La Liga Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2020-21
The last season of La Liga was not a bed of roses for many Spanish teams and to add fuel to the fire the pandemic took a toll on Spain and its people. But it was all going good for one team – Real Madrid, who claimed their 34th La Liga title after having a comfortable lead of 5 points over Barcelona by the end of the last season.
It was the Los Blancos’ second title since 2012 and they successfully denied Barcelona a hat-trick of titles as they made their comeback. With Quique Setien giving a tough time for the Messi-led Barcelona, this year has seen some essential changes in the Blaugranes’ side inclusive of a new manager.
And the La Liga 2020-21 will surely be a pleasure to watch for the fans around the world as the Spanish League will have several options available to live stream the games.
La Liga 2020-21 Season
As rumors continue to haunt Barcelona fans regarding Leo Messi’s exit, the Argentine has agreed to stay with the club. Since the last season didn’t do them well, the Blaugranes will take charge this time under Ronald Koeman and their star studded captain – Lionel Messi. And the mightiest clash of La Liga – El Clasico, will set the bars high once again as Real Madrid look forward to yet another title.
Many Spanish clubs played well last year, but the likes of Leganes, Mallorca and Espanyol suffered relegation. Whilst Cadiz, Elche and Huesca have earned their promotion to the La Liga 2020-21 and they will make their appearance in the Spanish top flight football count.
With Real Madrid and Barcelona on top, the last season brought the best out of teams like Atletico Madrid who finished 3rd under Diego Simeone. Tied with the same points were Sevilla, who played extraordinary football in the final stages of the competition.
Anyways, with a new campaign bringing in a lot of new talents anything can change and most significant of all, the La Liga might even crown a new champion by the end of the 2020-21 season.

Knee deep in an economic crisis amid the pandemic with loads of debt, Barcelona tries to kick it all off like its talisman Lionel Messi. Real Madrid stand in their way to the title, routed from the Champions League, the Vikings’ game against Sevilla will prove decisive in case the Catalans finish Atleti at Camp Nou. La Real and Villarreal are keeping Betis away from the Europa League spots. This week easily qualifies as the most crucial of the current season.
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid
A rival’s rival is a friend, well in this case, not. Atletico Madrid make a trip to Camp Nou to lock horns with Barcelona this Saturday. Defeating the Catalans will ensure a Laliga title while falling will take Atletico out of the title equation. Interestingly, if Real Madrid won against Sevilla and Atleti lost, Barcelona will be out of the title contention owing to the El Clasico 2-1 loss. A loss to Granada in late April was the thing that led to Barcelona’s slip up from the top. Lionel Messi and Griezmann have been clinical lately. Adapting to a back three and giving the centre forward role to Dembele and the centre-back position to Di Jong was pure class from Ronald Koeman.
Diego Simeone is to be celebrated for creating the best defence in Laliga. His side has just allowed 22 goals so far, while Real Madrid have allowed just 24 it is solely due to their experience and strength in the midfield. In Atleti, however, things are different. Simeone built the club from mid-table meddlers to title contenders, it took him years to perfect this art. Luiz Suarez is a clever signing, the former Barca forward will have to breach past Pique and Busquets. Jordi Alba and Sergio Dest can be stopped by a 4-4-2, Simeone should give Joao Felix more minutes. Renand Lodi undergoes muscle issues while Gimenez might return on Saturday. In Camp Nou, Braithwaite, Coutinho and Fati are on the treatment table. Simeone’s men will try to curb the Catalans for a draw but Barcelona will find a way to victory.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla
The fate of the three clubs hang on this game’s outcome, Real Madrid’s is the default but the Catalans and Atletico Madrid will be eagerly watching too. Real Madrid welcome Sevilla to Alfredo di Stefano Stadium on Matchday 35 of the Spanish campaign. Champions League elimination left a scar in the Vikings’ heart, Zinadine Zidane’s gamble faltered, ageing midfield couldn’t stand the pacy Blues and Eden Hazard added fuel to the fire with his damning laugh. Zidane has lost part of the dressing room, Karim Benzema didn’t succeed in his attempt of claiming the Champions League from the front. Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric can transform to a different level, in La Liga, at Madrid. An own goal from Sevilla’s keeper Bono paved the way for an edgy victory to Real Madrid 0-1. But then, a depleted squad struggled to handle Julen Lopetegui’s men. Now that Sergio Ramos and Valverde are back, Real Madrid will attack with all they have got.
At 70 points, Sevilla are sitting fourth and have clinched the Champions League spot. Athletic Bilbao snapped their winning streak earlier this week 0-1. However, this time they can do more with a win. En Nesyri excels in the final third, Ivan Rakitic takes care of the number 10 role. Yet, Julen Lopetegui doesn’t have the resources on par with the Galacticos. If anything does make sense in Madrid, it is that the Sevillistas don’t have the amenities to spoil Real Madrid’s party.
Villarreal vs Celta Vigo
Villarreal play host to Celta Vigo at Estadio de la Ceramica on Sunday. Clinging to the sixth spot, Villarreal can dream again of a Europa League. Sharing the spoils with Arsenal 0-0 in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final lands them in a final with Manchester United. The Yellow Submarine managed to pull off a victory despite not being a great form. Unai Emery proved to his former and current employers in two games. Gerard Moreno is splendid, scoring 20 goals of the 29 games he played. Iborra and Foyth are out due to injuries, Chukwueze is doubtful. Featuring a long list of injuries on the other end is Celta Vigo. Going through a roller coaster of a season, Celta Vigo have managed to hold the 10th position in the league. Their defence is one of the worst in that tier, next to Granada, allowing 51 goals while pocketing just 46. The hosts are the clear favourites to reign a victor in this Sunday affair.
