La Liga BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals betting

It's a massive week across the board in La Liga with battles for a top four spot, the top six and down at the bottom all taking centre stage in these must-not-lose battles as we approach the final 10 games of the season. Let's look at more La Liga BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals betting.

La Liga BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals betting – games in focus

Athletic Club vs Barcelona – Athletic Club continue to stun Spain

What a sensational win during the week for Athletic Club. The Bilbao side eased to all three points by defeating Atletico Madrid 3-0 to record their 14th win of the league season and move within just three points of the 2020/21 champions.

It's put their quest for a spot in the Champions League right on track, and if they can get a win over Barcelona, not only will they be to within five of the champions, they could even move into fourth, should Atletico lose to Real Betis. Regardless of this outcome, no team in Spain wants to go to San Mames right now.

In contrast to the usual outlook in a league season, Athletic Club have been scoring for fun. They've now bagged 46 times, and despite Barcelona's record-breaking 20 goals let in last season seeing them win the title, they have conceded 34 so far. With this in mind, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals comes in at 10/11 (1.91).

Valencia vs Real Madrid – Another giants step towards the title for Los Blancos

Although Real Madrid are expected defeat Valencia, they have proved in recent weeks that keeping a clean sheet hasn't been the easiest thing. Indeed, they did do so against Getafe, Sevilla and Girona in February, but in 2024,  they also conceded two against the winless Almeria, one against Rayo Vallecano, one against Las Palmas, one in the El Clasico, one against Arandina of the Segunda Federación – Group 1, and a total of eight across three games against Atletico.

The previous game between these two also saw Valencia get one in Madrid in a 5-1 battering, and Valencia are also still eyeing up a spot in the top six after a terrible start to the season with them now only six behind Real Betis after stunning Bilbao, beating Almeria and drawing with Sevilla in the past five games.

Odds for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is at 11/8 (2.38).

Sevilla vs Real Sociedad – 2nd takes on 5th

In previous seasons, this would have been a battle for a spot in the top five. Now, however, Real Sociedad are in seventh and behind fourth place by 12 points – despite sitting in the knockout rounds of the Champions League – while Sevilla are all the way down in 15th and only above the bottom three by six points.

Sevilla have only managed to win five games this season, but they have gone on a decent unbeaten run in recent times. A loss to Real halted this, but the club have beaten Atletico Madrid at home, drawn with Osasuna and Valencia and also managed to beat Vallecano since the end of January.

Both teams to score in this game and over 2.5 goals comes in at 2/1 (3.0).
