The final La Liga game of 2022 is a Derbi de la Comunitat, so who will end the year on a high?

These two return to action in ninth and tenth respectively, with Villarreal two points better off than their cross-city rivals.

It has been a turbulent season for el Submarino Amarillo so far, not least the departure of manager Unai Emery in October.

His successor Quique Setién actually lost his first two league games at the helm, before a much-needed win over Espanyol before the break.

Since then, Villarreal have reached the Copa del Rey third round, putting nine past Santa Amalia before an extra time victory over Guijuelo.

To date this season, they’ve been forced to play all nine home fixture at Levante’s Estadi Ciutat de València.

This though will be Villarreal’s first game back at the newly-renovated Estadio de la Cerámica, so their supporters will be very much up for it.

Valencia meantime have struggled for consistency since Gennaro Gattuso arrived in the summer.

Los Che were winless in five before claiming victory in their most-recent outing, hammering Real Betis at Mestalla.

André Almeida, Hugo Guillamón and Justin Kluivert on target in a 3-0 success.

That though was 51 days ago and, with los Murciélagos recieving a bye in the Copa, they have not been in action since.

So, with home advantage on their side, Villarreal are favourites to win this derby.
