VAL vs ESL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Valencia can rise as high as 7th in the table when they host Espanyol in La Liga at Mestalla Stadium, in Valencia, Spain, on Sunday night (IST).
The Los Che turn their attention to the domestic action after earning a precious 2-0 away victory against Celtic in the Europa League. They are the hosts and the favorites to win the game, thanks to the contrasting form of both the teams.
Valencia are unbeaten in the last six games in all competitions, and five in the league. In fact, they have lost just once in La Liga since early December, a big reason for their rise on the table.
Espanyol meanwhile are heading South as far as their position on the table is concerned. The fall has been so brisk that from challenging for the European places, they are now drawing closer to the bottom three.
In the last 12 league games, Espanyol have lost a staggering nine games, winning twice. But thanks to the start to the season, the club from Barcelona is just 3 points away from Valencia.
