Valencia again experienced fatigue last week at Mallorca with a score of 4-1. The host made almost no mistakes in the match and surprisingly Valencia only managed to shoot one shot on target and successfully converted into the only goal.

Impressively, the Blaugrana have yet to admit defeat in the last five matches when playing away at all competitions. In addition, Barca have also never lost in their fourteen battles to this stadium before.

In contrast, Valencia, despite being unbeaten at home this season, have lost points in five of their last ten matches at this stadium.

The match prediction will be very interesting for both teams, because they both want to save the winning points with good reason.

Barca do not want to lose three points, because if you draw or lose the match later, automatically rivals Real Madrid will easily overtake the first position that will compete against the bottom team, Valladolid Monday morning.

Meanwhile, Valencia as the host will play all-out to improve the record head to head for Barca and try to continue to head to the Champions League zone which is only four points adrift of Sevilla.
