Alavés vs Valencia: In one of this Wednesday’s matches in Spain, counting towards the 2nd leg of the Copa del Rey’s quarter-finals
The local side Alavés and the visiting side Valencia face off in the Basque Country, at the Mendizorrotza Stadium, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 3rd time this season, with both of the previous encounters finishing with 2-1 wins for Valencia.
The home side is making a campaign with some ups & downs, not following up on their good campaign last season.
Where they were one of the most consistent teams in La Liga and were also able to reach the Copa del Rey’s final, only losing against a much more capable Barcelona.
This season, the team is effectively on a rough fight to avoid relegation, although they still have chances to advance in this Copa del Rey, only needing a win without conceding goals against Marcelino Garcia Toral’s team.
As for Valencia, they are making a very positive campaign, especially if we compare it to their most recent seasons of the Valencian team.
That was no longer considered to be a top team from Spanish football, being in 3rd place of La Liga and having everything to advance onto the Copa del Rey’s semi-finals.
The team is coming off a positive streak of results, only failing to win 1 of their last 5 matches.
Alavés vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match where it will be decided which team advances onto the semi-finals of this competition.
I believe we will witness a low-scoring affair and closer in terms of score line, with less goals and more defensive ability from both sides.
