FC Barcelona travel to Mestalla to face Valencia on Sunday after losing to Granda in the league when they had a chance to move at the top of the table. Now, they not only need to win all remaining games, but hope that both Madrid clubs lose theirs as well in the process. They had a good run in the league, the only defeat being in El Clasico this year, and lost to Granda last night, bottling the chance to win the league. 

The league table is getting spicy as just three points separate the top forum and anything can happen in the remaining five games of the season. Real Madrid are yet to face Sevilla, while Barcelona have to face Diego Simione’s side as well/. Valencia have not had the greatest of seasons due to off the pitch issues with the manager and the board, as well as letting go of key players like Ferran Torres, Rodrygo, and Dani Parejo as well. They sit in 14th place in the league, having won only two of their last seven games.
