Valencia vs Aston Villa Lineups and Last Match

Valencia

Valencia still have a few weeks before their La Liga campaign begins. So far, the pre-season has brought 4 wins in 4 matches played with Valencia conceding just 1 goal in those 4 games. They already beat an English opposition this summer, and edged Nottingham 1-0 two weeks ago.

Valencia had a full week to prepare for this match so they will be fresh. One player that is unlikely to play is winger Yunus Musah. He is on the verge of joining Milan.

Predicted Lineup – Mamardashvili (GK), Correia, Diakhaby, Paulista, Gaya, Almeida, Pepelu, Castillejo, Guerra, Duro & Mari

Aston Villa

After Unai Emery decided to arrange 2 friendlies with less than 48 hours gap between them it was obvious that rotation of the squad will be required. Emery started his best XI on Thursday vs Lazio and despite 7 of those being subbed at halftime now it seems more of the fringe players will play from the off. This is logical considering Villa will want to give their stars some protection and rest before the start of the Premier League season.

Forward Philogene is one of those that could start and he has been impressive this summer when given a chance. The returning from injury playmaker Coutinho could be picked from the off too but he still can't play more than 60 minutes. At the same time, the likes of Konsa, Tielemans and Olsen played the full 90 minutes vs Lazio, so they could be benched now.

Villa remain without both Aaron and Jacob Ramsey for this game. Traore, Moreno and Duran also nurse injuries and sit out. Carlos and goalkeeper Steer complete the long injury list.

Predicted Lineup – Martinez (GK), Cash, Mings, Torres, Revan, Luiz, Coutinho, Buendia, McGinn, Diaby & Philogene

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Moussa Diaby

Diaby was made Aston Villa's record signing earlier this summer and the explosive winger has hit the ground running straight away. Coming from the Bundesliga Moussa Diaby brings speed and directness with him. He scored in both of his first starts for the Villains and it is clear that Diaby is eager to justify his price tag as fast as possible.

Diaby played only 45 minutes on Thursday so we can expect him to start this weekend. We fancy Moussa Diaby's chances to find the back of the net again. He can certainly hurt Valencia's backline with his speed.
