Ibiza is often described as a millionaire’s playboy paradise, a scenic marvel and a house music pilgrimage, but a footballing haven? Not a chance at all.  Although over the past few seasons with some heavy investment, Union Deportivo Ibiza Eivissa are rapidly rising through Spain’s lower divisions.

At the time of writing Real Sociedad sit pretty at the top of La Liga (although Atletico does have two games in hand on them) and riding a crest of a wave that has been a couple of seasons in the making.

Before the final game both Valencia and Getafe sat above the Andalusian side, with Getafe sat firmly in the European places after performing impressively all season and competing in Europe along side the Primera Liga. Valencia too would be ..read more

Three sides have earned the right to feast at the top table of Spanish football ahead of the new season, but who are they? What is their topflight history? And do they have what it takes to stay up?

Yes, the season may well have just finished, but the odds are in for next season, and Real Madrid are instilled as the early favourites to make it back to back titles. Perhaps understandably after Los Blancos claimed the crown by a five-point cushion over great rivals Barcelona who could end the season pot-less in what would prove to be a disappointing campaign for the Catalan giants. The early prices have Real at just slightly odds on at 9/10 with Barcelona hot on their heels at evens. As we have come to expect, Atletico are priced as the best of the rest at a rather tempting 10/1 despite Die ..read more
