In our blog post yesterday, we discussed the upcoming weekend games in the German Bundesliga and French Ligue 1. Today, we will be switching our attention to two other leagues that make up Europe’s top five leagues: La Liga and Serie A.
With the group stages of the Champions League and Europa League done with, top teams in both leagues can now concentrate on amassing all necessary points to finish in the top four. Sides currently in the relegation zone will also try to climb away from the highly dreaded area.
Action this week, in these two leagues, will feature European heavyweights, classic names and plenty to talk about.
Spanish La Liga
Barcelona and Real Madrid are joint leaders on the La Liga table. What separates one from the other is the number of goals they’ve scored. Table-toppers, Barcelona have scored 42 goals in their 15 league games – an average of almost three per game.

For Real Madrid, they’ve learned to keep it tight at the back in their recent games. Despite a shaky start to the season, the 11 goals they’ve conceded make them the second-best defense in the league – second only to Atletico Madrid. They will be looking to get all three points this weekend and head into the El Clasico clash with all the confidence they can muster.
Sevilla, Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao, and Atletico Madrid are all separated by just a point. The goals they score this weekend will determine how high they climb or how low they tumble down the table.

Italian Serie A
It seems this year will be the first time, in a long while, that the Italian Serie A will have a champion that is not Juventus. Round 15 produced a number of shocking results in the league, including Inter Milan’s draw and Juventus’ defeat at the Eternal City.
Can you predict which game will feature goals at both ends of the pitch?

Now two points of the top of the table, Juventus may be looking at a season without the Serie A title. They have to start conceding less than Inter’s 13 (league best). More importantly, they also have to outscore teams like Atalanta, Lazio, Inter Milan, and Cagliari, sides that have scored an average of two goals per game this season.
Genoa and Lecce seem doomed for relegation this season, having conceded an average of two goals per game this season. This worrying trend may just continue into their Round 16 games.
Which of these two leagues are you adding to your bet slip this weekend?
