Reason for Valencia vs Barcelona Predictions
The home team started this week down in the 12th spot in La Liga, and they are much closer to the relegation zone than they are challenging for the major places. Valencia is rarely a team you would expect to be pushing for the top spot in the league, but this season’s efforts have been poor, even for their standards. Valencia carries in stats of seven wins against nine draws and eight defeats with 36 goals scored and 38 conceded. They have allowed the same number of goals against them as Cadiz, who are second from the bottom of the league. That’s something the coaching staff knows they must improve on and fast. The hosts have lost three and drawn two of their last five outings at this level, with just two points taken from the 15 available to them in that spell. Carlos Soler plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Barca entered the week in fourth place, clinging on to the Champions League place. They have a tough few weeks ahead if they are to hold their ground with just three points between themselves and Villarreal, who are down in seventh. This push for the top four may be something new to the Barcelona players, but it’s a fight they must win, or the club will miss out on the millions of pounds that accompany playing in UEFA’s elite competition. There are far more than three points on the line here. Barca must show they are up for the fight. The visitors arrive in town with three wins and two draws in their last five league games. They recorded back-to-back wins in the league, beating Alaves 1-0 away from home with the winning goal scored by de Jong with 87 minutes on the clock. Adama Traore finally is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Gavi showed that he is a great player, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Barcelona is the favorite in this match, and their previous duel with Valencia was resolved with the 3:2 Barca win. The away side should get back home with all three points.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
