To have more insights about Barcelona vs Valencia La Liga match, read our preview here below.

Barcelona

Barcelona started this season losing the match against Athletic Bilbao and lost points against Osasuna finishing with 2:2 at Estadio El Sadar. They need some time to give more confidence and team play to new squad members. Moreover, they have big troubles in the front, as few important players are injured and they even missed the international break. Ousmane Dembele injured for at least a month. Lionel Messi should be fit preparing to face Valencia. Luis Suarez also has trouble, which strongly affects team play in the attack. Now only Griezmann left from the experienced players fit and ready to face Valencia fo 100%. Barcelona spent 255m € on new players, however, it does not bring any benefit, since even Griezmann is still searching for the best game.

Barcelona played against Osasuna in 4th round with very rotated attack. However, even without them, Barcelona has very talented players. Guests controlled the game with 75% of possession but made twice less dangerous moments than their opponents. Match ended with a 2:2 draw. For such a defence, like have Catalonians, it is a very bad result, to miss 2 goals playing against such a weak team.

Barcelona has a bad experience playing against Valencia, as they lost the Final of Copa del Rey at the end of the last season. This time, Barcelona will play at home ground, which gives more advantage and confidence facing any opponent.

Valencia

Valencia looks very good lately. They have been finishing at 4th place the league for 2 years in a row, which is an excellent result. Los Ches gathered a very confident and talented team. Marcelino made very big work getting Valencia to a new level after 2 seasons break and bad results in 15/16 and 16/17 seasons. Bats won against Barcelona the Final of Copa del Rey after 12 years break. In general, a very tough and stubborn season is coming. Moreover, this year the group in the Champions League fell very tough. Immediately after the game with Barcelona, there will be a match against Chelsea.

Els Taronges must correctly distribute abilities and do everything to achieve a positive result. They prepared for hard work during the summer transfer market and acquired several new players. The biggest signing of the season was Jasper Cillessen in a deal exchanging Neto, Maxi Gomez who will change departured Santi Mina and Thierry Correia who should be next Cancelo.

Unfortunately, Carlos Soler and Cristiano Piccini will miss the next game due to injuries.
