LA LIGA MONDAY: Our European football tipster The Ultra previews Monday’s clash between BARCELONA v REAL VALLADOLID with a recommended BETDAQ bet.


8pm We only have one game for Monday night football in Europe tonight, but it’s a big game for Barcelona as they host Real Valladolid. The market is fully expecting a Barcelona win, with the home side trading as short as 1.16 on BETDAQ Betting Exchange. Although a win is expected, a win for Barcelona is absolutely vital tonight. They would have been watching Sevilla v Atletico Madrid last night, but Barcelona have to take on Real Madrid next weekend.

Any points dropped here would be criminal given how poor Real Valldolid have been this season. Real Valladolid are in the relegation battle, and with Barcelona playing their best football of the season recently I can only see one way traffic here. I feel it’s a case of how many will Barcelona score rather than will they win. It could be a massive week for Barcelona, as a win in El Clasico at the weekend would be a huge boost for their title hopes. Not many football fans would have thought it would be Barcelona putting the pressure on Atletico after their start to the season.

Obviously all the problems in the dressing room have been solved for the time being, and the goals have been flowing for Barcelona. They put in one of their best performances of the season in the second leg against PSG in the Champions League. They could only draw 1-1 but their created an xG of 2.21 and then went on to score ten goals in two La Liga games. They hammered Real Sociedad 6-1 and I feel they can score plenty again here.

The handicap markets are appealing, but given the amount of chances Barcelona have been creating lately I feel they’ll get off to a good start here. Barcelona/Barcelona Half Time/Full Time is 1.53 and that looks good value. Valladolid give away too many chances for Barcelona not to take control of this game quickly.

The Ultra Says:
Two points win Barcelona/Barcelona Half Time/Full Time at 1.53 on BETDAQ Betting Exchange
