Valencia v Atletico Madrid betting: Fans set for goal-fest at the Mestalla

ShareClose Comments
Both sides have looked strong going forward so far this season and we think the price for both to score this weekend looks generous

Valencia's positive start to the season coupled with a seemingly successful transfer window means there is an air of optimism around Mestalla.

An opening day win over Las Palmas followed by a hugely creditable 2-2 at the Bernabeu has also shown that Los Che under new manager Marcelino seem to have a much clearer idea of how they want to play.

Their expectant supporters will be hoping this upward curve will continue on Saturday afternoon when they host an Atletico Madrid side who enjoyed a rampant victory against Las Palmas just before the international break; Los Rojiblancos won 5-1 on the island of Gran Canaria without Antoine Griezmann who was suspended, although the Frenchman will return for this weekend's game at a stadium where he has scored for the last two seasons.

Marathonbet make the visitors favourites for the win at 119/100 (2.19) while Valencia can be backed at 27/10 (3.70) and the draw is offered at 123/50 (3.46).

Atletico have won each of the last four meetings between these two sides, beating Valencia home and away for the last two seasons, although, as mentioned, the early signs are that Los Che are back on track after a turbulent couple of years.

This fixture tends to provide goals and with both teams having made a strong start to the campaign there is every chance of them both scoring once more, which is offered at the tempting price of 89/100 (1.89) while both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is offered at 153/100 (2.53)

Valencia managed to net twice at the Bernabeu in their last game and created chances to score more, while Atletico have scored seven goals in their two matches so far in La Liga, means goals at both ends on Saturday look highly probable.
