Ebro vs Valencia Football Betting Tips
Having been involved in the fight for the places of access the possible promotion to the Liga Adelante in the last season, the Ebro is making a very negative campaign so far in Group 3 of the third tier of Spanish football.
At the end of 10 days, he is the 20th and last place in the table of his league, with only eight points, fruit of a victory, five draws and four defeats, where he scored only five goals and scored 10.
To reach here in this King’s Cup, the Ebro already had to overcome the Marbella (won away by 1-0), Real Murcia (qualified in the penaltys after 0-0 in regular time) and Lleida Esportiu (won 2-1 at home). Although not dazzling in his sporting season, the Ebro reaches this first leg of the 16 round of the King’s Cup in a three-game losing streak with only two defeats in the last nine games.
Most recently, he beat Peralada (19th) 2-1 away and drew 0-0 in the reception to Conquense (16th).
Valencia have been well below expectations at the start of the season, even taking 14th place in the Spanish league with 11 points from 10 games, with only one win, eight (!) Draws and one defeat.
In goals, only seven were scored and eight suffered, which leaves the team che enters the best defenses of the championship, but with the second worst attack.
This will be the debut of Valencia in the new edition of the King’s Cup, a competition where he left a year ago in the semi-finals, being eliminated with Barcelona with two hands.
In 13 official matches in 2018/19, Marcelino’s side only lost to Espanyol and Juventus, but they have had many difficulties in winning games, is in a string of five consecutive draws, the last of which in Bilbao, against Athletic (0-0).
For this match, the Valencia coach summoned four players from the club’s youth ranks, in a list that does not include the names of Piccini, Cheryshev, Parejo, Gonçalo Guedes, Gayá, Rodrigo, Garay and Kondogbia, some by injury, others by technical option.
It is good to remember that this is a two-legged tie and it is quite common to see what Marcelino Toral did for this first duel.
The Valencia coach has made a call with many of his second and third choices, many are the usual absentees holders, to face a set of third division, where he has had difficulties in leaving the relegation zone.
Still, the Ebro does not have a very beaten defense, comes from three games where he managed to win two and at home will certainly present himself with higher levels of motivation to face a large ensemble of top Spanish football, who in addition to the lackluster has felt enormous difficulties to score goals in this season (in 13 games, Valencia only managed to hit the mark of a goal, in the draw to two in the derby with Levante).

Adding all these factors and noting that it is not uncommon to see clearly weaker teams balancing forces with the favorites in this type of competition, I believe it will be a game where the Ebro will try to go to the Mestalla with the undercard open, that is, not suffering many goals, preferably with a win or even draw, against a Valencia that goes to Zaragoza clearly in effort management, which can result in a pale triumph or even a surprising result.
