Competition: La Liga
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
In a contest between two sides who are really seeking a New Year’s bounce, relegation scrappers Valencia will host a struggling Cadiz on Monday night.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a hugely worrying run of form, Valencia find themselves firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap. In their 16 La Liga contests so far this season, they have recorded three wins, six draws and seven defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 24 in return. Managing to muster themselves just a points tally of 15, the Whites open the New Year sat way down in 18th and holding a one-point deficit in the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, Valencia have failed to win any of their last seven straight La Liga matchups and they have just a single top-flight victory to their name since the end of September. Along with winning just one of their last seven appearances on home soil, it should also be noted that the Bats have failed to record more than a single strike in four of their last six La Liga contests.
As for the visitors, while Cadiz might have really impressed when marking their La Liga return over the summer, they also find themselves in the midst of what has been an extended sluggish patch. In their 16 top-flight matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, four draws and seven defeats, scoring 11 and conceding 20 in return. While Cadiz might open Monday’s fixtures with a points tally of 19 and just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half, it should be noted that they do hold the worst-attacking record in the division entering the New Year. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 0-0 stalemate against Real Valladolid, the guests have managed to pick up just a single point from their last four La Liga matchups on the bounce. Failing to bag a single strike in any of those four appearances, we’re backing another cagey encounter on Monday night.
