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. Stoke City v Valencia Europa League betting odds Stoke to win: 2/1 at Bet Victor Draw: 23/10 at Totesport Valencia to win: 13/8 at William Hill Online bookmaker Ladbrokes have a Stoke v Valencia Europa League betting promotion running for Thursday night’s match. If Stoke forward Peter Crouch scores in the match at anytime, then Ladbrokes will refund all losing First Goalscorer bets placed on the match. So there is a nice bit of Stoke v Valencia Europa League First Goalscorer betting coverage from the popular bookie. What’s on offer in the market? Well Valencia’s Roberto Soldado is favourite at 11/2, with Aritz Aduriz just behind at 13/2. Stoke’s Peter Crouch and Jon Walters are at 6/1 to open the scoring. Online bookmaker Ladbrokes offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £50, giving you some great free betting cash to enjoy. 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.

Chelsea v Valencia Champions League Betting Odds & Preview – 06.12.11

Chelsea - Andre Villas Boas
Chelsea v Valencia Champions League betting sees the Blues with their last chance to make it into the last sixteen of the Champions League. With no win in their last two matches, following a draw against Genk and then a disastrous defeat in Germany against Bayer Leverkusen, Andre Villas Boas’s men are basically in a one match shoot out now with Valencia on Tuesday night to secure progress. The winner of Chelsea v Valencia betting goes through, while the loses goes out, it is all as simple as that. If there is a score draw at Stamford Bridge, then it is Valencia who will go through, while a goal less draw would suit Chelsea, as long as group leaders Bayer Leverkusen lose on Tuesday against Genk. While there are permutations going on, the basic upshot is that Chelsea need to win. That is the attitude with which they need to go in with, and that is what they need to do. Chelsea’s form hasn’t been great of late at Stamford Bridge, but they actually played a very powerful game at Newcastle in the Premier League winner on the weekend, and played in a manner in which we haven’t seen for the last half dozen matches or so. When the two met on Match Day Two in the Champions League, Frank Lampard had put Chelsea ahead until a moment of madness from Salomon Kalou gave Valencia a late penalty through which they equalised. That was a value two points dropped for Chelsea away from home which may now come back to haunt them. With Valencia finally waking up and thumping Genk 7-0 on Match Day five, Chelsea need to keep things tight and find a way to break down the Spaniards. Fortunately for the Blues, while Nicolas Anelka has handed in a transfer request, and Fernando Torres still looks lost, Didier Drogba is starting to look like his old self a little bit more, and the speed of Daniel Sturridge is still getting him in amongst the goals, so there is some hope for Chelsea here. If the Blues don’t make it through, it will be the first time since the 2002/03 which they will have failed to reach the knockout stage of the tournament. The two sides have met twice before at Stamford Bridge, and both times the matches ended in a draw, the most recent a meeting in the 2006/07 Champions League which produced a 1-1 draw, and this time around that would not be good enough for Chelsea. Chelsea do have a pretty good home record against Spanish sides, having not lost in their last twelve home fixtures against teams from Spain, and the Blues hold a W7 D4 L1 record at the Bridge. The Blues have won both of their home matches in the Champions League group stage so far this season, a 2-0 win over Leverkusen and a 5-0 thumping of Genk. That is in stark contrast to their away form, where they drew two and lost one. Valencia’s romp against Genk, which included a hat trick for Roberto Soldado in less than half an hour means that they are the top scorers in the group. Their stats going forward in the Champions League group stage are pretty evenly matched with Chelsea's, the Blues have just had a handful more shots on and off target in total. So they should be evenly matched as Valencia are a good side. They are currently third in La Liga, just four points behind Barcelona with a game in hand over the Catalans, and Roberto Soldado is their main weapon, with nine league goals to his name. The Chelsea back line really need to find a way to keep him quiet, because he has the potential to dump the Blues out of the Champions League. So it is going to be a tense night at Stamford Bridge and the longer the game stays goal less the more tension will be filtering down onto the pitch. Chelsea can win this match though, they are good enough, but it is not going to be romp and you can only really see them winning by a one goal margin. Chelsea to win by a 1 Goal Margin is priced well at 11/4 with Ladbrokes. The important thing to remember here for your Chelsea v Valencia Champions League betting, is that the survival of the Spaniards in the competition is also on the line and they do have the advantage of being happy enough to walk away with just a score draw. Valencia's record on the road so far in the Champions League has resulted in a 0-0 draw at Genk and a 2-1 defeat against Leverkusen. The same outcome as Chelsea’s road trips to those two. So it is all down to the wire now for Andre Villas Boas and his first season in charge of trying to get owner Roman Abramovich that much coveted Champions League title. They are going to need the influence of Didier Drogba on the night, who is 5/1 at Bet365 in the First Goalscorer Market, while the ever dangerous Soldado is priced at 7/1 with Paddy Power.

Chelsea v Valencia Champions League Betting Odds

Chelsea Fernando Torres
Valencia v Chelsea Champions League betting sees Blues summer signing Juan Mata meet up again with the club he moved to Stamford Bridge from. Mata has been one of the bright sparks of Chelsea’s season so far, his passing, vision and finishing have been a big boon to boss Andre Villas Boas. The Spanish forward netting on Match Day one at home against Bayer Leverkusen, and now the London side head to Spain to try and cement six points from their opening six. Chelsea had to be patient against the Germans in their opening Group E, but two goals late on secured maximum points for Villas Boas in his first Champions League match with Chelsea. The two sides are no strangers to each other, as they have met four times since 2007. In the 2006/07 season, the two sides went head to head in the quarter finals, with Chelsea being held to a 1-1 draw at the Bridge, and then running out 2-1 in the return leg at the Metsalla. They came into contact again in the group stage of the following season, with Chelsea also winning by a 2-1 score line again in Spain. So Chelsea, although this did appear to be a tricky group with Valencia and Bayer Leverkusen, can take first control with another win in Spain. Valencia only managed a 0-0 at Belgian side Genk in their opening Champions League fixture this season. Up until 2007, Valencia had not lost to English opposition at the Metsalla, but tables have turned with them losing their last three (two against Chelsea and one against Manchester United). Overall, Valencia's record against English sides is W7 D4 L3. The Spaniards go into the match on the back of a defeat on the weekend in La Liga, going down 1-0 away at Sevilla. That was their first defeat of the season, having won three and drawn one of their opening four matches. Spanish sides are always tough and challenging, but Chelsea do have a pretty decent away record. They have not lost on their last six trips to Spain, and have only lost one of their last seven away Champions League group matches. So they look strong contenders to pick up an away win, although it will probably be a tight match. Chelsea go into the match with speculation over Frank Lampard, as he has been left on the bench quite a bit this season. Chelsea have a strong squad to take to Spain, although striker Romelu Lukaku is not eligible to play. But the Blues get Daniel Sturridge back after injury, and they should be strong enough to get through this. As always, possession is a big part of the game against any Spanish side, but that is something which the Blues can do. After having beaten Valencia at the Metsalla on their last two trips there, it is worth backing Chelsea for another win. There is a small trend in the 2-1 score line as well (which is 19/2 at Unibet), so that may well be worth backing in your Correct Score betting as well for Valencia v Chelsea.
