A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Valencia striker Roberto Soldado is confident that his side can upset the football betting odds by finishing in the Champions League places despite their current league position.

 

Los Che struggled throughout the early stages of the campaign and with them still languishing in mid-table during December, the board decided to sack club legend Mauricio Pellegrino after just a few months in charge.

 

Former Villarreal and Espanyol boss Ernesto Valverde was brought in to save their season and has done a good job so far, strengthening their defence and giving them more consistency throughout the whole side.

 

With seven games left, they now sit sixth in the standings, four points off the final Champions League place which is currently occupied by Philippe Montanier’s exciting young Real Sociedad team.

 

Valencia will have the perfect chance to take points off the Basque outfit when they travel to San Sebastian at the end of the month, but before that they have an equally important clash against fifth placed Malaga on Saturday.

 

Soldado knows his side face a tough task to finish in the top four, but remains upbeat about their chances and is confident that they can qualify for the Champions League.

 

“In my head I can see Valencia in the Champions League,” the striker told a Press conference. “I think we’ll be in the top four.

 

“The team is playing well and we’re working really hard. I’m sure we’ll achieve our goal.

 

“Over the next two weeks we play two teams fighting for the same position of us. They are big games, so we can’t relax. Malaga and Real Sociedad are not going to be easy matches for us – we just have to go into the games believing we can win,” he added.
