Following its disappointing Spanish Super Cup performance against rivals Real Madrid, Barcelona returns to league play, where it currently has an early five-point lead over Los Blancos.
To keep this lead, it will need an impressive performance against a talented Valencia squad that has always been a top competitor for Barcelona.
The key for Barcelona is its defense, and its centre-backs in particular. World-class defender Gerard Pique and natural defensive midfielder Javier Mascherano did not play well against a great Madrid attack in the second leg of the Super Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema dominated the Barcelona defense for Los Blancos, and the Pique-Mascherano tandem must play better against a Valenica attack that does have some quality.
One of their best forwards is Roberto Soldado, who scored twice in their previous league match against Deportivo La Coruna. He is certainly a goal threat that must be defended well.
For Barca manager Tito Vilanova, expect Pedro to play a vital role in the attack. His goal in the second leg against Madrid was fantastic. His first touch and shooting accuracy make him a safe option on the wing. Pedro and Lionel Messi are always a threat to score.
The most important part of Barcelona’s game plan will be to retain possession better than its opponent, which will be much easier to do against Valencia than Madrid. Xavi, Iniesta and Sergio Busquets will dominate the midfield and keep the ball long enough to create several good scoring opportunities.
After a Super Cup defeat, a motivated Barcelona should not have too many issues with Valencia, who have two draws thus far in the league.
Let’s look at all the information needed to watch this awesome La Liga match.
