Valencia vs Alavés: In one of the encounters that will open up this Tuesday of matches in Spain, counting towards the Copa del Rey’s quarter-finals.
The local side Valencia and the visiting side Alavés will face off in Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium, on a match between two teams that have already met once this season, with that meeting finishing with a win for Valencia, on a La Liga match.
The home side is making a very positive campaign so far, being at the top of the league table and making great strides towards at least ensuring qualification for the European competitions,
with the arrival of Marcelino Garcia Toral giving the team the stability they needed, and they were lacking ever since Unai Emery left the coaching job some years ago.
The team is on a very positive streak of results, but that’s after they went through a period where their performances dropped significantly when compared to how they were playing since the beginning of the season,
and they are now with 3 consecutive wins and they haven’t lost for 4 matches.
As for the visiting side, after having reached the final of this competition last season, they will have to work hard to do it again this season, since they have a very tough challenge in this round.
The team, after a start of the season to forget, is coming off an excellent streak of results, climbing on the league table and also managing to advance in the Copa del Rey.
Valencia vs Alavés – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match between two teams who are in good form and with this being the 1st leg of this tie, I think this will be a close match, with both teams looking more to avoid conceding goals than to actually score them.
