Swansea face Europa League Group A favourites Valencia at the Mestalla in front of 55,000 in their opening group game and we have got Europa League betting tips for tonight.
Brian Laudrup’s men will be hoping their recent turn in fortunes will continue and will be able to capitalise on Valencia’s indifferent form. Valencia’s last five games have seen them win two and lose three, they have only played twice at home though, winning once and narrowly losing 2-3 to Barcelona.
Swansea had to come through the play offs to qualify for the group stages beating Romanian side Petrolul 6-3 on aggregate which included a 5-1 home win and losing 2-1 away. In the league Laudrup’s men lost their opening two games against Manchester United and Spurs, but then they beat WBA 2-0 away and in their last game they drew 2-2 with Liverpool at home.

Swansea will be without Pablo Hernandez, Neil Taylor and the suspended Leon Britton for this Europa game and they will give a late fitness test to Wilfred Bony after he picked up a rib injury against Liverpool but he is expected to be fit. Valencia has no injury concerns and could name the same side that lost 3-1 to Betis.
Valencia’s last four games have all gone over 3.5 goals while two out of Swansea’s last three games have gone over 2.5 goals. It’s also worth noting that in Valencia’s last four games there has been over 1.5 first half goals, while in Swansea’s last game also brought over 1.5 first half goals.
Over 2.5 goals – 10/11 Stan James
Over 1.5 first half goals – 85/40 Bet Victor
