For Valencia meanwhile, all eyes are on the upcoming Copa del Rey Final.

Los Murciélagos beat Athletic Club Bilbao 2-1 on aggregate earlier this month so will attempt to win the Copa for the ninth time next month.

They'll take on Real Betis at Estadio de La Cartuja on 23 April with silverware on the line.
