On October 17, the match of the 9th round of the Spanish La Liga will take place, in which Barcelona will play at home with Valencia. The forecast for this match is given by the famous commentator Mikhail Polenov.

Catalans and Valencians are neighbors in the standings, having 12 points each. The gap from the leading Real Sociedad has already reached eight points, but there is a match in reserve, and Blaugrana even has two matches in reserve.

Both teams approach the face-to-face meeting in a bad mood, because Barcelona has won only one match out of the last five in all tournaments, and Valencia has a 4-match winless streak.

The "Blue-garnet" are entering an extremely crucial part of the season. After the match with the Valencians, they are waiting for the most important match in the Champions League with Dynamo Kyiv, where after two defeats there is no longer the right to misfire, and next weekend Ronald Koeman's team will play el clasico with Real Madrid.

At Barcelona, Aguero has recovered from injury, although he has not yet managed to get in shape, unlike Fati, who is already fully ready to play. The attacking potential of the Catalans has grown, and the game with Valencia, according to Mikhail Polenov, can be productive. Bordalas started playing aggressive football with Valencia, so goals at Camp Nou should be expected from both sides.
