Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the La Liga games of the weekend.

As we prepare for another weekend of La Liga football, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 31 of La Liga.

Don’t expect goals when Cadiz host Real Betis

Cadiz has displayed impressive stability in their backline in recent weeks. They have conceded only twice in their last five games, with Villarreal, Valencia, and Atletico Madrid being among their opponents.

Following their goalless draw against Valencia at Mestalla, the Pirates will host Real Betis this weekend. Betis are in a close race to get back into the top four. However, they have failed to maintain consistency with their performances lately.

Betis scored four goals against Osasuna last Sunday, but we don’t expect them to find easy goalscoring chances against Cadiz. The hosts will most likely look to benefit from counter-attacks. However, Betis’ defensive stats also suggest they won’t give out too many opportunities to their opponents.

Expect goals on both sides when Osasuna meet Alaves

Osasuna suffered a 4-1 defeat against Real Betis last week, which exposed their defensive struggles. They have managed to keep a clean sheet in only one of their last six games, conceding ten goals.

On Sunday, the Rojillos will face Alaves, who also struggle with similar problems. They are trying hard to escape the rock bottom of the league table. However, poor defensive stats have nullified their impressive attacking performances in recent weeks.

Alaves scored against Atletico Madrid last week, and we believe they can do the same against Osasuna. However, their shaky backline will most likely provide the hosts with more than enough opportunities to find the back of the net.

Don’t expect goals when Villarreal host Athletic Bilbao

Villarreal showcased their brilliant defensive form by defeating Bayern Munich 1-0 on Wednesday. The Yellow Submarines must now lock horns with Athletic Bilbao, who also have one of the best backlines of La Liga.

Bilbao defeated Elche 2-1 last week, with a last-minute strike from Jose Pomares ruining their clean sheet. They look to leapfrog Villarreal from the seventh place on the table by beating them at El Madrigal. However, we expect the hosts to make it hard for them to score on Saturday. On the other hand, Villarreal’s recent attacking form does not convince us that they will find many goalscoring chances against Bilbao’s well-organized defence.
