Valencia 17/20 to beat Sporting Gijon in Tuesday’s Copa del Rey matchup
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Valencia win
Odds: 17/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey, Valencia will travel to Segunda side Sporting Gijon on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Sporting Gijon may have come within touching distance of securing a return to La Liga last season, it has been an underwhelming campaign for the Red and Whites. In their 20 games in the Segunda division this year, they have won just six times, drawing eight and losing six, scoring 19 and conceding 17 in return. With a points tally of 26, Gijon currently find themselves sat outside of the top half of the table in Spain’s second division. As for their recent run of form, Tuesday’s hosts have now managed to record just one win in their last five matches across all competitions.
As for the visitors, while Valencia might be a side still in transition, the Whites have begun to show some signs of improvement entering the New Year. In their 18 games in La Liga, they have recorded four wins, 10 draws and four defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 16 in return. Although their points tally of 22 may see them sat down in 11th position, the Bats do hold the second best defensive record in Spain’s top-tier. As for their recent run of form entering 2019, Valencia have now lost just one of their last six matches across all competitions.
