Valencia looking to claim fourth place


2018/19 La Liga

Round 38

Saturday 18 May
 

The final round of La Liga fixtures for the 2018/19 takes place on Saturday 18 May, with the focus falling on the race for the final UEFA Champions League berth.
 

Getafe will hope to leapfrog Valencia in the race for fourth

Valencia, who defeated Deportivo Alaves 3-1 this past weekend, currently occupy the coveted fourth position which will grant passage to the premier continental competition for 2019/20, but they have the same points tally as Getafe, while Sevilla are just two points adrift.

Valencia’s season closes with a trip to Real Valladolid at Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla and coach Marcelino’s side know that a win will secure fourth-spot thanks to their superior head-to-head record against Getafe. In addition, Valladolid have little left to play for this season, with their safety from relegation secured thanks to a win at Rayo Vallecano.

Sevilla are still in with a chance of securing a Champions League berth

Getafe will need Valladolid to do them a big favour and also better Valencia’s result in their match at home to Villarreal (another side safe from the prospect of a drop to the second tier) at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Sevilla are the outsiders as far as the race for fourth place is concerned, but they will hope to defeat Athletic Bilbao at home and keep their fingers crossed that both Valencia and Getafe drop points in their respective clashes.
