As the opponent, Barcelona have much facility to create danger. The trident of attack, composed by Messi, Suárez and Neymar, is the most feared in the world, being probable that they will score Valencia many times. 

Confirmed Lineup: C. Bravo, Jordi Alba, Dani Alves, Piqué, J. Mascherano, Busquets, Iniesta, I. Rakitić, L. Suárez, Neymar, L. Messi.
Coach: Luis Enrique.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match is that both teams will score, at least, one goal. Both teams are very strong in the offensive approach and have some weaknesses in the defensive. 
So, it' expected that will be a balanced match, with many opportunities in both areas
