Rodrigo couldn’t continue his good run against FC Barcelona and was withdrawn with an injury problem

Having scored in the last two games that Valencia have played against the Blaugrana at Mestalla, he could only hit the bar on Thursday

Rodrigo Moreno didn’t have luck on his side on Thursday, and was forced to be substituted after 54 minutes due to an injury problem. After putting in a great performance as a secondary striker, in a midfield four that surprised FC Barcelona, he couldn’t put a goal to his name after hitting the crossbar in the 14th minute following a great headed effort.

The Valencia CF forward has scored in two of the last three games against FC Barcelona, with both of the goals coming at Mestalla. This time, however, he could not continue his streak. He threatened with one effort in the second half from outside of the box, before being forced off the field due to injury.

Marcelino chose not to risk Rodrigo’s issue getting worse, with Goncalo Guedes introduced into the fray as a result.
