Struggling Getafe are set for a tough test as they visit Sociedad, while Atletico Madrid look to build on their impressive defensive record at Valladolid. High-scoring Villarreal travel to Osasuna and will surely add to their goal tally.
Here are the best bets for Round 8 of the 2019/20 La Liga season.
Osasuna vs. Villarreal – 10/5/19
Osasuna have only lost 1 of their 7 league games this season but have also only picked up 1 win after drawing 5 of their matches. Villarreal have also been very inconsistent. They are the top scorers in La Liga so far (18) but their defense has also been leaking goals (11). It’s difficult to pick a winner from these two teams but there is likely to be plenty of goals. I’m predicting that both teams will get on the scoresheet and that we will see at least 3 goals.
Pick: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals – 2.35
Real Valladolid vs. Atletico Madrid - 10/6/19
Only Athletic Bilbao (3) have conceded fewer goals then Atletico Madrid (4) in La Liga this season. Atletico are renowned for having arguably the tightest defense in the division but they have struggled to score goals this term. Diego Simione’s side is averaging 1 goal per game so far, and while they may not win this match, I don’t expect them to concede. Valladolid have also found goals hard to come by this season, so I think we’re in for a very low scoring encounter on Saturday. A goalless draw or an away win to nil is looking likely.
Pick: Atletico Madrid to Keep a Clean Sheet – 2.00
Real Sociedad vs. Getafe – 10/6/19
Both these teams have been scoring goals this season. Sociedad are up in 5th having won 4 of their 7 games so far, while Getafe find themselves down in 16th with just 1 win to their name. Getafe have scored 10 league goals but have conceded 11. On the other hand, Sociedad have netted 12 times and conceded 7. Taking everything into account, both teams are likely to score in this match, but the home side should have enough to win. Sociedad to win is only 1.83, so add both teams to score to your bet to significantly enhance the odds.
Pick: Real Sociedad to Win and Both Teams to Score – 4.63
