Valencia vs Chelsea match
The situation in Group H is very tense right now. In addition to Lille, who was eliminated, the remaining 3 names are getting 7 points after 4 games played. That means, this match will be vital for both Chelsea and Valencia.
With Bats, they took down their opponents in the first leg. The discomfort in the defensive counter-attack was shown by the Spanish representative. The Blues controlled the ball up to 59%, launched 17 shots but the efficiency was still only 0.
Valencia will be playing at home in this second leg. At Mestalla, they were unbeaten in the last 8/9 matches. Since October 5, they even won 3/4 matches here.
On the other side of the front line, Chelsea once again showed poor bravery in big matches. Confronting Man City, they were the first to open the scoring, but in the end still suffered empty-handed.
In the really big games since the beginning of the season, they have only won 1 victory. The rest, the Stamford Bridge home team has twice been defeated by Man United and fallen to Liverpool.
They had to carry too much pressure on the march to Spain. This will make the feet of young players become heavy.
Asia match Valencia vs Chelsea: choose Valencia
Chelsea are unbeaten against the top team Ajax. Confrontation history is also on their side. The betting expert of bongda365 said that these are probably the factors that make Asian bookies still place The Blues at the top.
However, all current advantages are in favor of the homeowner. The cohesion in their squad is something that is not easy to break. With the shortage of force due to injury, Valencia also finds it difficult to approach the opponent’s penalty area too much. A draw is possible and that is more than enough for those who believe in the Bats to make a bet.
Valencia vs Chelsea over and under: choose Under
Chelsea have very good attacking elements. Valencia understands this and they will certainly enter the game again very cautiously.
The Blues’ away scoring performance is also not really impressive. In the last 3/4 matches away from home, they only fired at most 2 times/match.
Confrontations between the two sides in the past also rarely appeared many goals. In the last 4 matches the two teams met, the Under bet came back 3 times.
