Valencia’s season have finally come to life as they managed to win two games in a raw to put behind a 4 match losing run at the start of the season. At the same time, it has been pin pointed that both wins have come against the newly promoted teams – Alaves and Leganes. However these wins will serve as a much needed raise to their confidence and morale, especially after the sacking of former coach Pako Ayestaran. Valencia are still without a regular manager and Salvador Gonzalez aka Voro serving as a care-taker manager for the fourth time in two seasons. As regards injury news, Ezequiel Garay is still sidelined, while Mario Suarez should get the nod in a holding midfield role against his former club.
Menwhile, Atletico Madrid are coming on the back of a much deserved 1–0 win over Carlo Ancelotti’s side Bayern Munich in the Wednesday UEFA Champions League battle. The team that started the season with two consecutive stalemates in the domestic league against newly promoted sides have finally hitted top gear. They settled for a 1–1 draw with Barcelona a fortnight ago and are currently third in the overall league table. Atletico Madrid are 2 points behind city rivals and current league leaders Real Madrid and one point below the second placed Barcelona. As for the team news, Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez have both picked up injuries in recent matches so Lucas Hernandez may start at centre-back, while Kevin Gameiro is likely to return up front after Fernando Torres started against Bayern in midweek.
