Two games that can secure safe passage to the Champions League

Beating Getafe CF and Celta Vigo would confirm at least a fourth-placed finish, regardless of what Real Betis and Villarreal CF are capable of doing

Valencia CF are preparing for an important week, one which can secure Champions League football as quickly as possible. Despite failing to take any points against FC Barcelona on Saturday, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen in great form, the team’s excellent season to date has allowed them into a position where in LaLiga’s match day 33 they are looking very good indeed.

With a 13-point gap over fifth-placed Real Betis, Valencia CF can secure Champions League football for themselves this week, should they take six points against Getafe CF on Wednesday (19:30CET) and versus Celta Vigo on Saturday (16:15CET). Marcelino and his squad are very motivated to get themselves over the line, especially after two poor seasons for the club. Through hard work and focus they are set to get their rewards for a phenomenal season.

During Wednesday’s midweek fixture Valencia CF face Getafe CF at Mestalla, with only Real Betis and Villarreal CF looking to catch them. CD Leganés and UD Las Palmas will be their own opponents, but three points for Marcelino’s side would be another step to counting Villarreal CF out of the top-four race.

If Valencia CF can take three points on Wednesday, they will head to Vigo knowing that another victory would mathematically secure their place in the Champions League regardless of what happens elsewhere. First, however, they must take things step by step and aim for success at Mestalla. The home fans are waiting to cheer their players towards what would be a huge achievement.
