Football Prediction of the Day Valencia vs Lille
Lille got the first point in the group in extremis, after in the last European game he equalized in the last minutes, 1-1 at home with Valencia. Now he meets the same opponent, but on the field of bats will be very difficult.
Lille is a team that is not doing well at the outset, where it has never won in the 7 matches of the current season.
1X and under 3.5 goals in the match is the bet I recommend. Valencia do not think he can lose home, being the most valuable team.
Regarding the goals I do not expect a very spectacular match, because the stake is important. In no match disputed away by Lille no more than 3 goals were scored, while the same can be said about 6 of 7 matches of Valencia in front of their fans.
Bet Tips: 1X & 0-3 goals
An interesting match, which will be decisive for the qualification in the next phase and any wrong step of these two teams will clearly outline the fight for the 2-3 places in the group.
Valencia is undefeated in the direct matches, and on their own field they have two victories scoring in both matches at least two goals.
I do not think Lille has the strength to make any point in this match, but for greater certainty I have chosen this very realistic forecast.
Prediction Today:Valencia wins any half
