Although Valencia have never been able to go back to the top of the league, they nevertheless maintained an intimidating form throughout the competition. They have consistently been part of the top six in the past 17 weeks and were part of the top two on six non-consecutive occasions. Thus far, Los Che have yet to succumb to their enemies as of their eight fixtures in both La Liga and Copa del Rey.
Almeria fell into the drop zone once as of the 18th week of the season, and were only able to rank higher than the 10th spot once. The past few weeks were a mixture of hits and misses for the side, with wins they achieved against Real Betis, Celta, and Malaga, a draw with Getafe, as well as a defeat from Sevilla.
