Barcelona will look to get back to winning ways in La Liga when they make the trip to the Estadio de Mestalla to face Valencia on Sunday night. Valencia managed a 1-0 victory on the road at Real Sociedad thanks to a first-half goal from Kevin Gameiro. Meanwhile, Barcelona fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against Athletic Bilbao last weekend thanks to a late equalizer from Munir El Haddadi. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Valencia’s form over the past two months has been a complete mixed bag with six draws, two wins and two defeats in their last ten games across all competitions. They are now unbeaten in four competitive games, including a decent 0-0 draw on the road at Manchester United in the Champions League. The most worrying thing is that Los Che are winless in four competitive home fixtures this season.
Barcelona, on the flip side, started their title defence in an excellent manner, but their recent form in La Liga has definitely been shocking. They are winless in three league outings at the moment, registering two draws against Girona and Bilbao along with a 2-1 away loss at Leganes. However, Barca looked amazing in midweek as they beat Tottenham 4-2 away from home in the Champions League.
Barcelona should be able to get back to winning ways here, so our betting tips and predictions fancies Barcelona to win at odds 1.66.
