Barcelona must forget about the euphoria of their victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the European Champions League match last midweek, because the Catalan giants will be faced with difficult matches in the continuation of the Spanish League this weekend. Barcelona will face Valencia, the match will take place on Monday morning (07/09) local time at Estadio de Mestalla.
Valencia was considered one of the strongest teams in La Liga last season, because in fact they were able to finish 4th ranked in the final standings. However, Los Che started the campaign this season with a disappointing appearance. From seven Jornada that have taken place, Valencia is only able to collect not less than 8 points, which causes them to sit 14th in the current standings.
Meanwhile, Barcelona did have a good start, only from their last three league games, the Catalan giants have never won with two draws and one win. Fortunately, a series of negative results did not make the Catalan giants lose their position at the top of the standings. Barcelona seems more favored to win later in the match.
