Betting tips – Valencia vs Real Madrid – 22.02.2017
Besides the Champions League matches, we have another exciting duel scheduled in Spanish La Liga, with Valencia facing Real Madrid from 17:45 at Mestalla.
Valencia disappointed their fans this campaign, but now they seem to get a little better. The hosts have 23 points and a 31-40 goal difference in their account. These numbers put them on the 15th position in Spain, only seven points above red line. It is still a long way, but Valencia even have relegation concerns at this point. Moreno, Mina and Montoya are all injured and not available.
Valencia probable lineup (4-2-3-1): Alves – Cancelo, Mangala, Garay, Gaya – Perez, Parejo – Haddadi, Orellana, Nani – Zaza.
Real Madrid are in pole-position when it comes to title race. Their recent form is really good, even in La Liga, where they won the last four matches. The Galactics have 52 points and a 56-18 goal difference. They are one point above Barcelona, but with two matches in hand ahead of this duel. Real struggled in the previous two trips here, winning only one point out of six.
Real Madrid probable lineup (4-3-3): Navas – Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo – Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Rodriguez, Benzema, Ronaldo.
Prediction: 2 @ 1.55
We expect Gent being more focused on the defense, while Spurs will probably not force too much, having the qualification ticket in their ticket next week at home. More than that, it is not excluded to see Pochettino resting few important players today.
