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

As we prepare for the opening matchday of the La Liga season, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.

Let’s check out three betting tips for the first Matchday of the 2022-23 La Liga campaign.

Don’t expect goals when Cadiz host Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad start the new season on the back of consecutive pre-season defeats against Eibar and Athletic Bilbao. The Basque side will take on Cadiz in their opening game of the new campaign.

We expect Sociedad to push for a victory against their hosts. However, their recent attacking stats convince us they won’t find too many goalscoring chances.

On the other hand, Cadiz have shown they are a tough team to score against in their pre-season games. They will most likely try their best to avoid starting the season with a home defeat.

Back Valencia to beat Girona on home soil

Following an underwhelming 2021-22 season, Valencia are back with a few additions to their squad to start the new campaign.

This weekend, the Bats will take on the newly-promoted Girona, who have scored in all of their pre-season games.

We expect the guests to push for surprises when they meet Valencia at Mestalla. However, the hosts’ superior firepower convinces us they can outscore their opponents on Sunday.

Don’t expect goals when Valladolid face Villarreal

Villarreal defeated Inter 4-2 in their last friendly game before the start of the new La Liga campaign.

However, we expect them to take a more conservative approach to their league opener against Valladolid.

The Yellow Submarines have shown no signs of slowing down in their attacking line. However, their opponents’ in-form defence will most likely keep them at bay for most of the upcoming match.

On the other hand, Unai Emery’s tendency to escape with narrow wins over solid defensive lines convinces us a similar scenario will play out this Saturday.
