Valencia and Villarreal will both be looking to get their seasons back on track when they meet on Saturday at 5:30pm (UK time).
Neither side have had much to enjoy this season, with Valencia currently enduring a tough run of results under new boss Jose Bordalas. The hosts are 11th going into this game but haven’t won in seven league games since a 4-1 win over Osasuna in September put them into second – losing four and drawing three since. Villarreal are just one point behind Valencia with a game in hand but have lost two of their past three matches having been La Liga’s final unbeaten team not too long ago.
