Valencia captain David Albelda has insisted that anything other than a victory against Real Betis this evening would be a failure.
Los Che host the Verdiblancos at the Mestalla looking for the three points that could take them above Malaga into fourth position.
And the veteran midfielder has reiterated the importance of the match.
“We are seventh, but we are so close to fourth place,” he told reporters. “This isn't going to be decisive, but it will be important to take that step forward.
“If we don't get three points that is a step back in our goal of finishing in the Champions League places.”
