La Liga. Round 30
Stadium: Mestalla (Valencia)
The Sunday pool of La Liga round 30 will continue with the match between Valencia and Cadiz. The Levantines still have some chances to fight for a place in the top six. However, it is obvious that the priority for the Bats is the Copa del Rey, which guarantees a place in the Europa League for the team. Regardless, we doubt the Bats will treat their remaining La Liga home games with any slackness.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Valencia's unbeaten streak is five games long; it began with the away win over Mallorca on February 26 and has lasted throughout March. In addition to the victory over the Balearic side, the team also beat Athletic in the Copa del Rey, found themselves stronger than Granada in La Liga and played out a 0-0 draw with Getafe on the road. Such results ensured Valencia ninth place in the Spanish La Liga standings. As we wrote above, the chances of reaching the European Cup zone remain, however, the lag from Real Sociedad, located in the European Cup zone, is equal to eight points. Valencia's home statistics are 12th in the division. They won 5 out of 14 games at the Mestalla, with six draws and three defeats, on a goal difference of 22-18.
Valencia was stable in March. They can't claim to have reached their season goal, but at least the host team is not in danger of relegation. But that relegation threatens Cadiz. Before the start of round 30, the southerners are only one point ahead of Mallorca, which in turn is in the relegation zone. It is true that recently the dynamics were on the side of Cadiz, because they lost only once in the last five games, scoring eight points in this period. For example, Mallorca has seen only losses in the last five games, forcing the leaders to go to extreme measures and change the head coach. Cadiz's away statistics are 12th in the division, with three wins and seven losses in 14 games, with four draws and a goal difference of 13-23.

Expert Betting Tips
As we wrote above, we doubt that Valencia won't be careful at the Mestalla. Even the weak tournament motivation of the Bats won't stop the Levantians from regularly delighting their fans with home victories. The more so because the home team still has a chance, albeit slim, of making it into the top six. Cadiz is more motivated in terms of the standings, and lately the southerners have been scoring regularly, but the best matches the team played were home, all away matches were losses, at best draws. This is why you should consider betting on Valencia's victory for 1.85 from Bet365.
Since Cadiz's return to the elite of Spanish soccer, Valencia and the Southerners at the Mestalla have played two official face-offs in two tournaments: La Liga and the Copa del Rey. These two matches saw both teams score. There is little doubt that Valencia will score at home, and Cadiz managed to score against Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano a couple of rounds ago. So, probably, we should not be surprised if the southerners score at the Mestalla as well. The second bet is a combined W1+BTTS option for 4.54 as offered by 1xbet.
As for the correct score, we don't expect a very productive match, but we hope to see three goals scored. Under such a scenario, Valencia's victory with a score of 2-1 for 8.50 as offered by 22bet is an optimal option to bet on.
