Victory SC and Club Valencia face of in tonight’s vital STO male’ League match for both the clubs. Victory SC is currently in 5th place of the points table and would want to cement their position to ensure a smooth qualification to the Premier League, with they missed out last season with a much stronger squad at their disposal. Club Valencia on the other hand has just one point from their 4 matches, and is yet to win a game this season. Even though they have a game in hand, its against the league favorites New Radiant SC, hence its important for them to get a result from tonight’s match.
Club Valencia enjoyed a much a longer break since their last match, as that they did not play in match day 5, given that New Radiant SC was travelling to India to play their AFC Cup match. Its plenty of time for Soba and Valencia to prepare themselves and correct any issues with the team, if time was a factor. Even though it was expected to be a rebuilding job for Soba at Valencia, they were expected to deliver a better result and performance than what they are currently. Hence there is a lot of pressure for the players and Soba to get a result tonight.
Victory SC has had mixed season so far. They have won against TC and Green Streets, arguably stronger teams in the league, but lost to United Victory, Maziya and Eagles. With the first round of league coming to a close, match against Valencia is vital to them to cement the current position. With only the match against New Radiant left in the first round after this, 3 points would go a long way for Kiss and the team to relax before the match against arch rival New Radiant SC. Victory SC has been practicing very hard under the guidance of Kiss, sometimes 2 to 3 times a day, to ensure the team performance.
We can expect an exciting match, with a lot of goal scoring chances to both the teams. Victory is currently better placed than Valencia and might just edge the match
