Derby match of the Group “F” in which the two best teams meet, and which probably will secure the placement in the next round. Both team currently have 9 points and still are not sure, because the Belarusian champions BATE Borisov is the third with only two points less.
However, Valencia and Bayern have nine points, three more than the aforementioned companion, so with victory in this match Valencia will secure the next round, while the German giant Bayern Munich then would need to defeat BATE Borisov in the last round.
If this match finish with a draw then the last round will decide,which again would suit for both teams.
Valencia have a bigger motive, because they never defeated the Bavarians, and until they these two clubs have already played six matches in European cups.
