Atletico Madrid travel to Valencia in the all Spanish second leg of the Europa League semi-final, as Diego Simeone’s side go into the game with a 4-2 advantage, making them strong favourites to progress into the final with Ladbrokes.
Valencia will go into the game with two very important away goals, but know that it will be a very difficult task on Thursday evening as they face the attacking prowess of Atletico striker Radamel Falcao.
The 2004 Europa League winners currently sit in third place in La Liga and with a six point advantage over fifth place, Champions League football looks all but guaranteed next campaign.
Valencia go into the game on the back of a 4-0 win over Real Betis so they have come into goal scoring form at the ideal time.
Having not lost at home in the Europa League since 2002, Unai Emery will be confident his side can maintain their unbeaten record with a win over Madrid.
As for Atletico, they go into the game in a great run of form, winning their last three in all competitions. They have also won six of their last eight matches.

Radamel Falcao will be looking to come up with the goals again for his side. The in-form striker scored two in the first leg and has netted 32 across all competitions this campaign.
Valencia were 1-0 winners in this fixture back in September in La Liga, so will have high hopes of coming out on top again this week.
