Our football match prediction:
Valencia were struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season, but the team’s recent performances are giving fans a reason for optimism. Los Che have been in a fine form in 2017 and they are definitely capable of picking up all three points from Saturday’s football match against Eibar. Valencia have recorded only two wins at their Estadio de Mestalla this season, but seeing that los Armeros are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the hosts will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Matchday 21. Eibar did well to beat Deportivo La Coruna (3-1) in their last league fixture, but it has to be noted that the Basque outfit recorded only one victory in previous seven away fixtures in the Spanish top flight. When the two teams met at Estadio de Mestalla last season Valencia recorded a routine 4-0 win over Eibar.
Highligted Player (Cherychev):
Probably the most famous Russian footballer never to have played for a domestic club, Denis Cheryshev was born in Nizhny Novgorod, but began his career at Sporting Gijon as his father played for the Spanish side at the time. The talented winger eventually caught the eye of Real Madrid and went on to spend eight years in the youth academy at Santiago Bernabeu before he was given a chance to impress on senior level. Due to a fierce competition for places in Madrid, Cheryshev was forced to gain much needed first team experience via loan spells at Sevilla, Villarreal and Valencia, and he showed a great deal of potential during those stints, proving los Blancos were wrong to let him leave. Chersyhev has been in and out of the Russia national team since making his debut in 2012, but there is a good chance he will become an important member of Sbornaya Komanda as soon as he secures regular playing time at club level. The Russian footballer is capable of operating on either wing or through the middle, and he has proved to be quite prolific in terms of both goals and assists.
