29/04: Daily Predictions: Barcelona vs Valencia

Betting Tips

Barcelona, who are about to lose their La Liga title, will try to save face when Valencia visits Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys on Monday night.

La Blaugrana now trail Real Madrid by 14 points atop the standings, and their visitors’ hopes of qualifying for Europe were dashed last time out with a 2-1 loss to Real Betis.

Barcelona will attempt to recover from a humiliating loss at El Clasico. Barcelona’s attention is now on obtaining at least a second-place finish this season.

Barcelona vs Valencia

When Barcelona plays Valencia, they will want to maintain their second-place result and finish in the European qualification spots, as winning the La Liga title is now out of their grasp. Barcelona’s temporary home stadium, the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, will host La Liga matchday 33.

Before this matchday, the hosts hold the second position in the standings with 70 points, while the visitors are in ninth place with 47 points. In their most recent match, Barcelona was defeated 3-2 by Real Madrid, but Jude Bellingham scored a late winner. It was their second consecutive setback; the first came from a 4-1 loss to PSG, which eliminated them from the Champions League.

Valencia, who drew the rematch 1-1, sits one point behind the top seven spots heading into this matchday. Had they not lost their most recent game, 2-1, against fierce rival Real Betis, they might have been in a better position. They still have a decent chance of passing Betis and finishing in the top seven.

They would need to win their next two games in order to do that, as they had won the previous two. Valencia has won their previous two away league games, despite the fact that they haven’t exactly relished traveling. Both were a part of their five away victories during the previous eight competitive visits, which came by a score of 1-0.

Head-to-Head

Barcelona won the rematch 0-1, and they are currently enjoying a four-game winning streak. It’s also crucial to remember that the home team has scored 55 goals and won 14 of the previous 19 meetings at this stadium.

Verdict

Barcelona comes into this match having lost their last two games, but the Blaugrana played well in each, with only a few crucial decisions going against them. In addition to having a respectable record versus Valencia at this location, Xavi’s team has won three of their past four home La Liga games. They’ve prevailed 4-1 overall in the last two matchups, and I expect them to win again on Monday.

Valencia, though, has kept their recent games quite close. In the last six games, the visitors have only scored two goals or more in one. After falling to Real Madrid in the El Clasico last weekend, Barcelona is all but eliminated from the championship race. The Catalans now only have the league games to focus on after their Champions League setback. Barcelona’s only current option is to finish in second place, while Valencia still has a chance to qualify for Europe. It’s possible for these teams to have a less competitive game with fewer goals scored.
