Valencia They face Ajax with several injuries
Valencia went into their Champions League opener in crisis mode after the sacking of Marcelino and hiring of Albert Celades, but a lot has changed since then.
They won 1-0 away at Chelsea in that match and also earned an impressive 1-0 win on the road in Bilbao at the weekend.
There is still a lingering sense of discontent in the fanbase, but Los Che have shown that they can be competitive on the pitch under Celades.
They still haven’t won at home, though, under the new boss and will be trying to change that on Wednesday night when they take on Ajax.
Ajax are undefeated so far and have scored 21 times across their past seven matches, so they will certainly pose a threat to a Valencia side missing five potential starters in the form of Jose Gaya, Cristiano Piccini, Kevin Gameiro, Carlos Soler and Geoffrey Kondogbia.
It’s set to be a fascinating duel as Champions League football returns to Mestalla this Wednesday night at 21:00 CEST.
