Three stories you can not miss from Valencia CF - FC Barcelona

Valencia CF faces FC Barcelona tonight (8:45 pm) at Mestalla

A match for the memory of Daniel Wass, who never loses to Barça at home

One of the games Wass will always remember from his time at LaLiga is the one he played, in his first season with RC Celta, in the 5th round of LaLiga against FC Barcelona. The current footballer of Valencia CF enjoyed a convincing 4-1 win against the Barça team, which at the end of the course was proclaimed league champion. Despite the entity of the rival, Wass has never lost against FC Barcelona playing at home, since, in four games, one of them in the Copa del Rey, won two and tied the other two.

Neto, one of the few goalkeepers who has managed to "stop" Messi in their two duels

Neto has played two times against FC Barcelona and in both they have managed to get Leo Messi not to score, an achievement that is within the reach of very few goalkeepers who compete in LaLiga. In addition to Valencia CF goalkeeper, Unai Simon (Athletic Club), Jordi Masip (Valladolid) and Vaclik (Sevilla FC) have managed to stop the captain of FC Barcelona from scoring. Neto stands out from the rest in that he is the only one of the four who has achieved it in 180 minutes, the others, until now, have only managed to stop him in a game.

"Balanced" tie between Marcelino and Valverde

The two technicians have seen each other in 13 games until today's meeting in Mestalla, presenting a balanced tie since the two began in 2007 to fight battles from the bench with a RCD Espanyol - Recreativo, which the Asturian won 0-1. To this day, Marcelino and Valverde have each won four games and tie 5.
