Valencia face a huge test in La Liga as they travel to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday to battle with Sevilla.

Los Rojiblancos have a few things to deal with - a Copa del Rey final and a Champions League trip to Manchester United. Despite claiming just two victories in their last five home league fixtures and shipping in five goals on two occasions, BetKing still offers them at (2.10) as slight favourites.

Currently, Los Che have been in good form having scooped 13 points from their last five league matches. Also, last weekend, they saw off the opposition from Seville by cruising to a 2-0 win over in-form Real Betis.

Even with their solidity away from home this season, the visitors are still considered slight underdogs at odds of (3.45).

Two of last seven duels between these sides have seen them share the spoils. For this game to follow that trend, a mouth-watering (3.60) is gifted by the same betting firm.

Favour has always been on the home team’s side in this tie.Vincenzo Montella’s charges have won four of the last six at their own backyard but have tasted defeats on five occasions of their last six trips to Mestalla.

Among the current La Liga top-seven this season, the Andalusians are the only team to have shipped in more goals (40) than they scored (36). With Valencia being prolific in front of goal, both outfits are tipped at (1.58) to score each other.

Four of last six head-to-head battles between both clubs has produced more than two goals. This can be backed at a chunky (1.70).

The Mestalla giants will head to the Andalusia with full confidence drawn out of their current surge in form in the league this season away from home.

Punters should therefore back the visiting team to avoid defeat in this exciting clash. BetKing offers odds of (1.75) for this outcome.
