Valencia vs Barcelona

La Liga’s top two meet at the Estadio Mestalla on Sunday when second-placed Valencia host leaders Barcelona. Los Che trail the Blaugrana by four points but have been revived on the watch of manager Marcelino, who will be banned from the touchline for this game.

The bad news for Valencia is Lionel Messi is likely to return to the starting lineup after Barca left their best player on the bench for 56 minutes during the 0-0 draw against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

His choices are Gerard Deulofeu and former Valencia ace Paco Alcacer. The latter is a natural striker, while Deulofeu is more of a winger.

Valverde’s other choice will be to insert Paulinho into midfield alongside Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic. The manager hasn’t been afraid to play with two strikers through the middle this season.

Issues at the back may command more of Valverde’s attention after Gerard Pique lost his appeal against suspension, per Sam Marsden of ESPN FC.

Marsden noted what Pique’s absence will mean for the middle of Barcelona’s defence: “With Javier Mascherano also missing for the game at Mestalla, Valverde is left with just Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen as his only available central defenders.”

Zaza has scored an impressive nine goals in Spain’s top flight this season. However, Zaza picked up a knee problem while on international duty with Italy recently, per CalcioMercato.com, and was rested for the win over Espanyol last time out.

If Zaza is fully fit, he and strike partner Rodrigo will surely cause a depleted Barca defence problems. Yet the Valencia back line will also be understrength with centre-backs Jeison Murillo Javier Jimenez set to miss out, per Goal’s Ben Hayward.

Murillo in particular will be missed, but the bigger loss for Valencia may be not having Marcelino in the dugout. The 52-year-old will begin a two-match touchline ban after complaining to the officials too much during the 2-0 win over Espanyol.
