Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio de Mestalla when Valencia and Barcelona square off against each other in the La Liga derby. Los Che experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Mallorca, with Dani Parejo being sent off after 51 minutes. The experienced midfielder misses the Barca game through suspension, while key attacker Rodrigo Moreno is rated doubtful.
The Catalan giants failed to impress in their last league fixture, but thanks to Leo Messi’s goal the title holders defeated Granada at their Camp Nou. New boss Quique Setien is eager to help Barca footballers regain a much-needed confidence, and given the current situation in the Valencia dressing room, away win should be considered. Luis Suarez remains in the recovery room, and in his absence, summer signing Antoine Griezmann will lead the line for the visitors.
