Real Sociedad (14th) v Valencia (3rd) - 20.00 local timeUnai Emery has decided to get as far away as possible from Mestalla, by Russian off to take over Spartak Moscow on a two year deal. Meanwhile, the side he is leaving behind, third-placed Valencia, already have a brand new coach (and hate figure for their moaning fans in about six months time) lined up, with Mauricio Pellegrino preparing to take over. This name might ring a bell to la Liga and Liverpool supporters, as he’s the same fella who played for Valencia for five seasons up to 2005, before moving onto Liverpool both as a footballer then a coach under Rafa Benítez, whom he followed to Inter Milan. The big advantage the Argentinean has ahead of beginning his work is that he already knows how fickle the fans can be in Mestalla. “Mauricio knows the club very well and knows what’s expected at Valencia, he knows the objectives,” revealed David Albelda,  “and that it’s a team that first needs to be in the Champions League and from that point try to get as far as possible in all the other competitions.” Exactly what Unai Emery achieved in fact, during his spell at the club which still ended up in boos and jeers. LLL Prediction - Away win
