Little by little, the problems of Ruben Baraja started to emerge, mainly due to the inexperience of his roster. The club is facing financial problems, which have lowered the quality of the team, because key players Lino (38/6), Musah (33/0), Kluivert (26/6), Nico (26/1), Cavani (25/5), Lato (24/1), and Moriba (24/0) left the team. They lost to Alaves 1-0 away from home, marking their second defeat in a row and today two key defenders Foulquier (4/0) and Paulista (3/0) are out of the squad. Atlético Madrid didn’t play the previous matchday, as the home match against Sevilla was called off due to bad weather conditions. Thus, their most recent game was the supposed derby against Rayo Vallecano on August 28, winning by an impressive 0-7. Thus, they remain unbeaten after three matches (2-1-0), and have a phenomenal record in their mutual matches, undefeated in the last 17 games (11-6-0). They have some absences like Depay (3/2), De Paul (3/0), Soyuncu (2/0) and Koke (1/0). Valencia is facing a superior opponent, and I don’t believe that will win the three points.
