17:15 programmed one of the most interesting clashes of the day, Valencia and Barcelona being protagoistele, following the two to meet on “Mestalla”, where I expect to impose the Catalan group.
Valencia is not the time to threaten a team in the Spanish league, with a quite good, but some developments are extremely weak. “Bats” were disappointed in previous seasons, finishing 12th in the championship, continuing in the same note in the current season, this time being in the bottom of the ranking, occupying exactly the position of 15th, It is only two points of the “red”. In the eight rounds so far, Valencia has won just nine points, all obtained in the last four games, managing victories with Alaves, Sporting Gijon and Leganes. Cesare Prandelli prepared team goal difference is negative, the beginning of this championship managed to score 11 goals, but cashed four more.
Barcelona is undoubtedly the favorite of the clashes, the most valuable team, but with better evolutions in this season. Catalan band is in good form in the last two games managed to score victories with Deportivo La Coruna in the championship, but with Manchester City in the Champions League, each time imposing 4-0. Grouping “blaugrana” occupies a modest fourth place, but are just two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid in the eight stages so far managed to collect 16 points after five wins and a draw, suffering two defeats. It should be noted that last trip was not bode well for his band Luis Enrique, losing on the field at Celta Vigo, in a shameful manner, cashing four goals, three of them in the first half.
