Injuries & Suspensions
One of the influencing factors when it comes to La Liga betting is who is missing from a particular line-up for a match. As well as form of a current side, a big thing to take into consideration is La Liga injuries and bans.

There is an importance for looking at this valuable information, so that you aren’t backing blindly an under strength side because of an injury or a suspension. Every team has their most valuable players, the clutch players, the fulcrums which makes the team tick.

If a club is racking up the numbers in the La Primera Division injuries and suspensions departments, then it should have an influence on your betting. Is the midfield dynamo on the La Liga injury list? Is the top goal-getter missing because of suspension?
