This Spanish league is worth looking at this weekend for anyone interested in the Over 2.5 and Under 2.5 goals market. So let’s take a look at the best prospects from La Liga.
Over 2.5 goals:
David Moyes will lead his new Real Sociedad team out at the Anoeta Stadium for the first time this weekend. La Real have managed to score a league average of 1.5 goals per home game this season and have conceded the same making a combined total of 3 goals per home game. In total, 66.7% of their games have finished with over 2.5 goals. Their opponents this weekend are Elche who will make the journey to San Sebastian from Valencia. Fran Escribas team have scored an average of 1.2 goals away from home this season while conceding an average of 2.5. In total, 83.3% of their away fixtures have produced more than 2.5 goals.
The second game with a high chance of over 2.5 goals will take place in Galicia where Celta de Vigo play host to SD Eibar from the Basque Country. Eduardo Berizzo’s team have a decent strike rate at home with an average of 1.8 goals per game. In total, 83.3% of their matches at Balaídos have finished with over 2.5 goals. Eibar have scored an average of 1.2 goals per away game and 66.7% of those games have ended with over 2.5 goals.
Under 2.5 goals:
Getafe are the league’s second poorest scorers at home with an average scoring ration of just 0.5 goals per game. As a result, 83.3% of their home games have finished with fewer than 2.5 goals. Their opponents this weekend will be Athletic Club of Bilbao who just happen to be the lowest scorers away from home in the league with a poor record of just 0.3 goals per game. As a result, 66.7% of their games on the road have ended with under 2.5 goals.
The Andalucian derby between Sevilla and Granada also stands out in the under 2.5 goal category. Sevilla have been fairly prolific at home with decent average of 1.8 goals scored per home game. However, they have also been quite mean in defence and have only let in 0.7 goals per game. Their opponents from across the region have only managed an average of 0.7 goals per away game this term and 66.7% of their away games have fallen into sub-2.5 goal territory.
Another Andalucian team, Cordoba, will be in action at home to Villarreal. Cordoba have struggled for goals at the Nuevo Arcángel this season and have a lowly return of 0.7 goals per game to show for it. Villarreal have managed to bag an average of 1.3 goals on the road while restricting their opponent to just 0.8. In total, 66.7% of home games involving Cordoba and away games featuring Villarreal have ended with under 2.5 goals.
