Description: CEV Vs VIL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Valencia look to make it two wins on the bounce as the club begins a new era in La Liga.
After a despondent season the last time around, Valencia knew things needed to change and change fast for them. After finishing in the top four for two seasons on the bounce, the ninth placed finish for the club the last time around was way below expectations.
The abject and lacklustre brand of football deployed by the club saw the club’s management team opt for a change of names at the side. A shuffle at the top lead to the side ushering in Garcia as its new manager with the newly appointed man getting life off underway at the club with a two goal win over Levante.
The six goal thriller was a particularly pleasing result owing to the immense fighting spirit on show by Valencia. Despite being down twice in the clash and devoid of a slew of attacking names who have all departed for new ventures, Valencia managed to come back into the encounter to eventually take the three points comfortably.
CEV Vs VIL Dream11 Probable Winner
While it was only the club’s opening match of the season, the performance was one laden with positive takeaways. The club has set the foundation for a potentially promising season, a win it will want to build on when it comes across Celta Vigo today.
For Celta Vigo, this looks to be another sortie where they’ll be engulfed in the relegation squabble. While they did extremely well to pull off a draw against Eibar the last time around, Valencia is a completely different proposition, an opposition which will dish out Celta Vigo’s first defeat of the campaign.

Dream 11 Picks
Celta Vigo’s Ivan Villar pulled off one of the showings of his career the last time around. Despite Eibar coming hard at him, he refused to be fazed with him helping his side traverse rough waters with a bevy of saves.
All across last season, Valencia failed to ever really propel themselves into the echelons of the points tally due to their backline. This is way too leaky a defence, something which was emoted in the side’s season opening win as well.
However, Celta Vigo could be a side Valencia are able to keep at bay. A dreary showing in attack against Eibar doesn’t hold Celta Vigo in good stead today with them set to get extremely frugal touches of the ball in this one.
It’s a narrative which sees us emerge with a trio of picks from Valencia after our discourse. We begin with CB Gabriel Paulista who scored for Valencia the last time around, pairing him up with the indomitable Daniel Wass and Jose Gaya.
With them losing out on a hoard of pivotal names in the attacking docket, Valencia needed their fresh signings to hit the ground running immediately. Luckily for the club, exactly that happened to see the side pull off a thrilling win in its opener.
The match winner for the club on the day with the two goals in his kitty, Manu Vallejo will become the first name to be indulged in our side. Slotting in next to him is creator Lee Kang-In, without whose services Manu would have failed to have pop up with those goals with Lee providing the two assists.
CDM Geoffrey Kondogbia was a rock in the centre of the midfield for the club to make him the third selection from the club. Elsewhere, with Valencia’s defence having traditionally struggled to parry away attacking plays, we have a duo represent us from the home side.
Its one made up of the vibrant and vivid Brais Mendez and Okay Yokuslu, two names capable of providing much yearned for impetus to the side’s attacking gameplan.
The ever reliable Maxi Gomez once again shone for Valencia. He scored on the one occasion for the club along with providing unstinted support to help create the remaining three goals for the side.
Celta Vigo’s top scorer last season with ten goals and three assists, Iago Aspas will be completing our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The one goal for Gomez against Levante sees him lead our side out as the captain while Manu is the vice-captain.
