Valencia – Krasnodar, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR VALENCIA - KRASNODAR
Now is the time to bet on Valencia. The bats finally saw the light in the tunnel. They are in a good series and we can say without much worry that this is the team we watched last season. This is the team, who qualified for the Champions League. Valencia is already in the final for Copa del Rey, and now has a chance to continue in Europa League. Interestingly, for problems in the first half season, Valencia has a chance again even for the top 4 in La Liga, because they are only 6 points from Getafe.
Krasnodar somehow got here after a draw with Bayer and an away goal. And that goal came after a free kick. The Russians come after a draw with Spartak Moscow, which has left them a bit behind from leader Zenit in the Russian Premier League. For them, the title is certainly more important, but they will try to perform well on both fronts. However, Krasnodar is a very poor guest in this tournament, because they almost always plays with much stronger rivals.
1st, Valencia did not lose in 11 consecutive games. 2nd, after countless home draws till early November, bats have 11 wins and 4 draws after at home and in these 15 games they have only conceded 6 goals. Something really impressive. Valencia’s defense is so good. Krasnodar is unlikely to have any chance of scoring, it is logical for them to close and look for goals from either counter or set pieces. The Spanish teams are tournament fighters, and we think Valencia’s class was already seen 1 time against a team from the Krasnodar class, Celtic. Prediction – Valencia to win at 1.48.
