Barcelona vs. Valencia: La Liga – Match Preview

Valencia travel to Barcelona having dismissed coach Marcelino during the recent international break.

Barcelona have made a mixed start to the 2019-20 La Liga campaign, claiming just four points from three games.

Last time out they were held to a 2-2 draw away at Osasuna, conceding a late equaliser.

Valencia have claimed the same amount of points as Barcelona and the sacking of Marcelino seems very harsh.

Marcelino guided Valencia to the Copa del Rey in 2019 as well as Champions League football.
