Valencia vs Granada betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds


Both teams have scored in eight of the last nine meetings between these two. Granada are winless in nine visits to Mestalla.

Both teams to score is 10/11.

Gonçalo Guedes is 11/2 to break the deadlock and 7/4 to net anytime.

Match preview

Valencia are through to the Copa del Rey Final.

On Wednesday night, Gonçalo Guedes’ stunning long-range strike was enough to see los Che beat Athletic Club Bilbao 1-0 at home.

So, having drawn 1-1 at San Mamés three weeks earlier, Valencia will be at Estadio de La Cartuja on 23 April to face Real Betis in the cup final.

In a very tangible sense, that could also be the best route into Europe for José Bordalás’ team.

Despite beating Mallorca 1-0 at Son Moix last weekend, Gabriel Paulista with a spectacular goal, Valencia are down in ninth in the table.

That is largely because they were winless in seven before this, dating back to 20 December, accumulating just two points.

With the cup final not for seven weeks, can los Che start to climb the table?

Granada meanwhile are looking to do just that too, but their need is to fend off relegation.

Nazaríes held Cádiz to a goalless draw at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes on Monday, despite having Domingos Duarte sent off in the first half an hour.

Before this, Robert Moreno’s side had lost five successive games so, while that point stops the rot, they’re still without a win in eight.

This leaves el Graná just one place and four points above the relegation zone at the start of the weekend.

Who will claim a rare La Liga victory in 2022 at Mestalla?

After such a momentous victory less than 72 hours ago, José Bordalás has to motivate his players to go again.

Giorgi Mamardashvili, who joined the B Team last summer, could be starting a Copa del Rey Final in goal next month.

At the back, Gabriel Paulista’s return after injured is a massive boost.

José Luis Gayà was also a surprise inclusion against Athletic on Wednesday after he’d missed the trip to Mallorca injured.

Ilaix Moriba also started that game but his red card last weekend means he is suspended.

Yunus Musah is likely to come into midfield, alongside Carlos Soler.

Granada have had two days extra rest and need to make that count.

However, they’re without Domingos Duarte at the heart of their backline following his red card against Cádiz.

Quini or Víctor Díaz could come into the defence is Robert Moreno sticks with the back three.

At the other end of the field, Luis Suárez has been starting lately but Jorge Molina could come in; Carlos Bacca is still injured.
