Las Blancas are on a good dynamic; they have won their latest two games: their Copa de la Reina fixture against Rayo Vallecano (1-0) and their latest league game against Madrid CFF (3-4). They stand 9th in Primera Iberdrola with 22 points.
On the other side of the coin, we have Valencia, who stand 14th in the league. Las Valencianistas drew their latest Primera Iberdrola game against Real Betis and lost their Copa de la Reina round of 8 against Deportivo 7-2. Their former coach, Irene Ferreras, was let go earlier this month. She had a great season last year with Rayo Vallecano and was hired by Valencia in June with high expectations. After going 15 weeks without winning, the club decided to part ways with her. Tomorrow’s game will be the first for their new head coach, José Bargues. The club has announced that they will be bringing in a bus full of supporters from Valencia to Madrid.
The referee in charge of the game will be Paola Cebollada López.
Samara Ortiz is still recovering from her clavicle injury. Asllani was left out of the Copa de la Reina squad because of an injury, as well, so, she might still be absent tomorrow. We know Ainoa will be suspended for the game, which really damages the team’s already weak ability to overcome high presses.
Valencia have no suspensions. Alejandra Serrano, who plays as an attacking midfielder, has a long-term injury and will be left out of the squad.
CD Tacón: Yohana; Babett, Ohale, Daiane, Esther; Lorena, Thaisa, Kaci, Malena; Jakobsson and Jessica.
Valencia CF: María Pi; V. Calligaris, Berta Pujadas, van den Berg, Bea Beltrán; P. Guerrero, Gaitán, Sandra Hernández, Carol; Bonsegundo y Mari Paz.
It is very hard to predict what the new coach will want to do, so take the predicted Valencia line-up with a pinch of salt.
