Mestalla believes in salvation

Together. As Pipo said. Team and fans. Joined. hand in hand From the first to the last minute. This is how Valencia CF will be saved from relegation to the second division. It is the way. suffering. Winning by the minimum. Getting strong on defense. Leaving the skin in each duel. And of course leaning on and catching the positive energy of the stands. Mestalla is salvation.

It was demonstrated against Real Sociedad and, two weeks later, it was seen against Osasuna. Rubén Baraja’s men defeated the rojillos with a goal from Justin Kluivert, they chained two consecutive victories at home and come out of the relegation places. The old coliseum wins games. It is a first class stadium. What a breather!

The team needed another great night at Mestalla and they got it. From the impromptu welcome to the team bus on Calle Joan Reglà to the mutual applause at the end of the game. Valencianism applauded its audience. And backwards. 37,762 fans gave up the city’s fallas festival to cheer on their players and carry the team in an exercise of passion, loyalty and love for the shield. El Pipo appealed to that chemistry to get out of the lower positions and time is proving him right. Mestalla can with everything. Even with the chaotic management of Peter Lim.

El Pipo and Mestalla have made the reaction possible. The team will wake up this sixteenth Sunday, one point above Sevilla and Almería, both in decline. They are all good news. Valencia proved to be a team again and that is a guarantee of success. The clean sheet is no coincidence.

I go ahead but…

Valencia took a step forward towards permanence. But there is a lot left. The problem is that the feeling below the classification is that all direct rivals for relegation are alive. Cádiz and Getafe carried out a survival exercise, scoring a point at the Nuevo Mirandilla. Celta de Vigo became a little stronger thanks to the goals from Iago Aspas.

Espanyol were defeated at the Santiago Bernabéu as expected, but we must not forget that they were coming off a 6 out of 9 point streak. And luckily Valladolid left two points in the discount at the Martínez Valero. And if that was not enough, This afternoon there is a Sevilla-Almería at Pizjuán in which one of the two teams, if not both, will score points.

There is still a long way to go for salvation. Especially since next weekend the team visits Atlético de Madrid at the Metropolitano. A month ago it seemed impossible to win. Even scratch a spot. Pipo and Mestalla have changed everything. Valencianism now believes that they can get their hands on those of Cholo Simeone. The team too. Despite the referees. Despite Peter Lim. Valencia is and always will be in the first division.
