Valencia will look to continue their recent good run of form while Villarreal are playing to remain in a European spot as the season comes to an end.

Valencia have had an underwhelming season that will see them finish outside the top ten.

They are currently 12th in the league table with 46 points from 37 games after managing to win 13 of their league matches.

There is an astonishing 17 points gap between them and Athletic Bilbao who are occupying the final European position in the league table.

They have managed to halt their losing streak by picking up 2 wins from their last 2 games and will hope to continue that form with a win in this match.

They have lost one of their last 9 home games, winning 7 and drawing one.

Their last league home game was a 4-1 win over Osasuna.

They have managed to secure the long term future of Carlos Soler which could spur them on in this game.

Villarreal are currently 5th in the league table which is the first Europa league spot, after what could be seen as a good season for them.

However, they are just 2 points ahead of Sociedad who are in 7th place and are involved in 3-horse-race for who will qualify for Europe next season which they need a win to guarantee.

Their form has dipped recently which is why Ath. Bibao and Real Sociedad have caught up with them.

They have 3 wins from their last 6 league games but are winless in their last 2 league games.

Their away form is not too good – they lost their last away match 4-1 to Barcelona but won that prior away game and overall they have 2 wins and 3 losses from their last 5 away games.
