Valencia coach Mauricio Pellegrino will be looking to put the disappointing weekend defeat to Betis behind him as his side begin their Copa del Rey campaign.

However, he will be without the services of injured duo Sergio Canales and David Albelda, both of whom are suffering respective leg and hamstring injuries.

The hosts' coach Oriol Alsina has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash following his sides 2-0 weekend Segunda Division B win over Valencia II.

Alsina is likely to persist with the same starting XI for the encounter with La Liga outfit as he looks to cause a first-leg upset.

  • Llagostera have won one of their last four games at the Estadi Municipal.
  • The Segunda Division B side have already claimed a scalp over Los Che having defeated their 'B' team at the weekend.
  • Llagostera are having temporary stands put up for the encounter which will boost the capacity of the Estadi Municipal to 2,400.
  • Valencia have lost five of their last six games away from home.
  • Los Che frontman Roberto Soldado (pictured, right) is just eight goals away from his 50th in all domestic competitions since his arrival in 2010.
  • The Copa del Rey encounter will be the first time Valencia have played Llagostera in their history.
