Valencia VS Barcelona match analysis

Valencia will host Barcelona in round 8 of the La Liga. Neither team is doing great lately but the table makes the difference. While the slump of Barcelona is temporary Valencia is having issues from the start. It is quite unbelievable they scored just 5 goals in 7 matches with the likes of Rodrigo, Batshuayi and Gameiro up front. They have the worst attack of the league and way to many draws. We can say the focus on defense is hurting Valencia the most but they also conceded just 6 goals. Valencia played strong teams at home like Atletico 1:1, Betis 0:0, Celta 1:1 but in CL lost against Juventus 0:2. Sure if they can frustrate Barcelona they can take a draw but I don`t find it true. Valencia is just 16`th with 8 points. Barcelona is leading the league with 14 points and 4-2-1 so far. It all looked peachy just a few rounds back but some really sloppy defending created insecurity in the team. Barca still scores goals which is the most important but the lack of Umtiti seems to hurt them the most. So Barca was under pressure away at Tottenham but Messi showed his best once more and lead Barca to a 4:2 win. An inspired performance from all of the team was just what they needed. Even if they had a day less rest the Barca players will want to make use of this great results and search for a win on this tough ground. Barcelona has 2-0-1 away from home but that 1:2 against Leganes was a definite shocker. Bercelona does well against Valencia and won 5 of the last 6. Valencia will be missing Santi Mina while Barcelona is without Umtiti and Sergio Roberto. With a little confidence back and Messi on high level it should be enough for an away win.
