Valencia and Atletico Madrid go head to head at Estadio de Mestalla in a highly-anticipated La Liga game on Monday. Los Che kicked off the new Primera Division campaign with a 1-0 win over Girona, with the team losing to Athletic Club last week. Valencia had no shots on target in the Estadio San Mames defeat, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s showdown. Los Rojiblancos aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Villarreal, and seeing that they are undefeated in the previous seven meetings with Valencia at Mestalla, they come in as the favorites.
After a wildly mixed start to the season, will Atlético Madrid be able to find the consistency needed if they’re to be serious title contenders? First, los Colchoneros looked excellent as they hammered Getafe 3-0 on the opening weekend; Álvaro Morata with a brace. But then, last Sunday, Diego Simeone’s side offered very little and were beaten 2-0 by Villarreal at the Cívitas Metropolitano. Now, Atleti face back-to-back away games, this one followed by a trip to Real Sociedad, with their title credentials set to be tested. Atlético Madrid has not lost to Valencia away from home in 7 games and are also unbeaten in their last 3 away games.
Valencia’s start to the campaign has followed a similar pattern. Los Che, just about, beat newly-promoted Girona on the opening weekend, thanks to Carlos Soler’s penalty. But then, last Sunday, Gennaro Gattuso’s team didn’t muster a single shot on target, beaten 1-0 by Athletic Club at San Mamés. Safe to say, Valencia supporters are not pleased with the ownership of the club, but will be really behind their team for this huge Monday night game. Valencia has not beaten Atlético Madrid in a long time, though they are also unbeaten in their last 2 home games.
