Injury and training report

David Albelda has been ruled out of the squad for one month, following his surgery.
David Navarro and Chori Dominguez have been training normally in the last few days and Tino Costa has begun training normally also, although his recovery will probably last few more days, but he should be ready for Valencia's next match against Deportivo.

Aritz Aduriz will miss the Deportivo match due to suspension as he got his 5th yellow card in the last match against Levante.

Unai Emery put Tino Costa, Navarro and Chori in a training match in order to get some minutes of playing time. The training match was interesting because it pitted some of the first team players against the B team players.

The first team players were Saul on the goal, Bruno, Navarro, R. Costa and Mathieu in defense, while Joaquin, Tino, Banega and Vicente were in the midfield and Chori in attack. They played against the B team players and won the match 7-2.
Sofiane Feghuoli also played in the match replacing Tino Costa as he is still not fully match fit. Feghuoli also scored 2 goals, while Joaquin scored 3 goals.
