Reasons For Barcelona vs Valencia predictions & Betting Tips
It’s a clash between the two best teams in Spain at the moment. Barca lead the way on 34 points, with Los Che on 30 and on a winning streak of eight matches.
Should the home side win they will move to within just a point of the league leaders. However, the Blaugrana can go seven points clear at the top if they emerge from Mestalla victorious.
Ernesto Valverde and the Barca squad are taking this match very seriously. Lionel Messi was left on the bench in the midweek draw with Juventus in the Champions League in anticipation for this match.
Valencia have had a week to prepare, but despite not always convincing Barca have become accustomed to picking up important results this season and we could see them doing the same here at 1.80 with Unibet.
Los Che will be without manager Marcelino on the touchline after his red card at Espanyol last week. His team won 2-0, although were perhaps a little fortunate after the hosts squandered a number of chances.
They will not be scared to attack Barcelona, but that could allow gaps in behind for the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to exploit. We’re backing the latter to build on his double at Leganes last week and score first at 4.80 with Unibet.
As for the correct score, a 2-1 away win looks a good bet at 8.50 with bet365.
Valencia vs Barcelona Form
Barcelona play Valencia at the Mestalla on Sunday evening in a meeting between the top two teams in La Liga. This will be a real test for Ernesto Valverde’s men, with Barca manager resting Lionel Messi in midweek in anticipation for this match. Los Che can move to within one point of Barca with a win – which would be their ninth in a row.
Barca have dropped just two points in La Liga so far this season, away at Atletico Madrid back in October. They drew away at Juventus in midweek with Messi on the bench, and will be desperate for a win here which would take them seven points clear at the top.
Barcelona Form: DWWDWW
Los Che have looked unstoppable this season and are on an eight-match winning streak. They are yet to lose under new manager Marcelino, although this will be their biggest test yet.
