Valencia Prediction

Valencia will be in confident mood ahead of this important first leg tie with Krasnodar having recorded back-to-back wins on the Spanish domestic scene after wins against Real Betis in the Copa del Rey and Athletic Bilboa in La Liga- with both wins being achieved on home turf, so Valencia will be going for a hat-trick of home wins here this evening.

Overall, Valencia are unbeaten in their last 11 matches overall in all competitions which includes away and home wins over the Scottish champions Celtic, in 2-0 and 1-0 wins respectively in the previous round of 32 in the Europa League.

Switching to their form in the Europa League and you’ll find that Valencia have won six of their last seven matches overall, while at home, the hosts have racked up six straight wins in this competition prior to tonight’s clash with wins against Ludogorets, Basel, Sevilla, Rapid Vienna, Athletic Bilbao and Celtic.

Midfielder Parejo (6 goals) along with forwards Rodrigo (5 goals) and Gameiro (4 goals) look the most likely to score for the hosts.


Key-Facts – Valencia v Krasnodar

  • Valencia are unbeaten in their last 11 matches in all competitions
  • Valencia are unbeaten in their last 9 home matches in the Europa League
  • Krasnodar have won just 2 of their last 10 away matches in the Europa League


Krasnodar Prediction

Krasnodar sneaked their way past German side Bayer Leverkusen in the previous round of 32 thanks to the away-goal rule following a first leg 0-0 stalemate in Russia, but then scoring in the 1-1 draw in the second leg in Germany to secure their place in this round of 16.

The Russian club are without a win though from their last four matches in all competitions after the two draws with Bayer Leverkusen, along with a 1-0 Russian cup defeat away at Rostov and another draw with Spartak Moscow in the domestic Premier League on the weekend.

Recent results in the Europa League have been more modest too as the visitors have managed just two wins in this competition from their last six matches overall, which were against Standard Liege and Akhisarspor, both of which were recorded at their Stadion FK Krasnodar.

Away from home, Krasnodar have registered just two wins out of their last 10 ties on their travels, being victories at Lyngby and Akhisarspor, but six defeats within this poor 10-match sequence suggests Krasnodar could struggle against Valencia here.

Betting Tips Verdict

With 5 clean sheets from their last 9 home matches in this competition, Valencia look to be in the box seat at home and could also cover the -1 asian handicap line too.
