THE TEAM NEWS
- Valencia return to action desperate to make a fast start and push on towards the Champions League places as they sit just four points behind Real Sociedad in fourth place and they come up against Levante in a local derby.
- They have an injury doubt over central defender Gabriel who will be given as long as possible to recover from his slight knock otherwise Mangala will be brought into central defence.
- Maxi Gomez is fit again after various injury problems and he should be able to start alongside Rodrigo in attack although he is expected to split minutes with French forward Kevin Gameiro.
Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Cillessen; Wass, Diakhaby, Gabriel, Gaya; Ferran Torres, Dani Parejo, Coquelin, Goncalo Guedes; Rodrigo, Maxi Gomez
Unavailable: Piccini (Injured), Garay (Injured), Kondogbia (Suspended)
Doubtful: Gabriel (Injured), Maxi Gomez (Injured)
- Levante return to action sitting eight points above the relegation zone and they will be motivated to keep picking up points to avoid being dragged in as well as getting a result against their local rivals.
- They will know they need to improve their away form if they are to get anything out of this match having lost a league-high 11 games on the road which shows the extent of their task coming into his game.
- From the last match where they drew with Granada, they welcome back Sergio Postigo from suspension so the central defender could well come back into the eleven at the expense of Bruno.
Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Aitor Fernandez; Miramon, Ruben Vezo, Postigo, Tono; Campana, Vukcevic, Radoja, Bardhi; Morales; Roger Marti
Unavailable: Ivan Lopez (Injured)

Valencia are one team that will likely benefit from the break having had a busy schedule due to their Champions League commitments and a whole host of injuries. They have had a chance to regroup on what has been a reasonable season so far and they can push for a top four place. They will strongly fancy their chances against their local rivals and with Levante abysmal on their travels, expect a comfortable home win here.
