The coach of the Valencia, Javi Gracia, prepared in the last days for the duel against the Barcelona in the Camp Nou, but the absences and doubts can be a problem
Valencia, that recently won with traced back included to the Terrassa 2-4, will arrive this Saturday like visitor for a duel against the Catalan team in the middle of a good number of drops of his main figures, and in front of a Barcelona group that needs to obtain more victories to go up in the table of LaLiga Santander, since just now find in the fifth place.
They explain in Sportive World that, after remaining out of the announcement for the duel in front of the Terrassa by some annoyances in the knee, Maxi Gómez, the central forward headline of the team led by Javi Gracia, did not exercise the Thursday with the group. It jumped to the terrain of game of the sportive city of Paterna but did it with zapatillas and no with boots. Even it worked in solitary. Yes it trained with the rest of his mates this Friday, although it keeps on being a mystery if it will be or no in optimum conditions to play in front of the Barça.
Neither it was with the team the "number nine acting", Kevin Gameiro, the one who to date still continues with the recovery of his muscular injury, by what from a principle leaves it descartado for the imminent meeting in the Camp Nou. If they do not recover any of the two, the trainer of Valencia will have to see in the need to invent a new leading. It seems little likely that have Rubén Nephew, since it has not done it up to now and the level of game that deployed during the meeting with the Terrassa was low.
The main option of Gracia could go back to be Manu Vallejo, this together with of Kang In Lee, the one who recently seems to have recovered of an injury, would allow at least to the technician navarro can choose between him or Gonçalo Guedes to act of stick. In addition to these absences and of the expected of Jasper Cillessen by his injury and of Toni Lato, for having positive die by Covid19, neither exercised with the group the central Hugo Guillamón, with which Gracia if it looked forward to to explain for the next date, of the same way that will be able to do it with José Luis Gayà.
The technician barcelonista, Ronald Koeman, still keeps the drops of Gerard Hammered, Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati, which still do not have a clear-cut date so that finally they return to the field, aunado to this, the situation of Ousmane Dembélé is not different.
