FC Bayern München vs Valencia Live Stream
Two favourites of the group F will come together in the internal opposition in the first round of the Champions League. Bavaria will take Valencia at the home arena in Munich. The most interesting, in 2001, it was a German machine that stopped brilliant Valencia in the European Cup final.
Mauricio Pellegrino remembers that game like no one else. He had lost the duel against Oliver Kahn in the penalty series after match. So the motivation of Spanish will be exorbitant.
For the match against Bayern, Valencia comes not in the best conditions. Valencia has serious squad problems, especially in the middle of the field. Ever Banega, David Albelda and Fernando Gago are unavailable at the same time due to injuries. Vacant place in the centre next to Tino Costa can take Dani Parejo. Also there are some problems on the left flank. With the possession of Aly Cissokho Valencia solved the problem of the defensive back, resulting from the leaving of Alba. But it’s a big question, who will play with him in a pair. Neither Mathieu, neither Guardado, nor Vieira are not impressive this season. And Piatti is also injured.
Heynckes choice of performers, of course, is mach better. There are some problems on the left flank of the defence. Cause Contento and Alaba are still injured. But this position can be closed by Badstuber, Jan or Luis Gustavo. Or coach can return Philip Lam to this position. Franck Ribery has a little damage, so his play is under question. But his position can be substituted by Toni Kroos and Sherdan Shachiri.
The foreign press is also actively put into the main part of Bavaria’s squad a Spanish newcomer Javi Martinez, who moved to Germany for forty millions this summer. They see him paired with Schweinsteiger, while Luiz Gustavo and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk should take their places on the bench.
