Valencia vs Barcelona - La Liga, betting tips and match preview

Barcelona will try to end a miserable 3-match streak without a win on Sunday when they travel to Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium.

Valencia vs Barcelona - La Liga, betting tips, odds and match preview

This weekend’s La Liga action concludes with a bang at the Mestalla, as Valencia eye their first home win of the season against a Barcelona side looking to arrest a worrying winless league run.

Valencia and Barca are returning from heavy UEFA Champions League action with the visitors completing a thrilling 4-2 victory over Tottenham in midweek following a Lionel Messi masterclass, while Valencia deservedly earned a point against Manchester Utd at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Valencia have endured a difficult start to the season having amassed eight points from seven matches, while the defending Spanish La Liga champions have had to rely on goal difference to earn the top spot in the table ahead of Real Madrid.

Valencia sits in the 14th place with just 1 win from their opening 7 matches when they host the Catalan giants on Sunday, though Barcelona haven’t been on top form either – having lost once and drawn 3 matches.

Valencia face the difficult task in shutting out star striker Messi who shone for the Catalan team against Tottenham Hotspur, playing a vital role in two goals before scoring a brace himself.

Valencia have scored 5 goals in their opening 7 league matches - an alarming decrease of 10 from the corresponding fixtures last term (15). Barcelona are on a 18-match scoring streak in all competitions. Neither side have won by more than 1 goal in the last 10 top-flight encounters between the pair at the Mestalla.

Valencia vs FC Barcelona - Match Preview

Valverde risked dropping points when he benched Messi in the draw to Athletic Club but his decision paid off when his side completed the 4-2 victory at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday, and he will return to his first-choice starting lineup to gain the edge over rivals Real Madrid.

Valverde may decide to give summer signing Arthur a start against Valencia or opt with returning Ousmane Dembele to the starting lineup, who has already scored 5 goals this season.

The Brazilian arrival impressed at Wembley in midweek in his central midfield role, giving the opportunity for Philippe Coutinho to be deployed on the left flank to combine with Messi and Suarez.
