Valencia CF like a challenge

With Marcelino in charge the team compete in every game and the story won’t be any different at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Valencia CF will arrive at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan at the weekend with the intention of cementing themselves in fourth place with three points, with the squad well aware how important a win against one of their Champions League rivals could be come the end of the campaign. Five games are left at Mestalla, which will have a big impact on the squad hitting their target, but Saturday’s game (16:15CET) is a chance to pull further clear.

Marcelino’s squad enjoy a challenge, and there can be no bigger hurdle than the fact that Valencia CF haven’t won at this ground since 2004. Vicente and Ruben Baraja both scored back then, and it has been a long wait for three points since. Under new coach Vincenzo Montella, Sevilla have lost two games. Real Betis and Atletico Madrid took three points at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and scored five goals apiece in the process. RCD Espanyol, Levante and Getafe have all taken points from Los Nervionenses too.

Valencia CF will continue to just focus on their next game, with Saturday bringing with it a potentially key game for both teams’ European dreams. Only Dani Parejo, Martin Montoya and Santi Mina know what it feels like to win at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, but the rest of the squad will be keen to share a similar experience this weekend as Marcelino’s men search for more points to put towards their impressive tally.
