Sunday’s La Liga previews: 2012/13 – round 35

10 May


Rayo Vallecano v Valencia, 11:00

Well, I wanted to recommend both teams to score or even over 2.5 goals in this Rayo (13/5) v Valencia (21/20) clash as each side still has something to play for, but the prices – 4/7 and 13/20 respectively – are simply too short.

Indeed, I’ve put a few worth a small punt bets out this weekend, but I can’t see anything in this one. Rayo + 1 goal could be worth a pop at 3/4, however, but it’s in-play or nothing with my money.

Real Betis v Celta de Vigo, 16:00

Betis (10/11) did well to lead Barcelona at Camp Nou last weekend, but this weekend’s game at home to relegation threatened Celta (14/5) is exactly the kind of game they’ll lose – i.e. to someone who needs the points more.

Of course, as readers of my column (wherever it may have been) will know, I refuse to oppose Betis due to my love for the club. However, I do think that they’ll drop points today – and you can bet on whatever you want!

Recommendations: Over 2.5 goals (7/10) and double chance Celta Vigo or draw (17/20)

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona, 18:00

Right, Barca (19/20) haven’t been playing well and Messi has been kept on the bench due to fitness issues, but they should still be able to beat an Atletico Madrid (14/5) side who have nothing to play for having wrapped up third place.

Also, and most certainly the biggest factor for me, Atleti play Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final only days after this game – and why risk you best players against Barca when you haven’t been able to beat Real Madrid since 1999?

Recommendation: Barcelona (19/20)

Malaga v Sevilla, 20:00

Difficult game to call as while Malaga (17/10) are good value on home soil at their price, the Anchovies played Real Madrid midweek and have debatable motivation given that they are banned from European competition in 2013/14. Also, the club’s manager and best players are highly likely in the summer due to mounting debts.

Sevilla (also 17/10), of course, are a terrible away side but do have something to gain in potential victory as they can still qualify for next season’s Europa League. But do you want to trust Sevila? I don’t and abstain from betting on this game, but if you must punt then over 2.5 goals is the best I can guess at – available at 7/10.
