Copa del Rey revenge & 3 other strong reasons Barca must beat Valencia
As Barca are set to host Valencia at Camp Nou in La Liga matchday 4, let's take a look why we should be the better team this time around:
Copa del Rey revenge
In May this year, Barca lost to Valencia (1-2) in the Copa del Rey final which saw Blaugrana only lift the La Liga in the 2018-19 season. We expect the Catalans to enter the pitch with extra motivation this Saturday.
Suarez is back in business
Luis Suarez returned to training after suffering an injury in the La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao. With the Uruguayan back in the squad, Barca's attack looks much more fearsome.
Griezmann's impressive numbers vs Valencia
In the last six games against Los Che, the Frenchman has been directly involved in seven goals: five he scored himself, two assisted. There's no reason we shouldn't expect his for to continue at Camp Nou.
Valencia's new coach
Earlier this week it was announced that Valencia have fired their coach Marcelino and appointed Albert Celades. Although we should never underestimate our opposition, this is 43-year-old's first major job, so not too much is expected from him.
