The Spanish Primera División, also known as La Liga has some of the best players in the world. These teams play some of the best football there is and it is a joy to watch. La Liga is one of the most popular football leagues in the world as well, coming in closely behind the English Premier League. There are 20 teams in the division and it generally ends up with four teams being the main challengers. Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Valencia, with only 2 of those teams being entrenched in history. Real Madrid has won the championship 33 times and Barcelona has won it 24 times. This year the odds are pretty close as they who will win weather Barcelona or Real Madrid.The bookmakers have put Barcelona ahead of the better odds but it can always change. Either of these teams could win. Unfortunately, as both of these teams have such superb players that make it very hard for the smaller teams to be able to compete with them.
Real Madrid took the win last year and has only lost a few players, keeping most of the original lineup. Morata hasn’t been replaced with an equivalent player yet, but ardenio is getting stronger, and Ronaldo in the center, they still have a full boat of world-class players. If Real Madrid keeps improving their players and their team, they could take it again this year. The oddsmakers and football free betting in 2018 have them at second place but they are not to be ruled out. They have a really amazing offensive lineup, though their defense is still strong, it is not the iron wall that it once was. There is also a very small chance that Real Madrid might get a massive leg up if the Spanish political situation changes.
Barcelona is the favorite at the moment with the bookmakers, and the distance between the odds for real Madrid and Barcelona are getting bigger. There are a lot of opinions that their midfield is not that strong, as they lost some strong players, including Neymar, one of the best attackers in the league. The new blood they picked up didn’t seem good replacements and were at a much lower level.. People have had concerns of them being weakened, but this hasn’t been the case. They have been fielding a strong midfield and it has slowly been coming together and they are all playing well and as a team. The managerial changes haven’t seemed to hurt them much either, maybe they can repeat the triple they had before when they made their coaching changes in the past.
If we were to bet, and we always love to, we would choose Barcelona for the win, but we wouldn’t rule out Real Madrid either. Looking at the history of the 2 teams, you can never rule out either one from sudden spurts of inspiration and spectacular play. Real Madrid has the talent, such as Ronaldo, but they have to inspire them and as of recently, they just haven’t seemed to do that. Their stars have played dimly and without heart. Barcelona, on the other hand, has lost some amazing talent, but, seem to be pulling what they have together into an amazing team. We believe the heart of a team is one of the most important factors, the desire to win. Whoever wins though, it will be some world-class football and we look forward to watching every match.
