With the Blaugrana’s defensive weakness exposed lately and the visitors’ attacking prowess, end to end action should be the order in Catalonia

Camp Nou is the venue for the Spanish Primera Division showdown between Barcelona and Valencia on Saturday night.

Ernesto Valverde’s men saw their dream for a treble this season dashed when they crashed out of the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday night viaa away goals against Roma despite their 4-1 first leg advantage.

However, the hosts’ unbeaten record in the league this season convinces Bet365 to tip them as favourites at odds of (1.28).

Los Che will be full of confidence as they head to Catalonia on a fine run of form which has seen them win eight of their last nine encounters. Contrastingly, their poor stint against the log-leaders makes bookies tag them at (9.50) as underdogs.

An unlikely draw which only paid out once in their last five league fixtures is chalked up at (6.00).

Considering that the Barca backline was breached at the Olimpico, Valencia will fancy their chances at getting a resutl at the Camp Nou. A double chance for them is quoted a whooping (3.75) by the same betting firm.

Three of their last five meetings in the Spanish top-flight games has seen an outcome of three or more goals. Thus, it won’t be out place backing such again at odds of (1.40).

Moreno Rodrigo can be backed to score anytime at a chunky price of (3.50) as the Spanish forward has found the net in all of his five previous appearances for the club.

All of the last five competitive duels in the top-tier division between both sides has seen goal actions at both ends of the pitch. Bet365 offers (1.70) for such an outcome here.

Odds are correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
