Atletico Madrid will host Valencia in 9th round of Spanish Primera. Atletico Madrid coming to this match after victory in third round of Champions league against Astana at home and in previous round of Primera they achieved victory over Real Sociedad on the road, in both matches they kept a clean sheet. Atletico Madrid are at fourth position at the table with 16 points from previous 8 rounds. They showed solid performances and playing some very strong defensive football, in eight matches they conceded only four goals while scored 12. Previous season Atletico ended at third position in league and they won direct placement into Champions league group stage, where they are at first position in group C with two victories and one defeat against Benfica in second round at home 1:2. Atletico for sure have quality to achieve positive outcome in this match and they will for sure go for a victory here in front of their fans. Only forward Luciano Vietto will miss this match due to injury.
Valencia on the other side are currently at eighth position at the table with 12 points. They didn't had the best start of the new season but they improved their form and now are coming to this match after victory in third round of Champions league over Gent at home 2:1 and in previous round of Primera they achieved routine victory over Malaga 3:0. Previous season they ended at fourth position at the table and they won their placement into Champions league by eliminating Monaco in final round of qualifications, and now after three rounds they are at second position in group H with six points. Valencia Achieved three victories, three draws and suffered two defeats in Primera against Athletic Bilbao and Espanyol. After slow start Valencia improved their form and for sure will give their best in this match on the road to achieve positive result, but they are facing with one of the strongest teams in Spain and it will be very hard here to stay undefeated. In last five matches against Atletico Madrid Valencia achieved one victory, two draws and suffered two defeats. Goalkeepers Diego Alves and Mat Ryan are out of action for this match due to injuries while defender Aymen Abdennour is having problems with slight injury and his appearance is questionable.
Atletico Madrid showed decent performances in this season and they are favorites in this match, while Valencia after some slow start now seems much better but it will be very hard to take some points against very confident Atletico, I expect home victory here.
