Third force in La Liga, with a delay from the first two unbridgeable, but 5 points clear of the pair Levante/Espanyol, Valencia (3rd, 10-7-4 31:22 37 pts) lost on Wednesday night 0-2 at the Nou Camp, and said goodbye to the King’s Cup. Unai Emery’s boys have two remaining objectives: to remain close 3rd in La Liga and make the best possible way in the Europa League.
To remain for the fourth year in row in the Spanish elite division, Sporting Gijon (19th, 5-4-12 20:39 19 pts) with 4 points behind from salvation, must rely on Inaki Tejada. He debuted drawing with Osasuna (1-1), and he is confirmed until the end of the season. Valencia is clearly favored: the eleven Asturian’s, are the less solid defense in La Liga.
