- Updated: 26th August 2018
Espanyol vs Valencia – La Liga :Espanyol and Valencia face off this Sunday afternoon at the Cornellá-El Prat
on a match of the 2nd round of La Liga.
Espanyol finished in 11th place of La Liga with 49 points conquered, thanks to a record of 12 victories, 13 draws and 13 losses.
Their goals’ ratio tells us that they counted with 36 goals scored and 42 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.1 goals per match.
Playing in front of their own fans, the Catalan side managed to get their better results, winning 8 of the 19 matches as visitors.
On the 1st round, Espanyol travelled to Balaídos, where they have recorded a 1-1 draw against Celta.
Valencia finished in 4th place of the La Liga with 73 points conquered, thanks to a record of 22 victories, 7 draws and 9 losses.
In terms of goals, they recorded 65 goals scored and 38 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.7 goals per match.
Their record away from home was less productive, in terms of points conquered and goals scored.
The team made its debut in the league with a 1-1 draw, but the difficulty level was quite high, taking into consideration that their opponents were Atlético de Madrid.
Espanyol vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at the Cornellá-El Prat isn’t easy for any opponents, but I believe there is value in exploring the side of the visitors. Valencia has done pretty well against Atlético,
they don’t have a lot of fresh faces and they want to continue their good campaign made last seasn.
Espanyol is a competitive team and they still haven’t lost since the start of the pre-season.
Our possibilities increase a lot if we lock Valencia with a double chance (to win or draw), reminding that the Ché side has 5 wins on the last 5 meetings against Espanyol.
I also expect to watch a match with 3 or less goals, something that happened in all of the last 9 meetings between the Catalans and the Valencians.
