VAL vs VIL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Both Valencia and Villarreal will be looking for a win when they meet in La Liga at Mestalla, in Valencia, on Saturday night (IST).
Valencia have failed to build on to their impressive 4th placed finish last season. Too many draws and a bad home form took the sting out of their aspirations just a few months after the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
Manager Marcelino García is feeling the heat at the moment. Few more games producing unexpected results and his own job could come under serious threat.
The biggest problem for Valencia this season is the lack of goals. They have scored just 19 goals in the 20 matches, conceding 18 times. This is the big reason why they have failed to win enough matches, just five out of the 20, with only two have come in home matches.
But Valencia can still save the season and a good winning streak could bring them back in contention for the European places. At the moment, they are at 9th on the table but are behind by just seven points from top-4.
Villarreal, on the other hand, are the other team who have underperformed hugely this season. The Yellow Submarine parted ways with Javier Calleja due to too many bad results which left the club deep in the relegation zone.
Luis Garcia Plaza is at the helm of the team now but he has failed to produce the desired results as well. The club is still rooted at the foot of the table and is still searching for its league win under him.

VAL vs VIL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Valencia vs Villarreal Team News:
Injured – Goncalo Guedes and Geoffrey Kondogbia both have been ruled out with their respective injuries and won’t be involved.
Suspended – Former Arsenal centre-back Gabriel Paulista will be serving a one-game-ban after getting his fifth booking of the season in the last league game.
Questionable – The central defensive midfield could see a problem if Francis Coquelin is not able to shrug off a minor knock. He remains questionable as is 31-year-old striker Kevin Gameiro.
Note: Daniel Wass is a good option if Coquelin misses out with an injury. Meanwhile, Mouctar Diakhaby could come into the heart of the defence for the suspended Paulista.
Key Players – Mina, Moreno
Injured – Club legend Bruno Soriano has been ruled out with an injury. The 34-year-old has spent all his laying career with Villarreal and made over 400 appearances for his boyhood club.
Suspended – Ramiro Funes Mori picked up his fifth booking of the season in the last game and will be serving a one-game ban here.
Questionable – Manuel Morlanes meanwhile is carrying a knock and will be assessed ahead of the match.
Note: With Funes Mori out with a suspension, Victor Ruiz is expected to partner Alvaro Gonzalez at the back.
Manu Trigueros is back with full fitness and is in contention to start in the midfield. However, the coach may not risk him and could stick with Caseres and Iborra in the centre of the field.
Key Players – Ekambi, Cazorla
