Worth mentioning: Barcelona and Valencia met just before the summer break, when they contested in the final of Copa Del Rey at the end of May. Surprisingly for many, Valencia lifted the trophy after scoring two goals in the first period, and the solitary Leo Messi strike in the second half was not enough for the Catalans. Now Barcelona are without a victory over that opponent in the last three meetings. Neither side was able to score more than two goals in any of the last seven H2H clashes. Three of the last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, while four witnessed goals at both ends.
