The Spanish Primera Division round will begin with Friday’s game between Girona and Deportivo and the highly ranked White and Reds are the best bet on the entire program.
Seventh on the Spanish Primera Division ladder is nosebleed territory for Girona, which is playing its first season in Spain’s top flight since being founded in 1930. Girona is 7-2-4 in it’s 13 Spanish Primera Division home matches and that record includes an unforgettable 2-1 victory over Real Madrid. Girona deserves to be seventh on the Spanish Primera Division ladder because the White and Reds have taken care of business against most of the teams below them, posting 9-5-3 numbers versus the sides ranked eight or lower, including winning 2-1 at Deportivo in October.
Deportivo is in real danger of losing its Spanish Primera Division status for the third time in eight terms and its survival fight is not helped by one ban and many injuries for its trip to Girona. Maksym Koval is suspended and the Deportivo treatment room resembles an emergency ward so one is keen to oppose Girona’s guest. According to one’s Spanish Primera Division collateral form analysis, Girona boasts a 15-0-4 advantage over Deportivo and there is depth to the lead of the White and Reds, including the head-to-head that one mentioned at the end of the previous paragraph. The home side represents the value at -154 with Betway.
There are two Spanish Primera Division teams which start with the letter G and one thinks that Getafe is almost as attractive as Girona on the 28th round’s betting coupon.
Saturday’s third Spanish Primera Division game features Getafe and Levante and, while the Deep Blues will line up without Loic Remy due to his ban, their injuries and suspensions are not as great as those of the Frogs.
Getafe led Levante for four minutes in their 1-1 Spanish Primera Division draw five months ago so that head-to-head favours the Deep Blues and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, they enjoy a 13-1-5 edge over the Frogs, including progressive counts of 2-0-0 and 11-0-3. Levante has not won a Spanish Primera Division match since November when it scored two late goals to record a 2-0 away victory over fellow relegation candidate Las Palmas – the Frogs are 0-6-9 in their last 15 top-flight games. Over the same period, Getafe is a much more respectable 5-5-5, and should be backed at odds of -139 with 888Sport to come away with the points.
It was difficult to land on one’s third and final Spanish Primera Division pick but, in what ended up being a toss-up between Atletico Madrid to beat Celta and Valencia not to lose at Sevilla, one decided to nominate the Mattressmen at -227 with Betway.
Atletico Madrid will back up at home to Celta in the Spanish Primera Division three days after welcoming Lokomotiv Moskva in the UEFA Europa League round of 16. Atletico holds a big 13-3-3 Spanish Primera Division collateral form lead over Celta, including a 1-0 road success in October’s reverse fixture that Kevin Gameiro earned through his first-half goal. Only Barcelona and Espanyol have beaten Atletico in Spanish Primera Division action this season, whereas Celta has not got the better of any of the league’s top six sides.
