Betting tips & odds comparison 08.01.2022 Real Madrid CF - Valencia CF

Betting Tip for matchday 20 of the 2021/2022 Primera División between Real Madrid CF and Valencia CF. The game will be played at Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid, Spain) on 08.01.2022 at 21:00.

Real Madrid’s charge for the title suffered a setback on the first day of the New Year with a shocking 1-0 defeat to Getafe.

Despite their best efforts at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, Getafe stood their ground. Next up for Carlo Ancelloti’s men is a date against Valencia.

REAL MADRID

Real Madrid got the second half of their La Liga campaign off to the worst possible start with a defeat at Getafe.

The former champions were odds on favourite to take all three points at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, but the hosts had other ideas. A moment of hesitation by Eder Militao presented Enes Unal a chance to put Getafe ahead and he duly obliged.

The Los Blancos dominated the game from then on and created a slew of half chances to restore parity but they met a resolute Getafe.

During the game, Carlo Ancelloti cut a frustrated figure in the technical area and will certainly demand a response from his team against Valencia.

VALENCIA

Valencia, like their Round 20 opponents, Rea Madrid, lost in their last Liga outing to less fancied opponents. Espanyol condemned Bardalas Jimenez’s men to a 1-2 defeat which leaves them in the 9th spot on the log.

Having ended 2021 on a losing note, they will be looking to start the second half of the season with a better result. However, the Head-to-Head stats of their recent meetings with Real Madrid paints a note too impressive picture.

In their last five meetings, the Los Che have only managed to take all maximum points once and lost the rest. Additionally, this fixture is coming at a time when Real Madrid needs to get a result to forestall the threat of Sevilla who are breathing down their necks in second place.

While Valencia may have their moments in the final third on Saturday, they will most likely have their hands full with the onslaught of the home team.

REAL MADRID VS VALENCIA BETTING TIPS

Real will definitely be looking to make amends for the awful showing at Getafe and only a win will be enough to make up for the defeat in their first game of the new year.

Madrid has an almost fully fit squad with exciting winger Vinicius Junior back in contention after a bout of COVID-19. His return will give Ancelloti more options in attack and that will mean Valencia will be under immense pressure of defending their goal. 

However, they are likely to hold out in the first half of the game before the floodgates of goals open in the second half. Therefore we are backing most goals to be scored in the second half which is priced at 1.97 on Ogabet.

For our second tip, we will go with the most likely outcome in the three-way outcome which is a Real Madrid win. The stats is in favour of Real and given the importance of this match, they are unlikely to let Valencia leave unscathed. As a result, we are backing Real Madrid to win at a decent 1.39 on Betway.
