Valencia v Getafe Sky Sports Football, 6.30pm
Valencia were beaten at Barcelona last time out but they are seriously strong at home with eight wins in their last ten matches - the two exceptions were losses to Barca and Real Madrid.

Los Che are heading for a return to the Champions League, although Getafe can be awkward opponents. Nine of their 12 La Liga defeats this season were by just one goal.
