1st Goal Barcelona

Barcelona vs Valencia 17.10.2021

Barcelona have been descending on a slippery slope in the last few weeks, with the hangover of Messi’s exit in the summer hitting them real hard. They lost back to back games to Benfica in the Champions League and Atletico Madrid in La Liga just before the international break which came as a bit of a relief.

Valencia flattered to deceive to start the season but a loss to Real Madrid seems to have restored them to default settings. They are winless in their last four games (2D, 2L), a run that has seen them slide down the log to 8th place.

This is going to be a tough game pitting two teams that are looking to arrest a poor run of form. Barca have played better at home and we are backing them to break the ice with the 1st goal.
