Betfair LS Billboard - Valencia v Barcelona Tips & Football Preview: Quique Setien on the first true test

Match Preview & Team News

Barcelona travel to Estadio de Mestalla to battle Valencia in one of the most interesting clashes of the week in La Liga. Blaugrana were winless against Los Che in three head to head encounters in the last season, a streak that included Valencia’s 2-1 win in the Copa del Rey final in May last year. However, the Catalans got some kind of revenge with a demolishing 5-2 victory when teams locked horns in the first half of the 2019/20 campaign back in September at Camp Nou. Can they earn the domestic double over Los Che this time around?

Albert Celades’ men suffered a humiliating defeat six days ago

Celades could have hardly imagined a worse beginning to the year as Valencia conceded four goals in a tough loss to the recently-promoted Mallorca last weekend. If we count the 1-3 loss to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final, we can clearly speak about the defensive issues in the team. The atmosphere was slightly improved with a narrow 0-1 win over lower-division UD Logrones in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday.

Barcelona are by no means impressive under the new manager

Blaugrana finally got rid of Ernesto Valverde, but they did not improve significantly under Quique Setien. The former Real Betis manager led the team to back-to-back narrow wins over the likes of Granada (1-0 at the Camp Nou) and Ibiza (1-2 in the Copa del Rey). The attacking line looked toothless without Luis Suarez in the final third. The Uruguayan striker is lost for the season. Lionel Messi was rested in the mid-week’s cup action, but will he be able to make the difference for his team once again here?

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Valencia are unbeaten in their own backyard this season (five wins and draws each in ten games so far), while Blaugrana won only four of ten league fixtures on the road. The home win or draw double chance is the way to go at the 5/4 odds.

Goals Market Prediction

Valencia did concede loads last weekend at Mallorca, but Barcelona were by no means impressive in the final third in two games with Setien in charge. The value is massive with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 6/4. We’ll also shoot for the 1-1 correct score at the 15/2 odds.
