Granada vs Valencia
Spanish La Liga
Date: 30 December 2020, Wednesday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes (Granada).

Granada will be keen to get back to winning ways when they welcome Valencia for the La Liga clash on Wednesday.

A 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid handed them their first defeat in 6 matches across all competitions just before Christmas. The team had won back to back La Liga games and 3 across all competitions before that.

They come to this match sitting at 7th in the table, 5 points behind Barcelona.

Valencia on the other hand are relegation bound and the narrow 1-0 defeat at Sevilla in the previous round pushed them down to 16th on the log. Their gap with the drop zone is 1 point, but this could get nullified depending on the Cadiz vs Valladolid result on Tuesday.

The visitors haven’t won a league game since November, the last 6 saw 4 draws and 2 losses.

Granada vs Valencia Head-to-head

Valencia used to dominate in this head-to-head duel as they were unbeaten across all competitions until 2020, a streak of 15 matches with 13 wins and 2 draws.

However this changed when they met in the Copa del Rey in February, the El Grana edged a rare win courtesy of two goals by Roberto Soldado, including the winner deep into the injury time.

This was followed by another meeting at the Nuevo Los Cármenes, ended in a 2-2 stalemate.

Both teams have scored in 5 of their last 6 meetings across all competitions.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of the last 8.

Granada vs Valencia Betting Tips

On paper, Granada are the favourites to win here, but they are missing some key players like Darwin Machis and Luis Milla. Valencia, even though way below their usual best, can be a nuisance at times and this is a fixture they dominated over the past two decades.

To be on the safe side, we will back the draw no bet for the hosts.

Coming to goal market, Granada have conceded in 4 of their last 5 home games and there is little doubt about what this team can offer in the attacking front. With each of Valencia’s last 4 LaLiga games also seeing goals at both ends, the both teams to score in the match make into the list of decent alternate.
