Despite a late surge, Valencia could not achieve qualification for the Champions League last season and will instead play in the Europa league on the back of their 5th placed finish in the Primera Liga. Roberto Soldado scored 24 La Liga goals for Los Ches and will be hard to replace following his departure to Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and the signing of veteran Portuguese striker Helder Postiga doesn't look to have filled the void. One positive for the home side is that their pre-season results have been reasonably good and they wil begin their La Liga campaign following back-to-back wins against Serie A side Internazionale and Premier League side Everton.
Malaga's financial troubles have resulted in them being banned from taking part in this season's Europa League despite a creditable sixth placed finish in La Liga last season. Former Real Madrid manager Bernd Schuster joined in the summer following Manuel pellegrini's move to Premier League side Manchester City and has struggled to bring in any quality signings to replace the likes of Isco, Julio Baptista and Jeremy Toulalan who have all left the club. Roque Sant Cruz is the most notable name to have joined Los Boquerones on a permanant basis having been on loan from Manchester City last season and Malaga look to have plenty of room for improvement judging by their loss to Aston Villa in pre-season.

Both sides made the most of their home advantages last season as Malaga won 4-0 at La Rosaleda before Valencia were equally as dominant in the most recent Primera Liga encounter at this venue where they enjoyed a 5-1 scoreline.
