Barcelona vs Valencia Prediction
Quite frankly, after the way they were eliminated from the Champions League, Barca needs the domestic double to save face.
Considering that both Real Madrid and Atleti are out of the competition, and the only obstacle remaining is Valencia, the Blaugrana has high hopes for landing the trophy for a fifth consecutive time.
Valencia lost four of their last seven games, whereas Barca won all of their important games in the recent match-days except for their Liverpool second leg.
Importantly, h2h ties clearly place the defending champions as the favorites. They registered the last five wins in a row and impressively is on a scoring streak against Valencia for the last 25 ties.
Moreover, only twice has Barca lost against Valencia in the last ten years.
While it’s sure certain injury concerns will be bothering the Spanish champions, their majestic squad depth will be enough to wade through this challenge.
Count on the wounded Barcelona squad to give it all they can on the pitch to deliver. Furthermore, Ernesto Valverde needs this win to probably keep his job.
