In the second round of the Spanish La Liga, it’s home team Valladolid v Barcelona. The Spanish champions are firm favourites in this game and we believe that they will have no problems beating the home team by scoring at least three goals.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
Valladolid is a newly promoted side and it obviously lacks quality compared to Barcelona. At the start of the season, Barcelona scored three goals against Alaves; Messi scored twice. We believe that Barcelona can score at least three goals again, and 888sport offers great 1.74 odds for that to happen. If you want to take a bigger risk for better odds, you can try betting on Barcelona’s win with at least three goals difference, which is valued at 2.18 at 888sport.
Valladolid has returned to La Liga, and will surely be in the battle to avoid relegation. The squad lacks quality and depth. In the first round the team played away at Girona; the home team dominated and should have easily won with at least two goals difference. Valladolid owes a debt of gratitude to goalkeeper Masip who was brilliant. Ivi and Mayoral will miss the game, while Cotan and Luismi are questionable.
Barcelona opened the season with a comfortable 3-0 win against Alaves at home. Messi scored twice and showed that he is back on form after a quiet World Cup campaign; as we all know, when Messi plays his game, Barca easily scores goals. Barca will play with the best squad available.
Reasons For and Against The Tip:
✓ Barcelona is the much stronger side.
✓ Messi is on form; he scored twice in the first round 3-0 win against Alaves.
✓ Valladolid was lucky to finish 0-0 against Girona in the first round.
✘ Valladolid will defend heavily and they will be satisfied with minimal loss or even 2-0.
Tip: Barcelona to score over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.74 @ 888sport
