Valencia CF’s shot accuracy is one of the keys behind their turnaround

Only FC Barcelona have better numbers than Marcelino’s side

One of the key factors behind Valencia CF’s brilliant season, which will see them compete in the Champions League next campaign, has been their massively increased shooting accuracy. Their 51.6% success rate is only bettered by LaLiga champions FC Barcelona.

With 63 goals in the league, the club have bettered their figures from the last two seasons, with Rodrigo the chief player to benefit from the fruits of the collective’s labour. The Spain international has had 66 shots, with 39 of those going on target, with Simone Zaza (55 shots) and Gonçalo Guedes (36 shots) in his wake.

From LaLiga’s match day five, Valencia CF have been in the top four, showing that they can balance their defensive work with their offensive play nicely. This Sunday at Mestalla they face RC Deportivo (12:00CET) and the team will battle to keep up with their excellent statistics.
