Valencia Prediction – Can Valencia make home advantage count?

Valencia sit level on 7 points apiece with both Ajax and Chelsea ahead of this crucial Matchday 5 clash with Chelsea as the hosts look to make home advantage count at their Estadio de Mestalla with one last push to achieve a top two finish.

The Spanish side secured what could prove to be a valuable 1-0 win away at Chelsea on Matchday 1 and although they lost 3-0 at home to Ajax and drew 1-1 away at Lille, Valencia bounced back in emphatic style to record a heavy 4-1 home win against Lille in the corresponding fixture on home soil to keep their knockout dreams alive.

The next two matches are pivotal to Valencia’s knockout stage ambitions in the Champions League, so they’ll view this clash with Chelsea as their best chance to progress, particularly given that they have to travel to Ajax in the last match in Group H.

With Valencia’s hopes hanging in the balance, the goals markets look the best option here and with 7 of Valencia’s last 9 home ties resulting in over 2.5 goals, this looks to be vindicated.

Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea avoid defeat?

If they manage to do so, Frank Lampard’s team will take a big step towards qualifying for the knockout rounds of the Champions League as their final match in Group H will be against the bottom side, Lille, at Stamford Bridge.

After a disappointing start to this season’s Champions League campaign which ended in a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to tonight’s opponents, Valencia, Chelsea have since staged a great recovery by recording back-to-back wins against Lille 2-1 and 1-0 at Ajax, both results coming away from home.

An entertaining 4-4 draw at home with Ajax on Matchday 4 saw Chelsea grab a seemingly impossible point after they trailed the Dutch champions 4-1 with just over half an hour remaining of the 2nd half – and it’s these sort of results which really boosts a team’s morale.

Being away from home in this fixture may just suit Chelsea as well with their counter-attacking style, and whilst the straight win may be ambitious, the prospect of goals is always apparent with Lampard’s Chelsea outfit as 9 of their last 10 away matches in all competitions has resulted in over 2.5 goals scored.


Key-Facts – Valencia vs Chelsea

  • 7 of Valencia’s last 9 home ties have resulted in over 2.5 goals in the CL
  • 9 of Chelsea’s last 10 away matches in all competitions have been over 2.5 goals
  • Chelsea have scored in 9 of their last 10 away matches in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

The result could go either way tonight but there should be a few goals regardless of the outcome!
