Valencia vs Espanyol Preview

Valencia vs Espanyol

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Mestalla

Date: 8th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Valencia’s early season form and the sustained run of good results has helped to place them in a position to play Champions League football next season as they have a 15 points cushion on the team in 5th position.

Los Che would head into this game just one point behind Real Madrid and they would be confident of another win here as they have done in 7 of their last 8 matches.

Valencia’s midfield has been able to open up tight defences this season and Espanyol’s defensive game plan could be undone at the Mestalla in this game also.

Espanyol remain one of the strangest and unpredictable teams in the Spanish La Liga.

They could be a tough side to beat one day and then go on a long winless run in another time period.

They have just 3 wins from their last 14 competitive games, but, interestingly 2 of those wins were against Barcelona and Real Madrid.

They have the 3rd worst away record in the division this season, and they have won only one of their away games all season.

While their last six meetings have seen both teams score, Valencia have won their last 4 meetings at home against Espanyol.
