Who will become better in the future? Both are born '88, and play quite regularly for their teams.

Diego Capel is better at the moment but Mata is really showing some progress in the last period of time.

Both have great futures lying ahead of them :thmbup:

Not even the same type of player...
Capel is a winger while Mata is more of a second striker that can play winger.

Well then, Capel now but he's sometimes very egoistic and easy to read while Mata is much more of a teamplayer but maybe can be a little bit soft.
Capel is more raw and direct while Mata is more elegant and smooth.

I'm happy with Mata, he has a great left foot and is a very good finisher.

At the moment, Capel is probably abit better, although Mata is close.

Mata has got more than just pace and dribbling in his game, his eye for goal can make him into a very good player in the future.

At the moment capel looks much better but he is a winger and mata is more like a 2nd forward.IMO mata's play is more intellegent but in Capel there is more potential

Bah... potential is Mata!

His assist here is just without words...

This guy is best central or with a free role as one of the 3 forwards in a 4-3-3.
Capel on the other hand is much better for a 4-4-2 or with extreme wingers while Mata isn't that special as a winger.

Defenitely think Mata is better. Capel is explosive, but quite simple in his ways.

..but it's also a bit of Jiménez work, he hasn't been playing Capel a lot this season.

Well, he has been injured for the most part of this season. Adriano has been playing instead, but he will be starting regularly soon, again.

Regarding the question, Mata poos on Capel.

Still... Mata offers alot more than Capel.

Capel is a leftfooted Joaquín for me, he can dribble past players with ease when he wants to dribble more than actually play. Mata is alot more smarter in when to dribble and when to pass. He make ALOT of runs that open up space for teammates etc.

Mata is looking great this season, meanwhile Capel, sadly, haven't played much. Have to say, Mata looks the more interesting prospect. But I truly hope Capel gets some playing time, he really is too good to sit on the bench.

Mata,anyday.

This chap has personality,he rejects Real Madrid,goes to Valencia and makes a place for himself and scores goals as well.Silva's return might slow his progress but Valencia know they have a dude with great attitude on their hands.

Why would Silva's return slow his progress?
Silva won't be playing as LWF anytime soon.

In fact it should help Mata score even more and he'll be able to make his off the ball runs more often now.

Yeah, Mata was actually in better form at the beginning of the season ... lately he has been in poop form, but before that (before Silva got injured) he was tearing it up...
