Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Valencia will be looking to put an end to their five-game losing run when they welcome Real Sociedad to their Estadio de Mestalla on Saturday evening. Los Che are low on confidence ahead of the visit of La Real, and, no doubt, boss Ruben Baraja is eager to record his first win on his new job. Samu Castillejo is back from suspension, but seeing that key attacker Edinson Cavani continues to miss out with injury, home win should not be considered.
The Basques, on the other hand, aim to stay in the Champions League berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Valencia’s dressing room. As for the visiting team, David Silva is a major doubt, while all Aritz Elustondo, Sadiq Umar, and Jon Pacheco miss out with injuries. Keep in mind, though, that Valencia and Real Sociedad have shared the spoils in each of their last four meetings in La Liga.
Highlighted Player (Edinson Cavani):
Edinson Cavani is a professional footballer who plays for Paris Saint-Germain as a striker. The Uruguayan attacker was born in Salto on 14 February, 1987 and he began his senior career at Danubio. In 2007 he moved to Europe, signing a deal with Serie A outfit Palermo.
After scoring 34 goals in 109 league appearances for the Sicilian outfit, he joined Napoli in 2010. You should have in mind that Cavani scored a brace on his Napoli debut against Elfsborg in the Europa League. The Uruguay forward scored 78 goals in 104 Serie A games for the Partenopei and, as a result, big-spending French club PSG decided to sign him in 2013.
Cavani scored 19 goals for les Parisiens in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign, but he was in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shadow during the season and he started a number of games from the bench.
