Barcelona

Ronald Koeman’s charges have continued to amaze their fans. This season, the game of the Pomegranate-Blues is far from brilliant. Just look at the results of the last two test matches with Barça. First, there was a 0-3 defeat in Lisbon in the Champions League match with Benfica. Then, they lost 0-2 in a face-to-face duel with Atletico Madrid. With such results, the pomegranate-blue team has 12 points and so far occupies 9th place in the standings after 7 games played.

Valencia

The team of Jose Bardalas has no fewer problems this season. The Bats have not won four rounds already. After two defeats in a row, the team drew in the last two rounds. First, there was a 1-1 draw in the match of Atletico from Bilbao, followed by a 0-0 draw in the game with Cadiz. As a consequence of such disappointing results, the team occupies 8th position in the standings with 12 points gained.

Head-to-head statistics 

Until now, Barcelona and Valencia teams have met 222 times on an official level. In 107 matches, the victory was for the pomegranate-blue team, while in 59 meetings, the bats were stronger. Draws were recorded in the other 56 matches.
