Valencia have been struggling in La Liga this season and are five points above the relegation zone. The Bats have been poor on the road but hard to beat at home.

Javi Gracia’s side lost 2-0 at Real Madrid where they never looked like scoring. They returned home and won 2-0 against Celta Vigo, scoring twice in added time after playing against 10 men for the final 30 minutes.

Valencia’s last match was a 3-0 defeat at Getafe. They were 1-0 down when Mouctar Diakhaby was sent off in the 51st minute and were well beaten.
