The squad are well aware that this Sunday’s game versus Real Sociedad (18:30CET) is going to be very tough, with Valencia CF needing to show their best to battle their way to a third consecutive victory in LaLiga. Marcelino prepared a very demanding session for the group, both physically and tactically, with only Ezequiel Garay, Andreas Pereira, Gabriel Paulista and Geoffrey Kondogbia not taking part.
After a drill on a small pitch, where the aim was to keep hold of possession at a high tempo, the players were then moved onto a full-sized pitch to go through phases of play in both attacking and defensive scenarios.
Although Geoffrey Kondogbia ended up watching the training session, he is gradually feeling better after his own injury problems. Alongside fitness coach Alberto Torres, Kondogbia worked alone with a ball, as he tries to get back to speed quickly.
