The Mestalla Showdown Analysis

Key Stats
– Atletico Madrid have an unbeaten streak of 17 league games against Valencia.
– Valencia have faltered in their last two encounters, suffering defeats against Osasuna and Alaves.
– Alvaro Morata, Atletico’s in-form striker, has bagged three goals this season.

Mestalla Stadium is all set for what promises to be an intriguing fixture as Valencia lock horns with Atletico Madrid on Saturday. A fixture that boasts of historical significance, the La Liga enthusiasts await an enthralling contest.

Valencia’s Current Struggles

After an unsettling 2022-23 season which saw them finish a concerning 16th, their lowest since 1987, Valencia have kicked off this season with mixed fortunes. Ruben Baraja’s side enjoyed a promising start with victories over Sevilla and Las Palmas but soon lost momentum, suffering defeats to Osasuna and Alaves.

Valencia’s inconsistency in form is glaring. Their past La Liga performances oscillate between 9th, 13th, and 16th finishes, signalling a potential inability to challenge for European spots, mostly because of their squad depth. Recent history doesn’t favour them either; Valencia haven’t managed a win against Atletico since October 2014, having lost five of their last six encounters.

Atletico Madrid’s Refreshed Start

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, have made an impressive start, having amassed seven points from their first three matches. Their 7-0 demolition of Rayo Vallecano last month was a statement of intent. Yet, the team has been out of action since the end of August due to their game against Sevilla being called off owing to heavy rain.

In addition to their league ambitions, Atletico have their eyes on European redemption after last season’s Champions League disappointment. As they gear up for their fixture against Lazio, Atletico will be keen to continue their momentum in the domestic league, especially with a Madrid derby looming on the horizon.

Team News and Possible Line-ups

Valencia will miss key players like Gabriel Paulista, Alberto Mari, and Samu Castillejo due to injuries. However, summer signing Sergi Canos is expected to make a mark from the outset, potentially aiding Andre Almeida and Hugo Duro upfront.

Atletico, despite dealing with a slew of injuries including notable absentees like Vitolo, Memphis Depay, and Koke, have depth in their ranks. With Yannick Carrasco’s recent departure and Lino’s absence, Saul Niguez might find a role as a left-wing back. In-form striker Alvaro Morata, fresh from a brace against Rayo, will likely lead the attack with Antoine Griezmann.

Form Guide and Key Players

The BettingTips4You Expert Rating showcases Jose Luis Gaya and Nahuel Molina as standout performers for Valencia and Atletico respectively. With Gaya’s defensive rating of 7.33 and Molina’s impressive 7.80, their duel on the flank will be captivating.

While Valencia have had a balanced goal distribution, Atletico’s attack sees Alvaro Morata leading with three goals this term. Antoine Griezmann and Marcos Llorente, with a goal each, further underline Atletico’s attacking prowess.


  1. Match Outcome: Drawing from the form and recent history, an Atletico win seems the most plausible. They’ve displayed dominance, and with Valencia’s recent struggle against top teams, an Atletico victory with both teams scoring is predicted.
  2. Correct Score Prediction: Taking both teams’ attacking and defensive records into account, a 2-1 victory in favour of Atletico Madrid is anticipated.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: Alvaro Morata, with his current form, seems poised to find the net at least once in this fixture.
