GR88.com Bookmakers Favour Barcelona in La Liga Title Decider
Thursday 15th May 2014
15 May 2014, London, UK (Press Release) -- The fight for the La Liga title is going right to the wire, with Barcelona and Atlético Madrid facing an effective shoot-out to be named champions this weekend.
Last season's champions Barcelona are three points behind Atléti, but if they beat their opponents at Camp Nou then they will win the title on the strength of their superior head-to-head record. However any other result will see Diego Simeone's side win the league for the first time since 1996. Tata Martino's Barça are 1.78 with GR88.com to get that crucial home win, with the visitors 4.20 outsiders and the draw available at 3.55 (all odds are subject to change).
Atlético Madrid are still on course for a historic La Liga and Champions League double, and after Saturday's title clash they will begin preparing for their European final against fierce rivals Real Madrid in Lisbon on May 24th. However before they look to stop Real Madrid sealing La Decima - a 10th European Cup or Champions League win - they will be focused on securing a 10th domestic title of their own.
"Atlético know this is a huge opportunity, and with key players like Diego Costa potentially leaving in the summer this may be their best chance of winning La Liga for some time," Antony Jordan, GR88.com blogger, said.
"Atléti only need a draw to break up the Real Madrid-Barcelona duopoly in Spain, but Barça have won 16 of their 18 home games and their experience could tell this weekend."
Saturday afternoon also sees a huge game in England, with Arsenal and Hull facing off in the FA Cup Final at Wembley. The London club are 1.24 favourites to lift the trophy, while Hull can be backed at 4.00 to win the competition for the first time in their history.
