Valencia – Barcelona: Today’s Soccer Prediction
Valencia ranks 3rd in La Liga with 40 points in 22 league games. Italian Simone Zaza is the team’s top scorer in the championship, and he managed to score 10 times so far. The hosts are in a very weak form with 5 consecutive defeats in all competitions. After losing the semi-finals on the Barcelona field (score 1-0), the “bats” lost a championship match, 1-0 on the Atletico Madrid field a few days ago. The hosts can not rely on this injury match Andreas Pereira and Jeison Murillo.
Domenech – Gaya, Garay, Paulista, Montoya – Lato, Kondogbia, Parejo, Soler – Moreno, Mina
On the other side, Barcelona is ranked first in the league’s first league in Spain, with the team managing to gather 58 points after 22 stages. Argentinean Lionel Messi is the best scorer in the championship, with 20 goals scored so far. The Catalans crossed a very good time with 13 points accumulated in the last 5 championship games. After the home win with Alaves (score 2-1), the guests drew the previous round on the field at Espanyol, score 1-1. Barcelona lost the last time on the Valencia field in a match of the Spanish Cup disputed in March 2008. Ousmane Dembele will not perform this trip because of medical problems.
Cillessen – Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Alba – Rakitic, Paulinho, Busquets, Iniesta – Messi, Suarez
Barcelona has managed to impose itself on the field but it does not have to treat this game superficially because Valencia is extremely dangerous on the ground. The stake is huge, a place in the last act of the Spanish Cup, so I expect the tension to rise to the stake of the match. It is very possible to witness a spectacular game with many phases of the goal and the goals will definitely not delay to appear. My recommendations, therefore, about this duel are based solely on goals.
