Supporters of the top flight division in Spanish football would argue that theirs’ is the best league in the world. Some of the biggest players in the game are showcasing their skills in La Liga and, in Real Madrid and Barcelona, we have two of the most successful clubs around.
Knowing Your History
Real are the record holders in terms of European Cup and Champions League titles and, along with Barca, they have dominated La Liga and Spanish domestic honours. It isn’t just about two teams, however, and across the season, the division produces some classic encounters.
Unibet customers who want to immerse themselves in La Liga can take advantage of an active sportsbook with hundreds of markets available. Whether you place a wager or not, Unibet TV is another bonus feature with live streaming on hand to capture some of the best that European football has to offer.
La Liga was originally formed in 1929 so it is starting to close in on its centenary year. In that time, Real Madrid and Barcelona have dominated the landscape with the two clubs winning no fewer than 60 of the first 89 available titles.
The present format sees 20 teams take part in the division and, at the end of the season, the top four earn automatic qualification into the Champions League. Those sides placed in fifth and sixth will be heading to the Europa League Group Stages while the team finishing seventh will be placed in the Europa League’s second qualifying round.
There is, therefore, plenty to play for towards the top of the table while, at the bottom, the three worst performing sides drop down to the Segunda Division. Critical games take place across the campaign and Unibet TV will be live streaming the best of the La Liga action to your device.
The Big Clash
The match between Real Madrid and Barcelona is referred to as El Clasico and it’s simply one of the biggest games in world football. Often, the two fixtures in the regular La Liga season can prove to be a title decider when the table settles at the end of the campaign so there is plenty riding on the result.
Real and Barca can attract the best players in the game and, over the years, we have seen some true superstars gracing El Clasico. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Figo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gareth Bale, Carles Puyol, Xavi, Zinedine Zidane and Luka Modric are among many major talents that have made this the biggest club game in the world.
To make sure that you don’t miss out on these titanic battles, tune in to Unibet TV and watch El Clasico’s drama develop.
This review may have been a little unkind to the remaining teams in La Liga but there are some top class sides battling to break the dominance of the big two. Atletico Madrid were the last club, other than Real or Barca, to win the La Liga title when they lifted the trophy at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
Along with Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna, Atleti are one of only three clubs to have lifted the La Liga title this century. We should also mention Sevilla and, while this side’s solitary La Liga success came back in 1946, they have a strong pedigree in Europe. Sevilla have won the Europa League on five separate occasions and that’s a record.
Challenges for the title and Champions League places drive those teams, with the exception of Deportivo who dropped down to the Segunda Division in 2017/18. Unibet back those aims with a series of outright markets including betting options on the relegation battle at the wrong end of the table.
