Match: Valencia vs. Las Palmas Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Monday, 22 August, 2016
Start time: 21:00 UK
Valencia will start the season against Las Palmas at home.
“Estadio de Mestalla” expect victory and Pako Ayestaran’s guys will try everything to provide it. For sure, Valencia will try everything to forget the last season as soon as it’s possible. Gary Nevile’s period was one of the weakest for “the bats” in their history. The best news for this team and the local fans are that now Neville is out and Pako Ayestaran will try to prove his qualities as a manager.
Before this match, he has got few problems with the squad. He can’t use Rodrigo, who is suspended due to yellow cards. The same for the new signing, one of EURO’s 2016 stars, Luis Nani. Federico Cartabia is injured, so all of these 3 players are out of Ayestaran’s plans for the upcoming game. Las Palmas, with Quique Setien, can’t use only Hernan and Lopes – both injured. This team started to look very solid in attack after signing Kevine-Prince Boateng. Besides of that, the quality in that zone is obviously. Marko Livaja, Sergio Araujo, and Nabil El Zhar are the other strikers and they can also cause a lot of problems for the opponents.
Away team recorded amazing results through the pre-season friendlies – 5 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss. We guess that Las Palmas will try to continue with the good results through the regular season. They are one attractive team and from the first game, they will prove right that. We think that both teams will show very good effectiveness in forward and their meeting will be very attractive.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 4/5 (1.80) with Bet365
