As the La Liga table takes shape Savage searches for Spanish football betting tips with Atletico hosting an out-of-sorts Sevilla in the pick of the fixtures.
Real Madrid v Getafe
Sat 02 Sep 15:15
Madrid left it late to break the deadlock against Celta last time out. Jude Bellingham had been quiet for most of the game but came up with a vital header to continue the leaders’ flawless start. Of concern to Los Blancos is yet another high-profile injury to add to the list. Vini Jr. could miss a few weeks at least and that will definitely stretch Ancelotti’s squad. The visitors left it just as late to claim the win against Alavés. An 84th minute Borja Mayoral penalty sealed the three points for the Madrid side. Getafe will likely look to stymie Real’s impressive strike force with a back 5 that will sit deep for 90 minutes and hope to grind out a draw. However, the hosts are more than accustomed to having to break sides down and may need a little more Bellingham magic in this one too.
Atlético Madrid v Sevilla
Sun 03 Sep 17:30
Matchday 3 saved the best for last as Atleti demolished their local rivals Rayo 0-7 in Vallecas on Monday night. Against Betis in the previous round, Madrid looked very lacklustre and only managed 1 shot on target. However, they are sitting a lot prettier now as the best of the chasing pack and have the most goals scored of any team. Sevilla on the other hand could not really have had a worse start to the season. 4 losses on the bounce including the Super Cup Final and 9 goals conceded. It is not hard to see why they are rooted to the bottom of the table. Simeone will know that this Sevilla side will wake up eventually and he will likely not have things as easy as they did last week. A home win should still be on the cards to compound Los Nervionenses poor start.
Osasuna v Barcelona
Sun 03 Sep 20:00
Barcelona certainly laid on quite a spectacle when they made the trip to Villarreal last weekend. A 7 goal thriller was capped off with Lewandowski bagging his first goal to secure the W for the Champions. What could have been a very poor start to the season has been turned around given late goals in their last two outings. Nestled comfortably in the confines of the Top 4 they will look to keep pace with both Madrid sides and stay within touching distance. The hosts are coming to terms with some early midweek fixtures in the Europa Conference League against Club Brugge that may leave them a bit heavy-legged going into this one. Osasuna have not won any of the last 6 at home to their visitors (D3 L3) and after a rocky start to the season, they may struggle again here.
