Boosted by midweek Champions League exploits, Malaga and Valencia will both be feeling confident at La Rosaleda on Saturday.
Malaga secured top spot in Group C by drawing 2-2 away to Zenit St Petersburg despite fielding a weakened side, whilst Valencia grasped qualification from Group F by drawing 1-1 with Bayern Munich despite being reduced to ten men before half time.
This game promises to be a fascinating one, with Malaga only a point ahead of Valencia and both sides keen to put down a marker in the race for fourth.
Los Boquerones have the home advantage, but Los Che are in better form.
“The important thing now is to fight to get into the Champions League qualification places,” said Valencia defender Ricardo Costa. “We’re close, but we must be careful with Malaga, who have a great team.”
Kick off: Saturday November 24, 7.00 (BST)
