[[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.

Bouncing back

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.

Barça on a good run

After seeing off Seville 5-1 at the Nou Camp last weekend, Barça also won 0-4 against Apoel in Nicosia on Tuesday.
