Valencia host Sociedad at the Mestalla Stadium for the 25th tie of the season’s La Liga fixtures on Sunday. The late afternoon tie will close the day's action as the hosts look to maintain a Champions League spot in the final third of the season.
They would still remain two points behind Real with a win but would pull eight clear of sixth placed Villarreal. Simon Zaza has recovered his scoring form after a recent slump and will once again take charge of their scoring duties. Behind him, Rodrigo will play as a second striker as they chase a third straight win in all competitions.
Sofiedad in 13thvposition will be looking for a win to inch them closer to thevtop half of the log. Adnan Januzaj and Asier Illaramendi will be the key midfield figures for the away side, while Juanmi and Willian José will lead the attack. Hector Moreno will be the key defence pillar.
