Match Preview & Team News
There were no surprises when it comes to odds presented for this clash – Barca are huge favorites for the win, priced at low 1/3 rate. They have wasted huge opportunity to take over the leading position by losing to Granada at Camp Nou. There is no doubt Ronald Koeman has slim chances of keeping his job if Blaugrana doesn’t win the title. The remaining opponents are not looking easy at all. Next week’s derby against Atletico Madrid will probably be the key one. Read on our La Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
The first head to head clash between these opponents took place in Catalonia on 12th December 2020. It was a match full of action and good moves, eventually ending without winner 2-2 FT. The equalizer for Valencia was scored twenty minutes before the final whistle by Max Gomez. Bats have to be extremely careful how they approach the remaining five duels. The team is sitting in 14th place with total of 36 points, which is just six above the relegation zone. Recent results haven’t been that great, having three draws and two defeats in last five appearances. They have scored at least one goal in every of those matches though. The biggest danger for Barca’s back line is coming from Carlos Soler.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Eight out of the last nine divisional matches for CF Valencia have ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 goals total. We are going to combine these two options for this market. The current price is 4/5.
Barcelona definitely lack stability for months now, and clearly team spirits are at very low level. We feel Valencia could take advantage of that. This said, home win or draw double chance is going to be our high risk option at 2/1 rate.
