Real Betis v Valencia Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 15th September 2013

Real Betis look in for a very difficult season from what they have shown so far in their opening three games and this match against Valencia on sunday night will not be a game that anyone involved in the club will be looking forward too.

2-1 defeats in their opening two games of the season came against Real Madrid and Celta Vigo and although they did secure their first point of the season last time out in a 0-0 draw against Espanyol, not many people will expect their points tally to increase after this one as Valencia really need to win this game if they are to keep track on the big teams above them.

The visitors were rather unlucky last time out when going down 2-3 at home against Barcelona as despite being 0-3 after 41mins courtesy of a Lionel Messi hatrick, Miroslav Djuki’s side showed real character with a spirited fight back which saw veteran striker Helder Postiga score twice right on half time to give his side a chance come the second half.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be and Barcelona held on to their 2-3 lead and secured another 3pts to add to their total, but that result will certainly have restored a great deal of confidence to the players after their 3-1 defeat away against Espanyol and they will certainly be up for this game come sunday night.

Real Betis v Valencia Team News

Real Betis Team News:

Damien Perquis and Eder Vilarchao are the only two casualties for coach Pepe Mel to contend with as both players continue to receive treatment for respective injuries. Jorge Molina will lead the attack up front in a favoured 4-2-3-1 formation with support coming from Joan Verdu, Juan Carlos and Cedric.

Valencia Team News:

Valencia coach Miroslav Djuki has no suspensions or injury problems to worry about and will likely play his strongest side in a bid to secure maximum points from this game in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Helder Postiga leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from the likes of Canales, Banega and Pabon.

Who Has The Advantage?

Sunday night’s match between the two clubs will become the 35th meeting of which Real Betis have won 7, Valencia have won 21 and there has been 6 draws which shows Valencia with a huge advantage.

The last five meetings however have been a lot closer with Real Betis having won 2 and Valencia having won the other 3, surprisingly there has been no draws during these games and based on both sides poor start to the season a draw could be due.

Average Goals Per Game?

87 goals have been scored during the previous 34 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.55 which suggests this game might see a couple of goals go in on sunday night in front of the Sky Sports Camera’s.

Real Betis v Valencia Recent Form

Real Betis: L W L W D

Valencia: W W W L L

Valencia have a slight advantage on the recent form having managed to secure three victories from their last five matches played. Real Betis have managed two victories from their last five matches played one of which included a 6-0 thumping of Jablonec in the second leg Europa League play off.

Real Betis v Valencia Match Betting Odds Market.

Real Betis have had a very disappointing start to their new season and are yet to win a game, so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers offering up a best price of 17/10 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) for the hosts to record to their first win of the season.

The Draw has not been a result that has featured often when these two clubs have met each other in the past and with both clubs having had such a poor start to their season the draw does make genuine appeal at a current best price of 12/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Valencia showed real character coming from three goals down against Barcelona last time out, but they do seem to struggle away from home and with Real Betis desperate to pick up their first win of the season, the visitors could be in for a difficult game here so their current best price of 7/4 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) although tempting, looks best left alone until they find some consistency.

Real Betis v Valencia Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Neither side will want to lose this game and I can see a real battle ensue and this should lead the game to become a bit dirty and fiesty with the referee having no option but to hand out a number of yellow cards and with previous encounters between the two sides having seen plenty of cards brandished the bookings market certainly looks well worth an interest here.

The goal stats suggest maybe a couple of goals to be scored so the goals market is another option when looking for a betting opportunity on this game, but I am going to risk taking the draw here as with both sides desperate for points this one could very well end up all square come the full time whistle.
