Valencia will meet their eighth-year rival next Monday. The Champions League draw will be held in Nyon, Switzerland. The set of Celades, after finishing first in the group, will be measured one second, with the return in Mestalla. Valencia already know sits against Tottenham, Atalanta, Naples, Borussia or Olympique de Lyon. That’s the way the possible rivals of the Ché outfit are.
Led by Mourinho, the English outfit is trying to reverse its lousy start of course, which ended with the Pochettino era. The Portuguese coach has led to Tottenham, with four wins and two losses. He qualified second in the group for the eighth, behind Bayern. One more year, Kane and Son form a lethal duo. Between the two, they have scored 14 goals between the Premier League and the Champions League. Tottenham are growing, but has lost some of that energy that made him a finalist in the last edition. According to Mister Chip, the English set has the most options to measure Valencia (22.62%).
One of the great revelations of last year in Serie A and this season in the Champions League. The Italian outfit worked the miracle and snuck into eighths after losing the first three games of the group stage, something Newcastle had only achieved in the last 17 years. The Bergamo team plays their home games in San Siro because their stadium does not meet the requirements of UEFA. Colombian striker Luis Muriel is his top gunner, with ten targets between Serie A and the Champions League.
With Ancelotti dismissed and Gattuso just landed, the Italian outfit hopes to have regained normality by the time the eighth comes. Ancelotti was fired after making the pass and beating Genk in the last game. However, the last two months took its toll. Napoli have not found their place in Serie A, where they are seventh and are 17 points from Inter, leader, and eight points from the Champions League area. In Naples the morbid would be put by the three Spaniards in its ranks: Llorente, Callejón and Fabián Ruiz.
He suffered a lot to sneak into eighth in one of the most complicated groups. Borussia qualified thanks to the triumph against Slavia prague and Barca’s favour against Inter. Undoubtedly, the reunion with Paco Alcácer would be the great enthusor of the play-off against Valencia. Torrent left Mestalla through the back door, but he has a very special affection for the Ché outfit. Apart from Alcácer, Borussia’s pitchfork is very dangerous with Hazard, Reus and Sancho. Iduna Park, his stadium, also plays in favour of the team that the Swiss Favre is playing.
Olympique de Lyon
In theory, one of the most affordable rivals that could touch Valencia. In addition, the proximity to the capital of Turia could cause a large landing of followers ché. Olympique also suffered to sneak in eighth grade. He did so on the last day and after even a match that was put very uphill against Leipzig. The shock would be special for Diakhaby, formed in the quarry of the Gallic ensemble. Dutchman Memphis would be the main threat of an OL that can’t find his place in the domestic championship, where he is seventh.
