Latest performances in all competitions
Valencia will target their second win in a row in all competitions this Wednesday when they welcome their rivals to the Estadio de Mestalla.
The hosts come into this tie fresh from a narrow 1-0 win over Baleares in the Copa del Rey.
But before that win, Los Murciélagos last outing in the league was a chastening 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid; a result that added another dent further Misery to José Bordalás’ inconsistent season.
The hosts who have taken 28 points from their opening 20 games are currently sitting in 10th place. However, the competitive nature of La Liga this season means that they are only five points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid.
They still have the chance to finish within the top four, but they must cut out their recent inconsistencies if they are to get a good result against the high-flying Sevilla.
Possible Valencia starting line-ups
Jasper Cillessen; Daniel Wass, Mouctar Diakhaby, Omar Alderete, Jose Gaya; Yunus Mussa, Guillamon, Uros Racic, Hugo Duro; Goncalo Guedes, Manu Vallejo.
Injured: Thierry Correia, Denis Cheryshev, Maxi Gomez, Daniel Wass and Helder Costa
Sevilla will be desperate to shake off their Copa del Rey disappointment when they play Valencia this Wednesday.
Julen Lopetegui’s men come into this tie on the back of a 2-1loss to Betis in the Copa del Rey. Despite taking the lead in the game through Papu Gomez, Sevilla were sent packing out of the competition after Nabil Fekir and Sergio Canales scored for the hosts.
Prior to that loss, Sevilla were on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, while winning the three games they played before the loss.
They currently sit in second, five points behind Real Madrid, having played a game more. A win in this game will take them two points behind the leaders and will also boost their confidence ahead of the title run-in.
Possible Sevilla starting line-ups
Marko Dmitrovic; Gonzalo Montiel, Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Marcos Acuna; Ivan Rakitic, Reges Fernando, Joan Jordan; Papu Gomez, Rafa Mir, Lucas Ocampos.
Valencia 1-3 Sevilla
