Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio de Mestalla when Valencia and Atletico Madrid face each other in the La Liga derby on Matchday 24. Los Che experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss at Getafe at the weekend, but it is well known that Albert Celades’ men produce much better showings at home than on the travels. Valencia are eager to stay in the race for a place in the Champions League, but beating Atletico Madrid is easier said than done.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Granada in their last league match, with Angel Correa scoring the only goal of the match. Alvaro Morata is unlikely to recover in time to face Valencia, while fellow attacker Diego Costa is rated doubtful for Friday’s showdown. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards as los Che are tough to beat at home.
