Barcelona to Win with Handicap (-1)

Despite their loss to Granada a few days ago, Barcelona is still fully involved in the race for the Spanish league title. A win in this game would give them a huge boost, especially after that shocking result. So, with Valencia in poor form at the moment (and the entire season), our prediction for this match is a convincing Barca win, with at least a two-goal difference.

Over 3.5 Total Goals

If you want to play it safe, betting on over 2.5 total goals is a reasonable option. However, we don’t like the odds on that bet and we believe that over 3.5 total goals is also a smart bet. After all, Barcelona is leading the league in goals per match, with an average of 3.27 goals per game. Also, Valencia is not that far away, with 2.7 goals per game. Furthermore, three of the last five h2h duels between these teams have gone over 3.5 total goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Since we think that this match has the potential for a lot of goals, another logical bet is for both teams to score. This is something that happens often in duels between these teams. In fact, it happened in four of their five meetings. Furthermore, both teams have scored in seven of the last eight Valencia matches, while the same thing happened in six of the last eight Barca games in La Liga.

Valencia vs Barcelona preview: Can Blaugrana recover from the shocking loss to Granada?

With the title race getting more interesting after every match, the game between Valencia and Barcelona can bring us a lot of excitement. So, let’s take a more detailed look at both teams.

Valencia

The Bats are having an appalling season by their standards since they are currently 14th in La Liga and only six points ahead of the relegation zone. While it still seems that relegation is unlikely and that Valencia won’t be placed in that stressful fight for their life, the season has certainly been a disappointment for their fans. Valencia is also in poor form at this moment since they failed to win in the last five league matches. Luckily, only Cillessen is injured at the time, so they will be able to field their best team in the Barcelona match.

Barcelona

The loss to Granada at Camp Nou on Thursday came as an absolute shock to the entire football world since Barca has only lost once in the previous 22 matches and that loss was in El Clasico. With the title on the line, nobody expected that to happen, especially after Barcelona took the lead in the first half. Anyway, Blaugrana is now in a more difficult position since they still trail Atletico Madrid by two points. Another problem for them are injuries to Fati, Coutinho, and Braithwaite.
