The first round from La Liga in 2022 finished on Monday 3, with some teams changing positions on the top of the standing. See a resume in the past match and the favorites for the following challenges below:
Playing at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, Real Madrid had their first loss of the year and only the second on the season. With Vini Jr., Camavinga, and Jovic out of the game, Real had difficulty and fell for Getafe on Sunday 2nd by 1 – 0.
Enes Unal scored in the match beginning for the home team, and despite a lot of shots from the rival, Getafe kept the scores and opened two points from the 18th place Alavés.
Real will return to play for La Liga on Saturday 8th, against Valencia at Santiago Bernabeu, and hope the strikers are on a good day, showing the greatest offense, with 41 goals. On Bovada, Real Madrid is the favorite, with -260 odds.
The last team to play had the best week due to the rivals. Sevilla faced Cádiz, which is only the 19th-placed from the league, on Monday 3 and defeated by 1 – 0. Lucas Ocampos scored the single goal of the match.
As a result, Sevilla reduced the difference to Real, which led the league with 46 points. But as Sevilla has one few games, the gap can be reduced for only two points if they win. Another good point is that Bétis lose their challenge. The best defense from the league can be a differential with only 13 goals against in 19 opportunities.
Like we said ahead, Bétis fell for Celta de Vigo at home, by 2 – 0. Iago Aspas scored twice for the victory. This loss was the second straight for Bétis, which saw the other teams getting closer.
Only two points separate them from the fifth-placed. On Saturday, Bétis will play at home against Rayo Vallecano. Rayo is the favorite and has +150 odds for being the winner.
Alético de Madrid
Atlético broke a five-loss streak and finally came back to win, defeating Rayo by 2 – 0, with Angel Correa scoring twice on Sunday 2. With the win, Atlético overcame the rival on the standing and now has 32 points, while the opponent stayed with 30 and lost two positions.
Another team to celebrate the last result, Luuk de Jong scored in the first half, and Barcelona beat Mallorca the previous weekend. The team still needs to have a regularity for thinking at the top.
With the win, Barcelona overcomes two teams, and they are only two points behind Bétis, with 33 points. Barcelona will face Granada on Friday, and Barcelona is the favorite for the win, with -145 odds.
