Aleix Vidal is the only injury worry for the home side.

Valencia Team News & Preview
Valencia will be dreading their trip to Barcelona this week.
Los Che have been very poor on their travels this season and have lost eight of their 14 games away from home. Furthermore, Barcelona have a terrific record against them.
The away side are having a very poor season by their standards and things are unlikely to get better against a team like Barcelona.
Valencia will be without the services of Moreno, Mina, Nani and Suarez for this game.
Predicted Valencia Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Alves; Montoya, Mangala, Garay, Gaya; Soler, Perez, Parejo; Cancelo, Zaza, Orellana

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Barcelona’s last 7 games in La Liga. A high scoring game seems likely here.
Barcelona vs Valencia Prediction
Barcelona are firm favourites to win here. After the loss against Deportivo last week, they cannot afford to drop more points. Real Madrid are already five points ahead and Barcelona need the three points here.
The home side are in better form and are far superior in terms of quality. This should be a routine win for Luis Enrique’s men against an out of form Valencia side.
Barcelona 3-0 Valencia
