On Sunday, Real Madrid will travel to La Coruña to start the season in La Liga against Deportivo La Coruña. Los Blancos are in really good form after conquering the European and the Spanish Supercup this summer. They’re confident about continuing with this success and now they are the big favourites to win the title this season.
La Liga starts this Friday and we want to have a look at the bookmakers to see which team is the favourite to win the trophy. After winning the Spanish Supercup against FC Barcelona, Real Madrid are big favourites to win La Liga trophy again. For instance, we can back Los Blancos in bet365 with 8/11 odds.
Zidane’s side is now the big favourite to defend the title got in Málaga in June. The second favourite, obviously, is FC Barcelona with 6/5 odds. Neymar departure and the bad pre-season are not good signs for the new team managed by Ernesto Valverde.
Atlético Madrid are the third favourites to win La Liga trophy with 25/1 odds in bet365. Simeone’s side has Antoine Griezmann or Ferreira Carrasco as his best players to try to fight with the two Spanish giants. Sevilla, with 150/1, are the fourth team with more opportunities to win the trophy.
Real Madrid finally won La Liga last years after fighting with FC Barcelona the whole season. Los Blancos had to win at La Rosaleda in the final game to win again this very important trophy. Only 14 days later, they won the 12th Champions League at Cardiff in one of the best seasons of their history.
Now, the goal is to continue with this cycle of success. Real Madrid signed Theo Hernández, Jesús Vallejo, Marcos Llorente and Dani Ceballos this summer to strengthen the team. Apparently, Los Blancos are the strongest team in Europe so they hope to start La Liga with a win at Riazor and defend their title brilliantly.
