This is easily the biggest test that each of these sides would face this early season, but Valencia who are overachieving have been the most impressive of the two sides. Los Che come into this game after of some more than impressive wins at the Mestalla. They have scored 15 goals at home this season including results like 5-0 vs Malaga, 4-0 vs. Sevilla, and Leganes 3-0. Barcelona would be their toughest opponents so far, but they would be up for a fight here judging by their impressive form this season, and we see them going toe-to-toe with the Catalans.
Barcelona currently tops the La Liga table, but just four points separate them from Valencia as they look to reclaim the league title from Real Madrid. Their 4 match winning streak was initially ended by Olympiacos in the Champions League, but they managed to put together another two-games winning run which was ended by Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday. They have a minor injury crisis, which saw Lionel Messi only able to play from the bench in their game against Juventus. They may have work to do to get a win here; as it is obvious Valencia are capable of getting at least a point here. Barcelona won their two games together last season in the league.
Valencia have lost their last two games against Barcelona, but they have scored at least two goals in those games. We believe both teams to score is a good tip for this game.
