RCD Espanyol Barcelona vs Valencia CF Preview & Analysis

Espanyol will be hosting Valencia for an inconsequential game this Saturday, as La Liga 2021-22 nears its end.

Playing its first season after being promoted from the Segunda Division, the lesser-known Catalan club has done well to earn 40 points from the 36 matches it has played so far this season. However, it is winless in its last 5 matches, including a loss in its latest outing. Espanyol visited the Mendizorrotza Stadium to face hosts Alaves and was going neck and neck when the first half ended, with the scoreboard reading 1-1.

However, a goal in the 56th minute by Escalante put the hosts ahead, and gave them 3 important points, as they fight to bring themselves out of the bottom 3. Espanyol themselves are 7 points clear of the relegation zone, and with their seat in the next year’s primary league fixed, are expected to play fearlessly when they take on the field.

Valencia has hit some rough form in the last couple of months, which saw it lose the Copa del Rey finals to Real Betis in a penalty shootout. Valencia is also winless in its last 7 top-flight matches but has played well enough in the first half of the season to keep itself within the top half of the points table.

It leads 11th placed Celta Vigo by just 1 point, and Rayo Vallecano, who has played 1 game less, by 2 points. Valencia hosted Real Betis for its latest match and was thrashed 3-0 at home. Both the teams held their fort in the first half, which ended goallessly. But Valencia could not keep pace with the attack in the second half, and ultimately conceded 3 goals, with 2 of them coming in the final minutes of the match.

While not in the danger of being relegated, Valencia will be looking to win both of its upcoming games in order to earn a respectable finish.

RCD Espanyol Barcelona vs Valencia CF Betting Tips

Despite not having much bearing on the final table, this game promises to be an engaging watch as both the teams vie for some brownie points.

Both the teams have fully fit squads to choose from, and that should make the game even more interesting.

Given the recent track record of both the teams, as well as the strength of the squads, we predict that neither of them enjoys a significant advantage over the others, and the game should end with an equal score.

Bet on a draw.
