Player to Watch – Pepelu

Holding midfielder Pepelu has been one of Valencia’s most consistent performers this season and the 25-year-old has been averaging 2.2 tackles and 1.7 fouls per game in La Liga for Los Ches. Pepelu has started 100% of Valencia’s 18 La Liga fixtures so far this term and he should be a key component of their plans again on Tuesday.
