Real Madrid: Can they complete another domestic sweep or will Girona cause an upset?

Spain’s La Liga has been full of surprises as the elite teams take a break during the festive season. While Real Madrid is currently at the top of the league, Girona has been the surprise team of the season so far. With predictions of an intense title race in 2024, bookmakers have weighed in on their favorites for this season.

Real Madrid is the favorite to win the league this season, with odds of 4/11. Despite finishing 10 points behind the champions last season, Real Madrid has been in top form under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti. The team is also cruising through the Champions League and looks set to mount a strong European challenge in the New Year.

Girona, on the other hand, has emerged as the underdog with odds of 5/1 to win the league. The team has enjoyed a remarkable run, currently trailing Real Madrid only on goal difference. With 45 points from their first 18 league games and no defeats so far, Girona has proven to be a real threat in the title race.

Barcelona, the defending champions, have struggled to replicate their winning form from last season. With odds of 9/1, they are currently seven points adrift of the league leaders. Xavi’s side is facing challenges both on and off the field and will need to overcome these obstacles to defend their title.

Overall, La Liga has been unpredictable and exciting so far this season. As the league takes a break, all eyes will be on these top teams as they gear up for a thrilling second half of the season.
