      Analysis: Barcelona vs Valencia (03 February 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: February 01 2016, 16:24 »

      Barcelona and Valencia face at Camp Nou, Barcelona, in a 1st leg match for the Copa del Rey semi-finals.
      The head to head record favours Barcelona, since in the last 4 matches they register 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.

      Analysis of Barcelona

      Barcelona comes to this match after a 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid, so they now register 8 consecutive wins: Messi and Suárez scored the goals. The home team is currently in the 1st position of La Liga, with 51 points won.
      In the previous round of Copa del Rey, Barcelona eliminated Espanyol, with 2 wins, by 1-2 and 3-1. In their last 10 matches coach Luis Enrique’s team registers averages of 2,9 goals scored and 0,5 conceded per match, so their offensive power is evident.
      They have opened up the score in 6 of the last 10 matches and always held on to the lead. Moreover, they turned the score around in the 3 matches in which they conceded the first goal. The best period of Barcelona is between minutes 76’ and 90’, in which they have scored 7 goals.

      Analysis of Valencia

      Valencia comes to this match after a 0-1 home loss against Sporting Gijón, so they have lost again, after 6 matches with no losses: their previous loss dates back to a Champions league match, against Lyon. They are currently in the 12th position of the league, with 25 points won.
      To reach this stage of the competition, coach Gary Neville’s team eliminated Las Palmas in the previous round, after a 1-1 draw in the 1st leg and a 0-1 away win in the 2nd leg. In the last 10 matches Valencia registers averages of 1,4 goals scored and 1 conceded per match.
      In these matches they opened up the score 3 times and always held on to the lead. Their best period is between minutes 31’ and 45’, in which they have scored 3 goals and conceded only 1.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that Barcelona will end first half in front. We believe the home team will present a strong starting 11 and try to score in the first minutes, to then control the match. Moreover, Valencia is going through a negative period, so they may present some anxiety, since they need to improve soon to be able to fight for the goals they had at the beginning of the season.
