Barcelona are determined to bounce back when they take on Valencia at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Ronald Koeman’s wards are coming off back-to-back losses at Benfica (3-0) in the Champions League and Atletico Madrid (2-0) in the La Liga.

They are currently ranked ninth in the table with 12 points but they have only played seven matches compared to eight for most teams.

Barcelona have a long injury list with Ronald Araujo, Pedri, Sergio Aguero, Ousmane Dembele, Moussa Wague and Martin Braithwaite among those sidelined while Alex Collado is suspended. 

Valencia also have 12 points but they are a game ahead of their opponents. Jose Bordalas’ troops posted draws against Athletic Bilbao (1-1) and Cadiz (0-0) in their last two games.

Maxi Gomez is available for Valencia after serving a ban. Cristiano Piccini is still injured while Omar Alderete is suspended. 

Barcelona defeated Valencia 3-2 in their most recent encounter back in May but the two clubs battled to a 2-2 draw in their last encounter at Camp Nou. 

Verdict

Barcelona are unbeaten in their last four games at Camp Nou so we are backing them to beat Valencia.
