Valencia CFTOThe Valencia needs to end mediocrity while Villarreal urgently need to get out of the pit
LThe derbies are always considered a football party. But today's Mestalla has little party and much anguish. Valencia and Villarreal face each other in a very delicate moment.Those of Marcelino need to add at home, where this year they have only beaten Rayo Vallecano and Huesca to get out of the crisis of results.For its part, Villarreal is at the limit. The change in the bench has not generated a revolution in the results.Luis Garca an has not managed to make the submarine straighten the courseand winning in Mestalla could mean a change of trend.
The relegation places are very hard for a team with players of the quality ofFornals, Cazorla, Bacca or Gerard Moreno. The yellow set disembarks in Mestallaafter seven days without winning, forced to reverse the trend to recover the good game and, above all, the results.The equipment of Luis Garca has the absences by injury of Bruno Soriano and Manu Morlanes, to which this week adds the injury of Dani Raba and the sanction of Ramiro Funes Mori.
On the other hand,the Valencia arrives with the impulse of the victory with comeback in Vigo, but another blow in Cup against Getafe.The absence of Paulista by sanction, coupled with the moment of doubtgoing through Diakhaby can complicate the lag, to date the only line that has worked regularly this season.
The fact is that for Villarreal, in the last three seasons, the visit toMestalla has become a point nursery. Three consecutive games and three victories at home of the rival. The last campaign Villarreal took the points before Christmas (0-1). In previous Cerr the League in Mestalla (1-3) and the previous one again to win in Mestalla (0-2) also in the last days of League.Six goals in favor and one against in his last three visits in the derby.certainly more than positive numbers.
The case is that they face two teams whoseobjectives at the beginning of the season are far from their current position in the table.Marcelino himself acknowledges yesterday that the situation of anxiety that lives Villarrealin the last days he sounded a lot, referring to the moments of despairthat Valencia has lived this season in which everything has started in reverse.
