Valencia has found the coach, the talent, and the ambition.The last time Valencia played away from home it squandered an excellent opportunity to close the gap with Barcelona at the top of the Spanish league. Valencia traveled to the newly promoted Getafe a day after Barcelona had unexpectedly dropped two points when it was held by Celta Vigo to a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou.Besides the challenging rival, Valencia will also have to make do without two of the players that have been key to its dramatic improvement this season.Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia Toral said his team has a deep enough squad to overcome the absences of Zaza and Soler.Valencia has risen to second place ahead of both regular contenders Atletico Madrid, in third, and Real Madrid, in fourth. Valencia enters the 16th round five points behind the undefeated Barcelona, which is heavily favored against Deportivo La Coruna at home on Sunday.So Valencia needs to win to make sure it stays in touch, especially since Barcelona's following match is at Real Madrid.
