Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Valencia vs Atlético


The Orange finished the last season in the Example in 9th place with a negative difference between goals scored and conceded. They failed the ending, issuing a series of 8 rounds without a win. In the Spanish Cup, Valencia reached the final, but they failed to win the coveted trophy and, as a result, break into the European competition, losing the title to Betis in a series of 11-meter strikes. Gattuso was called to return the team to its former glory. There were no significant changes in the composition: Lino came (last season he spent in Gil Vicente) and Nicolas Gonzalez (Barcelona), and the transfer of Goncalo Guedes to Wolverhampton stands out from the losses.

Valencia started the new season with a difficult but well-deserved victory over Girona: 1-0. The only goal was scored by Soler from the penalty spot just before the break. They failed to build on their success: in the second round, the Orange lost away to Athletic Bilbao (0-1), never once disturbing the opponent's goal.


Last season, the “mattress”, to put it mildly, did not impress, but in the Example they took a high third place, and in the Champions League they reached the 1/4 finals, where they could not even print the gates of Man City: a 0-1 defeat in Manchester and a draw 0 -0 in Madrid. From summer transfers, we note the signing of right-back Lucero from Udinese, the arrival of Witsel from Borussia Dortmund and the return of Morata from loan at Juventus. There is only one significant loss - the departure of Suarez to the Uruguayan Nacional Montevideo.

Simeone's team started the new season with a big away win over Getafe (3-0), but then lost at home to Villarreal in an equal fight: 0-2.

Game Totals Prediction

Last season, face-to-face meetings turned out to be very spectacular and interesting: at the Mestalla, Valencia performed a real miracle, winning back from 0-3 (3-3), but in Madrid, the mattress toppers already showed their character, scratching out a 3-2 victory from the score 0-2 after the first half.

Given the weak play of the “oranges” in attack and the strong defense of Madrid, it is hard to believe in a positive result for the hosts. In our opinion, bets on Valencia Under (1.0) at 1.51 and Atlético with Handicap (0) at 1.43 will be win-win options. Simeone's team also rarely pleases their fans with a spectacular game and an abundance of goals, the poem looks good here total under (2.5) for 1.65 or X2 + total under (2.5) for 2.07.
