We’re posting regular La Liga predictions throughout the season and have three Saturday selections that will hopefully give us a near-13/2 pay-out this weekend.
Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining competitions in Europe, this division has been providing plenty of thrills and spills so far this term.
Real Madrid to beat Celta Vigo @ 1/5
There will be a carnival atmosphere at the Bernabeu as Zinedine Zidane returns to the dugout and Real can celebrate by beating Celta Vigo. “I’m really raring to return and nobody can take my excitement to coach this team and ensure that they perform better away from me,” declared Zidane. The Whites beat Celta 6-0 here last season and prevailed 4-2 when they met at Balaidos back in November, so let’s join the party and put Real in our La Liga predictions.
Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid to draw @ 2/1
Atletico must pick themselves up from a heart-breaking 3-0 loss at Juventus on Tuesday night, which saw them crash out of the Champions League, but they face another tough test at San Mames this weekend. Los Colchoneros needed a stoppage-time Diego Godin goal to shade a 3-2 thriller against Athletic on home turf back in November and their opponents are unbeaten in nine La Liga matches in Bilbao, including a goalless stalemate against Barcelona last month.
Leganes to beat Girona @ 21/20
Former Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has made Leganes very difficult to beat at Butarque Stadium this term and they are unbeaten here since September. Barcelona feature among six teams to leave empty handed after La Liga fixtures at this venue, while Real Madrid went down 1-0 in a Copa del Rey clash in mid-January. Cristhian Stuani has fired Girona to some good wins this season, but we still rate Leganes as a percentage pick.
