Match Facts: 

Valencia CF (13th, 29 pts):

-Voro's troops find themselves on a three-game winning streak on home turf in LaLiga Santander, with recent victories over Athletic Club, Real Madrid and CD Leganes cementing the club's best run of form this season. 

-Valencia have emerged victorious from four of their last five meetings with Sporting in LaLiga Santander, with the visitors' sole success in that run coming at Mestalla last season, when Toni Sanabria struck the only goal of the game. 

R. Sporting (19th, 17 pts):
