Valencia vs Monaco
International Club Friendlies
Date: Saturday, 20 July 2019
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Christ-Roi.
Valencia stunned the footballing world in their last game when they defeated the league leaders Barcelona to lift the Copa Del Rey.
The squad enjoyed less than 1/3rd of the possession in that game and made far fewer attempts at goal than their foes. However, a goal each from Gameiro and Rodrigo in the opening forty-five minutes was just enough to see them through the game.
Monaco were dismal in their league campaign and scraped through without falling into the relegation zone by merely two points. They have not been faring any better in the friendlies so far either and have been suffering back to back defeats in their last two fixtures.
They are certainly the underdogs in this one and could succumb to a loss when they square up against the Spanish outfit on Saturday.

Valencia vs Monaco Prediction
Valencia’s last defeat came two months ago when they crashed out of the Europa League in their clash with Arsenal.
The squad were unbeaten in their last three games in the La Liga and also went on to hand the Spanish giants Barcelona a shock upset.
Their counterparts, on the other hand, have been inconsistent in finding a winning run of form in their recent matches. They have also been struggling to find the back of the net more than once in their last four games and are unlikely to pose a threat to the side from Spain.
The game is certain to see the latter come out on top and you can expect them to do so with a sizeable goal difference.
