How Are Profit & Loss Figures Calculated?
As mentioned earlier, the Profit & Loss (P/L) statistics are calculated as if you were to back each team to win every game with £10 stakes using odds from bet365. The data is then added together cumulatively throughout the season to give the total profit or loss each team would gave generated.
ROI is calculated by dividing the total profit/loss by the number of matches played, and then converted into a percentage.

Spanish La Liga Key Stats
Below, we’ve compiled statistics from the past ten Spanish La Liga seasons in a clear, concise manner for speed and ease of use. There's no right or wrong way to use these numbers; statistics can be interpreted in many ways, so how you use the data is ultimately up to you.
Average Number of Goals Scored In La Liga Stats
|Season||Matches Played||Goals Scored||Average Goals per Game|
Across the previous ten La Liga seasons, there has been an average of 2.72 goals scored per game. The highest goals per game was in the 2016/17 season, with 2.94, while the lowest was the 2019/20 season, with 2.48. Interestingly, the last three seasons have seen a steady drop in this figure. It remains to be seen whether this is a temporary blip or an indicator of a more significant change.
La Liga Home/Away Goals & Win Percentage Stats (All Teams)
|Season||Average Home Goals per Match||Home Wins (%)||Average Away Goals per Match||Away Wins (%)|
It’s not surprising to see that teams perform significantly better on their home grounds, scoring a higher rate of goals, and winning more games.
La Liga Champions – Points Stats
|Season||Champions||Points||Points Needed to Win Title|
Over the last ten seasons, the La Liga Champions have won the title with an average of 2.45 points per game. In eight of them, they accumulated 90 points or more by the end of the season.
The Points Needed to Win title indicates the amount of points needed to finish above the 2nd -placed team, excluding the possibility of goal difference deciding the winner. This stat highlights the competitive nature of La Liga – over 90 points were needed to secure the title in half of the seasons.
La Liga Champions – Home/Away Win Percentage
|Season||Champions||Home Win Percentage||Home Total Points||Away Win Percentage||Away Points Total|
The stats are very clear here: to mount a successful challenge, ruthless home form is a must.
La Liga champions amassed an average of 49.6 points from home games, and only one La Liga champion wasn’t victorious in at least 15 of 18 home games.
Home form alone isn’t enough, however; away form is also pivotal to success. The La Liga champions averaged 43.5 away points per season.
The biggest home points tally was recorded by Barcelona in 2012/13, who won an astonishing 18 games and drew 1, for a total of 55 points. As for away points, the largest amount was 50 by Real Madrid in 2011/12, which amounted to half their total points that season.
La Liga Champions – Attacking Stats
|Season||Champions||Goals Scored||Average Goals per Game|
The La Liga Champions are usually free-scoring, with 8 of the last 10 scoring 90 goals or more, averaging 2.62 goals per game. Real Madrid’s 2011/12 season stands out most in recent years, as they found the net an amazing 121 times, scoring an average 3.18 goals per game.
However, Atletico Madrid (2013/14) and Real Madrid (2019/20) demonstrated that you don’t necessarily need to come close to matching this number to clinch the title. As we’ll see below, a rock-solid defence plays just as important a role in racking up the points.
La Liga Champions – Defensive Stats
|Season||Champions||Goals Conceded||Goals Conceded per Game||Clean Sheets|
The last 10 La Liga champions have conceded an average of 29.4 goals a season, with 5 of these teams keeping clean sheets in at least half of their games.
Real Madrid (2016/17) and Barcelona (2012/13) are the two outliers on this list, and 7 teams kept more clean sheets than them during these title-winning seasons.
As we saw above, these two teams scored 106 and 115 goals respectively, which obviously lowered the need for them to be watertight at the back.
La Liga Relegation Stats
|Season||Points Needed to Stay Up|
On the other end of the table, an average of 37.5 points have been necessary to maintain La Liga status over the past 10 years (excluding the possibility of goal difference). In that period, the most needed was 44 points in 2010/11; Deportivo La Coruña were relegated despite having 43 points, an amount that would have been enough to ensure survival in any other season.
Most Points In a La Liga Season
Jose Mourinho’s 2011/12 Real Madrid team and Pep Guardiola’s 2012/13 Barcelona team share the record for most points in a season, with 100 apiece. Incredibly, the next 2 highest points tallies occurred in the same season (2009/10), again between Barcelona and Real Madrid, with the former triumphing at 99 points.
