Rapid VS Valencia

Preview
Rapid Vienna and Valencia face at Ernst‑Happel‑Stadion, in a 2nd leg match for the Liga Europa (16 avos de final), after the (6‑0) home win by Valencia in the 1st leg match. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Rapid Wien

The home team comes to this 2nd leg match with a disadvantage of 6 goals, apart from the drawback of not having scored any away goals in the 1st leg. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 11 wins, 1 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Sturm Graz by (0‑2). Rapid Vienna has won 8, tied 1 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches.

Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 6 of the last 7 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 5 of the last 7 matches for this competition.

To reach this knockout phase of the Europa League, Rapid Wien was by far the best team in their group, but now they have an almost impossible task, trying to get back after a 6-0 defeat in the first match. In the Austrian Bundesliga, they are having good games in this beginning of the year with 3 wins without conceding any goals and they hope to repeat this this Thursday. For this match, coach Zoran Barisic should be without Dibon, Novota, Schaub, Kainz and Hofman, who are hurt.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Strebinger, M. Wöber, M. Hofmann, M. Pavelić, M. Sonnleitner, T. Petsos, T. Murg, S. Grahovac, S. Schwab, D. Alar, P. Prosenik.
Coach: Z. Barišić.

Analysis of Valencia

The away team comes to this 2nd leg match with an advantage of 6 goals, but has suffered 0 goals at home in the 1st leg. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 6 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 15 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away win against o Granada by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Valencia has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4.

In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

After finishing third in their group at Champions League, Valencia showed how strong they can be after the first match. They were up 5-0 in the first 35 minutes of the match. They come in an excellent form, with 3 wins in a row and hope to win once again this Thursday. Coach Gary Neville should be without Aymen Abdennour, who is hurt.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Ryan, S. Mustafi, Rúben Vezo, Gayá, Barragán, P. Piatti, Danilo Barbosa, Javi Fuego, S. Feghouli, Rodrigo, Álvaro Negredo.
Coach: Pako Ayestarán.

Betting suggestion:

With a better team, Valencia should be superior, even playing away from home, and should have the best goal scoring opportunities, especially in the first half. So we believe that the visiting team will win this match or at least won't be beaten. A bet on the +0,5 Asian handicap in the first half should be of great value.
