It’s been a tough campaign for Valencia, who has struggled for form in La Liga and lost its coach Nuno Espirito Santo who resigned last week. But in his place comes Man United legend Gary Neville, and his first task will be to stop Spain’s top team Barcelona at the Mestalla on Dec. 5, which is led by superstar Leo Messi. Watch the live stream below!
Fresh from a 4-0 win against Real Sociedad, Barcelona has won 6 straight games in La Liga as they sit 4 points clear at the top of the table. Their winning run is thanks in no small part to Uruguayan star Luis Suarez and Brazilian hotshot Neymar, who contributed with tons of goals. And now with the returning Messi back in the fold, after recovering from an injury two weeks ago, they will be a formidable force against their opponents. CLICK HERE to watch the live stream!
Valencia has been patchy this season, losing 3 of their last 7 matches as they occupy 9th spot in La Liga, however their defense has been water-tight. Los Che, as they are nicknamed in Spain, have only conceded 10 goals in their opening 13 matches.
Valencia’s defense will have to be on its guard against a free-scoring Barcelona team who has 33 scores in their 13 matches, including 14 goals from Neymar and 12 goals from Suarez. But Valencia will pose their own threat in front of the goal through their leading scorer Paco Alcácer. There could be a lot of goals in this one!
The visitors are likely to be without injured French defender Jeremy Mathieu, while Valencia are missing Javi Fuego and Joao Cancelo through suspension. Sofiane Feghouli, Alvaro Negredo and Shkodran Mustafi are on the long-term Valencia injury-list.
