Key players

Analysis:

Valencia are undergoing a torrid time in the La Liga. They are winless in their last 5 league games and certainly need to punch above their weight in this game, in order to beat Barcelona. They are coming on the back off an immediate draw at the hands of Alaves. The score read 1-1 and the lone scorer for Valencia was Jose Gaya who netted a goal in the nick of time. This precisely saved the game for Valencia.

The Catalan giants still have chances of winning the Spanish Liga title but they need to be on their feet and play good football in order to achieve that. They were outclassed by Granada in their previous game and this came as a shock to a lot of people. In spite of the opening goal by legendary Barca striker Lionel Messi, Barcelona lost the game 1-2. However, they look favorites against an under-confident and struggling Valencia.
