Valencia v Atl. Madrid - La Liga, betting tips and match preview

Atletico Madrid make the trip to the Mestalla to play Valencia in the standout fixture from the opening weekend of the 2018/19 La Liga season.

Valencia v Atl. Madrid - La Liga, betting tips, odds and match preview

This is the biggest match of the opening weekend in the Spanish La Liga 2018/2019.

Valencia and Atletico finished 4th and 2nd last season and they will both be looking to challenge the stranglehold of Barcelona and Real Madrid and this match could show who is ready for a tilt at the LaLiga title.

Atletico’s Super Cup win has set down a marker already and judging by how good their summer business has been they look more prepared than their hosts to challenge for the league title.

Diego Simeone’s team did not sell any of their top players and they also added Thomas Lemar and Rodri both of whom should get their Spanish LaLiga debut in this match.

Valencia’s challenge in this campaign is to be able to replicate the domestic success they had last season while also getting a good run in the UEFA Champions League.

Valencia’s run in the latter has been helped by the fact that they will not be going through the qualifiers; however, this match is still a very tough opening fixture for them.

Valencia has signed Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea and if the Belgian replicates the form he showed during his 4 month stint with Borussia Dortmund last season, they could have a star man on their hands.

Atletico Madrid have won 5 of the last 6 meetings between these clubs, and the 2 meetings between them last season produced just 1 goal, scored by Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitana.

Bookmakers favour Atletico Madrid to come out on top however the odds are extremely tight and many will fancy Valencia at the Mestalla.

Valencia have failed to score in their past 4 league encounters with Atletico Madrid, conceding 6 goals.

Atletico Madrid conceded just 0.73 goals per match away from home in LaLiga last season.

None of the last 15 meetings between these two teams in all competitions have seen over 4.5 goals.

Valencia have won 6 of the last 10 opening day matches.
