Valencia will look to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone in La Liga when they play host to Celta Vigo on Saturday at 5.30pm (UK time).

It has been a season of off-field drama for Valencia which has filtered through to their form in La Liga, with Javi Gracia’s men currently sitting just three points above the drop zone, and they enter this contest against a Celta side unbeaten in the last four matches.

Valencia vs Celta Vigo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Unrest off the pitch and a mass exodus over the summer has left Valencia vulnerable in La Liga this season. Gracia has so far kept Los Che hovering above the relegation trap door, but a wobble at any stage between now and the end of the campaign could seriously jeopardise their top-flight status.

Valencia are winless in two, recently losing to champions Real Madrid, and Celta will be aiming to inflict further woe on the Mestalla club, having already put them to the sword on matchday two. Eduardo Coudet’s side are nine points off fifth so will need to start putting serious points on the board if they are the produce a late charge for European football.

  • Valencia (vs Real Madrid): Domenech; Correia, Gabriel, Ferreira, Gaya; Wass, Racic, Soler, Guedes; Gomez, Vallejo.
  • Celta Vigo (vs Elche): Blanco; Mallo, Araujo, Murillo, Caricol; Tapia, Suarez, Nolito, Mendez; Aspas, Mina.

Jasper Cillessen and Mouctar Diakhaby remain the only major absentees for the hosts, while Celta Vigo are without the services of David Junca.

Players to watch:

  • Valencia: Despite this difficult campaign for Los Che there have been some nuggets of hope, chiefly the continued rise of Carlos Soler and emergence of fledgling talent Yunus Musah. The former has developed at a considerable rate since breaking into the first team five years ago, but this season he has elevated his game to a whole new level. He has been directly involved in 11 goals in La Liga, which includes five assists, and has already netted six times, a career-best tally. On a more granular level, he has scoring pedigree in this particular fixture, netting in two of his four La Liga appearances at Mestalla against Celta, during which time those two strikes resulted in winning goals. Gracia could do with a similar moment of magic from his midfield talisman this weekend.
  • Celta Vigo: Another player who boasts a strong record in this fixture is Iago Aspas, Celta’s superlative marksman. The 33-year-old has scored five goals in his last six La Liga appearances against Valencia, including a brace in the reverse fixture this season at Balaidos. Those goals have helped take his tally to nine for the season which, coupled with his five assists, makes him one of La Liga’s most lethal forwards. He has netted at least 14 La Liga goals in each of his five seasons and remains devastatingly clinical as the Spaniard enters his twilight years.
