Another final, same Valencia play with Young Boys

NOV 7, 2018

Valencia have been playing 'finals' since September. It is so because of himself. Of his trajectory and benefits. However today he has the first final really. What Marcelino's team does against Young Boys will have consequences. If he loses, he will practically say goodbye to the Champions; ephemeral would be his participation after so many years longing her. But in case of winning, Valencia would ensure, at least, a ticket to the Europa League as third and keep intact their chances of getting into the second round, including reaching the fifth day as a second if Juventus beats United.

Marcelino locked himself with his players and came to say: "Do you remember the match we played in Bern? Well, we have to do everything opposite to what we did to do well". Against Young Boys, Valencia played the worst minutes of the season. It was bad in attack and even worse in defense. For that reason Marcelino takes that reference party; of what theirs should not do, of course.

The Valencia that wants the Asturian is the one that played on Saturday against Girona. But with a goal. With Parejo still limping, Marcelino has in mind to repeat the same eleven against which goal Bono made the match of his life. Only the annoyances that Garay, Gayà and Guedes drag, which are slight although they are present, would alter the intentions of the technician.

Wass will continue as right back. The Danish, Marcellin's word, "is not a patch" but a candidate to continue in that position even when Piccini recovers. Kondogbia and Coquelin will repeat as dance partners in the double pivot ("they give us consistency, transition, play and a lot of physical power") while Rodrigo Moreno will be accompanied by the striker with the best understanding: Mina. They to stop the giant Hoarau and Co., a Young Boys who is happy just to hear the anthem of the Champions.
