Valencia vs Las Palmas Predictions

The Quest for Momentum in La Liga’s New Dawn

Key Stats
– Valencia clinched victory against Sevilla with a stunning 88th-minute goal.
– Las Palmas have won four of their last five encounters against Valencia.
– Valencia’s defensive vulnerabilities are apparent, with goals conceded in eight of their last nine matches.

Valencia are looking to maintain the momentum from their promising start to the 2023-24 La Liga season. The historic side secured a pivotal 2-1 victory over Sevilla at Estadio Ramon and is poised to face the newly-promoted Las Palmas at their fortress, Mestalla.

However, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Valencia. Last season’s performance, placing a lacklustre 16th, marked their most underwhelming display since the 1985-86 relegation scare. Valencia’s struggles to reclaim their once iconic top-four standing, last achieved in 2018-19, are marred by financial woes.

Despite the odds, Valencia’s budding talents display a beacon of hope. A prime example is 20-year-old Javi Guerra, whose decisive 88th-minute goal against Sevilla has given fans something to cheer about. Yet, transfers have been minimal with the arrivals of Cenk Ozkacar and Pepelu, and the departure of stalwarts like Edinson Cavani and Yunus Musah. Amid these challenges, clinching a top-half finish would be a commendable feat. They’ll be looking to overcome last season’s away form, where a mere 13 points from 19 matches were garnered.

Las Palmas’ Return:

Las Palmas mark their La Liga return after a five-year hiatus. Their 1-1 home draw against Mallorca suggests they’ve reintegrated well. While their objective is to avoid relegation, Las Palmas’ recent signings, Sandro Ramirez and Munir El Haddadi among them, hint at ambitions beyond mere survival.

Interestingly, Las Palmas have a favourable recent head-to-head record against Valencia, winning four of the last five encounters. Yet, this might be a different ball game, given Valencia’s renewed spirit.

The Tactical Blueprint:

Valencia’s head coach, Ruben Baraja, is expected to largely retain the side that triumphed over Sevilla. However, Guerra’s heroics might earn him a starting berth. On the other hand, Garcia Pimienta’s Las Palmas will potentially miss Alberto Moleiro and Fabio Gonzalez due to injuries.

The line-ups hint at Valencia’s balanced attack and Las Palmas’ reliance on their midfield, notably Jonathan Viera, who’s been their standout player.

Statistical Overview:

Valencia’s resilience is evident as they’ve lost only two of their last ten La Liga games. Despite this, their defence remains a concern, having conceded in eight of the previous nine matches. Contrastingly, Las Palmas boasts a high ball possession rate of 69%, indicating their preference for controlled play.


1. Match Outcome: Valencia to Win

Considering the recent form and data available, Valencia seem poised to maintain a strong position against Las Palmas. Valencia began their new season with a morale-boosting victory over Sevilla, showcasing their intent to improve upon the previous season’s performance. Moreover, they’ve managed to clinch 8 points from their last four home games, even besting titans like Real Madrid in the process.

In contrast, Las Palmas, while showing spirit with a draw against Mallorca, are making a fresh comeback to the top flight after a hiatus. This switch in quality and competition is bound to challenge the newly-promoted side. While upsets are always possible in football, the recent form, home advantage, and strength of Valencia suggests they will have the upper hand in the upcoming clash.

2. Correct Score Prediction: Valencia 2-1 Las Palmas

Diving deeper into the statistics, Valencia have a pattern that can’t be ignored: they’ve won with a 2-1 scoreline three times in their last nine La Liga matches, indicating a penchant for narrowly outscoring their opponents. Meanwhile, Las Palmas, in their recent outing, displayed their capability to put a goal on the board. While Valencia’s defence has been a concern, having conceded in eight of their last nine matches, their attack seems potent enough to outscore their defensive lapses. Given this trend and the offensive capabilities of both teams, a 2-1 victory in favour of Valencia is a plausible outcome.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Javi Guerra to Score

20-year-old Javi Guerra has already made a mark early in the season with his decisive goal against Sevilla. Coming off the bench to net a winner in the 88th minute not only showcases his potential but also his composure in clutch situations. His recent form combined with the fact that he is among the top scorers for Valencia in the early part of the season puts him in a favourable position to find the back of the net against Las Palmas. Given his current momentum and the likely high-pressure setting of the game, Guerra is a strong candidate to score during the match.
