It is expected that on Saturday (19/12) at the “Camp Nou” stadium, “Barcelona” will meet “Valencia” in the 2020-2021 La Liga. The match will be special for Blaugrana coach Ronald Koeman.
Ronald Koeman He coached Valencia from November 2007 to April 2008. Although not just a year of training, there are many memories that are engraved.
For sweet memories, Koeman led Valencia to win the Copa del Rey. Meanwhile, for the bitter story, Koeman’s separation from Valencia was colored by a riot.
“As many people know, Valencia is not the best memory I have as a coach. It could be that I made the wrong decision,” said Koeman as reported by Marca.
“It was only a brief visit. However, at least I can win something,” he said.
In the match, Koeman needs to get rid of the existing romance. Barcelona takes three points to make it to the top four.
Currently, Barcelona is only ranked fifth in the standings with a collection of 20 points from 12 matches. Lionel Messi and his friends are six points adrift of Atletico Madrid who are at the top after playing in 11 matches.
As usual, Barcelona will still rely on Lionel Messi to gain goals. Antoine Griezmann’s sharpness is also expected not to be blunt.
To overcome Gerard Pique’s absence, Barca are predicted to put Ronald Araujo to accompany Clement Lenglet in the heart of defense.
With statistics only one defeat in the last eight matches against Valencia, Barcelona has a greater chance of winning. Moreover, in the last four duels at home, Barca have never lost against Valencia.
Estimated lineup of players:
Barcelona (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Alba, Lenglet, Araujo, Dest; de Jong, Busquets, Pedri; Braithwaite, Messi, Griezmann.
Coach: Ronald Koeman.
Valencia (4-4-2): Domenech; Gaya, Diakhaby, Paulista, Wass; Guedes, Soler, Racic, Musah; Gomez, Vallejo.
Coach: Javi Gracia.
