Tip Valencia Atletico Madrid
on 14 February 2020
After falling 3-0 at Getafe last weekend, Valencia sit seventh in the La Liga table, some two points behind next opponents Atletico Madrid, who are fourth. On the same day, Angel Correa scored in the sixth minute to help Atletico beat Granada 1-0. This was Atletico's first win in four league matches. Valencia go into the match hoping to secure their first victory against Atletico in seven matches. Three of the their previous six encounters against the Los Blancos ended in draws and Atletico won the other three. Los Ches will be hosting the game encouraged by the fact that they won four of their last six home games in all competitions. But when it comes to goal count, just two of Valencia's last six games at the Mestalla Stadium had over 2.5 goals scored. Atletico are not playing well on the road either and have only won twice in six games across all competitions. Madrid's away games have also not been registering sufficient goals, with just two of six soaring past the two-goal mark. The outcome of this match will be determined by who will be quick enough to the goals in the first half, and we expect a lot of exciting action in the opening half hour.
