Valencia's away day blues to continue

Bet 1: Back Real Sociedad @ 4/7 - KO 18:00 BST

Real Sociedad host Valencia this evening and with the visitors having such a poor away record - even in the behind closed doors environment - I can't see anything other than a home win.

Imanol Alguacil's side are unbeaten in three so far this term - drawing with Valladolid and Real Madrid, before winning 3-0 at Elche most recently.

Valencia have taken four points from a possible six at home, but they were beaten in their only away game, and since the turn of 2020, they have now played 11 times on the road - drawing two and losing the other nine.

Blues to prove too strong

Bet 2: Back Chelsea @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST

This is a Carabao Cup tie that should go Chelsea's way, simply down to the fact that they will have a stronger XI on the field.

Jose Mourinho has rightly complained about Spurs' fixture pile-up, given their Europa League commitments. He doesn't have the biggest squad at his disposal anyway, and this competition will be the lowest priority - even if he won't want to lose against his former employer.

Frank Lampard, meanwhile, has plenty of strength in depth given his recent spend, and he is a manager in need of a few victories to ease the pressure.

Tight game expected at Getafe

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Getafe v Betis @ 2/1 - KO 20:30 BST

Betis are top of the La Liga standings with six points from their opening three games, but they face a tricky away trip to Getafe this evening, that I believe will end all square.

The hosts have only played twice, but they are yet to be beaten, and they lost just five of 19 at home last season. They don't concede many goals on their own patch, and they beat Betis 1-0 in January.

That being said, Betis' only defeat this term was a narrow one against Real Madrid, and they won at Alaves in their only away game. There really isn't much to split the two teams.
