Valencia have taken 16 out of a possible 18 points at home this season, with Bilbao the only team to avoid defeat. Valencia have scored three goals in each of their five wins at Mestalla
[[DES_1]] After victories against Almeria and Sevilla, Barça will be looking to make it three straight league wins when they visit Valencia on Sunday night, but Mestalla has proved a tough place to win for visiting teams this season, with Valencia taking 16 points from their first six home games.
Strong at home
Only Athletic Club Bilbao have managed to stop Valencia scoring at home this season, holding them to a goalless draw earlier this month, whilst Malaga (3-0), Espanyol (3-1), el Cordoba (3-0), Atletico Madrid (3-1) and Elche (3-1) have all been suffered big defeats.
After a disappointing season last year, Valencia have bounced back and currently sit fourth, four points behind Barça. Despite taking just one point from their last two games, Nuno Espirito’s side are already looking like firm favourites to be challenging for a Champions League spot come next May.
