After a few months of genuine uncertainty, we are starting to see the world of soccer awake from its slumber. The Bundesliga was the first to come back, with their season now almost complete. The great news for soccer fans, though, is that the Serie A, La Liga, and English Premier League are all back this week, so we have plenty to wager on. What makes this news even better is that we have games going every single day, and all played at different times, so you can have rolling wagers going throughout the day for the next few weeks. Let’s jump right into action and have a closer look at this Valencia Vs Real Madrid affair so you can place your bets against their LaLiga odds.
Valencia Vs Real Madrid Game Info
We are going to try and cover as much of the action as possible, but for this piece we are going to turn to La Liga, which is now heading into its second round since returning. The battle for the title is a good one, with Barcelona leading Real Madrid by 2 points. Madrid will be back in action on Thursday afternoon when they host Valencia in what should be a tough match for them. Madrid come into this game favored by 1 ½, with the goal total set at 3.
Why bet on Real Madrid
Real Madrid had a successful return to action over the weekend, although they will be a little concerned that they did not really put in a full shift. They went into the half-time break with a 3-0 lead over Eibar, but they then tool their foot of the gas and eventually won 3-1. They cannot afford the same type of letdown against a team like Valencia, who are battling to land themselves a European spot for next season. With Barcelona winning comfortably, Madrid remain 2 points out of the top spot, sporting 59 points from a 17-8-3 record. While they are at home here, the game will be played at their training facility while the San Bernabeu undergoes renovations. At home, Real Madrid are 10-4-0, scoring 30 times and surrendering just 10 goals.
Why bet on CF Valencia
The final 10 games of the season are going to be huge for Valencia, as they still have a legitimate shot at a Champions League place. Right now, they are down in 7th, which leaves them out of the European places, but they are just 3 points out of a Europa League spot and just 4 back of the final Champions League slot. You do not have to be a genus to figure out the more coveted of those two competitions. Valencia returned with what has to be considered a disappointing 1-1 result at home to Levante. They need to pick up points at home, as their 3-3-7 road record is simply not good enough. In those 13 games, they have managed just 15 goals, while surrendering 27. They tied 1-1 with Madrid earlier this season, while losing 3-1 to them in the Spanish Super Cup.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Real Madrid were in a poor run of form before the lockdown, and while they had a comfortable win on their return, they still did not look particularly convincing. I am taking Madrid to win, but I think it will be a close one.
