BARCELONA continue their La Liga title defence with a tough trip to face Valencia.
After scraping their way past Ibiza in the Copa Del Rey, Barca are back on the road as they head to a ground where they were held to a 1-1 draw last season.
This season’s title race in La Liga is turning into a classic, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid locked on 43 points.
Valencia are outside of the European spots and will be keen to hit back after a torrid 4-1 defeat to Mallorca last time out.
What time does Valencia vs Barcelona kick off?
THIS La Liga clash is set for Saturday, January 25.
Kick-off at the Mestalla will be at 3pm UK time.
Valencia have a fairly dismal record against the Catalan giants on their own ground.
They’ve not won a game here against Barcelona since 2008, while the last La Liga triumph was a year earlier in 2007.
Is Valencia vs Barcelona on TV and can I live stream it?
UNFORTUNATELY this game won’t be shown live in the UK.
It falls under the blanket ban on Saturday games between 2.45pm and 5.15pm.
