Valencia vs Nottingham Forest Lineups, Team Information, Match Preview

Valencia

Over the last few years, Valencia has been struggling with the finances. There aren't many funds available for transfers and that is a fact that the fans have gotten used to as their team is preparing for another season. Valencia used to play in the Champions League, but those days seem long gone at this point. In the past decade, there were seasons when the team was barely surviving in La Liga. This summer the club has brought in two players, a defender Cenk Ozkacar from Lyon while Pepelu wore Levante's jersey last season. He plays in the midfield. Toni Lato has left on a free transfer to Mallorca.

Provisional lineup: Mamardashvili, Diakhaby, Ozkacar, Gaya, Correia, Racic, Pepelu, Koindredi, Perez, Andre, Lopez.

Nottingham Forest

The Premier League club has played one friendly match already defeating Notts County with a single goal as the difference maker. When Forest came back to the Premier League last season after more than a decade away, the club spent enormous amounts of money on new players, changing over 15 players. During the first part of the season, the team struggled and there were fears they would be relegated. However, the club survived and this summer they are taking a moderate approach to the transfer market. The only player that arrived at the moment is attacker Chris Wood while some veterans like Jesse Lingard and Andre Ayew left as their contracts expired. Giulian Biancone is out through injury.

Provisional lineup: Hennessey, Niakhate, Worrall, Mckenna, Richards, Williams, Kouyate, Mangala, Aguilera, Awoniyi, Wood.

Player to Watch: Taiwo Awoniyi

This will be the second season for the Nigerian striker at Nottingham Forest, he was bought last season from the Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin. Awoniyi had a decent first season in the Premier League scoring eleven goals with a single assist in 30 appearances.

His most efficient time was spent at Union Berlin where he went on to get 25 goals and deliver nine assists in 65 matches played. He also had positive stints with Royal Mouscron and spent time with Gent, NEC Nijmegen, and Mainz. Awoniyi also has accumulated six caps for the Nigerian national team scoring once.
