The LTL Number Crunch: Are Valencia Having the Luck of the Draw?

Draws are big business in La Liga this season and whilst Villarreal (11) and Athletic Bilbao (12) have racked up more than their fair share it is Valencia who currently lead the way with the Gameweek 23 0-0 draw at home to Real Sociedad being the 13th of their season.

Currently residing in 8th place just outside the European places after a testing start to their campaign where new signings and the added pressure of the Champions League seemed to affect form it begs the question are Los Che better off with their baker’s dozen of “empates” or will these drawn come back to bite them come season end? Leading the Line delved into the numbers and took a look.


So there you have it. From the games drawn this season Marcelino’s side could currently be four places and six points better off at the time of compilation if results had gone further in their favour. With 15 games still to go this season these single pointers could still prove vital in what is shaping up to be one of the most competitive La Liga tables in quite some time.
