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 19 of the 2022-23 La Liga campaign.
Don’t expect goals when Celta meet Athletic Bilbao
Athletic Bilbao continued their disappointing run of four winless games when they lost 2-0 against Real Madrid last weekend.
Next up, the Basque giants will take on Celta Vigo, who come into the game on the back of their 1-0 defeat against Mallorca.
Both sides have had trouble scoring in their recent games. We expect Bilbao to have a better share of the goalscoring chances.
However, Celta’s defensive record in home games suggests Bilbao will struggle to find the back of the net in the upcoming match.
Goals likely on both sides when Real Madrid host Sociedad
Real Madrid returned to winning ways by beating Bilbao last Sunday.
Given Barcelona’s current form, there’s no room for mistakes for Real Madrid. The Blancos should win every game and wait for their arch-rivals to drop points.
We expect Real Madrid’s in-form attacking line to score at least once against Sociedad at Santiago Bernabeu.
However, their defensive performance against Bilbao, combined with Sociedad’s attacking consistency in recent weeks, convinces us that they won’t be able to finish the upcoming match with a clean sheet.
Expect goals when Almeria take on Espanyol
Almeria have remained winless in their last four La Liga games but lost only one of them.
Solid defensive displays have saved Almeria from dropping too many points this season. Their conservative approach to games has helped them remain well above the relegation zone.
We expect them to do the same when hosting Espanyol on Friday.
On the other hand, Espanyol’s recent record in away games doesn’t suggest they will push for more than one goal at Estadio Mediterraneo.
