Valencia will be hoping they can continue their winning run in La Liga when they host Espanyol on Friday at 3:15pm (UK time).

Jose Bordalas’ men went into the mini-Christmas break off the back of three straight league victories as part of a seven-game unbeaten run since losing to Real Betis towards the end of October. Draws against Atletico Madrid, Real Sociedad and Rayo Vallecano have been accompanied by wins over Villarreal, Celta Vigo, Elche and Levante to push Valencia up to eighth, just two points off the top four. Espanyol, meanwhile, have been inconsistent in the league, trading wins and defeats, and are five points behind Valencia in 11th. They are also unfortunately just eight points above the relegation zone, so must have one eye over their shoulders.

Valencia team news

Uros Racic was sent off in Valencia’s 4-3 win over Levante last time out and so misses the final game of 2021. He will likely be replaced in midfield by Yunus Musah who actually came on for him against Levante, with Racic’s second yellow card coming while he was on the bench. Gabrial Paulista is also missing for Valencia through injury, while Dimitri Foulquier, Thierry Correia and Toni Lato are doubts.

Valencia predicted XI: Cillessen; Piccini, Guillamon, Diakhaby, Gaya; Costa, Musah, Soler, Cheryshev; Duro, Guedes.

Espanyol team news

Espanyol are looking relatively fresh for their trip to Valencia, but David Lopez is a guaranteed absentee, still out with an injury. Oscar Gil and Landry Dimata are doubts for Espanyol, but other than that we could see the same XI that started against Celta Vigo before the break.

Espanyol predicted XI: Lopez; Miguelon, Gomez, Cabrera, Pedrosa; Puado, Darder, Herrera, Vidal; Melendo, De Tomas.
