Supporters will protest the board at today's clash with Girona.

Baraja said: "They have competed all year at a high level. They are perhaps the most attacking team in LaLiga, the fastest in terms of their game. They have managed to get into the Champions League on their own merits. They have game-changing players on the wings and then a great finisher who has 20 goals in the middle.

"This translates into goals and points. They are a difficult team to beat and for us they are a team who give us the chance to compete at home against a good team. We had a good game in the reverse fixture but did not manage our advantage well in the final stretch. Valencia CF are always in the game at Mestalla."

On the protests, he said: "We can't control it. I would like to... this is the last game at home, in a season in which you all know that our expectations were to improve on last season and not suffer so much... Mestalla has been key to us enjoying a season with their understanding, affection and support.

"The team have been able to compete at a high level at times. Many young players have grown with the affection and understanding of the fans. I would like to have our fans behind us in the last game at Mestalla this season. I would like to dedicate this last effort to them."
