Over the years, Jaume Domenech has been one of Valencia’s busiest players. With his side’s defence failing to get its house in order, the shot stopper has repeatedly been asked to over the defensive side of the game, a duty he’s assiduously pulled off to put to bed a string of attacks.
While Atletico Madrid’s defensive guile and gallantry has over the years been well documented, the 2020-21 season has seen the club even further elevate their pluck and grit. The side’s disciplined and responsible defensive demeanour has seen them pull off 6 cleansheets in 8 matches, a period which has seen them concede on just two occasions.
The side always looks good for a cleansheet to see us opt for Kieran Trippier, Mario Hermoso and Stefan Savic from the club. The home unit on the other hand will see the versatile Daniel Wass once again find a place in our setup.
Marcos Llorente with the three goals and two assists will be the first pick for us from the visiting unit for the day’s proceedings. Joining up with him is wide attacking player Yannick Carrasco with his strong start to the season seeing him nail down his place in the side’s playing 11.
Valencia’s top scorer with four goals and the two assists to go with them, Carlos Soler retains his place in our team.
Although he still has a long way to go before he can truly justify the staggering amount his side shelved for him, Joao Felix is showing signs of coming good this time around. He’s top scoring for the side with five goals to see us opt for him today.
Angel Correa has been the top provider for the club with five assists with him and Felix moving in unison to manifest goals at crucial junctures for the club. Maxi Gomez with his three goals will meanwhile be our pick from Valencia.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Felix’s five goals see him captain our team with Correa slotting in next to him as the vice-captain.
Domenech, Wass, Hermoso, Trippier, Savic, Soler, Yannick, Llorente, Gomez, Correa, Felix
