Valencia’s internationals are returning to Paterna and one of those who will do it with a smile on the mouth will be Carlos Soler. The Valencian qualified for the World Cup with Spain, playing the final match against Sweden as the starter. And he did acting as a midfielder, the position he likes the most, and where Luis Enrique has used it in his four international commitments with the senior team.

The fact is that Soler returns to club discipline already thinking about Sunday’s game before the Royal Society. And in this match Bordalás will have a dilemma with the black and white 10. With Hugo Guillamón sanctioned, the logical thing is that Soler returns to the medium, forming a trivote with Racic, who also returns exultant from his selection, and Wass. Hélder Costa and Hugo Duro would be in the bands.

This would be normal if Bordalás continues with his idea of ​​keeping the five midfielders and leave a single point above, in principle of Guedes. Soler already played against Atlético close to the right wing, he was even seen somewhat misplaced in some moments of the game, in which he spoke continuously with Bordalás about his position, especially when Valencia attacked.

The point is that Of the nine games that Carlos Soler has played this season with Valencia, in six of them he has played lying on the right wing. In the first five of the season (against Madrid it only lasted 15 minutes), with two midfielders, just as he played two seasons with Marcelino. From there he scored three goals and gave two assists. And on the last day, even closer to the right wing, along with three midfielders (Guillamón, Racic and Wass). Against Barça, Mallorca and Villarreal, Bordalás did align him as a pure midfielder, where he likes it the most. Against the Real, in Anoeta, the logical thing is that he returns to act as a midfielder, although this time with trivot, as he does in the Spanish team of Luis Enrique.
