Valencia is already assured a spot in next season's Champions League but there is a big difference between finishing 3rd or 4th in La Liga. Valencia tried to hang on to their 3rd spot tonight against Community rival Villarreal.
"Finishing third, getting into the Champions League again and being amongst the best teams in Europe is the goal for us," said VCF goalkeeper Vicente Guiata. "We all know what is at stake and how important winning the two games at Mestalla will be for us. If we win them, then we will take third place." Valencia won the first game against Osasuna 4-0.
