Bilbao look set to continue their unbeaten run as they welcome Valencia to San Mames Stadium. High-flying Granada face struggling Leganes while we’re expecting goals galore in the Madrid derby.
Here are the best bets for Round 7 of La Liga 2019/20.
Athletic Bilbao vs. Valencia – 9/28/19
Along with Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao are yet to lose a La Liga game this season. They have 3 wins and 3 draws to their name so far, and also boast the joint-best defensive record having conceded just 2 goals. On the other hand, Valencia have made an indifferent start to the campaign and currently find themselves down in 13th place with just 1 win from their first 6 matches. Valencia have also conceded the most goals in the league this term (11). You simply can’t ignore the odds for Athletic Bilbao to win this one, especially when you consider the form of the two teams.
Pick: Athletic Bilbao to Win – 2.10
Atletico Madrid vs. Real Madrid - 9/28/19
It’s the first Madrid derby of the season and it’s set to be a thriller. Real are top of the league with 14 points while Atletico sit one place below on 13 points. Form generally goes out the window when these two teams meet and it’s difficult to pick a winner this time around. One thing is certain – there will be goals. The last 5 meetings between these two teams have produced a total of 22 goals (an average of 4.4 goals per game), and with the likes of Karim Benzema and Joao Felix in red-hot form, over 2.5 goals makes sense for this one.
Pick: Over 2.5 Goals – 1.85
Granada vs. Leganes - 9/28/19
Granda have stunned everyone by making an excellent start to life back in La Liga. Following their promotion last season, Granada sit 4th – ahead of champions Barcelona – having lost just 1 of their 6 league games so far. Also, just two teams have scored more league goals than Granada this term. Leganes are one of only two teams yet to pick up a win this season and find themselves rock bottom of La Liga. Considering the contrasting form of the two teams, betting on Granada to win this one is a no-brainer, and you can more than double your money by doing so.
Pick: Granada to Win – 2.20
