The Betpal Football Bet of the Day is in the round of Champions League fixtures on Tuesday night. Valencia hosts Lille in Spain. Both teams are yet to get off the mark in the Group stages, so where is the money in this one?
Match: Valencia v Lille
Bet of the Day: Valencia win
Best Odds: 1.69 Pinnacle
Valencia may appear at first glance to have made a mediocre start to their La Liga campaign, as they sit 8th. However, the first seven games of their season (in all competitions) have included trips to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. Things do not get much harder – yet Roberto Soldado and company have performed very well. Lille though, have struggled to win at all, and were beaten 3-1 at home by BATE in their first Champions League fixture. Against Rennes this weekend, Lille enjoyed plenty of possession but created very little and were ultimately seen off 2-0. With just two wins all season, the French side head to Spain with very little confidence or momentum. Valencia are traditionally strong at home – last year in the Champions League group stages, Chelsea secured a draw, but Bayer Leverkusen were seen off 3-1 and Genk were hammered 7-0. PSV Eindhoven, Stoke City and AZ Alkmaar also all tasted defeat at Valencia last term, but in the Europa League. Back the hosts to see off the visitors again. Bwin’s 2.9 on a home win to nil is also noteworthy.
