Valencia vs Barcelona – La Liga: Barcelona has a great chance here…
To kill the only team that has been able to keep up with them in La Liga.
The 10-point advantage over Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid show how good the Catalan side has been when compared to the other traditional contenders.
The way Ernesto Valverde has been managing Messi’s genius and their strengths in the context of the league deserve a lot of credit, because it has put them in a very relaxed position when compared to their main rival.
But there is, also, a lot of respect for Valencia. The Catalan team played midweek in Italy, against Juventus, and resting Messi was a clear sign that Valverde understands what he has upon him this Sunday.
We won’t call it decisive, that’s certain, but fundamental on the delineation of distances that they want as high as possible, without giving Real Madrid any room to recover, because as we all know, no matter how “dead” they look, you can never count them out.
Valencia is the big surprise of the season, but also the great statement of a series of talents that exist in this team:
The talent of their coach, Marcelino, who returns to La Liga to show how much he knows, having the quality and ability to be in the top spots; the talent of players like Zaza or Gonçalo Guedes who were looking and found a context to expose their quality.
The talent of several youngsters that are asserting themselves on a team that can even ambition a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Valencia vs Barcelona – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The question “can Valencia defeat Barcelona?” will be one of the most repeated ones this week. The answer is yes, they can…
Because despite the good results, there isn’t in this Barcelona, yet, an image of invincibility.
And also because, on this Valencia side, the team lives believing that everything is possible. No matter how hard, in reality, that can end up being.
