After narrowly avoiding the drop on the final day of last season thanks to the late season interim appointment of Ruben Baraja, Valencia stuck with their former player in charge and he now has over achieving this season despite continued off-field issues. They begin the 32nd match day of the campaign sitting tucked inside the top seven and the European spots.

The Valencians come into this one on the back of another slender but typical 1-0 victory over Osasuna at El Sadar in their most recent outing with Andre Almeida scoring an 18th minute winner in that game. That means Valencia have now suffered just one loss in their last seven matches with six of those seven games featuring one or zero goals.


It has been an underwhelming few months for Real Betis and former Manchester City, West Ham United, Malaga and Real Madrid manager Manuel Pellegrini. The Andalusians had the gap closed on them between themselves in the top seven and the rest of La Liga but they come into this one on the back of a much-needed victory at the Benito Villamarin last weekend.

Juan Miranda and Nabil Fekir both scored in the second-half before Jorgen Strand Larsen notched a consolation in stoppage-time of a 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo. Prior to that victory, Betis had managed just one victory in their previous eight matches across all competitions, including a loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the knockout playoffs of the UEFA Europa Conference League.



Valencia have three key injury issues for this weekend’s visit of Real Betis as defenders Mouctar Diakhaby and Jose Luis Gaya are unavailable alongside Roman Yaremchuk.

PREDICTED XI (4-4-2): Mamardashvili; Foulquier, Mosquera, Ozkacar, Vazquez; Perez, Guerra, Pepelu, Lopez; Almeida, Duro

UNAVAILABLE: Diakhaby (Injured), Gaya (Injured), Yaremchuk (Injured)



January signing Chimy Avila is out injured alongside both Hector Bellerin and Marc Roca, whilst Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Marc Bartra are doubtful.

PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Silva; Sabaly, Pezzella, Riad, Miranda; Rodriguez, Cardoso; Fornals, Isco, Ayoze Perez; Willian Jose

UNAVAILABLE: Bellerin (Injured), Roca (Injured), Avila (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Sokratis (Injured), Bartra (Injured)


The title race and perhaps even the relegation battle in La Liga are close to being over but this game is defining for the top seven and the UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying spots. Ruben Baraja’s Valencia play a pragmatic and defensively controlled style of football and they come up against evenly matched opposition in Real Betis who have scored just 38 goals in 31 games so far this season. As a result, a tight and cagey low-scoring encounter is to be expected at Mestalla.
