Spain: La Liga – Round 13
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
The match between the leaders of the Spanish championship is always an interesting and amazing show. This time the main opponent of Barcelona at the champion’s race will be València that had improved its position after several terrible seasons. Now València is in a perfect fit ant its match against Barcelona will become central for the 13th round of the Spanish La Liga.
The Bats prior to the start of the current season were not dreaming about the fight for the title. Now Valencia is rather strong and has all chances to take the place at the zone of the Champions League and to present its fans the matches with best world grandees. The most interesting fact is that the club has finished spending great amounts of money on football players and the results have come. The team is headed by Marcelinho. Who is very promising Spanish coach and whose arrival is associated with the new rebirth of Valencia. But you shouldn’t forget about a perfect work that was done at transfer market – goalkeeper Neto, full backs Gabriel and Murillo, halfbacks Kondogbia and Guedes and forward Zaza (one of the best goalscorers at the championship). Now Valencia takes the 2nd place at the tournament bracket and in only 4 points behind Barcelona with the series of 8 winnings in a row.
At this stage Barcelona is good. It has lost the points only one time out of 12 starting rounds of the championship. Ernesto Valverde had given to his players good dynamics and after this Barcelona ceased to attack through the great number of short passes in the middle of a field but are acting more dynamically. With such tactical changes Messi has shined with new colors, Paulinho ia feeling quite well at the field and Semedo has closed a problem zone of the right back. Barca has some problems now that are connected with the injuries of many players from the starting line-up - André Gomes, Dembélé, Mascherano, Piqué, Sergi Roberto and Rafinha.
Barcelona this season is really gorgeous and even Valencia fades at the background of good results of the team. Direct rivals will meet during this match but not equal teams by their class and this fact makes the guests the favorites for this match.
