Match: Spain Copa del Rey / Valencia Vs Barcelona

Valencia: In poor shape (Recent Form: LLLLLW)

Valencia lost the first-leg to Barcelona (0:1), so they’re facing a difficult task. Besides, team is in poor shape with 5 consecutive losses across all competitions. Valencia take on Barcelona on Thursday at Mestalla in the second-leg of Copa del Rey semi-final. “I see it as a very difficult match, we know that they are a tough opponent, the stats are there to be seen, they have only gone two games without scoring, but we are thinking that there can’t be two without a third. We are going to try and defend very well as we did at their place, but we must attack on the counter better at Mestalla. We are going to fight with everything we have,” said coach Marcelino. Murillo and Pereira are unavailable.

Barcelona: Aiming for another Copa del Rey final (Recent Form: DWWWWL)
Barcelona got the advantage in first match and it appears that they’re close to reaching another final in Copa del Rey. “Taking into account the offensive potential that Valencia have and playing in Mestalla, I have the feeling that to get through we will have to score. The fact that it is a semi-final means there will be motivation from the start. Each team will be loyal to their style and they are a team who are difficult to break down and quick on the counter-attack,” said coach Ernesto Valverde. Vermaelen and Dembele remain injured, Pique is a doubt but he’s expected to be available.


Summing up, it looks like this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Valencia need to take risks and play for a win if they’re to go through. On the other hand, Barcelona will simply try to win an another match and perhaps a few goals may be scored in this outing.
