Valencia vs Villarreal match preview

The Derbi de la Comunitat is always a fixture to savour, but this is especially the case now, with both clubs in desperate need of points.

Valencia kick off outside the relegation zone, following recent back-to-back wins over Elche and then Real Valladolid.

In the latter, los Che came from behind to snatch the points, courtesy of Javi Guerra’s stoppage time screamer.

However, Rubén Baraja’s men could not make it three wins on the spin on Sunday, beaten 2-1 by fellow-strugglers Cádiz at Nuevo Mirandilla.

This defeat means los Murciélagos remain 17th, just two points clear of both Espanyol and Getafe.

They host Espanyol in the second last game of the season; how crucial could that be?

El Submarino Amarillo come into this one following back-to-back home wins, beating Espanyol 4-2 last Thursday before a 3-1 victory over Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Nicolas Jackson scoring in both games, Dani Parejo missing a penalty in both games, before Ramon Terrats sealed the win with his first La Liga goal at the weekend.

Quique Setién’s side have now won seven of their last ten league games so are up to fifth, five points adrift Real Sociedad with only five games to go.

Who will win this pivotal mid-week Valencian Community derby at Mestalla?
