The tussle between Barcelona and Real Madrid for the 2018-19 La Liga title will continue to remain a keen one but don’t discount out Atletico Madrid, who will be looking to spoil the party again. The latest Spanish La Liga betting tips for this upcoming season along with those for the upcoming match-week can be found below.
The 2018–2019 La Liga season will get underway on 17th August with newly promoted Real Valladolid travelling to Girona for an evening fixture.
Neither team though will be in the shake-up for the title though at the end of the season, which will be dominated, yet again, by the Big Three – Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético Madrid. The question is in which order will they finish?
Barcelona are the defending champions, and, for many, favourites to repeat the feat. Whilst Andrés Iniesta has left for Japan and Paulinho has returned to China for a second time, exciting new talent has arrived at the club in the form of Malcom, the Toulouse winger snatched from the clutches of Roma, young Brazilian midfielder Arthur, and promising French centre-half Clément Lenglet.
The spine of the team is ageing – Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitċ and Gerard Piqué are all the wrong side of thirty, but with the infusion of young talent and Philippe Coutinho ready to assume the mantle of main playmaker, they should just have enough to come out on top again.
Atlético were their closest challengers last time round, and may prove to be so again according to our La Liga betting tips. They too have made a major addition to their squad in the form of Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, whilst Rodri will add even more solidity to their midfield.
Diego Costa will be available for the whole season this time round, whilst the news that World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann has decided to stay with the club will have gladdened the heart of all their supporters. Above all, they have the meanest defence in the league, and will continue to be hard to beat.
Real Madrid are a team in transition. Last season they finished a distant third to Barcelona, with much of their efforts focused on securing a 13th Champions League title. But two of the principal architects of that victory, manager Zinedine Zidane, and star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, have both now gone, and new manager Julen Lopetegui has yet to show his hand in the transfer market.
Left-winger Vinicius Júnior has arrived from Brazil for €45 million, but he is only 18-years old, and it would be unfair to expect too much from him too soon. Real’s fortunes may depend on who arrives at the club in the next few weeks but a sustained challenge could prove to be beyond them this campaign.

Sevilla disappointed last time, finishing only seventh, amidst a season of managerial upheaval, with the decision to fire Eduardo Berizzo after he was diagnosed with cancer, leaving a bad taste in the mouth of many. Now with a new man in charge, Pablo Machin, they will be hoping for a better campaign, and the chance to reclaim a Champions League spot.
Their main rivals for fourth are likely to be Valencia who, after several tumultuous seasons of their own, both on and off the pitch, managed to clinch European football again last season, harnessing youth with experience and quality loan signings.
However, this time round they will have to cope with the demands of the Champions League and it remains to be seen if their squad is deep enough to cope.
Villaréal and Real Betis may be in the hunt for European places and Girona, who finished 10th in their debut season in La Liga cannot be totally discounted, because of the quality young players who they can field on loan, supplied by their parent club, Manchester City.
At the other end of the table, all three of the promoted sides, Huesca, Rayo Vallecano and Valladolid will find it tough, but the likes of Levante and Leganés may also struggle.
