La Liga Weekly Predictions
With just 3 more Matchdays to go, Real Madrid look solid from the top as they keep maintaining their distance from Barcelona, who trail them closely. As Los Blancos are nearing the Spanish title, criticisms regarding poor refereeing and VAR issues have increased over the past week. Lionel Messi hopes to put Barcelona in a better place before the end of this season, as the club has struggled so much in terms of decision making. Although many Spanish clubs have fought hard and well to make it so far, Matchday 35 offers most of them another opportunity to continue with what they do best.
Celta Vigo VS Atletico Madrid
Despite taking an early lead against Real Betis, Celta Vigo eventually shared the spoils with the hosts on Matchday 34. With just 6 points clear of the relegation zone, they would be happy with one point from their match against Atletico Madrid. On the other hand, Atletico have cemented their 3rd position in the table since Diego Simeone’s men have been producing splendid displays in La Liga ever since the restart. Considering Atletico Madrid’s form after the coronavirus break, an away win should be expected.
Getafe VS Villarreal
Getafe and Villarreal take on each other in a highly anticipated game of Matchday 35 at Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Getafe are 4 points behind the Champions League berth and they are eager to return to winning ways in La Liga. Villarreal aim to bounce back from a heavy loss 4-1 to Barcelona and they are surely capable of matching Getafe, who have been impressive in La Liga of late. The two teams seem to be evenly matched, but the hosts are capable of winning this if they manage to avoid a draw.
Barcelona VS Espanyol
At Camp Nou, Barcelona and Espanyol face off against each other in the Catalan derby on Matchday 35. With Barca facing another must-win situation, they are likely to prove their worth just like in their win 1-4 over Villarreal. Espanyol suffered yet another disappointing loss against Leganes, who ruined their survival hopes and Jonathan Calleri misses this game through suspension. And the hosts are sure to win this fixture and battle it out with Real Madrid for the top position in the La Liga table.
Athletic Bilbao VS Sevilla
Another interesting game from Matchday 35 will be hosted at Estadio San Mames, where Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla will fight for a place in European competitions. Athletic Bilbao aim to represent Spain in the Europa League, whereas Sevilla eye for a spot in the Champions League. Despite producing a fine display against Real Madrid, they suffered an unlucky loss and dropped to the 8th position. As for Julen Lopetegui’s men, they did well to beat Leganes 3-0 in their last away game and considering their attacking potential, this could be a tight game but the hosts are favorites.
Real Sociedad VS Granada
On Matchday 35, Real Sociedad will look to retain their spot in top 7 when they host Granada at an empty Reale Seguros Stadium. Besides their ups and downs after the coronavirus break, a win against Granada will move them one step closer to a place in the Europa League. Granada showed character in a draw 2-2 with Valencia, scoring a late equalizer to save one point as they target European competitions as well. But Real Sociedad are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they feel more than confident about his game.
Real Madrid VS Alaves
After yet another win from Sergio Ramos’ goal from the penalty spot, Real Madrid will look to hold on top position when they face Alaves on Matchday 35. Currently on the right track to regain La Liga title, but Zinedine Zidane must warn his men against complacency with Carvajal and Ramos sidelined through suspension. Alaves aim to bounce back from a loss 1-0 to Real Valladolid and they are on a 5 game losing run. In their last meeting, Real Madrid defeated Alaves 3-0 and a similar result is expected out of this game.
