After a mixed start to the season, which Valencia will turn up this week?
Last weekend, los Murciélagos were beaten 2-1 at Campo de Fútbol de Vallecas by Rayo Vallecano.
Nico’s own goal doubled Rayo’s lead, meaning Mouctar Diakhaby’s goal in stoppage time was too little too late.
A week earlier, Gennaro Gattuso’s team had demolished Getafe 5-1, with this seemingly the start of the new-improved Valencia.
Now though, los Che need points to get back on track, having lost three of their last four.
Celta de Vigo meanwhile kick off two places and one point better off than their hosts.
Eduardo Coudet’s side won back-to-back games, beating Girona and Cádiz, before last Saturday night’s heavy 4-1 defeat in the capital.
Atlético Madrid, eventually, swatted O Celtiña aside; Gabri Veiga’s first senior goal a mere consolation.
Will there be a winner at Mestalla?
