Competition: La Liga
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365
Desperate to simply build off of last weekend’s result, a struggling Valencia will make the trip to the Estadio de Mendizorroza on Friday night in what could be another lively encounter.
Starting with the hosts, while Alaves may have been disappointed to have only managed to collect a point away at relegation scrappers Leganes last week, Asier Garitano’s men have made some much-needed improvements over the past month. With just a sole defeat to their name since the end of January and looking to mount what would be a shock top half charge at the back end of the season, there is no doubt that fans around the Estadio de Mendizorroza will be most impressed by their side’s recent displays on home soil. Landing back-to-back 2-1 victories off of Eibar and Athletic Bilbao in front of their own supporters, a 2-1 defeat against Villereal is Alaves’ only defeat on home soil since opening the New Year.
As for the visitors, while Valencia may have managed to grab a 2-1 win off of Real Betis last weekend, it does not cover what has been a dreadful run of form for the Bats. Still reeling from their 4-1 hammering away at Champions League foes Atalanta in the first-leg of their knockout tie last month, the Spanish strugglers have lost four of their last six matches across all competitions and have continued to show some rather glaring issues at the back. Slipping out of the top-six and with just a sole win to their name over the past five weeks, Valencia have shipped at least a pair of goals in six of their last seven appearances. Remarkably, with all 10 of the previous meetings between the two sides producing over 2.5 goals, backing a similar outcome at 13/10 seems like a great bet for Friday night.
Bet: Over 2.5 goals at Alaves vs Valencia 13/10 for Friday’s La Liga matchup @ Bet 365
