After Barcelona won last weekend’s top-of-the-table clash against Atletico Madrid, the Catalan club are all set to retain their La Liga crown with an 11-point lead and just seven games to go. There’s no let-up in the action though, so we’re taking a look at the best anytime goalscorer bets in La Liga this weekend.
Atletico are back in action at home to Celta Vigo on Saturday, and Diego Simeone’s side will be without Diego Costa after his red card against Barca. While Antoine Griezmann is close to evens at 11/10 in the anytime scorer market, his fellow forward Alvaro Morata has a slightly better price of 6/4. The Spain international has four goals in nine appearances for Atelti, while Celta’s Iago Aspas could also be tempting at 18/5 as he looks to add to his tally of 15 goals for the season.
Barcelona are also in action on Saturday, just a few days after their Champions League clash with Manchester United. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have scored more La Liga goals this season together than every other team in the division apart from Real Madrid. Those two are 7/10 and 20/21 respectively to score this weekend. If you’re after someone who isn’t odds-on, Philippe Coutinho could be worth a look at 13/5 as he aims to salvage his Nou Camp career.
Sevilla have a big game at home to Real Betis on Saturday night, as they look to overhaul Getafe and claim a Champions League place. Wissam Ben Yedder has 16 La Liga goals so far this term, and is 49/50 to add to his haul this weekend. Karim Benzema has one more than that for Real Madrid, and the Frenchman’s in good form at the moment. He has six goals in his last five games, and has scored more than double any of his team mates have managed this season. He’s 21/20 to bag against Leganes on Monday night.
Back to Sunday, and Valencia’s home game against Levante. Los Che are still in the hunt for the top four, while the away team are struggling down in 15th, just three points above the La Liga relegation zone. Midfielder Dani Parejo is still Valencia’s top scorer, and bagged a vital goal in their 1-0 win at Sevilla a couple of weeks ago. He is 23/10 to get his name on the scoresheet this weekend.
If you like placing accumulator bets on La Liga action, why not combine some of our picks here for a 110/1 five-fold? That’s the price you can get if you back Morata, Coutinho, Ben Yedder, Benzema and Parejo all to score over the weekend.
