Mestalla will be, more than ever, the 12th man versus Real Sociedad

The squad are very focused ahead of facing an opponent that boasts good form at Mestalla

The weekend’s clash against Real Sociedad is the only thing in mind for Valencia CF, with the squad knowing that they can’t look beyond what will be a very tough game. Despite the gap between the two sides in the league table, the visitors boast the best points record at Mestalla in recent years. For that reason, the fans at Mestalla are going to need to be the 12th man to help the team towards three vital points.

Marcelino is waiting to find out if he can call upon some of his injured players, with Geoffrey Kondogbia still working hard to recover in time. Whoever features, however, will need to put in a shift to help Valencia CF against one of their bogey teams: Real Sociedad. During the last seven visits that the Basque club have made to Mestalla, they have won five, which even betters Real Madrid’s record of four.

After two consecutive wins, the team knows that making the most of the fans’ support at Mestalla will help them to finish as high in the league standing as possible. The players can feel the energy from the stands and they will need to soak up every last drop while they look to put an end to what has been a bad recent run against Real Sociedad on home soil.
