first visit of Barca in a decade, but having lost both games so far, expectation will not high. Sportsbook review price the visitors as favourites on their La Liga betting menu: Barcelona 1.840 (-1)*, Sporting Gijon 2.090 (+1)* – a market priced to less than 102%.

Real Madrid Face Tough Test at Santander

Spanish champions, Real Madrid, face a tough test at Racing Santander on Sunday. Los Blancos got off the mark last weekend, but only just, edging newly promoted Numancia in a 4-3 thriller at the Bernabeu. Coach, Bernd Schuster, will be worried about his team\’s porous defence, which has conceded 10 times in four domestic fixtures this term. So far this term Santander have recorded creditable draws against Sevilla and Barcelona, suggesting they can hold their own against the Galacticos. However, last season Madrid did the double over them with an aggregate 5-1 score-line, and Sportbook have the visitors as marginal favourites: Racing Santander 2.140 (0 & 0.5)*, Real Madrid 1.806 (0 & -0.5)*.
