The championship in Spain has not begun yet, but predictions for ante post betting are already in force. So, if you want to bet on who will be the new champion in LA Liga you can do it safely. Hardly have you wanted to bet some euro for another team than Barcelona or Real Madrid so this allows us to focus entirely on the two largest teams in Spain and the world football.
So who will be the new champion of Spain? Barcelona or Real Madrid? The bookies give priority to Real, offering odds for them of 1.8. Barcelona’s chances of winning the league are rated at 2.2.
Personally, I would bet on Real Madrid. The reasons are several. First and foremost the condition of Barcelona and how the club will be affected by the change of the coach. Now head of Barcelona is the former assistant of Pep Guardiola – Tito Vilanova. The leaving of such a good coach like Guardiola can’t be without huge influence on the players and the whole team. However, the heads of Barca made their maximum to make the change as painless as possible and seemed to guess the right rhythm as they put the former assistant as a head coach.
On the other hand everybody in Real feels that now is the time to deal with Barcelona and to consolidate Real’s role as a leading team not only in Spain but also in Europe. Mourinho was left to work in peace and is sufficiently active in the transfer market. Currently, he clears his team of players who will not be used through the season. Players like Sahin and Kaka are free to go which will open space for new additions.
The only thing that slightly bothers me is the fact that just before the era of Guardiola the estimates were exactly the same. It was said that Barcelona will not be able to recover quickly from the change of the coach and Real Madrid are hungry for success and so on. Ultimately, Barcelona became the convincing champion.
Betting on something that will become clear after more than 10 months is not a joke. Too many factors can be influential – injuries, penalties, games in European competitions, but anyway Real’s victory in Spain is sufficiently predictable. So a few pounds for their victory is my bet.
