Valencia vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

Atletico Madrid will be playing their fifth match in a span of fifteen days and fatigue could become an issue. Also they are coming after a tough fixture on Wednesday against Bayern Munich and Diego Simeone is expected to rotate his squad. They are already missing the defensive duo Godin and Gimenez through injuries. And are expected to adopt a cautious approach.

While Valencia could be a team on confidence after getting back to winning ways and they will rely on home advantage. They have the quality players at their disposal and a fully fit squad. If silly mistakes are avoided they could salvage a point from this crucial fixture.
