Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Estadio de Mestalla when Valencia and Atletico Madrid square off against each other in what is the most entertaining clash of Sunday’s program. Los Che have been having their ups and downs of late and it has to be noted that they managed to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao. Gary Neville’s troops did well to beat Malaga at Estadio La Rosaleda in midweek and their fresh confidence will be tested in Saturday’s encounter against Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone’s troops outclassed Real Sociedad on Tuesday evening, with the team managing to keep yet another clean sheet and, no doubt, the visitors will rely on their rock-solid defence against Valencia. Los Che are tough to beat at home and we predict that the two teams will play out a low-scoring draw at Estadio de Mestalla on Matchday 28. Atletico will remain in second place in the standings should they happen to share the spoils with Gary Neville’s team.
Highligted Player (Godin):
Diego Godin is considered one of the best defenders in the history of Uruguayan football. The Atletico Madrid centre back played for Cerro and Nacional in the Uruguayan national championship between 2003 and 2007 and in August, 2017 he signed a deal with La Liga side Villarreal. Godin made 91 league appearances for the Yellow Submarine and on 4 August he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan defender won the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy with los Rojiblancos, while making it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2014, 2016). He won the Europa League trophy in the 2011/2012 season with Atletico Madrid as well. Speaking of his international career, Godin clinched the 2011 Copa America trophy with Uruguay. Despite playing as a centre back, Diego Godin often scores after set pieces and you should have in mind that he scored eight goals for Diego Simeone’s team in the 2013/2014 season (all competitions).
