Valencia vs Juventus
Date: Wednesday, 19 September 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia).
Valencia are back in the top continental competition and their first challenge is going to be very tough as they are hosting Juventus.
Home side had a very successful last season as they managed to secure their place in the top four in the Primera Liga after several disappointing campaigns.
However, Marcelino’s side is still searching for their first victory in the current one as they were involved in three draws so far.
Although playing pretty well in the back, Valencia’s main trouble is productivity as they managed to find the back of the oppositions’ net just three times.
The Los Che need to start converting their chances into goals more frequently of they want to have the repetition of the previous season.
The popularity of Serie A has declined in the past ten years, but this time, there are some very positive trends which could attract the world’s best players.
Juventus became a very serious contender in the football market as they managed to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
The Old Lady have the perfect record in the opening four rounds in the Serie A and are the top contenders for the domestic title although the competition is fierce.
Juve also might reach the very late stages in the Champions League and we shouldn’t be surprised if they get involved into the title battle.
Valencia vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Although both teams have been participating in the European competitions very frequently, this is going to be their first head to head clash.
Valencia vs Juventus: Prediction
The hosts are having early troubles with their finishing, and Juventus are too serious to miss this chance of bringing all three points home. The visitors are strong favourites and we believe they are going to celebrate the victory in this one.
Although Valencia haven’t scored too many goals so far in the season, Juventus have managed to keep the clean sheet just once in the last seven matches, including the friendly ones. Therefore, in this one we are expecting both teams to find the back of the net.
