Understanding La Liga Team Stats

Spanish La Liga squads gain three points in the standings for a win, no points for a loss and one for a tie. The La Liga league table is an important source of team stats, along with match summaries. Some popular La Liga stats by team displayed are points, goal difference, goals for and against, shots and shots on target, and possession percentage. 

Goal difference is an aggregate measure of a team’s goal scored subtracted by goals against throughout the season. It can be a big factor in breaking ties in the La Liga title race and La Liga table in general. The first tiebreaker is head-to-head points, followed by head-to-head goal difference. If teams can’t be separated by the first two, general goal difference comes into play. 

These aren’t the only soccer team stats used for betting. A team’s record against the goal line, SU record, and home/away record are all important. Clean sheets are a useful measure to assess a defense and goalkeeper, and cards are worth tracking for suspension purposes. Check out the latest La Liga news and betting analysis.

La Liga 2 - Segunda Division

La Rosa Liga 2, also known as the Segunda Division, is the second-tier Spanish soccer league. There are 22 teams in La Liga 2, with seven divisional movements each season. The bottom three teams from La Liga are relegated to La Liga 2 each season.

Meanwhile, the top two La Liga 2 teams and the winner of the promotion playoff take their place each season. La Liga 2’s bottom four teams are relegated to the third-tier Primera Division RFEF. The Primera Division’s two group winners are promoted to La Liga 2, along with the two promotion playoff champions.

The teams that descended from the La Liga, on this 2022-2023 season, and moved into the La Liga 2. Here’s the list of the relegated teams:

  • Granada CF
    • After spending the last three seasons in La Liga, Granada C.F. were relegated in 2021-22. Granada lost just one of their last six matches but were the losers of a four-team relegation battle. Getafe, Mallorca and Cadiz all finished just one point ahead of 18th-place Granada. By some measures, Granada didn’t have an awful season. They managed to score more goals than 11 other teams and had the best goal difference of any relegated team in the last three years. 

  • Levante UD
    • Levante had the worst defense in La Liga by a wide margin and finished in 19th place in 2021-22. Only six teams scored more goals than Levante but they conceded close to two goals per game, dooming them to relegation. Levante won five of their last nine La Liga matches but still finished the season four points outside of safety. They lost leading scorer Jose Luis Morales ahead of their first Segunda Division season for six years.
  • Deportivo Alaves
    • Alaves scored the fewest goals and had the worst goal difference in La Liga in 2021-22. Usually, that’s a surefire recipe for relegation. Sure enough, Alaves finished in last place and gained just 31 points throughout the season. Thus, their six-season run in La Liga came to an end. Joselu, who scored nearly half of their goals last season, is off to Espanyol.
