The Valencia face the ten
journeys of the season in the best qualifying situation since the start of LaLiga, located in no man’s land, far from the competition positions european and with hardly any risk of suffering from permanence in the category.
With the dispute of thirty points ahead, the team coached by Javi Gracia is, with 33 points, at the same distance of Europe what of decline, since Villarreal is seventh with 43 points, while Eibar is seventeenth with 23.
With this qualifying panorama, the most positive part is that the Valencian team has away from the bottom of the table, to which he has been very close throughout the first round of the championship, until he has found himself in more than one day tied on points with teams in relegation places.
On the contrary, he never got a close look at the high ranking positions despite the fact that the initial objective of this campaign was to fight for a place in European competitions precisely in a season in which he has been absent from continental tournaments as a result of his discreet 2019-2020 campaign.
The Valencia most competitive of the season It has been seen in the matches played in the Mestalla in the second round, which has allowed the Valencian club to move away from the bottom of the classification, not only in points, but also in terms of the number of teams that follow in the table, Well, there are eight behind it.
Given the situation of the club, with a dome completely away from Valencianism and of the team, with no public in the stands and with many sports deficiencies after the numerous casualties and the absence of new arrivals last summer, Valencia’s competitive health is even better than could be expected.
In order not to suffer from here to the end of the League, the team does not have the worst possible calendar, because although he must face four rivals that precede him in the table, he has six commitments with teams that fight for permanence.
With regard to the most powerful, Valencia must receive in their next home match at the Real society (5th) and later to Barcelona (2nd), while at home he must travel twice to the Andalusian capital to play against Sevilla (4th) and Betis (6th).
Apparently the other rivals seem simpler, including six of the last eight classified, all those who follow him in the table except for Getafe and the Elche.
Valladolid (15th), Eibar (18th) and Alavés (19th) will pass through Mestalla, while Valencia will travel to face Cádiz (15th), Osasuna (13th) and Huesca (20th), which a priori is not presented as a overly compromised scenario.
Save a season full of uncertainties It cannot be considered a success, but at least it is a lesser evil given the prospects that in the months of November and December loomed over a team gripped by its game, its classification and its environment.
To end this campaign of the most dignified way possible, the team must maintain its consistency at home, shown with the thirteen points added out of the fifteen disputed in the second round at Mestalla, and accompany this dynamic with a substantial improvement away from home, where it has only added one point from the halfway point of the championship .
