Pre-season is back in action with another round this weekend as Valencia plays an intriguing friendly against Unai Emery’s impressive Aston Villa side at the Estadio de Mestalla on Saturday.
Aston Villa finished seventh in the Premier League last season and have shown significant improvement under Unai Emery. The Birmingham side drew 3-3 against Brentford last week and will need to work hard to win this game.
Valencia, on the other hand, secured 16th place in the La Liga table last season and have struggled in the past year. Los Che eased to a 2-0 margin against Deportivo Alaves in their previous match and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Valencia vs Aston Villa Prediction
Aston Villa have excellent players in their ranks and have grown so far under Unai Emery. The likes of Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins can be lethal on their day and will look to prove their mettle this weekend.
Valencia are in the midst of transition at the moment and desperately need a shot in the arm. Aston Villa are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this match.
Tip: Valencia 1-3 Aston Villa
