Both of these two local rivals could enjoy historic cup success this season but, in league terms, this is a pivotal fixture in the race for Europe.

Villarreal have been the Champions League’s surprise package, knocking out Atalanta, Juventus and now Bayern Munich.

So, el Submarino Amarillo are through to the semi-finals for the first time in 16 years and will face Liverpool at Anfield in just eight days time.

Despite this, Unai Emery’s men are far from guaranteed to be back in any European competition next season.

Goals from Gerard Moreno and Manu Trigueros saw Villarreal beat Getafe 2-1 on Saturday but, despite this, they’re still down in seventh.

Valencia are three places and seven points below their hots but their biggest game of the season is coming up just this weekend.

Los Murciélagos will face Real Betis at Estadio de La Cartuja on Saturday in the Copa del Rey Final, looking to lift the trophy for the ninth time.

José Bordalás’ men will qualify for the Europa League group stages with victory in that final and that’s looking like their best route into Europe.

That’s because los Che slipped down to tenth place on Saturday, following their 2-1 reverse against Osasuna at Mestalla.

Thus, with all of Valencia’s eggs in the Copa del Rey basket, Villarreal will hope to take advantage at Estadio de la Cerámica.

Given that Unai Emery’s team are next in action against Liverpool in eight days time, he can surely play his best XI here.

This could see Étienne Capoue and Giovani Lo Celso return to midfield with Pervis Estupiñán, Raúl Albiol and Arnaut Danjuma also coming back in.

Dani Parejo and Francis Coquelin will both face the club they left for Villarreal less than two years ago.

José Bordalás, in contrast, may wrap his star players in cotton wool for Saturday.

Namely, Gonçalo Guedes, Carlos Soler and José Luis Gayà could be protected.

USA international Yunus Musah is currently out injured.
