Atleti take on Valencia away in a very demanding LaLiga fixture on Saturday. The game is to be played at 4.15pm CET at Mestalla.
Our team beat FC Barcelona in the previous league match thanks to a fantastic goal from Carrasco. It was our fifth straight win and meant we went unbeaten for the 24th straight game. Simeone’s men are currently second with 20 points – three less than leaders Real Sociedad but with two games in hand. We’ll now look to keep our positive streak going at Mestalla.
Valencia, on the other hand, have picked up 12 points and are ninth – eight of which have been earned at home. In their last match at Mestalla, they beat Real Madrid 4-1. The previous time Atleti played at Valencia’s stadium, the game ended 2-2.
