Valencia CF vs Getafe CF Match Preview

If you are reading this article that means the world hasn't ended yet and Valencia CF is facing Getafe CF tonight in what may possibly be Valencia's last match so they better win it. Jokes aside Valencia CF is facing Getafe CF in what would be the final match this year, with the next match being in the new 2013 year on January 5th.

The world being fine and still standing Valencia CF must win this match if they hope to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season and for that Valencia needs to catch up to Malaga and beat them for the 4th spot which seems so incredibly tough right now.

After a series of 3 wins in 3 different competitions new Valencia CF coach also had his first loss last week at the feet of Rayo Vallecano. He will be hoping that his second match at the Mestalla will be more fruitful and positive that will result in a win for Valencia CF over Getafe. The players also must start proving themselves and up their performance, as I'm afraid its not Llorente playing on the field and him leaving won't change the situation no matter how much Spanish fans dream it would. I'm here to tell you that it won't and if it will it probably will be for the worst.

Valencia CF needs stability and I'm afraid I'm not seeing any serious people out there that can take the horn from Llorente and steadily steer this fragile ship. Unicorns and fairies are also not real, so no one can just magically fix the situation or bring the best players and anyone who says that is lying and manipulating you, so you need to stop being naive and start being real.

For the match against Getafe Valverde can count on Victor Ruiz and Nelson Valdez again, while Rami is fine as well and in the squad for this match. Missing are Cissokho and Bernat for some reason, while Canales and Mathieu are still recovering from their long term injuries and practicing light fitness.
