A striking match in this day of Sunday is the one held by Valencia and Espanyol for a new date of the Santander League.
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite this time, as the two teams are able to alternate the ball and neutralize in the midfield. For this reason and considering that the squad “che” is not solid in Mestalla, we advise you to play a few euros to the pure tie. Remember that the “parakeets” before the thrashing suffered against Barcelona a few weeks ago, had managed to add 8 games without losing as a visitor (League and Cup).
Take into account that Valencia played Celta in Balaídos for the Copa del Rey (defeat 2-1). In the Spanish tournament tied 3-3 against Osasuna as a visitor in Pamplona, leaving 2 valuable points in their fight to get away from the low (triumph 2-3 partial to few seconds for the final whistle, failing a penalty 5 ‘minutes before) . For these days, has 13 units in the table, achieving 3 of the last 15 disputed.
On the other hand, do not forget that the “che” box has added unimpressive results in its field, product of 1 victory, 2 equalities and 4 falls in total (11 goals scored and 16 conceded on its fence). He has not won for the last 4 games in Mestalla, losing the last two (1-1 draw against Granada and parity 2-2 against Málaga).
Continuing with the analysis you must know that Espanyol comes from equaling 1-1 against Deportivo as a local for the Spanish tournament, leaving 2 important points in their fight to keep climbing positions in the general table. Currently it is in the eleventh position with 23 points, being far from direct descent. Despite not having won his last two league games, he remains a competitive and complicated rival to overcome.
Now to finish we tell you that the “parakeets” have added diverse results playing away from home, product of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 drops in total (10 goals in favor and 12 ceded on your fence). Before losing the Catalan derby had recorded 8 exits without losing between the Spanish tournament and the Glass of the King (4 victories and 4 equalities).
Against this background I play for equality because of the following reasons: First because the two teams can be neutralized throughout the 90 minutes of play, being possible to alternate possession and goal situations. Second because the “che” box has not been reliable acting as a local in Mestalla, lacking in defensive solidity. And thirdly because Espanyol, despite having lost their last outing to Barcelona, showed a good performance as a visitor not to lose in their previous 8 outings between League and Cup. Faced with this reality, we believe that the match can finish 1-1 or 2 -2 after the final whistle.
