Valencia – Espanyol : Preview & Prediction
Valencia is, historically, one of the best clubs in Spain. With in particular 6 championships and 8 cups, it has one of the best records in the country. He has seen iconic players like David Villa, David Silva, Juan Mata and Dani Parejo, among others. Regularly European, the club was in the knockout stages of the Champions League this year. In La Liga, the Ché club has a little more trouble with a 9th place. With the Champions League and 5th place officially out of reach, Valencia will have to aim for 6th place, 3 points ahead and occupied by Getafe (who is one game behind) to hope to play Europe next year.
Founded in 1900, RCD Espanyol or Espanyol de Barcelona, is the second club in the city, behind FC Barcelona. In total, he has played 74 seasons in the first division in its history. Next year will not be the 75th, however. And for good reason, the club is red lantern this season and has been officially relegated for a few days already, since the match against its eternal rival, FC Barcelona.
Valence is 4th at home in the league with 10 wins, 7 draws and only 1 defeat.
Valencia have scored 28 goals and conceded 16 in 18 La Liga games at home this season.
Since the recovery, Valence has had a sad record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses.
The Espanyol de Barcelona is 15th in the away league with 3 wins, 4 draws and 11 losses.
Espanyol have scored 12 goals and conceded 26 in 18 La Liga away games this season.
Since the takeover, Barcelona’s Espanyol won their first match before drawing a draw and losing 7 in a row.
Valencia, if it wants to continue to believe in Europe, must get rid of an adversary a priori largely within its reach. Officially relegated and beaten for 7 straight games, Espanyol are expected to suffer an 8th straight loss. Valencia victory!
