History

La Liga was established in 1928 by The Spanish Football Federation and started off as a ten-team competition. Overall, a total of 59 teams have competed in the championship, nine of which have won the title. The first team to have won the Primera Liga was FC Barcelona, plucking the victory from bitter rivals Real Madrid. But, over the course of years, La Liga has crowned other champions including: Atlético Madrid, Athletic Bilbao, Valencia, Deportivo, Real Betis and Sevilla. However, starting with the 1950s, Real Madrid and Barcelona have dominated the contest, with Barcelona winning the crown 21 times and Real having won a record 32 times and being the current defending champion. You will find the best Primera Division odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Format

la liga primera division

The Primera División is presently a 20 teams contest and it uses the standard double round-robin format. During the season each club plays every other club twice, hosting one of them and having an away game, with a total of 38 matches. The teams receive three points for a win, one point for a draw and no points for a loss. The main criterion that ranks the teams is the total points, so the team with the biggest number of points at end of a season is crowned champion.

If two teams have an equal number of points, the head-to-head goal difference is used to determine the winner. In case the tie is between more than two clubs, the following criteria come into play: head-to-head points, head-to-head goal difference and head-to-head goals scored. If not all teams have played two legged games, or the tie remains unresolved by the above rules, it is broken using: total goal difference and total goals scored. In case the tie remains unsettled after all the above criteria has been applied, the Fair Play scales are used to determine the champion.

The Primera División and the Segunda División are linked by a promotion and relegation system, so as the bottom three teams in La Liga are downgraded to the Segunda División and the top two teams from the second division are promoted to La Liga. An additional club is promoted after a series of matches involving the third, fourth, fifth and sixth-placed clubs. Follow our Primera Division tips and register at bet365 for the best La Liga odds!
