Deportivo vs Valencia CF Match Preview

Valencia CF just finished the signing of Francis Coquelin from Arsenal FC and the player has already been put on the squad list to face Deportivo La Coruna. Coquelin is replacing Kondogbia in the squad who's unavailable and might even get his first start as well. I reckon we are going to see Maksimovic and Parejo in midfield, though you never know and Marcelino might even start Coquelin, though I must say that would be a surprise, especially after Maksimovic had some good games recently.

These days every match is a must win match and the players need to get into a winning mentality, where the team has to win every single match, has to beat every opponent facing them. Deportivo La Coruna are going to be a tricky opponent, and its never easy against these types of teams, but I am expecting a 2-0 win here or something comfortable along those lines.

While we are at new players Vietto had an amazing start to his loan move here, scoring 3 goals on his debut for Valencia CF, especially after a long haul being goalless. Will that amazing display grant him a starting place in tonight's match or will Marcelino take it slow with him and go with the standard starting eleven of Zaza and Moreno? Will be fun to find out who gets to start, certainly a few starting dilemmas for the coach, but that is a good problem to have!

Valencia CF squad:
GK: Neto, Jaume
DEF: Montoya, Garay, Vezo, Gabriel, Gaya, Lato
MID: Coquelin, Maksimović, Parejo, Nacho Gil, Guedes, Ferran Torres
ATT: Zaza, Rodrigo, Vietto, Santi Mina
