Valencia v Stoke City Europa League betting odds Valencia to win: 4/9 at Totesport Draw: 7/2 at Bet Victor Stoke to win: 8/1 at BetFair Unlike the other two remaining English sides in the competition, Man Utd and Man City, Stoke have a lot of work to do. They failed to take advantage of playing at home in the first leg, with Jon Walters missing a couple of good chances, which resulted in Spaniards Valencia came to down and walked away with a 1-0 win. So now Potters boss Tony Pulis has to pull out something special for his troops as they need to find a way to break down the strong Spaniards. Their failure to produce in the first leg, could have been the result of a run of poor form in the Premier League, where they haven’t won for five matches. However, they did turn in an FA Cup win over Crawley Town (with ten men too) on the weekend, just for a boost of confidence. But stepping up the level again to face quality like Valencia away from home is going to be a tough call for Stoke. Stoke hadn’t lost at home in Europe for eight matches until last week, and that seems to have been their advantage lost. This is the first time that Stoke have been this far in European competition and try as they might, working as they could, the chances were few and far between against Valencia, and scoring goals has been a problem for Stoke of late. Now they need at least two if they are going to take this fixture. Of course a 1-0 win for them would force extra time and penalties out in Spain, but that isn’t ideal. Stoke will want this done and they will have to show a bit more creativity to get the job done. Stoke do have a bit of advantage when it comes to set plays, from which they are strong, and their physical direct style does contrast greatly to Valencia’s slick passing, so Stoke need a high tempo, passionate encounter in Valencia v Stoke City Europa League betting if they are going to cause an upset. This tie is the first time that the two sides have come together, and is Stoke’s first encounter against Spanish opposition. Valencia are the experienced side in the fixture and have faced English opponents 32 times before. At home, Valencia have ran off seven wins, five draws and three defeats, while overall against English opposition, their record reads nine wins, fifteen draws and eight defeats. Just to further highlight the missed opportunity by Stoke in the first leg, that was the first time in eight attempts that Valencia had scored a victory over and English side. At home in Europe, Valencia haven’t lost now in six matches, and haven’t lost in six straight European matches, period. With them sitting a comfortable third  in Spain’s La Liga with the dangerous Soldado the main man up front for them, they don’t give a lot away at the back, and that is that why they are strong favourites to win the second leg and progress through to the last sixteen of the Europa League at Stoke’s expense.

Europa League Betting
Stoke v Valencia Europa League betting is one not to be forgotten about, as the spotlight falls on Man City and Man Utd in their Europa League adventures. But Stoke have done marvellously to get to the knockout stage, really taking the imitative in their home matches in the group. But the test will get seriously harder now as they host Valencia in the first leg of their round of 32 tie. Tony Pulis has done a great job with the Potters, but the wheels have come off their Premier League form after a purple patch of four straight wins at the end of November and into December. Since December 17th, Stoke have won just one of their next nine league matches, and with four straight defeats on the bounce, and with the goals having really dried up (just four in their last six EPL games), Stoke are in a bit of desperate slump at the moment. So perhaps a fixture away in the Europa League will be just the ticket to get their minds off things. Stoke qualified safely from Group E in second place behind Besiktas, with three wins, two draws and one defeat. Stoke went two and drew one of those matches at the Britannia Stadium, making it a bit of a fortress for opposition. Stoke v Valencia Europa League betting granted will see the English side go as underdogs against the more experienced Valencia, who dropped out of the Champions League, but if the Potters can secure a battling win in the first leg, taking advantage of home turf, then they are the type of side who could grind out a gritty away win. But the key to this will be all about keeping Valencia off the score sheet on Thursday night. Stoke actually are undefeated in all seven of their European home fixtures, and this is the first time they have been in the knockout stage of European competition. A defeat against Besiktas on Match Day six saw Stoke end an eleven match European unbeaten streak. Stoke v Valencia Europa League betting will be a war of attrition for the English side, and there is a glimmer of hope for them when you look at their oppositions’ European record against English sides.

Valencia have already been to England in Europe this season, losing 3-0 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the Champions League group stage. Their third place finish in the group sent the Spaniards down to the Europa League and their away form in England is pretty terrible. Out of fifteen matches in England, Valencia have won just once, and they haven’t recorded a victory against an English side anywhere in their last eight meetings again one. They have suffered four defeats and four draws again English opposition in their last eight matches. Coach Unai Emery hasn’t triumphed over English opposition in four attempts now. There is more news here in Valencia’s form which may give Potters fans even more hope of a big result. Valencia haven’t scored a victory in their last six away matches in Europe, splitting those six matches evenly between draws and defeats. They are a strong side though, yet just can’t get it together in Europe for some reason at the moment. The Spaniards are third in La Liga, eight points behind second placed Barcelona, and with a win on the weekend against Sporting Gijon, they broke a run of five domestic matches without a win. Striker Soldado will have to be watched out for because of his finishing power, and while Valencia will be fancied more to come in and do a smash and grab raid, they aren’t in the greatest form themselves and that should give Stoke a glimmer of hope. Stoke really could use Peter Crouch to their advantage against the Spanish back line, but Crouch hasn’t scored in his five matches against Spanish opposition. Stoke v Valencia Europa League betting would be a good time to start. This is the first time the two sides have met.
