SPAIN: LaLiga – Round 11
Valencia 0-1 Girona
TIPS: Over 1.5 Goals | Odds: 1.38 | Result: 0:1 LOST
|Valencia will hope to finally deliver their fans a first La Liga (LL) home win of the season as they welcome Girona, a side that have just ended a five-game winless run (D3, L2) after a 2-1 home victory over Rayo last weekend.
|Having drawn an astounding 80% of their league games so far, Valencia have shared the points on more occasions this league season (eight) than they did throughout last season (seven). However the hosts’ midweek 2-1 win at Ebro in the Copa del Rey may be a first step to returning to winning ways.
|Another concern for the ‘Chés’ will be a lack of goals – just four in five home fixtures, and seven in LL overall. In fact Valencia’s four main forwards have scored only four league goals combined so far.
|Unbeaten on the road in LL (W1, D3), Girona will travel to Estadio de Mestalla confident of their away abilities. The Catalan side have also managed to keep a clean sheet in two of their four away league matches.
|Valencia have won the only two encounters between these sides, a 1-0 away victory and a 2-1 home win, both during last season’s LL campaign.
|Players to watch: After getting a goal on matchday one, Rodrigo Moreno has failed to find the net since – the Valencia forward had six goals by this stage last season.
|With a brace last weekend against Rayo, Cristian Portu will hope to replicate the goal he scored for Girona in last season’s fixture here.
|Stat attack: Just one of Valencia’s ten league games this season have produced over 2.5 goals.
|However five of Girona’s ten league fixtures have ended with over 2.5 goals.
|Four of the five LL teams that have visited the Mestalla this season have netted exactly one goal.
