La Liga: Valencia vs Alaves Betting Preview

Valencia take on Alaves in La Liga on Thursday still waiting for their first points of the season. Our betting tips suggest they will get one here but no more than that.

Valencia vs Alaves
When: September 22, 2016, 9.00 PM
Where: Mestalla
Odds:
Prediction: 1-1 Draw at 6/1 with bet365

Valencia are the very definition of a club in crisis right now. They come into this match bottom of La Liga and without a point to their name following a 2-1 defeat at Athletic Bilbao at the weekend. That was their 7th consecutive league defeat, which is far from good enough given they are traditionally one of Spanish football’s powerhouses. If that run doesn’t end here then talk of the unthinkable and Valencia dropping out of the top flight will certainly start to crop up again as it did briefly last season. It may also leave coach Pako Ayestarán in a position that is close to untenable.

Alaves are the best equipped of the newly promoted sides to stay up and are unbeaten so far on their return to La Liga. They haven’t been exactly inspiring at home, where they were involved in a dull 0-0 draw with Deportivo La Coruna on Monday night, following another scoreless game against Sporting last month. However, on the road, under less pressure they have really impressed. Trips to Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have almost incredibly yielded 4 points, mostly thanks to their 2-1 win at Camp Nou almost a fortnight ago. They clearly aren’t a side that is intimidated by going to play at one of Spain’s great stadiums, so a trip to the Mestalla is unlikely to concern them, particularly the way Valencia are playing.

The bookies have been slow to react to just how poor Valencia are right now. After selling 3 of their best players following a season when they finished in the bottom half with just 44 points, it’s no surprise that they are struggling. They do nothing to justify their status as clear odds-on favourites to win this game, particularly with Alaves looking like a tough side to break down.

The Basques have conceded just 2 goals in 4 games this season, which is miraculous given who they’ve played, and they are capable of getting a result here ,so backing Alaves +1.0 Asian Handicap at 1.875 looks to offer value.
