Pereira set for Valencia debut

Valencia are set to hand a debut to Manchester United loanee Andreas Pereira’s in Saturday’s clash with Atletico Madrid, say reports.

Plaza Deportiva state Los Che Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral views the Brazilian as highly-talented and looks set to deploy him on the right side of midfield, in place of Joao Cancelo – who has joined Inter on loan.

Carlos Soler started in that position during the side’s pulsating 2-2 draw at Real Madrid last time out but is set to switch back to the left-side of midfield, with Jose Luis Gaya dropping back into defence.

Geoffrey Kondgobia is set to partner Dani Parejo in the centre of midfield, with Alvaro Medran – who started the league opener at Las Palmas – now on loan at Alaves.

Ezequiel Garay is set to partner Jeison Murillo in the heart of defence with Ruben Vezo and Gabriel Paulista both unavailable due to injury.
