Atletico Madrid vs Valencia Match Preview
Valencia are chasing Champions League qualification on two fronts and could give their prospects another boost when they visit Atletico Madrid.
Los Che have been in excellent form since mid-January and climbed La Liga table to sixth position with five rounds of matches to go, just two points away from the all-important fourth place held by surprise package Getafe.
Marcelino Garcia Toral’s side are also through to the semi-finals of the Europa League, in which they will face Arsenal, and would also go directly into the Champions League group stage if they won that competition.
Although Valencia do not have a good head-to-head record against Atletico Madrid, and Diego Simeone’s side have made their new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium as much of a fortress as the old Vicente Calderon, this does not look to be a banker home victory.
Admittedly Atletico have won their latest five home games to nil, but they have also had three decisive away defeats without scoring in the past six weeks whereas Valencia have lost only one of their last 22 games in all competitions.
After four wins in a row, Valencia could hardly be more confident and one point or three from this difficult fixture would keep their top-four quest very much alive.
