Valencia - Atletico: central match of the tour
14-Feb-20, 20.00 GMT
The match between Valencia and Atl?tico will be held on Valentine's Day, Friday, which is very frustrating for many Valencians. They had other plans for this evening, not related to the Mestalla stadium, but everything changed. Literally 4-5 days before the match, several meetings were moved in time due to the fact that the King Cup semifinalist had previously played.
The defeat of Getafe in the last round threw Valencia to seventh place in the table. However, the position of the "bats" is far from critical. “Valencia” is only two points behind the fourth “Atletico”, and from the third “Getafe” by five.
Judging by the statistics of points earned, “Valencia” at home and “Valencia” away are two different teams. After the New Year, this difference has become even more noticeable. At home, Valencia defeated Eibar (1-0), Barcelona (2-0) and Celta (1-0), but on the road the bats lost to Mallorca (1-4) and Getafe "(0: 3).
However, against “Getafe” “Valencia” had to play without half of the main players. Many of them are already recovering. In the Valencia’s infirmary, there are still Esequiel Garay, Manu Vallejo and Cristiano Piccini. Alessandro Florenzi is disqualified. But Denis Cherishev, Jasper Silessen, Kevin Gameiro, Francis Coquelin, Rodrigo and Jose Luis Gaia are close to returning.
Daniel Wass left the disqualification.

Atletico interrupted a series of setbacks in the last round . The fiasco from Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final knocked out the Los Colchoneros for four matches. During this time, the team of Diego Simeone in the championship lost to Eibar (0: 2), Real Madrid (0: 1) and tied at home with Leganes (0: 0), and flew away from the Leonesa Culture in the Spanish Cup (1: 2).
Losses in La Liga led to the fact that “Atletico” gradually lost its position in the four, but only one victory over the “Granada” (1: 0) in the last round Los Colchoneros was enough to get out on the fourth line.
Atletico away play a little better than Valencia, but the guest form of the Madrid still looks pretty weak. In 11 away matches in La Liga, Atletico won and lost three times, and drew the remaining five matches. With the teams that now represent the first seven, the Los Colchoneros away earned only one point. Simeone team tied with Sevilla (1: 1). Atletico lost to Real Madrid (0: 1), and Real Sociedad (0: 2).
Atletico also have many injured. In the club’s infirmary are Kieran Trippier, Jo?o Felix, Herman Valera and Dario Poveda. Questioned the participation of Diego Costa, Hector Herrera and top scorer Alvaro Morata.
Despite the victory over Granada (1-0), Atl?tico is now in a slurred state. The team ceased to stably produce the result, again lost to Real Madrid, and there were many injured in the mattresses. “Valencia”, although lost to “Getafe”, but in “bats” in general, things are now going up. In addition, “Valencia” plays well at home, and “Atletico” with great difficulties in this championship manages to win away. Apparently, “Valencia” is able to interrupt the losing streak in face-to-face meetings with their opponents.
Our forecast is the victory of Valencia for 3.16 in 1xBet
