Valencia 7/1 to beat Espanyol 2-1
Coral’s pick for our bet of the day on Saturday comes from Valencia and Espanyol’s La Liga battle, which takes place at 19:30 GMT.
Take sensational odds of 7/1 for the Bats to run out 2-1 victors at the Mestalla Stadium, and read on to find out why…
Valencia may be in a run of bad form, having not won under new boss Gary Neville in La Liga, but they go up next against the one team that have been equally as poor, Espanyol.
The Catalan club have lost five of their last seven Spanish top-flight fixtures, drawing the other two, and have also conceded 11 in their previous two, against Real Madrid and Real Sociedad.
Gary Neville’s men, meanwhile, have scored exactly two goals in three of their last seven in La Liga, and so look likely to do so again.
Bats love beating Espanyol 2-1 at Mestalla
One key stat to back up this brilliant bet, is that Valencia have beaten Espanyol 2-1 in five of their past eight meetings on home soil in all competitions, which makes these odds all the more enticing.
The Bats also currently sit three places and three points above their upcoming visitors, which already gives them a head-start in mind as well as position.
On top of that, they have really started to show signs that they are finally on the up, reaching the Copa del Rey semi-finals and almost beating another Catalan club Barcelona in the second leg.
So, what are you waiting for Coral punters? Snap up these 7/1 odds on Valencia beating Espanyol 2-1 to reap rewards.
