Storylines

Barcelona: It's been a busy time for Barca with league play and Copa del Rey action, and we've seen Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez earn some rest. It's hard to tell how Barca may come out in this one with Champions League around the corner, but the club has the depth to get a result no matter who plays. Barca's possession can give Valencia a bunch of trouble and sees them as the strong favorite to win.

Valencia: The injury bug has hit Valencia all season long, and the team's two best players have been out for a couple months now in Geoffrey Kondogbia and Goncalo Guedes. But they are nearing their returns and Valencia has been able to earn some results in recent weeks to create a bunch of momentum. They'll gladly settle for a draw here if they can manage. 

Barcelona vs. Valencia prediction
