  • Anyone who told you that Espanyol and Sevilla would be two of the top three teams in La Liga at this point of the season is either a liar or a savant. Espanyol are currently in second place with a record of 6-3-2 thanks to a fantastic defensive performance thus far. Meanwhile, Sevilla are right behind them with a mark of 6-2-3, and their offense is currently averaging two goals per game. This will be a clash of strengths on Sunday evening.   More

  • Julen Lopetegui’s tenure at Real Madrid lasted less than three months. Signing Lopetegui away from Spain right before the World Cup was met with a bit of consternation, and he needed to get off to a good start to make fans forget about that and to take the pressure off after replacing Zinedine Zidane.   More

  • The first El Clasico of the year may not have Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, but this is still the most highly anticipated domestic league match to date this season. Barcelona are sitting atop La Liga with 18 points through nine games coming into this one, but they have not been as convincing as   More

  • If you’re only a casual soccer fan, you might be shocked to find out that going into the second international break, neither Barcelona nor the Madrid clubs were at the top of the La Liga table. Instead, that honor belongs to Sevilla who are a point ahead of a crowded field of contenders based on their   More

  • For nearly two decades Barcelona and Real Madrid have dominated Spanish football. The two giants have ruled La Liga with an iron fist and have amassed a bevy of titles between themselves. Coming into the season, one of the two sides was expected to top the table once more, but a funny thing happened on the way to that certainty.   More

  • Barcelona are looking to win their fourth LaLiga title in five years this season. Through the first month of the campaign, the Blaugrana looked like the overwhelming favorites to repeat. They won each of their first four matches, and they were tied with Real Madrid at the top of the table. However, they have   More

  • Coming into the season, the three overwhelming favorites to win La Liga were the two Madrid clubs and Barcelona. No team outside of those three has won the league since Valencia did it during the 2003-04 season, and only once has another club finished runner-up.   More

  • Life is good if you’re a Real Madrid fan. Spain’s most decorated club got off to a good start in the Champions League with a 3-0 thrashing of Roma on Wednesday. They will turn their attention back to La Liga this weekend with Espanyol coming to town. Espanyol gave us one of the upsets of the year last season,   More

  • There’s a little bit of turmoil at the goalkeeper position for Athletic Bilbao coming into this crucial match with Real Madrid. Superstar Kepa Arrizabalaga was sold to Chelsea for an exorbitant sum last month, and the club was counting on Iago Herrerin to step up and take over as the team’s main man in the net.   More

  • It’s a new season, but Barcelona have already won two trophies. They claimed the Spanish Supercup with a 2-1 win over Sevilla in Madrid three weeks ago, and they won their annual friendly known as the Joan Gamper Cup over Boca Juniors shortly afterwards. This week, they will take on newly promoted SD Huesca and are huge favorites on the La Liga betting line.   More

  • Sevilla started their La Liga campaign with a bang in a 4-1 rout over Rayo Vallecano last Sunday. Andre Silva notched a hat trick in his La Liga debut for Sevilla, giving supporters hope that he may be the answer to their problems at forward.   More

  • Don’t look now, but Spain may not be ruled by Real Madrid and Barcelona any longer. This offseason, Valencia and Atletico Madrid made a ton of moves in order to compete for both La Liga and Champions League glory. The two sides finished in the top four of La Liga last year, ensuring a spot in the Champions League and the financial windfall that comes with it. These two clubs will kick off their La Liga campaigns on a Monday night primetime showdown in Valencia.   More

    La Liga Season Preview

    By Tom Wilkinson When it comes to top heavy leagues there is not much that can compare to La Liga. Looking at the odds for the 2018-2019 season we find that three teams are listed with odds of 15-1 or less and then every other team has odds of 125-1 or more. There are only three teams worth considering to win the title and they are Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.   More

  • Coming into the final weekend of La Liga, there isn’t a ton at stake. The three teams that are set to be relegated have known they are going down for some time. Also, La Liga’s four Champions League spots have been determined as well as its two Europa League slots. All that’s left is pride at this point.   More

  • With just two matches left for every team in La Liga, the final table is coming into focus. Much has been decided already, but the two Europa League spots are still up for grabs. The result of the second Sevilla Derby could determine those final two spots.   More
