Valencia CFTOLast year he lost three games and tied one by signing his worst numbers
Valencia returns today to the training after the napoca break with a crystalline goal: that the month of January of the year will not be repeatedor. The start of 2018 was the worst moment of Marcelino's first stage in Valencia. After a devastating start, the Christmas parn came with a month in which the accumulation of matches due to the Copa pas invoice.Three defeats and a tie between the two competitions that had its continuity with a month of February with the same numbers, but with rivals of greater entity.
January saw the defeat against Las Palmas in the first game of the second round, the bulging with Madrid at home and the defeat, less painful for the classification on penalties, of the Cup against Alavs in Vitoria. The team felt El Hierro for the first time in the campaign, but rose after falling, already in February, before Barcelona in the Cup losing both games.It was the worst month of the year. Even this season in which Valencia does not win is difficult to find a month in which he has lost three games.
This year, those of Marcellin can not afford a January like the past. There are no options. The team has arrived without margin and needs to add and stay alive in the Cup to increase self-esteem and return to European positions as soon as possible.Alavs, Valladolid, Celta and Villarreal – apart from Sporting in Copa del Rey – are the rivals to start the year, without a doubt a definite opportunity, without large coconuts in sight, to give a lease to the leaderboard.
To try to start the year with a good foot and recover feelings, Marcellin can not count on his spine.With Guedes operated and Coquelin and Kondogbia injured, in addition to the sanctioned Gay and Soler, the Asturian will have to make bobbin lace to form two competitive teamsand not make mistakes in the Copa del Rey, a competition that is considered secondary (Lim already warns that returning to the Champions is a priority).
