Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio de Mestalla will be packed when Valencia and Celta Vigo, the two old rivals, go head to head in the La Liga round 14. Los Che aim to make amends for a massive 5-1 loss to Real Madrid and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Galicians. All Pepelu, Selim Amallah, and Alberto Mari are sidelined with injuries, while both Andre Almeida and Mouctar Diakhaby will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Ruben Baraja is likely to stick to the 4-4-2 formation.
Os Celeste, on the other hand, aim to recover from an unlucky 4-3 loss to Athletic Bilbao. As both sides are determined to return to winning ways in the Spanish top flight this weekend, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Peru midfielder Renato Tapia is back from suspension, while all Hugo Sotelo, Joseph Aidoo, and Mihailo Ristic are out of contention through injuries.
Highlighted Team (Valencia):
Founded on March 18, 1919, Valencia FC are a Spanish football club that compete in La Liga. Los Che play their home games at Estadio de Mestalla, the stadium which was opened back in May, 1923. The capacity of the venue is 50,000. Seeing that bats are quite common in Valencia, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Bats.
Valencia made it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2000, 2001), but they were beaten in the title games by Real Madrid and Bayern Munchen respectively. The Spanish club, though, did well to win the UEFA Cup title in the 2003/2004 season, with the team beating Marseille in the final of the competition.
A number of top-class footballers were part of the club in the past, with the likes of Pablo Aimar, Ruben Baraja, David Albelda, Santiago Canizares, John Carew and Gaizka Mendieta all playing for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. Valencia main colors are white and black, whilst they often where orange jerseys and shorts when playing on the travels.
