It is first against third in La Liga this weekend and we think the in-form visitors are capable of producing a big performance at the Camp Nou

Despite a crushing Champions League exit for Barcelona on Tuesday evening, there is still plenty for the Blaugrana to play for in what remains of the season.

Ernesto Valverde's men welcome Valencia to the Camp Nou in La Liga on Saturday afternoon, knowing that if they avoid defeat they would set a new Spanish record of 39 consecutive matches unbeaten.

Latest odds

Back in November these two sides played out a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Mestalla and dabblebet offer another draw at 9/2 (5.50).

Valencia have won two of their last four league visits to the Camp Nou and are priced at 9/1 (10.00) for another victory, while the hosts are clear favourites at 3/10 (1.30).

Valencia to cause problems

Since the Catalans knocked them out of the Copa del Rey at the start of February Valencia have been in exceptional form with nine wins in their subsequent ten league games.

The emotional blow of Barcelona's midweek Champions League exit should not be understated and Valencia will feel their opponents are there for the taking.

Los Che also boast one of the most in-form strikers in Rodrigo Moreno, who has netted in each of his last five matches and has 15 goals this season.

Tips and predictions

Backing Valencia to win or draw could appeal as a value bet at 12/5 (3.40). More realistic, however, is backing them to win with a +2 handicap at evens (2.00).

This bet pays out even if Barca win by a solitary goal and there is every chance that a Valencia team brimming with confidence can cause the Blaugrana plenty of problems.
