Deportivo vs Valencia preview, betting tips and prediction: Los Che to keep up unlikely title charge
Valencia @ 7/5 with Betway
High-flying Valencia travel to Deportivo this weekend armed with a new weapon in the form of Luciano Vietto.
The Argentine forward endeared himself to Valencia with a hat-trick on his full debut after a mid-season loan move from Atletico Madrid. Las Palmas were the unlucky side at the mercy of a Vietto wonder-show in the Copa Del Rey, the forward’s third, coming from just inside the opposition half, well worth looking up.

That 4-0 win earned passage to the semi-finals on a 5-1 aggregate cruise ship. Now Valencia turn their focus to La Liga. Sitting third in the table, they could potentially leapfrog Atletico Madrid with victory this weekend.
Further reinforcements are on their way for The Bats. Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has been signed in a deal that could be worth £20m. Juventus reserve Stefano Sturaro has also been linked with a midseason move.
GRAB THIS OFFER FROM BETVICTOR
This January business will encourage Valencia fans that their owners are willing to support manager Marcelino in his bid to get the club back into the Champions League. Another boost for the side is the commitment of Andreas Pereira.
The attacker, on loan in Spain from Manchester United, is having a wonderful campaign, so much so that there are rumours of an early recall. But he dismissed these reports as bogus. “I think they are in Dubai. I do not think Mourinho saw the game. What I want is to stay in Valencia and win a trophy with this team,” he told Spanish media. Relegation-battling Deportivo will dig their heels in to keep Valencia at bay but will struggle to stop opponents this confident.
