La Liga 2021 / 2022 Season Up-Date

With just over half the season completed and 16 match weeks still ahead, the La Liga title is far from being cut and dry yet. The two teams currently topping the table are Real Madrid and Sevilla with both having lost only one out of their last ten matches and sitting at 50 points and 46 points respectively.  

Real Madrid should have won their last match they drew against Elche, had Benzema, their top goal scorer for the season not missed a penalty. The team showed their class though as the fought back from a 2-0 deficit to secure a draw. They have averaged more than 2 goals per game so far this season and will be a top contender for the title this season without doubt.

The challengers:

  • Sevilla have showed consistent form this season and while they do not have even close to top goals scored for the season (currently only 34 compared to 41 and 36 goals for the 3rd & fourth placed Real Betis and Atletico Madrid), it is their defence strategy that has help them secure their current 2nd position on the log. Sevilla have seen the football only cross their goal line 16 times this season would be the best challenger for the season if they can maintain this.
  • Real Betis lying in 3rd place have won 4 out of their last 6 matches and in their last 38 matches have scored 79 goals, an average of 2.08 goals per game.
  • Atletico Madrid, after a loss in four consecutive games have finally found their form with two wins out of their last 3 games including a convincing 3-2 win against Valencia. If they can shore up their defence they could still perhaps challenge for a top 2 position this season.
