Valencia vs Atletico Madrid LIVE in LaLiga: The Los Murciélagos welcome Diego Simeone’s team for what should be a cracker of a Round 13 fixture of the 2021/22 LaLiga season.
The match is scheduled to take place at Valencia’s home ground, Estadio Mestalla. The match is set to take place on the 7th of November (Sunday), 2021 at 8:45 pm IST.
The match will be available for the viewers LIVE on MTV India. The match will also be broadcast on Jio TV LIVE.
Valencia: Los Murciélagos are currently at the tenth spot in the LaLiga points table. The club has just four wins in their twelve LaLiga games this season. The only positive thing for Valencia would be that they broke their seven-match winless streak with a win against Villareal last weekend.
Atlético Madrid: Los Rojiblancos are currently on the fourth spot in the LaLiga table. They have just one win in their last five games, including the two losses to Liverpool in the Champions League. Atletico will be desperate to change their fortunes when they take on Valencia on Sunday.
Valencia: Pepe Bordalas’ boys have been crippled by injuries. They would be without Lato, Paulista, Cheryshev, Gomez, and Racic in the game against Atletico. The rest of the team is fit and would be in contention to play the match.
Atletico Madrid: Kondogbia, Llorente, and Lemar would not be featuring for the Los Rojiblancos. The rest of the squad looks fit to feature in the game against Valencia.
Valencia XI: Cillessen, Foulquier, Correia, Alderete, Gaya, Guillamon, Costa, Soler, Wass, de Sousa, Guedes
Atlético Madrid XI: Oblak, Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso, Trippier, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco, Correa, Suarez, Griezmann
In their last 26 encounters since September 2010, Valencia have won 4 times and Atletico Madrid have had 13 victories. Their encounter has ended in a draw a whopping nine times.
Goncalo Guedes (Valencia): The Portuguese forward has been Valencia’s go-to man this season. Guedes has not had the best of starts, but he has 3 goals and 2 assists in LaLiga this season. Guedes would have to fire as his club desperately needs this win.
Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid): Suarez has been Atletico Madrid’s “Hitman” this season. The striker has blanked in four of his last five matches, which makes him even more dangerous. He would be looking to add to his six LaLiga goals as he takes to the field against Valencia.
Defenders: Savic, Trippier, Gaya, Gimenez
Midfielders: Carrasco, Soler, Guillamon
Forwards: Suarez(C), Guedes, Correa(VC)
Valencia 1-1 Atlético Madrid
Atletico Madrid does look like the favorites on paper. But given the history of this fixture and the fact that both teams are lacking form, the game could probably be another draw between the sides.
