Valour team news and form: Abysmall stuff from Valour

Yes, the team is performing well against Forge historically speaking, but the lack of quality that the players are showing this season is concerning. After two matches played, Valour are at the bottom of the table, with zero points to their name. It will take them some time to get up from the knock they’ve received recently.

Predicted lineup: Viscosi (GK), Facchinieri, Chantzopoulos, Samake, Verhoeven, Antonoglu, Campbell, Alarcon, Hundal, Binate & Swibel

Player to watch: Daniel Parra

Yes, Daniel may have joined Forge’s ranks on a season-long loan transfer, but there’s a high chance that he could make the deal permanent if he puts in the effort to be a key man for coach Bobby Smyrniotis this season. We know he has the quality to do so.

Parra firm starter for Forge

Daniel Parra was a starter for his manager in both Canadian Premier League games this season. He will surely start against Valour as well.
