Valencia faces Las Palmas in the first round of Spanish LaLiga. The home team finished last season in 12th position but was unfortunate over the season to concede so many goals and as a result of that, they hit the lower table position. However, they improved towards the end of the season and will continue to do so this term. Also, several players have joined Valencia in the latest transfer window and some of them will participate in this match. On the other side, Las Palmas has a lot to work on this year after a dismal second half to the season. They conceded 74 goals last season, confirming that they have a poor defence. Las Palmas appointed reserve team boss Manolo Marquez as their new head coach a few weeks ago. He was in charge of Las Palmas’ reserve team last season and he has never coached a top-flight side. Looking back at previous seasons, we may find that Valencia has a history in this competition, with 6 national titles and 7 of the Copa del Rey. Apart from tradition, their squad is better at this moment and Valencia looks good value to get three points in this match.
