Getafe vs Real Madrid

Kick Off: 01/02/2022 09:00



Getafe currently have achieved 3W-6D-9L from 18 games with 15 points, which makes them rank 16th in the standings, equal to the 18th-placed Alaves. The team have lost only one of the last eight matches of the league and have remained unbeaten in the past five games, including a 1-0 victory over Osasuna in the last game before the winter break in the Spanish top league.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid defeated Athletic Bilbao 2-1 last time out, accumulating 46 points in the first 19 games of La Liga in the 2021-22 season. Carlo Ancelotti's side lead second-placed Sevilla by 8 points, fifth-placed Atletico Madrid by 17 points, and seventh-placed Barcelona by 18 points, which shows their dominance this season. The team have won eight of the past nine league matches and have remained unbeaten in Spain's top matches since early October.



Real Madrid will win their 15th La Liga victory of the season this weekend. Although Getafe's performance has improved in recent weeks, the home team will face Ancelotti's team at home.

Mallorca vs FC Barcelona

Kick Off: 01/02/2022 16:00



Mallorca lost 4-1 away to Granada last time out. The team have achieved 4W-8D-6L from 20 league games with 20 points, which makes them 15th in the table - 5 points higher than the relegation zone. Luis Garcia's side have actually made draws in the last four home games against Sevilla, Elche, Getafe and Celta Vigo - remaining unbeaten at home since the end of September. 

FC Barcelona

Barcelona entered the winter break after a 1-1 draw with second-placed Sevilla. The Catalan giants have now only lost one of their past eight league games. Their positive performance puts them seventh in the standings - with 28 points in their opening 18 games - two points away from the fourth-placed Vallecano. The team remain unbeaten in the last four league games away from home.



Barcelona will miss many important players this weekend. We expect this to be a very close game, but we support the visiting team to get point on the board.



1X2 Pick: X2

Final Results: 0-1, 1-1

Cadiz vs Sevilla

Kick Off: 01/03/2022 16:15



Cadiz had a goalless draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabéu before the winter break. They have not won the league since the beginning of November. The team currently rank 19th  and 1 point behind Elche. Cadiz's home record in La Liga this season is also the worst for only taking 5 points in nine games and failed to win in the process.


Julen Lopetegui's side currently rank second in the standings - 8 points behind Real Madrid. They have achieved 11W-5D-2L in their 18 league games, conceding only 13 goals in the process, which is the best defensive record in the division. Los Nervionenses have collected 10 points in the last four league games, beating Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid, and then shared points with Barcelona before the winter break.



Both teams will miss some key players due to injury, which may be a very tricky game for Sevilla, but Cadiz's home performance this season has been disappointing. We support the visiting team to get a very important three points.



1X2 Pick: 2

Total: Over 2 goals

Elche v Granada: 20 points on a penalty taken at 3.625 with Uni

Not doing these bets as much, having decided that the ref stats are relatively random in suggesting ref's inclined to award spot kicks. Sometimes, though, the stats are eye catching enough to nudge my elbow. Cordero has awarded 35 in 27 of his 66 La Liga games, giving simple odds of less than 6/4. By season (earliest first) his numbers are:

8 in 7 out of 18 games

14 in 10 out of 20 games

6 in 6 out of 18 games

7 in 4 out of 10 games

The 9/4 next best was fairly tempting but the bigger price feels generous to me.
