Competition: La Liga
Market: Valencia to beat Espanyol
Odds: 7/5 @ Bet365
Spain’s top league continues on Sunday with a glut of important games still to be played. With Barcelona winning yet again, and Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid drawing in their game, it seems like the job of challenging the top side is falling solely to Valencia, who travel to face Espanyol on Sunday, with the home side struggling to kick on this season.
Espanyol have been languishing in the lower reaches of the table this campaign and, with another few bad results, they may find themselves within the reach of the relegation zone. Three wins, four draws and four defeats has seen Espanyol collect 13 points this season, while they have won just one game in their last five, drawing twice and losing twice, which, along with the fact they have only scored nine goals this season, is not good enough, especially if they want to make a surge up the table towards safety.
For Valencia, this has been an outstanding season. With 11 games gone they are still unbeaten, having won eight times and drawn three games. 30 goals scored is a superb record, while they have managed to concede just 11 goals, showing that while they are an attack-centric side, they can defend well too. A win over Espanyol would cut the gap between themselves and Barcelona to just four points ahead of their meeting, while it will also mean that they are in good form going into the top of the table clash. With this in mind, we are backing Valencia with odds of 7/5 from Bet365.
