After performing well in the last season’s campaign, Valencia look very doubtful this season, it can be seen from the results at the beginning of the season and their position in the La Liga standings. Currently, Los Che sit in 14th place in the standings, and the result is clearly very disappointing. But, there is still plenty of time for them to fix it, because the season is still very long. At the 10th Jornada this weekend, Valencia will face Athletic Bilbao. The match will take place on Saturday night, October 27, 2018 at Estadio San Mames Barria, Bilbao.
Like Valencia, the hosts Athletic Bilbao also recorded a disappointing performance at the beginning of this season, where they were only able to pack 9 points from nine matches that have taken place and are currently 17th in the standings. In their last five matches, the Basque Club has never even won with 3 draws and 2 defeats.
Valencia is little bit better, because at least in their last five games, they managed to package one victory. Unfortunately, four other matches led to a draw, including when dealing with BSC Young Boys in the middle of this week’s European Champions League. What is clear, Marcelino Garcia Toral’s direction squad must win in the match against Bilbao later in order to improve their position in the standings. But, of course it is not an easy matter, considering the match will take place at the opponent’s headquarters.
