On the paper, the most difficult match from here to the end. Barça just needs 6 points to achieve the title. We could even win La Liga in this match, if Real Madrid loses at home against Racing and we win in Mestalla... but it sounds difficult. Anyway, first match ball.

A victory in Mestalla would be almost definitive, because we would finish with the last hopes of the madridismo. In any case, it won't be easy. Valencia is not having its best season, but they still have a lot of quality in the team and they just recovered their best player last season: Vicente.

Currently Valencia is 5th, 2 points far from the CL places, so their motivation will be high. Besides, historically, Barça is Valencia's main rival. Mestalla is never an easy place, we've lost very often in this stadium in the last years, although we won last year with a goal by Gerard.

They're not as reliable in defense as they were in the last 4 or 5 years. Besides, they have a lot of problems to score a goal. In any case, the base of this team is the one that gave them 2 Liga titles in the last 3 years, so don't dismiss their quality, despite their bad moment.

We will recover Xavi, so I guess that we'll play with the usual midfield, with Marquez, Xavi and Deco. Unless we have any injury during the week, the team will be the usual XI.

If we don't want to suffer much, we better win here. Sunday at 19:00 (local time).

GUANYEU PER NOSALTRES. FORÇA BARÇA! :scream:

It would be fantastic if we would win. But I will not blame the players if we lose, because I remember their foul play last time..

What about Marquez with Puyol in the back and Motta at the DM spot?

I wouldnt mind drawing against Valencia, we need to make sure that we go out there with the right mentality, we need to attack and get all of our chances in front of goal. We can not afford to lose la liga at this point.

We lose, we give real alot of hope. They are playing on Saturday and we are playing on Sunday which will also give us some motivation towards the upcoming match!

Valencia must win this game if they want to keep their CL qualifacation hopes alive so we have to be at our best best. :fero:
i expect a very open game because both teams will attack and will look for the 3pts.

If both teams attack as you said, there will be strong chances for a Barça win.

But I think that Valencia will gonna play a-la Chelsea or Madrid. Waiting in defense to launch counter-attacks. In that scenario, I'm not so confident.

Valencia is having their season at the end, they are near CL next season, and they want it too bad, still 4 games hope going for them, and they don't want to lose.

with Vicente come back, they'll have much better chances in attack.
we must enter the game with good mentality, and think about it as a chance to snatch LA LIGA, and not take any risck.
they'll play open game, so we'll be in our best style to attack back, we still have the chances as usual, this time we must take them.

they have bad attacking times now, still Di Vaio and Vicente plus Mista could make too much problems to us.

we could put in Motta and take Marquez back to the CB, as some said.
with Xavi is back, so we could control midfield more than having Iniesta in it.

we need the 3 Points, and they need it, so its who gonna take it.

we must go to them and win at their ground, and its not going to be easy task.

must win to be LA LIGA Champions

SOM-HI BARCA :strong:

VISCA EL BARCA :strong: :heart: :fero:
