VAL vs EIB Dream11 Prediction: Valencia vs Eibar Best Dream11 Team for today’s La Liga match as we help you make your Dream11 team
When the 2019-20 edition of La Liga had made an advent into the footballing fraternity, Valencia had emerged as one of most languid sides in the league. Caught in a rut, the club has been hailed for its ability to wrench out of that ordeal and make massive strides in the points tally.
A change of leadership at the club saw the side overhaul its underachieving form to unlock its true potential and finishing 2019 having climbed as high as 8th place in the points tally. Their previous outing saw them finish the bygone year with a 1-1 draw against Real Valladolid to see the side unbeaten in their previous four encounters.
And as they usher in 2020, the side will be looking to continue galloping up the league standings when they face off against Eibar today. They are up against a side which finds itself languishing in 16th place with a mere 19 points to their name, just five points above the relegation spots. However with the club winning their foregone encounter with a 3-0 thumping of Granada, they are bound to come into this one with some kind of momentum in their ranks.
It won’t be a straightforward encounter by any means for Valencia with Eibar clutching at straws in a bid to keep themselves floating above the relegation zone. However, the writing is on the wall for Eibar with the side up against a staunch side, one they’ll find hard to put down on the day.

Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for VAL vs EIB Dream11
Both the sides have wavered and faltered defensively, a narrative which will see either side concede in this one. It’s something which saw us go in with the goal-keeper who is likely to pull off the more amount of saves which lead us towards the articulate Marko Dmitrovic for the forthcoming contest.
Defenders for VAL vs EIB Dream11
With two sides who have shipped in the 53 goals in 36 outings till now being involved in the day’s clash, we have decided to limit ourselves to the bare minimum of three selections in this facet of our Dream 11 side. A cleansheet looks extremely unlikely for either side, something which emoted us towards opting for only the attackingly inclined defenders from either side for the day.
It sees us make Jose Gaya from Valencia our lone pick while from Eibar we are venturing in with a duo of picks. The indomitable and diminutive Alvaro Tejero and Paulo Oliveira have consistently cantered their way down the park for the side to provide apt support to their attacking sorties, making them ideal picks from the side.
Midfielders for VAL vs EIB Dream11
A major reason for Valencia thriving so much recently has been down to the meticulous attacking plays the side have fathomed. They have left oppositions aghast, traversing past their defences with ease and we fully envisage them emulating the same come a defence which has let in the 28 goals in 18 encounters.
It sees us bring in both of Daniel Wass and Carlos Soler from the side, two players who’ll be of paramount importance in both the ambits of the side’s gameplan. Ferran Torres comes in to accompany the duo as well while it’s the lone selection from the opposition with us opting for Edu Exposito.
Strikers for VAL vs EIB Dream11
With the six goals to his name till now with the one assist to go with it, Maxi Gomez from Valencia was always going to be an instant selection for us. He’s partnered up by Rodrigo Moreno, someone who has provided him pinch perfect assistance to see the two send defences packing with disdain.
Meanwhile, with Orellana unavailable for Eibar for the day, Charles Oliverira will be handed over an escalated role for the side. It’s something which will see him find his feet in a majority of the side’s attacking sojourns to see us make the striker our pick from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Gomez comes out to captain our setup for the day while Moreno is our vice-captain
