Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Valencia were struggling under Garry Neville, but ever since Pako Ayestaran took over the reins, los Che have been producing splendid performances in La Liga. Following a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sevilla, Valencia did well to shock Barcelona at Camp Nou at the weekend and the hosts will be looking to build on the triumph when they host Eibar at their Estadio de Mestalla on Wednesday evening. It has to be noted that goalkeeper Diego Alves produced probably the best performance of his career against Barca. Eibar came from behind to beat Real Sociedad in a small Basque derby on Saturday, but given that los Armeros often struggle on the travels, we predict that the in-form hosts will emerge triumphant in the upcoming football game. Over the years Valencia have turned their Estadio de Mestalla into a real fortress and there is every chance los Che will regain their place in top ten with a victory over Eibar.
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.
