Espanyol vs Valencia Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Espanyol would be reasonably happy after opening the campaign with a draw against Celta de Vigo. A trip to the Balaidos is not easy for many teams and Espanyol picked up only four away wins last season. Valencia were held to a draw by Atletico Madrid at home, but the good times have certainly returned to the Mestalla. Marcelino has had some crucial changes in the squad with the likes of Simone Zaza leaving to be replaced by Michy Batshuayi of Chelsea. Valencia will have to undergo a lot of energy management of the season due to their participation in three competitions. After winning five consecutive games against Espanyol, I would go with a win for Valencia.

Espanyol’s biggest concern is the absence of Gerard Moreno, who contributed almost 50% of the goals last season. The Catalan outfit scored their first goal of the campaign through Mario Hermoso, but goals are likely to be on the lower side. I would under 2.5 goals.

Valencia win – 6/4

Total goals under 2.5 – 3/4

Espanyol saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played
