The solidity of the Valencianistas against the league leaders

This Saturday, 6th of May, 2017 at 4pm at the Antonio Puchades stadium, sees Valencia CF Femenino take on FC Barcelona, current leaders of la Liga Iberdrola, in one of the toughest games of the season. The game pits the league leaders against the third place team on Matchday 28 of the Iberdrola Primera División Femenina RFEF, and will be broadcast live on Gol and VCFradio.

Cristian Toro’s players, who have cemented their third place position in the table on 62 points, 11 points ahead of fourth placed Levante UD, go into the game on top form with the aim of continuing to compete at the highest level. Our players are unbeaten in their last 16 matches, having won their last game against UDG Tenerife (1-3).

Furthermore, the blanquinegras’ home form at the Valencia CF Training Ground is excellent: they are yet to lose at home this season and have only drawn three times.

Xavi Llorens’ side, after their recent 13-0 win against Oiartzun KE, are league leaders on 71 points, and are well aware of the need to pick up the three points against the Valencianistas if they want to stay ahead of Atlético de Madrid Femenino.

Valencia CF Femenino, who have conceded the least goals in the division (9 goals in 27 games) and scored the third most goals (61), take on the team who have conceded the second least (10) and scored the most goals (95).

Whilst last season’s results didn’t go the way of the Valencianistas (2-0 and 1-2), in 2014/15 our team won both league games (2-1 and 1-2), as well as winning the semi-final of the Copa de SM la Reina in Melilla (1-0). This season the blanquinegras picked up a deserved point away at FC Barcelona (1-1).

Gio Carreras, Valencia CF Femenino midfielder, spoke about FC Barcelona’s visit on Matchday 28 of la Liga Iberdrola: “Our league position has never been the focus for us, I think that’s one of the keys to demanding the maximum from ourselves in every match. We’re really looking forward to this weekend’s game; we’re going into it with hope and excitement, and with the aim of carrying on improving and growing, and taking on one of the best teams in Europe. FC Barcelona are a really complete team. They’ve got players who are good on the ball and up front they’ve got players who can make the difference, with quality and goalscoring ability.”

She also highlighted the work the team have put in to go on an unbeaten run of 16 games. “I think everyone’s done their bit. We know how important it is to work hard as a team, both in attack and in defence. That’s what’s making us a really solid team”.
