Valencia defender Ezequiel Garay believes his side can capitalise on Barcelona’s midweek European exit for their league game on Saturday.
Los Che, who held the Catalan giants to a 1-1 draw at the Mestalla earlier in the campaign, travel to the Camp Nou to take on Ernesto Valverde’s side, who lost 3-0 at Roma on Tuesday.
“We are aiming to get a victory at the Camp Nou, as we do in every game,” Garay told Radio Marca.
“There is an idea that they will be damaged from their defeat and this could potentially disrupt their game on Saturday because defeats like that are very tough to take.
“We always look to take advantage of any situation which may benefit us but we are also know just what Barcelona are capable of and you have to respect that.
“We want to bring joy to our fans and secure another three points to continue in our current form.
“Also, we are very well placed to qualify for the Champions League positions and this is a vital part of our project.”
