Valencia finished a lowly sixteenth in the La Liga table last season although they look set to achieve a higher finish this time around. Los Che are currently eleventh in the standings despite failing to win any of their previous four encounters. There have been recent back-to-back away defeats at Girona and Getafe.

Previously to this, there was a goalless draw against Celta Vigo where the team failed to register a shot on target and Ruben Baraja will be hoping for an improvement when Barcelona roll into town. However, it’s more than plausible that we will see a low-scoring clash considering that just eleven goals have been scored in seven home games.

Barca’s defence of their title doesn’t appear to be too convincing considering that they are seven points off the summit following a 4-2 reverse at home to Girona. It’s looking difficult for Xavi’s team right now although they are warm favourites to record a victory and get their campaign back on track.

A low-scoring clash could be on the cards when you look at the previous fixtures between the two sides, with Los Che in no mood to play expansive football. They are averaging little more than one goal per La Liga clash and we can see Under 2.5 Goals being an outcome, with a Barcelona 1-0 victory potentially on the cards.
