Valencia vs. Barcelona Betting Tips 20/02/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Barcelona travel to the famous Estadio de Mestalla, where they meet with Valencia in Round 25 of the Spanish La Liga. The game kicks off by 20:45 IST on the 20th of February, 2022. This fixture, in particular, has produced several blockbuster games down the years, with the notable 7-0 win for Barca one of these special matches.

Valencia hope to arrest their run of poor form with an excellent home performance against the visitors. Barca, on their part, are unbeaten in the league in 5 games going into this encounter and will fancy their chances of extending that unbeaten run.

Teams Status

Here’s the latest on the form and team news from the Camp Nou and the Mestalla Stadium:


Valencia have hit rock bottom regarding their form and have been losing crucial matches and dropping points since the beginning of the year. The last time they won in the league was in December. Over their last 5 league games, they have lost 3 and drawn 2, scoring 4 goals and conceding 7.

They lie in 12th position on the league table after 24 matches and have won 7, drawn 9, and lost 8, scoring 36 goals and conceding 38. They are still 8 points off the final European spot, but it will take a miracle for them to get there, seeing they have hardly hit top gear since the beginning of this year. Goncalo Guedes remains their top scorer with 9 goals and 5 assists in 24 appearances.

For their team news, Valencia will be without goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen and Gaya Jose, who are sidelined with injuries.


Xavi Hernandez’s men look to have pulled themselves up out of an early-season slump. Their recent renaissance has seen them rise to 4th ahead of Atletico Madrid, having played one game less. They have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 league games, putting themselves in the race for Europe once more.

The Catalan giants have won 10 league games this season, drawing 9 and losing another 4, scoring 38 goals and conceding 27 in what has been a mixed campaign. Dutch international Memphis Depay is their top scorer with 8 goals and 2 assists this term.

For their team news, Barcelona have several players on the sidelines. Ronald Araujo, Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, Dani Alves, Clement Lenglet, Memphis Depay, and Ansu Fati have varying injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

Fixtures between Valencia and Barcelona have always been a tight call, even with Barcelona’s dominance in recent times. Barcelona are desperate to get something out of their season and will approach this game with purpose. Valencia have an outside chance of making a European spot, so both sides will be cautious of the threats they pose to one another.

Here are our thoughts on the likely outcomes in this fixture:

Tip: Barcelona to Win or Draw @ 1.27

Xavi’s men know that their destinies lie in their hands, literally. Apart from the Europa League, securing a Champions League spot is their major target presently. Hence, we expect them to go for the win in this encounter.

Also, from the head-to-head encounters between these two sides, Barcelona have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between them. We expect a win, or a draw at least, from Barcelona in this fixture. Barca to win is available on the sportsbook at 1.27 odds.

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.67

This is an interesting call, no doubt, but it is even more interesting to note that Valencia have only failed to score once in their last 15 games in all competitions. It is most likely that they will get one against Barcelona, as well.

Also, in the last 5 meetings between these two teams, only once have both teams failed to score. We expect an open encounter, with goals for either side. Both teams to score is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.67 odds.


Valencia host Barcelona in a La Liga cracker as both teams continue their quest for entirely different goals. Valencia aims for an outside shot at Europe, or at least, safety. Barcelona will want to secure a Champions League spot ahead of Atletico Madrid. We expect an aggressive game with an outstanding atmosphere for which the Mestalla is known.
