Valencia is in 10th place with 16 points and are looking to stay in the top of the table. They’ve been a perfect .500 at home, but are looking to beat a struggling Real Valladolid team. Valladolid sit in 17th place with 11 points and have struggled on the road where they have a 1-2-3 record.
Valladolid defender Antonio Rukavina is playing against his former boss with the Serbia Under-21 team in 2006/07, current Valencia manager Miroslav Djukic.
“It’s the first time I play against him, but more important to me is our team and that we prepare well,” Rukavina said, via ESPN FC. “Last year we played a very good game there, we lost by one goal we all remember, and now I hope we can get a good result.”
Argentina international and Valencia’s Pablo Piatti could get more playing time after a strong performance in Switzerland. His pair of goals helped Valencia get the win over St Gallen in UEFA Europa League play.
“Piatti is increasingly more confident and doing things better. I’m sure he will continue to improve and (will continue) regaining confidence,” Djukic said.
