Even though Madrid are eight points behind Barca with six games to play, Albiol - now back from his ban - says his side still have a chance of winning the title.
"The league has not been decided yet," he said.
"We have to give everything, but I have faith in my team and I think we'll win in Valencia."
Albiol, who made over 100 league appearances for Los Che, is set to start as coach Jose Mourinho is expected to make changes ahead of the visit of Barca on Wednesday.
"I have to be in the best possible condition to help my team," the defender said.
"We have got to the fundamental part of the season, when titles are decided."
