Valencia vs Las Palmas Preview

 

Valencia vs Las Palmas

Competition – Copa del Rey

Stadium – Estadio Mestalla

Date: 9th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:30 GMT

Thanks to Rodrigo, Valencia are still alive in this competition and they enter this game as favourites.

They were on their way to losing the first leg before Rodrigo came off the bench to net a late leveler.

This game offers them a chance to stake a claim for a trophy this season and they will look to get the job done here.

They are enjoying a season helped by a lack of European commitment and after resting most of their star men in the first leg, they will look to finish off the work here with a stronger lineup.

Diego Calleri’s goal in the first leg almost gave Las Palmas an unlikely victory in the first leg however, their poor defensive record came back to harm them in the end.

They have conceded an average of 2.22 goals in the league this season which is the most by any Spanish top flight side and their latest setback came when they lost 2-1 to Eibar despite racing to an early lead.

That game was Paco Jimenez’s first game in charge and he is the fourth man to lead them this season.
