Atletico – Valencia: Schedule And Where to Watch Today on TV
Atletico del Cholo Simeone wants to continue with its high pace of play and points that keep it in the leadership of LaLiga Santander, against a Valencia that wants to add three by three to get away from relegation positions.
Atletico de Madrid and Valencia meet on the twentieth day of LaLiga Santander, in the first match of the second round of the competition. The colchoneros have a very high pace of play and points, which makes them leaders of the competition at the end of the first round, with two games less.
The colchoneros come from achieving a long-suffering victory in Ipurúa against Eibar, thanks to a “double” by Luis Su,arez that allowed goalkeeper Marko Dimitrovic to overcome the goal, who advanced the gunsmiths by taking the penalty. This victory was especially important, due to the three casualties the team had.
The absence of captain Koke is irreplaceable for Atlético in the exit of the ball, so his presence today against Valencia is very relevant. However, who will not be able to be in the meeting is Kieran Trippier, who will be suspended until February 28 due to a betting issue. The one who seems to be available is Mario Hermoso, who was out against Eibar, since the left-handed center-back sprained himself in his match against Sevilla, but has recovered in time to be available against the Che team.
Atlético de Madrid is the leader with 44 points out of 51 possible, so they want to maintain the advantage over Real Madrid, Barcelona and Seville. The colchoneros have only played 17 games, so they have two games to recover to complete the first round of the competition.
Javi Gracia’s Valencia comes from drawing 1-1 at the Mestalla against Osasuna, in a match that left doubts about the game. The che team is in a delicate situation in the classification, since it is fourteenth with 20 points, tied with Real Valladolid and in the shortlist with Eibar, Alavés, Athletic de Bilbao or Elche.
The Valencian team has a very busy schedule, since in addition to this Metropolitan match they will have a tough match ahead against Sevilla in the second round of the Copa del Rey. Daniel Wass, who saw the fifth yellow against Osasuna and will complete a cycle of cautions, will be out for today’s game.
The match can be seen by Movistar LaLiga (46) and Movistar LaLiga 1 (47), dials of the Movistar Plus platform. You can follow all the information about the match live on the Mundo Deportivo website.
