Eighth is Valencia CF's highest position to date in 2018/19
The win against SD Huesca enabled Valencia CF to get into the mix for the European places in LaLiga, rising six positions in the table.
2018 ends with Marcelino's men in eighth position, thanks to the Matchday 17 triumph against the division's bottom placed side, losses for rivals Levante, Celta Vigo and Espanyol, and draws for Girona, Valladolid and Eibar.
The placing is their best of the season so far, and they are now just 4 points off Real Betis in the final European spot.
