Valencia vs Real Betis Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
With the tie hanging in balance, Valencia CF will be looking for the home comfort when they host Real Betis in the 2nd leg of Copa del Rey semifinal match at Mestalla Stadium, in Valencia, Spain, on Thursday night (IST).
What competition it is? Copa del Rey, Semi-final, Leg 2 of 2
Teams: Valencia and Real Betis
Kick Off: Friday 1st March
Match Timing: 01:30 AM (IST)
Where the game is played? Mestalla Stadium (55,000)
Valencia have a golden opportunity to play a final and possibly end the campaign with a trophy. The 2nd leg is at their home, and the tie hangs in balance. The ball is in Valencia’s court now, and they will have to make full use of their chances.
The hosts will be brimming with confidence as well, having come from 2-0 down in the first leg to earn a precious away draw. Denis Cheryshev (70′) and Kevin Gameiro’s 92nd-minute strike handed Valencia an advantage and they will be favorites now to reach the final.
The final scoreline was a bit harsh on Real Betis. They bossed the possession and were the better team during most of the plays in the first leg. And having taken a 2-0 lead, the Beticos will no doubt be cursing themselves for the situation they find themselves in.
However, the visitors will be extra motivated as the final will be played at Benito Villamarin, Real Betis’ home stadium. But the form could act as an impediment. Betis have won just once in the last six games, though that win came in the last match, a 2-0 away win against Real Valladolid in La Liga.

VAL vs RB Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Valencia are in decent form coming into this match having gone nine games unbeaten, last tasting a defeat in January. While the home form is even better as the Los Che haven’t lost at Mestalla since November.
Real Betis were on a five-game winless run before ending it in the last match against Real Valladolid. At home, Los Che are a force and we back them to win the match.
