Valencia v Real Madrid tips – back Real to rack up goals

On first glance, it might look as though Valencia look like a fantastic price at odds of 6/1 to get the better of Real Madrid at the Mestalla Stadium. After all, this is a football season like no other and Real are busy trying to juggle Champions League duties where Zinedine Zidane’s side are struggling to get through to the last sixteen stage after a sticky start.

Perhaps Los Che will be able to catch their high-flying opponents short, although it’s hard to be too confident about Javi Gracia’s side considering they have won just two of their eight matches thus far this season. Valencia are shipping goals and it’s likely that this trend will continue when they face a side who don’t need an invitation to tear into them.

Are Real Madrid Banker Material to Win at Mestalla?

Real are no bigger than 8/15 to win this La Liga clash and the biggest problem with backing these odds is the fact that Los Merengues will have met Internazionale in the Champions League which is a match that they badly need to win after collecting just a point from their first two games.

Zidane’s side have also dropped points in La Liga this season, drawing their opening game with Real Sociedad and getting turned over at home to Cadiz, although they enjoyed a facile 4-1 victory over struggling Huesca where Eden Hazard had a starring role and Karim Benzema’s excellent form in front of goal continued.

Real have won three and drawn one of their four away matches and many will think that their substantial squad can cope with this fixture schedule considering that the bench against Huesca included Toni Kroos, Rodrygo, Isco and Vinicius Junior.

Can Valencia Stop Real Madrid from Filling Their Boots?

Valencia finished ninth in the La Liga table last season and part of the reason behind their top-half finish was the fact that Los Che only lost one match at the Mestalla for the entire campaign, although while the team were also able to concede an average of less than one goal per game in their own stadium.

Things began promisingly for Gracia’s side this season thanks to accruing seven points from their first four matches, although that was followed by three successive defeats before a 2-2 draw against Getafe which saw Valencia lead 1-0 going into the final few minutes before a crazy end to the game and that won’t be great from a confidence point-of-view.

At least the draw has stopped the rot for the home team although it will be a concern that Getafe had so much of the ball in the past encounter and it will be interesting to see if Los Che can command much possession against such a star-studded team.

What Are the Best Bets for Valencia v Real Madrid?

For those looking to place a weekend football accumulator, Real Madrid are a perfectly reasonable selection to add to your multiple bet, with Los Merengues likely to outscore opponents who have conceded two goals in each of the previous four encounters and they’re likely to ship at least two in this one.

You can potentially boost your odds by going for a Real victory along with both teams to find the net. We think that the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score betting market is attractive considering that Zidane’s side are rarely about a clean sheet providing that they can get on the front foot and score goals.

We like the idea of Real winning the game by a 3-1 or a 3-2 scoreline, with Karim Benzema the ideal flat-track bully to fill his boots in this sort of game and Gracia’s side have pilfered seven goals in their three home matches, so they might as well be hung for a lion rather than a sheep.
