After the show they put up at the Santiago Bernabéu, Valencia’s fans expectations are now higher…
The fans are salivating during this international break, waiting for the next encounter against the other big club in Madrid.
It is a huge challenge. Marcelino, however, seems to be a manager well-prepared to face what is put upon them.
The Valencia’s team is already showing good dynamic and playing quality, wrapped up in a Spanish fierce attitude that allow them to differentiate from the rest.
It may be seen as an instant growth, but the signs of this new coach’s arrival are already showing on a team that has won against Las Palmas in the 1st round and got 1 point away at Real Madrid. They couldn’t be more confident.
Atlético de Madrid has had a start of the season marked by several issues that ended up affecting the team’s performance.
Unable to sign any new players on this last transfer window, Atlético is also playing these first matches at home, while their new stadium Wanda Metropolitano isn’t ready for its debut.
A draw in Girona was a bad sign for Diego Simeone’s team, who just renewed contract with him this year.
It was even worse because Griezmann got sent off, so he will not be available for this match. The win at Las Palmas served to ease up the environment.
On a week where they will travel to Roma, to play their Champions League match, this match is not ideal for their schedule.
Valencia vs Atlético Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite having more confidence on Valencia’s current momentum,
I don’t believe that Atlético will be overwhelmed by Marcelino’s side, due to the experience of ther players and their ability to nullify some offensive sectors.
But in the dynamic created by two fierce teams who are willing to fight for the ball,
it is very likely that both teams are able to score here, fighting for a win that would offer them more insurance,
but never disregarding the soothing importance of a draw.
