Next Match: away to Atletico Madrid, December 15
Europe: UEFA Europa League (Group A)
Goalkeeper Vicente Guiata is expected to make his return to action for Valencia's Copa del Rey match at Gimnastic de Tarragona on Sunday. The Spaniard has not featured for just under a month since hurting his shoulder, but is likely to come in for Diego Alves in the Cup tie. Sergio Canales has warned that his side should not take the Catalan team for granted, telling reporters "any team can make your life complicated" and stressed the need to get a win in the game, and their final Europa League match the following week, so that the team can prepare for their next league match against Atletico Madrid "in the right frame of mind".
