Valencia – Las Palmas : Preview & Prediction
Good game is what awaits us this Tuesday for the return of the knockout stages of the Copa del Rey of Spain, when in the Mestalla Stadium the cast of Valencia welcome to Las Palmas.
Those led by Marcelino could overcome in the first leg and with five minutes remaining Rodrigo appeared to put the equality to a goal and therefore come with some confidence for the game on Tuesday.
The Mestalla team arrives with great motivation after their 2-1 victory over Girona that allows them to break the three-game losing streak without being able to win and with this remains firm in the third place of the League, for this game Marcelino is very likely to go from the beginning with the Italian striker Simone Zaza who did not play the last weekend due to a suspension.
More than the offensive issue, the problem of Valencia goes through the defense every time the team has received a goal in each of its last eight games, regardless of whether it was won or lost.
Meanwhile, at the moment the cast of Las Palmas have had a rather irregular season and come to lose at home 1-2 against Eibar with which those led by Paco Jemez added their fifth game without knowing of victories and with it they remain in the last place of the classification with only eleven points in eighteen games, but the team is expected to improve in this second half of the season since salvation is only five points and in the absence of a wheel can be achieved.
For this game, Jemez relies heavily on what Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri can do who is in a good moment and it was even he who converted the goal in the first leg.
These teams already faced each other in this same scenario for the La Liga game and it was Valencia’s triumph by 1-0 and with this the cast of Mestalla made clear its superiority in direct confrontations, and that is that Valencia has won six of the twelve games disputed by three of Las Palmas; but beware that despite this the games have been entertaining with both teams making themselves present on the scoreboard in four of the last five games.
It is true that Valencia has shown superiority in the score in the two games of the current season, the game on Tuesday is different since it is not for three points but for a classification to the next stage of an important tournament such as the Copa del King.
Here Las Palmas can not go back to keep the tie due to the goal received in the first leg and if we take into account the defensive problems presented by Valencia in their last games because we trust that it breaks the defensive block and more the obligation to win the premises to be local, it makes us wait for an entertaining game where we believe that the value of the game is in the Both Anotan.
