The three last-placed teams are relegated to the Segunda División at the end of each season and are replaced by the top two teams and a play-off winner of that league.
Since its inception, a total of 62 teams have participated in La Liga. Nine teams have been crowned champions, with Barcelona winning the inaugural La Liga and Real Madrid taking the title a record 35 times, most recently in the 2021-22 season.
In the 1940s, Valencia, Atlético Madrid and Barcelona proved to be the strongest clubs, winning several titles. Real Madrid and Barcelona dominated the championship in the 1950s, winning four La Liga titles each in the decade.
In the 1960s and 1970s, Real Madrid dominated La Liga with fourteen titles, while Atlético Madrid won four.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Real Madrid led La Liga, but Basque clubs Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad also had their share of success, winning two league titles each.
Since the 1990s, Barcelona have dominated the league, winning sixteen titles to date.
La Liga teams competing in 2023-24 include: Alavés, Almería, Athletic Bilbao, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Cadiz, Celta Vigo, Getafe, Girona, Granada, Las Palmas, Mallorca, Osasuna, Rayo Vallecano, Real Betis, Real Madrid, Real Sociedad, Sevilla, Valencia, Villarreal.
It is “sharpened” to demonstrate its best qualities. In Spain, all players have a high level of technical equipment. They know how to play passing and operate effectively in limited spaces.
That’s why most teams in Spanish football strive to play short passes and constantly want to have a territorial advantage. This has been the hallmark of local football since the late 00s. Since Guardiola's tiki-taka sparked a football revolution.
It has been repeatedly possible to observe how Spanish participants in European cups (including referees) relegate football to the background with their behavior and decisions.
However, this confrontation has a big history, which “accumulates nerves” before each match. In such a situation, even the Ballon d'Or nominees lose their nerves.
Flagrant fouls are a given in Spain and the referee often has reason to show a red card. So if there is an opportunity to bet on the number of video replays in a match, then it is worth seriously considering it.
In most cases, they do not gravitate towards total control of the ball. That is, such a game is open, and, as they say, “on a collision course.”
In view of this, head-to-head meetings between outsiders can be very productive. Bookmakers often underestimate the scoring potential of underdog matches. And therefore, you can try to bet more on the total with a “value” odds.
They can't even try to compete with the top half of the table. There is indeed some predictability in this. As already mentioned, Spain is the least favorable environment for underdogs. This should be taken into account when choosing a bet.
In addition, do not forget about the playing style and temperament characteristics. They sometimes greatly influence the final outcome or performance of the match.
Especially when teams of comparable class play. In view of this, it is logical to pay more attention to secondary statistics. For example, the number of fouls, yellow cards or accurate shots on goal.
Despite all the existing features and trends, each match of the Spanish championship is unique. Under certain conditions, it can become the complete opposite of the prevailing ideas about the tournament.
Therefore, each bet must be verified and justified as much as possible. Features and trends only guide the course of thought.
