Swansea have had a decent start to the season and the club will be in a buoyant mood ahead of the tie after becoming the first side to prevent Liverpool from winning this season after Monday’s 2-2 draw.
There will be a couple of notable absentees from the Swansea line-up with Pablo Hernandez being the biggest omission after the Spaniard failed to recover from a hamstring injury in time for the game.
Neil Taylor is also another casualty on the injury list as he is still nursing a thigh injury meanwhile Leon Britton is also unavailable after getting sent off in the side’s triumph over Petrolul Ploiesti in the qualifying round.
Despite suffering a rib injury on Monday, Wilfried Bony is still expected to feature in the game although the Ivorian will have a late fitness test to decide his fate.
However, Valencia will be hoping that Thursday’s game will be the kickstart their season needs after the Andalusian side have only won 1 out of their first 4 games in La Liga.
New manager Miroslav Dukic is expected to field a much different squad to the one that lost to Betis over the weekend with several major names expected to be dropped to the bench.
Dukic is expected to drop Oriol Romeu, Diego Alves, Victor Ruiz and Joao Pereira ahead of the game after failing to impress the manager.
It means that the likes of Paco Alcacer and Antonio Barragan will be given the nod to see whether Valencia can pick up their form and get their campaign back on track.
Dukic will be without Michel Herrero for the tie though as the midfielder is suspended following an incident picked up with Levante last year during their Europa League campaign.
Although the Mestalla is always an intimidating place to try and pick up some points, Swansea will be hoping that they can capitalise on Valencia’s poor form and possibly steal a win that would give them a dream start to their Europa League bow.
