Barcelona hosts Valencia in round 14 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, December 19th at Camp Nou (Barcelona).
The Catalans are holding a terrible season in the local arena, and it is their worst in 35 years. Fortunately, Messi and the company had no problems in the Champions League – they advanced to the 1/8 finals from the second position in the quartet. Barcelona has significantly slowed down in terms of the efficiency of the offensive line, where Messi scores mainly from the penalty spot and the rest of the players are not even close to top scorers. It is difficult to name the reason for the Catalans' tournament failure. The squad of the team looks powerful, and the coaching staff can change the leaders who are losing their ground. Pique and Busquets cannot play now, but there are talented Araujo, Umtiti, De Jong, and recently signed Pjanic. Messi doesn’t show his best game, and no one can motivate the Argentinean to work again with 100% dedication.
Javi Gracia’s men are in the middle of the standings. Unlike the Barcelona grandee, no one expected outstanding results from Valencia this season. The club parted ways with a range of leaders who were replaced exclusively by the trainees of the club academy. The status of a middle peasant suits the Bats, and if the team makes it to the European cups, the season will even be successful. The team still has enough skilled and experienced footballers - goalkeeper Silessen, defenders Gaya, Gabriel, Vass, and Diakhabi, midfielders Soler, Guedes, and Lee, as well as forwards Gomez and Gameiro. A big bet is placed on the young talents of Valencia - Musah, Racic, Vallejo, Correia, and Guillamon.
No one has to wait for an easy walk in the upcoming game. Modern Barcelona should win solely on the class of footballers, but the game characteristics of the Catalans look depressing. Valencia desperately clung to points in the last rounds, and it will surely offer battle to the formidable favorite.
