La Liga betting tips (2nd matchday)
LaLiga betting tips – After the start of the Spanish La Liga season last weekend without the top four of the previous season, which were required in the finals of the Champions League and Europa League in August, the top quartet will take effect on matchday two at least Real Madrid into the action. Los Blancos, who of course want to defend their title won with a strong final spurt and want to leave FC Barcelona behind them again, have a tricky task to solve at Real Sociedad San Sebastian.
That would also apply to FC Barcelona, whose appearance at Athletic Bilbao has already been postponed to January 6th. There are still no dates for the pairings Levante UD – Atletico Madrid and Sevilla FC – Elche FC, but they will be played with a delay.
Nevertheless, we picked three matches on the second matchday, which we will go into a little more closely below.
Villarreal FC vs SD Eibar Free Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, September 19, 2020
With Francis Coquelin, Pervis Estupiñán, Takefusa Kubo, and Dani Parejo, Villarreal CF has landed some promising newcomers, which have to grow together with the existing tribe. Because the start was disappointing from the perspective of the yellow submarine with a 1-1 draw at home against SD Huesca. Villarreal had to be happy that Gerard Moreno at least managed to equalize with a penalty. To top fifth place last season, which should not be easy due to the strong competition, Villarreal must improve.
SD Eibar, for whom relegation is once again the top priority after 14th place last season, has meanwhile opened the new season with a 0-0 win against Celta Vigo. This week, the Japanese Yoshinori Muto on loan from Newcastle United came again for the offensive, which still had plenty of room for improvement at the start. Of course, this was already the case in 2019/20 with only 39 goals in 38 games.
Villarreal can now play again in their stadium and will do everything in their power to keep the three points this time. Due to the individual quality in the team of trainer Unai Emery, we also believe that this will succeed.

Celta Vigo vs Valencia CF Free Betting Tips
Date: Saturday, September 19, 2020
Despite a prominent team at least in parts with individual talent such as Iago Aspas, Brais Mendez, or Fran Beltran, Celta Vigo only escaped relegation last season by a very thin, exactly one point. You shouldn’t tremble again for a similar length of time. Rather, the team of coach Oscar Garcia is aiming for a significant increase, although the very large reinforcements have not yet occurred. The start was rather mixed with a goalless draw at SD Eibar, but at least without defeat.
Valencia CF, which is already experiencing a lot of unrest, meanwhile decided the city derby against UD Levante 4-2 at the start. Despite the painful departures of Rodrigo Moreno, Ferran Torres, and Dani Parejo, who have so far not been adequately replaced, to coach Javi Gracia’s displeasure, Valencia appears to be able to play a good role this season if the first impression is confirmed. Defensive carelessness like against Levante in the first minute should not become the rule.
It remains to be seen where both teams will be sorted. Valencia seems better positioned overall, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be enough to win in Vigo.

Real Sociedad vs Real Madrid Soccer Betting Tips
Date: Sunday, 09/20/2020
Due to the short break, Real Madrid did not play a test match, but too many automatisms should not have been lost since the Champions League out in August. Also not because the squad has hardly changed. Only a few returnees are new, of whom Martin Ödegaard, who was recently awarded to San Sebastian, probably has the best chance of reasonably regular deployment times.
Where is Real coach Zidane’s path going?
Of course, it cannot be ruled out that something will happen in terms of transfers in the coming weeks, although a start transfer is not in sight. The personnel situation is not optimal at the moment, but due to some ailing and injured professionals. Among others, Isco, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard will be absent from the start or not be at 100 percent.
Real Madrid is not alone with such concerns. San Sebastian had to do without seven players at the start, including regulars and potential top performers such as Joseba Zaldua, Asier Illarramendi, David Silva, and Willian Jose. National player Mikel Oyarzabal, like Silva and Willian Jose, previously tested positive for Corona, was only able to come on late in the 1: 1 at Real Valladolid, which was acceptable given these failures. Now the team of coach Imanol Alguacil, who slipped out of the Champions League ranks and into sixth place in the final spurt of last season, is hoping for better personnel conditions and counters against the royal team from Madrid.
Because it is a cold start for Real Madrid, a forecast is difficult. However, we assume that coach Zinedine Zidane’s team will be as strong as after the restart in June and July. Then a further weakened San Sebastian should go away empty-handed.
