Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the La Liga games of the weekend.
As we prepare for another 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 Matchday 17 of the 2022-23 La Liga campaign.
Goals likely on both sides when Sociedad take on Bilbao
Sociedad go into their next La Liga match on the back of a three-game winning streak.
Having reached the third spot on the league table, Sociedad will take on Bilbao this weekend. Their opponents have remained unbeaten in their last three games, keeping two clean sheets.
However, given Sociedad’s incredible attacking form, we expect them to find the back of the net against Bilbao.
On the other hand, Bilbao’s goal numbers in away games convince us that they will also score against Sociedad, who have the worst defensive stats among La Liga’s top nine sides.
Back Atletico Madrid to beat Almeria
Atletico Madrid continued their struggle for consistency when they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Barcelona last weekend.
This weekend, Diego Simeone’s side take on Almeria, who come into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat against Real Sociedad.
We expect Almeria to take a conservative approach to the game at their home stadium. However, Atletico’s attacking display against Barca, combined with Almeria’s poor defensive form, convince us that Rojiblancos will outscore their opponents on Sunday.
Expect goals on both ends when Getafe meet Espanyol
Espanyol haven’t won a league game since their 1-0 win over Valladolid on October 16.
The 19th-placed side hope to end their disappointing run of results when they meet Getafe this weekend.
Getafe will undoubtedly push for victory at their home stadium. Having scored in their last four games, the hosts will most likely find enough chances against the Catalans side’s out-of-form backline.
However, Espanyol’s post-World Cup results suggest they might also manage to find the back of the net in the upcoming game. The guests have scored in all of their last five games, registering five goals in their last two outings.
Espanyol’s record in away games suggests they won’t try to escape with a goalless draw in the upcoming game.
