Preview of our 2022-23 Spain’s LaLiga Primera Division predictions
Fancy some Spanish soccer betting tips? Let’s roll! Spanish Primera Division is contested among 20 teams and the team with the most points at the end of the season wins the league. Real Madrid won La Liga last season, finishing 13 points above second-placed Barcelona.
Per the rules, teams that finish in the top 4 at the end of the season will qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League. The fifth-placed team qualifies for the UEFA Europa League alongside the winner of the Copa del Rey. In cases where the Copa del Rey winner finishes in the top 5, the UEFA will give the last Europa League spot to the team that finishes in sixth place. The sixth or seventh-placed team qualifies for the newly formed UEFA Conference League as it depends on if the Copa del Rey winner ends in the top 5.

Real Madrid finished the 2021-22 La Liga season first on the table, 13 points above second-placed Barcelona. Madrid had 86 points and scored 80 goals against 31 conceded. Now Real Madrid have 35 titles.
Real Madrid’s most important player is none other than Karim Benzema. The French international scored the most for Madrid last season yet again, with 44 goals in 46 appearances, 27 goals being league ones. Benzema was crucial in almost all games, as he was fit for most of the season.
Other key players of Real Madrid apart from Karim Benzema:

- Thibaut Courtois
- Luka Modric
- Eden Hazard
Barcelona finished second on the table in the 2021-22 La Liga season with 73 points while scoring 68 goals. They conceded 38 goals.
Memphis Depay will be crucial for Barcelona yet again. The Dutchman was one of the best players in French Ligue 1 before leaving it. Depay scored the second most goals in the 2020-21 season with 20 goals from 17.33 xG. In addition, he provided the most assists in the same season (12) while creating the most big chances in the league (20). Depay is a very creative player and also very clinical and will be essential to Barcelona’s success in the 2022-23 Primera Division.
Frenkie De Jong is another key player for Barcelona with his exceptional ability on the ball. The Dutch midfielder has the power to break pressing while also creating chances. De Jong created nine big chances in the 2020-21 season and had 49 key passes in the same tenure.

Atletico Madrid trailed third in the 2021-22 Primera Division with 71 points after a very competitive season. They scored 65 goals against 43 conceded.
The Slovenian goalkeeper, Jan Oblak, keeps being essential to the team. As a result, Atletico dropped to the ninth position by goals conceded in the 2021-22 season, sharing it with Celta Vigo. However, the vice-captain is still the number one choice in the goals.
Alvaro Morata returned from Juventus, where he stayed on loan and may prove instrumental to the success of Atletico Madrid this season.
Other key players of Atletico Madrid apart from Jan Oblak and Alvaro Morata:
- Marcos Llorente
- Yannick Carrasco
- Angel Correa
- Joao Felix
- Antonie Griezman
Sevilla finished fourth in the league last season again with 70 points. They scored 53 goals and conceded 30, the least in the league (one less than Madrid).
Rafa Mir and Lucas Ocampos scored the most goals for Sevilla in the 2021-22 season, with 13 and 9 goals in all tournaments, respectively. Both forwarded goalscoring efforts to the Primera Division as well. They will prove invaluable to the club this season.
Other key players of Sevilla apart from Lucas Ocampos and Rafa Mir:
- Youssef En-Nesyri
- Jesus Navas
- Joan Jordan
- Erik Lamela
