Valencia vs Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid is one of the most solid and effective teams in the world. They are very close to Real Madrid and Barcelona, but odds for them are much better, so it's a very good team to back all season long. Tonight they face a difficult challenge on paper, but we can see value in this price as Valencia is still a work in progress and they are not at the same level as Atletico for sure.
Atletico showed they are already in good form when they beat Real Madrid in Supercut final. It was the first win over Real Madrid in Europe for them. Morale is very high and new players got immediately involved in Simeone project and philosophy: the team comes first. Both Rodri and Lemar will show very good stuff this season. And Diego Costa is among the top 5 goalscorer in the world right now.
Valencia finished in 4th place last season, and they were a difficult team to beat for anybody: still they are far from being as solid as Atletico. They were unable to beat Atletico in last 3 games played in Mestalla (2 losses, 1 draw). They actually lost 5 of last 6 meetings against Someone team, scoring 2 goals in the process and allowing 11.
We expect a close match but Atletico is very good value at this price.
