Table-toppers Valencia face free-scoring Barcelona at the Mestalla tonight in what promises to be a mouthwatering encounter.
Both sides have been quick out of the blocks in La Liga this season and it is Valencia who currently lead the division.
Despite losing the influential Juan Mata to Chelsea in the summer, a buoyant Los Che are sitting pretty with nine points after three straight wins.
Meanwhile, fourth-placed Barca, who have seven points, ran riot on Saturday, thrashing Osasuna 8-0 in a dazzling display of attacking prowess.
Barca have scored 15 goals in their first three games so if you predict another goalfest tonight then over 3.5 goals is on offer at odds of 23/20.
In addition, over 4.5 goals is available at 13/5 – a tempting proposition when you consider that the Catalans’ last four matches have resulted in four or more goals.
Pep Guardiola’s men are priced up at 2/5 for the win in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, while the draw can be backed at 18/5.
Home side Valencia, who have failed to register a win against their opponents in their last five meetings, are rated as 25/4 outsiders.
While Barca are deadly going forward, their rearguard isn’t watertight. They shipped two goals at home in a 2-2 draw with AC Milan in the Champions League last week and it was the same scoreline in the league against Real Sociadad in their previous match.
Valencia striker Roberto Soldado will be looking to exploit any defensive cracks and the 3/2 on him to score at any time looks a solid bet. Likewise, odds of 6/1 on the Spaniard to score the first goal are tempting.
For those customers new to bwin and planning to use their free £25 bet on this match, backing Soldado to score first would see a return of £175 if the former Getafe man breaks the deadlock.
In-form Soldado, who netted 18 times in La Liga last season, has made an impressive start to this campaign with five goals in three games – in fact, he has scored all but one of Valencia’s goals so far.
However, much of the interest in the goalscorer markets will understandably revolve around Barca’s imperious attacking machine.
Lionel Messi is chalked up at 2/1 to get the first goal or a short 2/5 to score at any time, while punters who think he can score three or more at the Mestalla can back such an outcome at 7/1.
Former Valencia striker David Villa will also be looking to torment his old club and he is available at 5/2 to notch the first goal of the night, while winger Pedro is a 4/1 shot to open the scoring.
