Jose Bordalas is ready for Barcelona

Valencia head coach Jose Bordalas says his team have an "ambitious mentality" and head to Barcelona on Sunday full of belief they can pick up a positive result.

Los Che are 5/1 to win at the Camp Nou, with hosts Barcelona 1/2 and the draw a 7/2 chance.

Decent start for Valencia

As of writing, Valencia sit eighth in La Liga having collected 12 points from their opening eight games and are level on goal difference with Sunday's opponents Barcelona.

Bordalas' men are without a win in four league matches but have faced Real Madrid and Sevilla during that period.

When I don't win, I'm not happy. It's what I transmit to my players.

Valencia finished fourth in back-to-back seasons in 2018 and 2019 but have taken a dip in recent campaigns, finishing ninth and then 13th last term.

However, the 57-year-old insists they are determined to take another step forward this season and should have little to fear from Barcelona.

Blunt Barca

The Catalan giants have won only one of their last four league games and have failed to score in recent meetings with Cadiz and Atletico Madrid.

Speaking during his press conference ahead of the trip to Barcelona, Bordalas said: "I always want to win. When I don't win, I'm not happy. It's what I transmit to my players.

"The team are in good form, despite having gone several match days without winning. We go there with the utmost respect for FC Barcelona, but we are Valencia CF and we have an ambitious mentality."

He added: "We are only thinking about playing well and winning the game. I am very realistic and I believe in work, not dreams. We all have dreams as humans, but it is work that gives you the ability to achieve important things."
