It’s three consecutive wins for Gary Neville and Valencia, two in Spanish La Liga Primera and one in Europa League. Confidence is pretty high right now at Mestalla football camp.
They beat rock bottom Granada 2 – 1 away from home, which allow them to move up to 11th place in La Liga standings, one place higher than Malaga who were held in a 1 – 1 draw against Real Madrid last night. Cristiano Ronaldo failed to convert a penalty and so Zidane’s Los Blancos now trail Barca with nine points gap.
Diego Simeone was not having a good weekend too. His Atletico Madrid were held to a goalles draw by 4th place Villarreal. Atletico are still 2nd in La Liga standings, but now trail Enrique’s Los Cule with eight points gap.
Still, there are 13 games to go. Anything can happen.
