Spanish La Liga

2012-04-15 - Espanyol v Valencia

A Sports Betting Preview by Addicted

ESPANYOL v VALENCIA
Football : Spain : La Liga
Sunday, April 15th, 2012, 11:00AM GMT



PREVIEW


Espanyol host Valencia in the early kickoff on Sunday in La Liga, and will be hoping to improve on recent results against the side currently in 3rd place, only behind Read Madrid and Barcelona. The recent form is against them though, along with the head-to-head.

Espanyol are now on a run of 5 league games without a win, with 3 draws and 2 losses. In fact, they have only won 2 of their last 12 games, which is a big enough sample size to know this is not a team to back in any way right now. I remember mentioning that Liverpool would be ranked 19th in the Premier League if we only counted results in the 2nd half of the season. Well, in La Liga, if we counted just the 2nd half of the season, Espanyol would be 18th! In contrast, Valencia are playing some very good football, and the result show it.

Valencia are off some very impressive results in recent games. They bounced back in Europe by thumping AZ 4-0, before becoming the first team to go blank Real Madrid 0-0 at the Bernabeu. Then in their last match, Valencia put a 4-1 spanking down on Rayo Vallecano. So why the huge price on them to win here at 10th placed Espanyol? I think it is because Valencia have not picked up quite enough wins on the road of late, winning on only 2 of their last 10 trips away from home. There is also the concern about a lookahead to their European game after this, which might distract them.

Valencia's semi-final match in the Europa League is on Thursday, which is a while away, unlike the Champions League matches that take place on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also, they are playing Atletico Madrid, which isn't exactly European travel is it? There is enough talent in this side to even rotate and still win, as Soldado looks set to be rested for some of the match, making way for Aduriz, but he's a dangerous enough player so Valencia will still be a threat.

Espanyol has some key absentees for this match, including Philippe Coutinho and Juan Forlin, who were both sent off in Espanyol's last match, a 2-0 loss at Osasuna. I think that a weakened defence for the home side means Valencia will have chance after chance to score, and they shall not be blanked.

BETTING VERDICT


I did consider taking Valencia to score at least 2 goals in this match, which is available at a generous 2.25, but since I do not see Espanyol netting twice I might as well go for the away win, which we can get for 2.50 over at Pinnacle.
