This Sunday evening there is an intriguing La Liga clash which sees Miroslav ÄukiÄ‡’s inconsistent Valencia taking on Real Betis, at the Estadio Benito Villamarín, with kick off coming at 8pm (GMT).
While this game may not be the showcase Spanish Primera Division match of the week, you can be guaranteed that both managers will be keen to pick up three points to really kick start their seasons. Interestingly both Real Betis to win and Valencia to win can be found at 7/4, with Ladbrokes and Bet Victor respectively. The draw can be found at 12/5 also with Bet Victor, although out of these options, I strongly feel Valencia to win offers the best value for money.
While Betis earnt a hard fought point away to Espanyol (0-0) before the international break, Valencia found themselves 3-0 down at home to Barcelona after 41mins. What followed was a first half injury time brace from Helder Postiga to make it 3-2 and it remained that way at full time. With Postiga scoring three goals in as many matches this season and with Betis only managing two goals between them, I need not look any further then Valencia’s new number 9 for my first tip. It is of course Helder Postiga to score first, which you can get a ‘gourmet’ kind of tasty 6/1 at Bet365!
After doing the dogs work for you guys and looking through fixture history and certain statistics of both of these two teams, one score keeps popping up. I can reveal that Real Betis have already lost by the scoreline of 2-1, twice this season. The last time Valencia won at Estadio Benito Villamarín was in 2009 by what score? Yeah, you guessed it, 2-1. In fact, of the last ten meetings between the two sides half of the games have finished by that score. With Valencia winning on three of those five occasions.
Having looked at the statistics and what I have covered in the last paragraph the next tip I would recommend is a correct score of 2-1. The next obvious question is which team to go for? Both have had average starts to the season with Betis not managing to win any of their three games and Valencia only managing one win by a margin of 1-0 against Malaga. Whilst Betis hold the home advantage they haven’t looked like scoring two goals with one game and I believe that playing at home will work against their favour, due to the fans expectation of this game. This for me swings the pendulum in Valencia’s favour and I can see them stealing a 2-1 win, which can be found at a generous 10/1 with Ladbrokes.
Helder Postiga to score first @ 6/1 (Bet365)
