Valencia, who reached the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League in 2013 and the semi-finals of the Europa Ligue in 2014, finished behind FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico in La Liga last season. The new Spanish league campaign gets under way on 22 August, between the two legs of the play-off...
This will be the second time the two clubs have met in European competition. In 1980-81, Valence knocked AS Monaco out in the last 32 of the Cup Winners Cup (3-3 at the Louis-II, 2-0 at Mestalla).
