We’re into the season’s penultimate round of La Liga fixtures this weekend. Barcelona have already wrapped up the title, but there are some fascinating stories on the bubble below the Catalan giants. Every game kicks off at the same time on Sunday this weekend, so there’s going to be goals flying in all over the place. Ahead of this another round of top action, we’re picking out some of the best anytime scorer bets in La Liga this weekend.
After their cataclysmic failure in the Champions League on Tuesday night, there’s probably only one place to start. Barcelona blew a 3-0 lead from the first leg of their semi-final with Liverpool, failing to score a vital away goal at Anfield.
Lionel Messi reportedly got into an altercation with some of his own supporters leaving England, but his head will be back in the game for the visit of fourth-placed Getafe, who are still on course for Champions League football. Messi has 34 La Liga goals this season, which is 13 more than anyone else. The Argentine is 4/6 in the anytime scorer market, while Luis Suarez – who is level on 21 goals with Karim Benzema – is 11/10 to see the net bulge at the Nou Camp.
Benzema’s Real Madrid are away to Real Sociedad this weekend, in a fixture that’s seen lots of goals in recent seasons. The last 16 meetings between the sides have seen an incredible 70 goals, an average of 4.4 per game. Benzema is 23/20 to add to that tally on Sunday. Sociedad’s top scorer Mikel Oyarzabal has 13 La Liga goals this term, and he’s 39/20 to see the back of the net ripple for the 14th time against Los Blancos.
Sixth-placed Sevilla have a huge match this weekend, as they travel to the capital to face Atletico Madrid. In the battle of Los Rojiblancos, a defeat for the visitors would surely be terminal for their hopes of finishing in the top four and playing in next season’s Champions League. One of the games between these sides last seen saw Atletico win 5-2, with Antoine Griezmann helping himself to a hat-trick.
The Frenchman is 13/10 to score anytime on Sunday, while his compatriot Wissam Ben Yedder is priced at 37/20. The Sevilla forward has 17 La Liga goals this season, two more than Griezmann, and opened the scoring against Atleti at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan earlier this season.
Finally to the Mestalla, where top four-chasing Valencia play host to 10th-placed Alaves. Los Babazorros came from behind to beat Los Che in the first meeting between the sides this season, with Borja getting the equaliser for Abelardo’s side. On loan from Swansea City for the second season running, Borja could use a big goal to show any prospective buyers what he can do.
The big Spaniard is 37/10 to hit the back of the net this weekend, while Valencia’s top scorer Dani Parejo is 28/13. If you’re looking to add some of our selections together into an accumulator, you could try a pretty huge seven-fold this week. It’s 466/1 if you successfully predict Messi, Suarez, Benzema, Oyarzabal, Griezmann, Ben Yedder and Dani Parejo all score on Sunday.
