Match Preview of Barcelona vs Valencia

Barcelona will be looking to put their midweek Champions League disappointment behind them when they continue their La Liga campaign away to Valencia on Saturday night.

The Catalan outfit are currently second in the table, three points behind leaders Real Madrid, while Valencia occupy ninth position, having picked up 15 points from their first 11 matches of the season.

Valencia had been on a five-game unbeaten run heading into last weekend's home clash with Mallorca, but they suffered a 2-1 loss to Javier Aguirre's side, which was certainly a setback ahead of the visit of Barcelona.

Los Che have again struggled with consistency this season, winning four, drawing three and losing four of their 11 matches to collect 15 points, which has left them in ninth spot in the table; they are only three points behind sixth-placed Athletic Bilbao but just four ahead of Celta Vigo in 13th.

Valencia finished fourth in back-to-back campaigns in 2017-18 and 2018-19, but they have been ninth, 13th and ninth in their last three seasons, and Gennaro Gattuso is currently the manager tasked with helping the Spanish giants secure a return to European football.

Our Predicted Lineups

Barcelona possible starting lineup:Mamardashvili; Correia, Paulista, Guillamon, Gaya; Musah, Almeida, Foulquier; Lino, Cavani, Kluivert

Valencia possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Mamardashvili; Correia, Paulista, Guillamon, Gaya; Musah, Almeida, Foulquier; Lino, Cavani, Kluivert

Who will win the match?

We say: Barcelona 1-0 Valencia. Valencia will certainly be the fresher of the two sides, and it has been an emotional week for Barcelona. Xavi will be demanding a response from his players on Saturday evening, though, and we are expecting the Catalan outfit to return to winning ways at Mestalla.
