In their most recent match the Bats played against Real Betis on Tuesday, with the final score being a heavy 0:3 home defeat. Playing on home ground apparently did little to help the clubs in Valencia’s last 10 meetings, since the visitors emerged victorious in three encounters. Most of their ten last clashes ended in draws – namely six of them. One of their five last games had over 2.5 goals and two witnessed goals at both ends of the field. Valencia kept one clean sheet and they didn’t score in three of those. The parties netted a negligible number of goals during the team’s previous five outings, scoring an average of 1.8 per match.
