Paco Jemez has a tough test on his hands once again, ahead of our Las Palmas vs Valencia preview and football odds, as he must try and find a way to beat a side that knocked his team out of the Copa del Rey by a 5-1 aggregate scoreline recently.
Las Palmas are always competitive and carry a goal threat when they play at home, but they don’t appear to be on the level required to compete with a hardworking and organised team such as Valencia.
Our Las Palmas vs Valencia predictions revolve around the home team being unable to put in any solid defensive performances, which makes backing goals the best way to go in our La Liga predictions for the weekend.
Los Che have been better at Mestalla than they have on the road this season, but after a recent 4-0 win over Las Palmas in the cup, they should have their tails up and smell blood.
Valencia are not short of strikers that are scoring goals this season, with Marcelino’s team always carrying a considerable threat on the counter-attack. Las Palmas, however, are similarly a threat when they play in Gran Canaria. They’ve hit the back of the ent in four of their last five LaLiga home fixtures.
The away side are generally solid defensively, but the recent Copa del Rey game between these two sides showed that the likes of Jonathan Viera and Jonathan Calleri are more than capable of doing some damage. Betfair offers the best value on there being both teams on the scoresheet at full time.
The away side have only failed to score on the road in the league in just one fixture this season, which should mean that they have enough in the tank to do some serious damage to Jemez’s latest side when Saturday evening comes around.
Our Las Palmas vs Valencia bets back this to be an exciting game, with there likely to be plenty of goals involved. Las Palmas are a danger on their own patch, and Valencia showed early this month that they can break down Jemez’s lines when they demolished the Canaries 4-0 at Mestalla.
There have been over three goals in Valencia’s visits to Ipurua, Mendizorroza, Benito Villamarin, Anoeta and Santiago Bernabeu this season, and Marcelino’s side have shown that they counter-attacking style could only be thwarted by Getafe at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Our Las Palmas vs Valencia betting tips suggest that although the hosts should be confident that they can find a gap to exploit in the away side’s back line, they should be on the end of some considerable flak themselves. Valencia have got big targets to hit and Las Palmas stand in their way.
