After two successive titles, Valencia CF had suffered a shocking blip in form at the start of the 2029/30 La Liga campaign - even dropping to one place outside the relegation zone!
On the back of a second successive league and cup double, Valencia CF's efforts to rebuild were somewhat hampered by a lack of finances. That meant putting our trust in youth while the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid went on made spending sprees. Things were about to get a bit tricky...
Valencia CF had just secured back-to-back titles in emphatic style, undefeated and racking up 102 points. We backed that up by completing the double-double, also winning the Copa del Rey for the second successive season.
Our exciting Valencia CF side were riding high on the wave of a first La Liga title in 24 years in the 2027/28 campaign. But we knew a wounded Barcelona and Real Madrid would come back fighting.
Heading into the final two months of the 2027/28 campaign, Valencia CF were tantalisingly close to their first La Liga title since 2004. But Real Betis were hot on our tails, just 2 points behind in the league and our opponents in the upcoming cup final.
