Our "Prediction Wizard" will calculate, based on the current available betting odds, the implicit winning percentages for the possible outcomes in a match. This will be updated as soon as we fetch the odds from the betting sites and keep updating until the match is finished.
Valencia has started the La Liga season 2021-22 much better and its fans are beginning to hope for a turnaround of sorts. It has one win and a draw in its two matches in the La Liga this season. On the other hand, Alaves has been very disappointing with two losses in two matches. While Alaves has had a decent amount of success against Valencia in the last few seasons, we expect this clash to be a tough one for them. Neither team has reported any injuries or fitness worries ahead of this clash and the managers will have a full roster to pick from.
La Liga match prediction and football betting tips for Valencia CF vs Deportivo Alaves, La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Mestalla, Valencia on the 27th of August 2021.
We think the smart choice here is going to be Valencia or Draw. This does reduce the odds quite significantly, though, and so for those willing to take a bit of risk to improve their returns, picking Valencia is not a bad choice at all. The biggest advantage that Valencia has is a defense that is working very well right now. It has just given up three goals in its previous five matches and that means it is going to be very tough to beat for a struggling Alaves team. Also, even though goal-scoring has been difficult for Valencia, it did manage to take 18 shots on goal (seven of them on target) in the previous match and showed some signs of improvement.
Bet on Valencia to win.
We think this contest between Valencia and Alaves is not going to be very free-flowing or full of goals. It is going to be gritty with two teams struggling for attacking fluency going at each other. We do believe that getting past Valencia's defense is not going to be easy for Alaves and we are very happy to take the 'Under' for this bet.
The reason why we recommend this bet is because we don't think this match is going to be similar to the contests we have seen between Valencia and Alaves in the past few seasons. Valencia has improved defensively while Alaves has scored just one goal in its previous three matches. A side low on confidence could really struggle especially with a dismal away record hanging on its head.
A hard-fought 1-0 win for Valencia is not hard to see at all right now.
