"We've had the international break, which has made us work harder and go into Sunday's game in the best way possible. We know that we're up against opposition who are chasing us, and we know that we need the three points We need to use the home advantage to our favour," he told journalists.
"The three points are fundamental. It's also important to note that we have two consecutive games at home; we have to be strong there."
Garay and his teammates are determined to make the fans at Mestalla happy in those two games -and for the rest of the season. He underlined the commitment of the squad to moving Valencia CF up the standings in the final ten games of the 2016/17 campaign.
"We always try to give 100%. Sometimes things don't work out, because of circumstances in the game, but we always go out there to try and win. We want to get Valencia CF back up as high as possible in the table and put the club where it belongs and deserves to be. Voro is very well-liked in the dressing room, and very respected. He makes us feel good both on and off the pitch."
"We are focused on playing, on winning and trying to give the fans the joy that they deserve every weekend that they come to see us. We're all working towards the same objective."
