Barcelona vs Valencia Prediction & Betting tips
Leader FC Barcelona hopes this weekend again a big step towards the Spanish national title in the home match against Valencia. However, the visitors are working on a strong series.
FC Barcelona may still continue to dream of a new triplete. Last Wednesday evening, in the Copa del Rey, Lionel Messi and associates once again gave away their business card by crossing Seville with no less than 6-1. With that, the 2-0 defeat of a week earlier was amply brushed away and the Catalan football giant placed himself before the semifinals of the Spanish Cup Tournament. “We’re going for all the prizes,” Messi said afterwards.
Messi is of course both the main asset and the weak spot of FC Barcelona, in the sense that the Catalans simply can not live without him. When the little Argentinian gets rest from trainer Ernesto Valverde, the Blaugrana get it tricky, as we recently saw against Sevilla (2-0 defeat) and Leganes (3-1 victory). The fact that a top team like FC Barcelona is so dependent on just one player is of course crazy. With nineteen goals and ten assists, he is personally directly involved in half of the total Catalan goals in La Liga. Valverde surprised this season already several times with reserve for his star, but he also will see that his team simply can not do without its number ten. In addition, he has to miss a strongholder this weekend with the suspended Sergio Busquets.
The sun begins to shine again carefully above the Mestalla. Valencia had a disastrous start to the league, but thanks to victories at Celta de Vigo (1-2) and Villarreal (3-0), Los Che have European football in their sights. In addition, the club from the Orange City can continue to hope for success in the cup tournament. Valencia was on the verge of elimination in the quarterfinals against Getafe on Tuesday-evening, but thanks to two goals from gold cock Rodrigo Moreno, he scored the last four of the Copa del Rey.
Valencia has regained confidence in the last few weeks, although Club legend Mario Kempes does not think the leak is already up: ‘We are still playing too changeable. One game we play the tiles from the roof, and then a week later through the ice to sink. We have to become more constant. ” Valencia will in any case need a top match to stay upright in the Camp Nou. In the midfield, however, visitors with injuries from Goncalo Guedes and Geoffrey Kondogbia are severely battered. Probably Francis Coquelin together with Dani Parejo will form the duo central to the midfield.
