Are you ready for the Derbi Valenciano? Peter Lim is. The Singaporean VCF owner will attend Mestalla, according to club president Lay Hoon.
Captain Parejo will make his comeback, and Diego Alves overcame some injury doubts:
Alves, Yoel, Cancelo, Barragán, Mustafi, Vezo, Ruiz, Orban, Tropi, Fuego, Parejo, Filipe, Gomes, Feghouli, De Paul, Rodrigo, Paco, Negredo.
Gayà & Enzo are however expected back for the game in Camp Nou, while the hamstring injured Piatti is doubtful. Otamendi will sit out for the injustice by referee Teixeira Vítienes in Athletic Bilbao.
Nuno is expected to change the formation to a 4-4-2 with narrow wings for more ball possession:
Alves; Barragan, Mustafi, Vezo, Orban; Fuego, Parejo, Gomes, De Paul, Paco, Negredo.
Levante will be without Pape Diop (injury) & captain Juanfran (sanction), but VCF will surely focus more on the watermelon David Barral who scored a true hattrick in Almería a week ago.
Head-to-head: 81 wins, 24 draws & 30 defeats.
H2H in Mestalla: 52 wins, 16 draws & 8 defeats, with 218 goals for & 87 against.
Don’t miss the game activity on our hashtag #CheNord or #VCFlevante, because Mestalla are planning a “white glove” protest against the injustice on VCF by ruling bodies such as RFEF & LFP. Amunt!
After the news that the disciplinary federation RFEF want to denounce Nuno & Salvo for post-game comments in Bilbao, LFP now want to sanction Valencian media SuperDeporte for a headline calling referee Teixeira a liar. #EstamosConSuper.
Emran Badran, the Arab who founded a VCF club in Israel, is finally fulfilling his life-long dream to be in Valencia. He already met the VCF management and several players before going to tonight’s derby and the away game in Barcelona. Dreams come true.
Valencia-B team Mestalla drawed 0-0 home against Lleida in a game where the visitors were more dangerous. Curro started with the following XI:
Jaume, Vidal, Leuko, Tendillo, Ayala, Zahibo, Nando, Cano, Dani, Álex, Gil.
– With only 5 games left, VCF Mestalla are still 12th placed with 9 points down to relegation.
Rumors are now surrounding Villarreal sensation Luciano Vietto, who VCF inquired after the regional derby a week ago. The Argentine, who is the 2nd most scoring after coming on from the bench, is said to be seduced by the VCF project. Head scout Ayala has likes the player ever since his time at La Academia in Racing.
