The Mestalla will host its first Liga BBVA game under Nuno Espírito Santo against a confident Málaga CF side looking for their first win away to Valencia for 59 years.

Team news

Nuno has selected 19 players, including Rodrigo Moreno, who was a doubt with a muscle injury. The suspended Rodrigo De Paul is definitely out. Málaga boss Javi Gracia will be without the suspended duo Sergio Paulo Barbosa 'Duda' and Vitorino Antunes, but Ezequiel Rescaldani and Juanpi Añor return.

The Portuguese manager spoke about playing in front of home fans: "We've felt their support; now it's our turn to help carry on this ambition, and do what the those who believe in us want us to do". Javi Gracia spoke about his side's good start and their desire for three more points: "We have to take advantage of our good form in Valencia. We can win two consecutive games, which isn't easy".
