Valencia is going to welcome the team of Barcelona in a rematch of game 1/2 finals in the tournament mentioned by football betting picks for the Cup of Spain. The meeting is practically irrelevant, since `Catalans` destroyed their rival with a 7:0 in the Camp Nou a week ago and may be comfortable about their place in the final. Check out our soccer forecast.
The appointment of Gary Neville at the helm of Valencia stirred up quite the doubts and criticisms. The former Manchester United defender and the English national team took over the team in December, but failed to make a single win in nine matches in La Liga so far. The 0:1 defeat against Real Betis at the weekend made the fans of `Bats` a bit desperate. They have not seen their favorite team so helpless for a long time. Valencia is located on the 13th place in the standings with only four points more than the first team over the relegation zone.
The striker Paco Alkaser is close to returning after healing his ankle injury, but is unlikely to fall into the lineup against Barcelona. Javi Fuego and Enzo Perez are out with security for the upcoming game.
Can anyone stop Barcelona? This is the question we all ask. Luis Enrique`s team scored the record tenth consecutive win in 2016 as it overcame Levante with 2:0 in the Primera. So `Blaugranas` keep the advance of three points ahead of the second and third Atletico in front of Real Madrid`s four. `Catalans` must be pretty happy that they won all three points on Sunday as they played the game at a fairly low revs. Levante deserved to take a point in this game, but thanks to Luis Suarez, Barca came to success. He once again scored in the door of the rivals and his contribution to the good results of Barcelona this season is huge.
`Catalans` will travel to Valencia almost in a complete team. The only absentee is Rafinha, who for a long time is healing an injury.
The guests are too powerful for the helpless team of Valencia, which is experiencing a variety of problems at the moment. The players have lost faith in their coach, the team spirit is shattered and our money`s on an easy win for Barcelona. Our soccer prediction is 2.
