Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio de Mestalla will host Tuesday’s La Liga game between Valencia and Real Betis, the two top-table sides. Valencia have been struggling to find their best form of late, with the team failing to win the previous six league fixtures, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in the midweek clash. Hugo Guillamon is banned for the match, while fellow defender Jose Gaya is back from suspension.
Los Beticos, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-match winless run. The visitors have slim Champions League chances, but a win over Valencia will see them book their spot in the Europa League. Since the visitors want this triumph more than the hosts, we predict that los Verdiblancos will prove their worth on the field. In the first half of the season Real Betis crushed Valencia 4-1 at Estadio Benito Villamarin. As for the visiting side, both Claudio Bravo and Martin Montoya are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Maximiliano Gómez):
Commonly referred to as Maxi, the Uruguay striker Maximiliano Gomez is a ball playing forward who does not dive into tackles and is not afraid of a challenge to get closer to goal. Led by a genuine predator’s instinct, Maximiliano Gomez is that kind of a striker who’s always hungry for goals – a trait that’s arguably made him one of the hottest youngsters Uruguay has seen over the past decade.
Maxi Gomez is a strong player with a bulking physique. His friends call him Gucci in reference to a weighty singer from Uruguay – Gustavo ‘El Gucci’ Serafini. Having first stepped on the stage with Defensor Sporting in 2015, Maxi grabbed the spotlight in the penalty shootout against Lanus in the Copa Sudamericana Round of 16 when he displayed commendable courage and composure to send his team through in the competition.
Fearless and utterly intrepid in his exploits, Maxi Gomez was sold to Celta de Vigo in 2017 where he would go on to make an instant impact – with a brace on his debut, in a 3-2 defeat against Real Sociedad.
