La Liga predictions for Valencia – Eibar
The new year has arrived and it’s time for the Spanish La Liga to start again. The first La Liga game for 2020 is going to be played at the Mestalla where Valencia hosts Eibar. Let’s take a look in our La Liga predictions today.
For Valencia the rest of the season is going to be a subject of great importance. At this moment Albert Celades’ team is 8th in the league with 28 points, but in same time they are just four points behind the 4th Atletico Madrid and the Champions League zone. This means that Valencia could have a very real chance to qualify for the Champions League for a second consecutive season, but only if they make a strong run until the end of the campaign.
When Albert Celades was appointed at the job after the departure of Marcelino, it was not an easy start for the young manager. But with time he managed to know the team better and Los Che improved their results. They also qualified for the eliminations of the Champions League, which was a great achievement.
In their last La Liga game Valencia won a point during their visit to Real Valladolid. The hosts scored first and they really close to win this, but Valencia had the luck to equalise in the 94th minute. It was the substitute Manu Vallejo who saved the point for Valencia.
In the same time Eibar are dangerously close to the relegation zone of La Liga. They are 16th in the table with 19 points and they must be careful in the months about to come, because the fight for survival is going to be a big competition. Every point will be important.
In our La Liga predictions we think that Valencia will start 2020 with a win. They are improving in the last few months and a home game against Eibar is a good chance to get closer to the Top 4.
