Valencia vs Barcelona Betting Tips

Valencia are hosting Barcelona at the Mestalla in Valencia on the 3rd of May 2021 Monday at 00:30 IST. The Barca juggernaut this season had a surprise slump at home against Getafe this week, while Valencia are in the middle of another major slump which has them not having won in the last five matches. 

Valencia Form & Team News

Valencia are in the 14th position of the La Liga season this year. They have played 33 games while winning just eight games. In the process, they have lost 13 games and drawn 12 matches so far this season. At home, they have a comparatively better record given they have won six games while losing just three games. They have happened to play 16 home games so far out of which we can include seven draws in it as well. Valencia are in the middle of a winless streak for the past five matches. They have lost two games and drawn a couple in these five matches. Valencia should look to finish this season on a high and a win here against the Catalan Giants would be the best possible start to that process. 

There are no major injury or suspension blows to Valencia which means Javi Gracia has a full team to choose from for the next game. Talking about the manager, Gracia has to keep the morale of the team high after disappointing results in the recent matches for the side from Valencia. Carlos Soler is the top goal-scorer for Valencia this season with eight goals to his name so far. Soler also has five assists too making him the highest assist provider as well. Guedes, Gomez, Vallejo and Gaya have all been in a terrific nick and the numbers of these players speak the rest.  

Barcelona Form & Team News

Former Champions Barcelona is the third-ranked side in the La Liga presently with 71 points from 33 games until now. They have managed to win on 22 occasions while losing six games. They have also drawn five games, and also have netted the maximum number of goals this season with 77 strikes in the back of the net. Playing away, their record is second to just Real Madrid. Barca have won the most number of away games in La Liga this season. They were on course for a first-place finish after the Getafe game given for a win but happened to slip into a defeat which has put the La Masia in a spot of bother. They now have to win all the remaining games while also have to get some results going in their way. 

Martin Braithwaite, Ansu Fati, and Coutinho are the three players likely to miss out on the next game. Koeman is likely to stick back to his winning formula since the experiment in the last game against Getafe didn’t really work out pretty well. He is likely to make some changes to the squad from the last game. The Mercurial Lionel Messi has been doing whatever was asked of him even at such senior-most level at the Barcan side. The young players have stepped up big time this season and they would really like to go all in the remaining five games and try to finish the season in the best possible way.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Barcelona have shown intent this season particularly after defeats, they have shown that they have the mettle to come back. Valencia on the other hand have a very bad streak to break and that is they have not won a game in five straight matches now. Barca are most likely to end up on the winning side with goals available in plenty. 

Tip 1: Total Goals over 3.5

Three of the last four matches that Valencia have played across competitions have had the total goals to be over 3.5. While playing at home, Valencia have had one of their last two matches where the total goals have been over 3.5. In the la Liga, Valencia have three of the last four matches where the condition was satisfied. In the case of Barcelona, two of the last four matches played across competitions, have had the total goals to be over 3.5. Playing away, two of their last four games have also had the total goals to be over 3.5. In their last three head to head matches in La Liga, they have two games that had the total goals to be over 2.5. So it’s quite likely the match will have over 3.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be over 3.5 is 2.02.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

In the last six matches played by Valencia across competitions, all six have had both teams scoring. While playing at home, all four of the last four matches Valencia have played across competitions have had both teams scoring. In La Liga, Valencia had all five of the last five matches where both teams scored. Four of the last five matches Barcelona have been part of have had the above condition being satisfied. In four of the last five matches played away by Barcelona, they have had condition satisfied. In La Liga this season, all four of the last four matches Barcelona was part of have turned out to have both teams scoring. Six of the last seven head to head matches between the two sides also had yielded the condition as mentioned above, so it’s most likely both teams might end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.61


Barcelona are on the back of a surprise defeat at the hands of Getafe while Valencia have not won in their last five matches. Barca can still go on to win the title from here given they win all their remaining games and some other results go their way, Valencia can be the party spoilers here. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Total Goals over 3.5 @2.02
  2. Both teams to score @ 1.61
