Yellow Jersey - Head to head
Nibali is a great rider, disciplined and is for me an outsider for the podium places. His time trial is ok, and in the mountains I don't see too many problems for him.
Valverde of course also climbs very well, but in the Tour de France somehow he falls through every time, with mostly 1 bad day spoiling it and then he lets it go. That combined with better time trial for Nibali makes me go for the more reliable Italian here. GL
