What does the future hold for Valencia?

Without context, seeing that los Che, one of Spain’s biggest clubs, are 11th would suggest it’s been a catastrophic campaign.

But, actually, Head Coach José Bordalás, who arrived under a cloud last summer, has done a fantastic job.

Last month, they were a penalty shootout away from winning the Copa del Rey, a trophy that would’ve brought with it silverware and European qualification.

Around that final, los Murciélagos’ La Liga form has fallen off a cliff, failing to win any of their last eight, including last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Espanyol.

But, the context that must be given is that owner Peter Lim has decimated the squad, selling pretty much any player they get an offer for.

This has seen the following players all leave the club since the summer of 2020:

Francis Coquelin, Dani Parejo, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Ferran Torres, Rodrigo, Kevin Gameiro, Lee Kang-in, Rubén Sobrino, Daniel Wass and many more.

In line with this, their two remaining stars José Luis Gayà and Carlos Soler are also set to depart, as leaked by El Confidencial.

Last season’s 13th place finish wasn’t enough to save Javi Gracia so, despite having the backing of the fans, Bordalás could be gone after this game.

Celta de Vigo meanwhile, having finished eighth last season, were hoping to challenge for European places, but that hasn’t materialised.

O Celtiña actually went above Valencia last weekend by beating Elche 1-0 at Balaídos; Denis Suárez the scorer.

So, Eduardo Coudet’s side have won their last two home games, but their terrible form in February and March ended their top seven push.

There’s little at stake but this one should be entertaining at Mestalla.

As mentioned academy graduates José Luis Gayà and Carlos Soler, who’ve made 290 and 221 appearances for Valencia respectively, could be leaving after this game.

In goal, Giorgi Mamardashvili could be restored after Jasper Cillessen made just his second appearance of 2022 against Espanyol.

Gonçalo Guedes, another who might be on the move, and Bryan Gil, who’s shone on loan from Spurs, could also return to the XI.

Nolito got a lovely sendoff at Balaídos last weekend and rightly so given that he’s made 181 appearances for Celta over two spells.

He, Thiago Galhardo and Iago Aspas will lead the attack but Santi Mina won’t feature after being sentenced to five years in prison.

With Hugo Mallo out due to a long-term knee injury, Kevin Vázquez will start at right-back.
