Valencia has been in a big crisis for the last few seasons. Considering how they started this season, it seems to us that they will not be competitive in the battle for the top of the table this time either.
After a 1:0 win against Girona, they were defeated by Athletic Bilbao 1:0, and in that match, they did not send a single shot on target.
At a very awkward moment, a motivated Atletico arrives at their stadium, and the only way Valencia could get a positive result is to be very offensive.
Given his apparent defensive weaknesses, it can be a double-edged sword.
After a 3-0 win against Getafe away from home in the first round, the picture was created that Atletico could make a breakthrough this season.
However, a match with Villarreal followed, which Atletico lost at home by 2:0, and the pressure was already on, given that Atletico is 6 points away from the first-placed team in the table.
Away team has a very serious playing staff this season, and it is to be expected that Simeone will manage to motivate his players to show a reaction.
Although they are a defensive-minded side, Morata and Joao Felix are players with great goal-scoring abilities, and if they enter the match in the right rhythm, Atletico will be that much closer to getting all three points.

Injuries and suspensions
Atletico Madrid: Molina and Savic.
We are expecting a match in which both teams will be motivated to get all three points. So, we expect a game with “a lot of action”.
Valencia is in crisis, but it can be very dangerous in front of its fans, and if Savic is out of the lineup for this match, chances are high that the visitors’ defense will capitulate at least once.
We expect an offensive approach, especially from Valencia, and if they impose such a rhythm from the start, goals are a very likely option.
