Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Valencia is visiting Zenit Sint Petersburg in the Petrovsky Stadium in the Champions League group stage 2015/2016. Zenit Petersburg is the only team in the group stage that managed to win all four of their games and is already qualified for the knock out stage. Valencia on the other hand was able to collect 6 points by winning 2 times and loosing 2 times, the team from Spain will be warned; games in the far cold Russia are difficult for every team in the Champions League. We predict Zenit to beat Valencia and bring them in real trouble in order to get to the knock out stage of the Champions League. which will bring manager Nuno Espírito Santo's in a difficult position.
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.
