With 6 previous meetings, the books are fairly balanced so tonight could sway the results. Valencia will obviously be without two of the former stars David Villa and David Silva who both left for Barcelona and Man City respectively this summer. Despite their absences Valencia appear to be coping well as they currently sit atop of the La Liga table.
We will be without Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville but most notably Wayne Rooney, but like Valencia we will be well equiped to cope with an inform Dimitar Berbatov as well as the likes of Owen, Macheda and Hernandez as options for his partner.
Our last 3 games against opposition in Spain have ended 0-0 and a worrying stat for us states we have only ever won one of 18 European matches away from home against Spanish sides (Deportivo in 2002).
